Course Description

The Existential Academy are pleased to offer a package of two masters level modules in existential coaching as part of the Certificate in Existential Coaching. 

Students will acquire a grounding in both existential theory and practice through a combination of lectures and skills practice. Our groups are usuall small cohorts, shared with the NSPC MA in Existential Coaching, so participants get lots of personal attention and opportunity for practice.

Students will take two modules, each lasting 5 consecutive days. 

Programme of Study

You will need to attend two modules held over 5 consecutive days each

Skills in Existential Coaching

Students will have the opportunity to give and receive feedback from both their fellow students and the tutors.

Students will be asked to work with their own material in the course of these exercises, and the depth and nature of these disclosures will be the responsibility of each individual.  Issues of confidentiality will be clarified at the initial class meeting.

Students can choose between two options:

An outline of traditional coaching frameworks, essential skills and tools for existential coaching, and skills from other popular coaching traditions such as NLP. (Recommended for therapists branching into coaching)

An overview of different existential and humanistic theoretical frameworks and key philosophers, grounded in skills work. (Recommended for experienced coaches exploring existential paradigms)

Advanced Existential Coaching and Existential Leadership

This module will provide students with a focused approach to existential thinking and practice, covering the ideas of existential thinkers. The application of philosophical ideas to the practice of coaching will also be addressed, with particular focus on leadership issues.

Students will be expected to produce a written essay at the end of each module to consolidate their learning.
