Diploma in Life Coaching
7 December 2023
Our Life Coaching diploma path allows you to explore life coaching theory in depth. Over six modules you will learn core life coaching theories and skills and extend that knowledge by exploring related practices and approaches to coaching.
Your journey begins with two key modules: one introducing the core concepts, theories and issues in life coaching and a second which takes you inside the world of positive psychology coaching. You will learn how PPC works including theory, skills and techniques. You will also learn about professional issues and ethical considerations in our Professional Ethics module.
From here, you can choose your elective modules including motivational interviewing, mental health and understanding the psychology of high achievers.
By the end of the programme, you will have covered core positive psychology theory and explored a range of different approaches to life coaching.
