What is Soul Centric Coaching?
“Soul Centric Coaching is for experienced coaches who wish to work at the highest level with their clients by awakening and safeguarding the deepest aspects of who their clients are. It involves the commitment from the coach to drop their usual armoured ways of being and show up. Only when the coach does this are the essential qualities of their clients recognised and manifested in the world."
For your coaching business, Soul Centric Coaching is about working with clients who are on a 'spiritual' quest to find what is missing from their life. These are the clients who are seeking answers to the very human questions such as 'How can I be more of who I am and be more authentic?' 'How can get more out of life? 'How can I feel more alive?'
For you, as a helping professional, Soul Centric Coaching means that you 'answer' these questions through a moment by moment commitment to dropping your armour and staying in full contact with the deepest aspect of who you are. It is an act of immense bravery and commitment that requires you to work on yourself first.
Developing yourself as a Soul Centric Coach means learning a technique called The My Map Method. This is a unique Soul Centric Coaching practice that brings about deep and lasting inner transformation for yourself and for your clients.
What is the My Map Method?
The My Map Method works by successfully combining a physical map with a practice that has a spiritual orientation. The physical map works in the same way a traditional map does, by acting as a visual guide to yours and your client's inner world. The practice helps to navigate the hectic and noisy mechanisms of our habitual personality traits or ego.
Together the physical map and the practice, chart both you and your client's route back to the peace and aliveness of the true self.
