Certificate in Coaching Program FAQ

Certificate in Coaching (CC) Program 

It is designed to accompany the Institute retreats for those who sense a call to become trained as a coach. It is an advanced program for those who have completed the Certificate in Spiritual Direction program.

The Certificate in Coaching program will equip you to support clients to reach the goals that are inspired by God, to work on living and leading in Jesus’ easy yoke, and to improve awareness, effectiveness, and competence in personal life, spiritual life, and leadership or work.  

This builds on the Certificate in Spiritual Direction program which equips you to facilitate the client engaging with God, deepening their intimacy with Jesus, discerning God’s will, and growing spiritually.

This is an online course completed with a cohort. It includes:

  • 1 Institute retreat (You can choose any scheduled retreat.)
  • 12 online classes (12 monthly 90 minute classes)
  • 6 live supervision sessions with a group.
  • Receiving a minimum of 8 coaching sessions from one of Soul Shepherding’s Sr. Coaches at a discounted rate.
