(and watch client results soar)

Want to work with trauma as a coach?

This course will not only make you more trauma aware, but also equip you to support others around trauma, and make a real difference to clients.

By knowing your own trauma (we all have at least some), knowing what clients to work with (and which to refer), and having some simple practical tools; you can address trauma safely and effectively.

Through our radical new education model which reframes trauma from pathology to learning, you can coach on this topic within the appropriate boundaries we teach you.

Scared to touch trauma with clients because you’re not a therapist?

Fair enough. It's good to have a healthy respect for the subject. It’s big, and our collective understanding of it is still evolving.

BUT… as we come to realise that MOST (if not all) of us have it to some degree, ignoring it completely in coaching is likely holding you and your clients back from the range of growth and results available to you.

There IS a safe zone you can work in around trauma as a facilitator with many (not all) clients, but very few facilitators know what that is.

Deepening your trauma education from an embodied, science-based perspective and learning the somatic tools you need will allow you to confidently find this zone and access this deeper layer of work.

Trauma Coaching is your doorway into moving from OK to great in trauma healing. Both for yourself and your clients. You’ll add a layer of science-based depth to your trauma education, this time from an embodied perspective, and begin to understand and work with our new (hopeful) trauma paradigm.

You’ll learn to approach trauma with the respect it deserves with clients, when it is (and isn’t) ok to work with a client around trauma, and what to do when it isn’t.

You’ll have the opportunity to practice teaching a level of basic trauma education to your peers and using the somatic tools and skills you learn with them – you’ll also get some free trauma coaching in return.

When you receive your certification at the end of these 6 months you’ll be entirely ready to use what you’ve learned with your clients to improve their lives and be confident you are doing no harm.

Uncover the unique coaching superpower your trauma gave you

Transform the worst things that have happened to you into your greatest gifts for helping yourself and others. As you move beyond your own trauma, you’ll understand your clients responses more, allowing you to take what you do to the next level.

Be a part of the new embodied trauma paradigm

Learn the theory behind our new, hopeful paradigm. Be an active part of helping more people learn that it’s not their fault but it Is their responsibility – empowering them to create the life they are capable of instead of seeing themselves as broken.

Get science-based approaches to bring to your coaching

Add a solid understanding and practice of boundaries and psycho-education to what you already know. Then add specific science-based approaches to your toolkit to be confident that you’re doing no harm around trauma with clients.

A typical week on the course

There will be three main parts to the course: Live webinars, practice peer groups and homework (with additional self-care).

Live webinars will be on Wednesdays at 6pm UK time. Webinars will also be recorded to view on the learning platform afterwards, but attending a certain number live will be required for graduation.

Once you graduate you will be given a certificate as evidence of you graduating the course

If you’re a CEC graduate who wants to…

Specialise in and work more safely with trauma

Add trauma-related coaching tools to your toolbox

Work at an embodied level with your own trauma

Be a better movement or yoga teacher

…this certification is likely a good fit.

You’ll learn...

You’ll also…

If you’re here, you’re likely already on your way to being a pretty good facilitator. If you asked me what’s the bridge between a good facilitator and a great one? It’s in-depth personal work.

Teachers who’ve done the work are generally the ones I respect and want to learn from. They can create a different kind of learning experience, and their teachings continue to resonate in so many different ways at various moments throughout your life.

Doing your most profound trauma work is a way to access this level of facilitating yourself, and this course is designed to learn the technical, objective things you need to know. Being a trauma-sensitive facilitator is a fundamental human and ethical perspective we all need to have now, but this course goes way beyond that."

Important notice:

  1. You need to be well-resourced emotionally and have some stability and robustness to do this course. There will be multiple wellbeing checks both before the course and during, and you may be asked to continue the course at a later time if you aren’t resourced enough.

  2. This is an exploration of a space between coaching and therapy. Some people may find it too delicate, complicated or may not want to go into it. Some might find it unethical to be looking at this subject without a full therapy qualification, others might prefer to do a therapy qualification or refer clients who have trauma to a therapist. If you fit into any of these categories, this course likely isn’t a good fit.

Most of this course is live, but live sessions will be recorded and available on the learning platform for you to watch if you miss them. However you’ll need to attend a certain number of live sessions in order to get certified.

It starts on February 2nd and ends on July 27th.

You need to have completed CEC (The Certificate of Embodiment Coaching) to be able to complete the course, but you don’t need to be currently coaching or teaching.

You will need to attend a certain number of live sessions, your peer group sessions, complete a coursework journal and pass a graded coaching assessment to get certified.

Between 4 and 6 hours a week including homework and selfcare.

The sessions will be recorded and uploaded to the learning platform, but if you need to attend 80% of them live in order to graduate.

You’ll be able to get a refund up until the second live session, after that it won’t be possible. If you’re not able to complete the course for any of the reasons mentioned in the introductory session, you’ll be able to complete it next year.

Being resourced and the ability to stay centered are requirements for the course, and as all trauma work, this course is likely to bring up some turbulence.

We will have two personal assessments along the course, so you check in with yourself if life conditions have changed for you and we find the course might not be the best fit in those conditions. If this happens, you can pause your studies and re-continue the course next year.
