Christian Coach Training & Certification - CPD & Supervision - Find a Coach
We offer two stages of training that progressively form a deep foundation from which to help others move themselves forward in faith.
Underpinning each stage is cultivation of your own personal journey of purpose into whatever arena of life God's placed or is calling you.
Both can be followed through our 'open' courses that bring together individuals and groups from a range of settings, or brought in-house tailored to your particular context, organisational needs and timing.
A 5 session live online learning course
"This was an extremely valuable course with practical skills to be applied to a range of conversations. It has changed the way I think about and ‘do’ conversations. "
This is a conversations ‘course’ with a goal to transform our ordinary, everyday interactions into an occasion for:
· Listening in Love
· Hearing Hope
· Footsteps of Faith
Imagine conversations that have the possibility of enabling others to respond to their faith in their life journey. This is the vision of this ‘course’.
This is not a ‘course’ with lots of new knowledge or heaps of learning objectives.
It is simply a conversations ‘course’ that, using scripture, reminds us of some important God-given reflective skills and approaches that we can bring into our everyday conversations:
· Listening, deep listening
· Holding silence - what is that?
· Inviting reflection on what is heard and asking questions
· Considering the whisper of Godly perspectives
· Making choices and taking action
This conversations ‘course’ is run as a series of interactive and practical online workshops. Each workshop offers you the opportunity to explore a coaching-style approach and practice reflective skills within enabling conversations with each other.
This course does not teach you how to sort out the specific problems of others. It acknowledges that on occasions we may be called to tell, to sort, to offer wisdom directly from our life journey with God.
This course is about growing our confidence in our ability to have transforming conversations where we listen, listen in love, so that others can hear hope and take their own footsteps of faith.
'And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love'
1 Corinthians 13:13
We could call this a Christ-Centred Coaching approach to conversations, as the workshops will introduce and integrate some coaching-style tools and competences for use in everyday conversations. However, we are choosing to call it an ordinary conversations ‘course’ – honouring our ordinary everyday conversations on our discipleship journey and choosing to elevate them into extraordinary ones.
This is what Jesus does!

"I listen more and speak less, give space and when necessary, drop pebble questions. This allows the care seeker to find that space and their own solutions."
"I truly do feel empowered seeing how God can do profound work even through the smallest interactions, and I am encouraged that He is preparing me for something."
"I enrolled hoping to gain skills as a compassionate carer but I ended up getting a lot more from it. I noticed things about my interaction with my friends, family and colleagues that I didn’t realise were off.I have learnt a lot from this course, the sessions were so lively. Julie is such an amazing coach, she is soft spoken but full of energy."
"An inspirational discipleship tool that no church should be without!"
