ThetaCoach Training and Certification

Life Coaching is a rapidly growing sector. The concept of coaching however is not a 'fad'. Indeed, the famous philosopher Socrates methodically asked questions and engaged in dialogue to derive truth and knowledge more than 2,000 years ago.

In modern day times however, a more succinct, and possibly exciting approach than that of 'Socratic questioning' has been developed, openly accessible not only to the philosophically minded.

With increasing beneficial results being gained from Life Coaching in both personal and business arena's, it is not surprising that so many people are seeking 'Coaching' to help them map out their life journey.

Upon completion of this training, students will receive official ThetaCoach ™ Certification, and be added to the unique online database of practitioners qualified as a ThetaCoach ™ Life Coach.

This will enable you to offer clients a unique approach to life coaching that brings outstanding clarity, and incredible results to the areas they desire to improve in their lives. Adding this training to your current repertoire of counselling and hypnotherapy skills will open up a whole new client base to you, and will make the therapy and coaching you offer to current clients even more effective. It's well known that the more effective your help is, the more clients will want to see you.

As a ThetaCoach ™ you will be among a small percentage of worldwide coaches that can help your clients make serious changes in their lives and excel more than they could ever had imagined.

The skills, tools and mind-set you will hold within you guarantees the most powerful and inspiring changes possible.

ThetaCoach is taught by experienced coaches and therapists Dr Tom Barber and Dr Sandra Westland.

Here is a recent testimonial ...

‘Tom’s coaching has been invaluable to me during a crucial period of my professional development. His ability to hear my stated aims and then to nudge me towards a congruent achievement of them has been both effective in terms of the outcomes and enjoyable also. He has helped me to get to where I wanted to go and helped me to check the ecology of these steps so that they become real.

Tom’s experience in business, publishing, training and as a therapist means that his use of anecdotes and ‘teaching tales’ has also been relevant and supportive and in this way he creates a atmosphere of conviviality in the work.

I would highly recommend Tom as a coach particularly for private therapists negotiating the sometimes complex and sensitive combined agendas of business and care."
