1. Nice Video! Excuse me for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard about – Taparton Casting Hives Takeover ? It is a good one off product for becoming a certified life-optimization coach and make money minus the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my friend after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical results with it.

  2. Hi there, yes unfortunately there are many fast, cheap and easy ways to become some sort of coach. The fastest, cheapest, easiest way is to just declare yourself a coach and glide on — you don’t even have to read a Tony Robbins book first. Literally anyone can decide they would make a great coach, build a website (or start making videos) and charge trusting people for their services. It’s scary.

    Given that coaching is an unregulated profession it leads to many unsuspecting consumers who sincerely desire a partner for positive change to get connected to an uneducated, and sometimes unscrupulous self-anointed “coach.”

    If you really want to help people, it’s best to do it the right way: get a legitimate education, and make sure that you can genuinely and effectively help people through evidence-based practices. Is it challenging to get a masters degree and/or doctorate in counseling psychology, and then pursue evidence based coach training on top of that? Yes, it is. (It’s hard to get through medical school and residency too). But there is a reason why a doctor should actually go to medical school before attempting work that has a huge impact on people’s lives, right?

    And let’s just pause for a moment and consider the potential consequences of seeking medical attention from anyone other than a qualified professional. And in the coaching realm, the potential consequences for a couple with young kids on the verge of divorce seeking help from a “relationship coach” who was a realtor two months ago before taking some online coaching course and building a website. That scenario happens all the time and it’s beyond unethical, in my opinion.

    If you want to be a true, trustworthy force of good in the lives of others, you must earn the right to serve in that role, and you have a moral responsibility to *actually* know what you are doing. And yes, it is hard work.

    As the founder and clinical director of Growing Self, I have have questionable life-coach types reach out to work with us all the time, and, because I take my responsibility to our clients to seriously, would never even consider working with one.

    If you would like to learn more about how to find a therapist or coach, what the differences in education and training mean, and what to look for to avoid getting involved with a bad therapist, ineffective marriage counselor or (God help you) a completely unqualified life coach, visit GrowingSelf.com.


    And if you would like to become a life coach, that’s great, but please make sure you are fully qualified to serve that role in someone’s life: finish college, get a masters degree in counseling, become licensed as a therapist, and then pursue coach training. That way you’ll be able to tell the difference between a mental health or personal growth situation (and will know what to do in either case) and you’ll also know how you effectively guide someone through a transformational (and ethical) process of growth and healing.
