Certification as a Gestalt Life Coach
Gestalt Life Coach Training - New Annual Training Begins in April 2018
Our career entry level program was established back in 1975 to teach the Gestalt Therapy approach to mental health professionals. Gestalt is based on the belief that a person most completely learns by being part of a personal experiential process. Our Gestalt Life Coach trainees learn Gestalt “from the inside out.” We offer a very effective Gestalt Life Coach training program consisting of workshops, lectures, book discussions, individual counseling experiences, weekly group participation and Staff interaction.
At graduation time, you'll be ready to present your thesis paper, multi-media presentation, or pre-approved special project demonstrating your understanding of Gestalt and its application. You'll be ready to embark on building a satisfying career as a Gestalt Life Coach, or to utilize these skills in your own profession.
This course is repeated yearly to a fresh group of approved trainees, who complete the approximate 200 hours of participation. We invite you to attend in person, but if necessary by webconference, as your schedule permits. The quarterly weekend workshops and the weekly theory classes are presented by our staff members. Sometimes fellow graduates and guest faculty members from other institutes show up as guest advisors. The year-round program is open to everyone. College degrees or prior knowledge of Gestalt are helpful but not required to attend, although Gestalt Life Coach candidates are pre-screened for compatibility.
The general public may attend many of our workshops during the year without participation in our Certified Gestalt Life Coach training program. However, if you choose to apply for enrollment, you may do so by contacting our office. Join us to change your life and the lives of others by becoming A certified Gestalt Life Coach!
Visa/MC/Amex accepted. Email us or call with your training questions, and we will reply promptly.
Please let us know if you would like to join our Training Program and have special questions.
