Coaches, Therapists, and Space Holders, to The Soul Institute

– a gateway to learning compassion focused coaching and providing holistic support for your clients.

Regardless of your background or qualifications,

We acknowledge the dedication you have to being of service to others offering facilitation and guidance towards healing. As professionals it’s important that we are not only striving to better ourselves as space holders, but also that we invest in our own continued education and development. That's why here at TCI we offer both a unique personalized mentoring program as well as our highly acclaimed accredited Certificate in Holistic Compassionate Coaching.

Our accredited Certificate in Holistic Compassionate Coaching is a 6 month-long, trauma informed certification which takes your expertise to new heights. Through this comprehensive program, you will dive deep into what it means to truly embody a compassionate person-centered approach, you will fine tune your coaching skills with extensive in-person practice, you will gain a holistic understanding of mental wellbeing inclusive of various techniques to support your clients in their development, and you will become trauma-informed - which means having a deep understanding of the impacts of trauma on individuals and tailoring coaching practices to create a safe and supportive environment. It involves being aware of trauma triggers, practicing empathy and compassion, and integrating trauma-sensitive approaches to foster healing and growth. As a trauma-informed coach, you provide the necessary support, guidance, and tools to help clients navigate their healing journey with sensitivity

Our certificate program ensures that you have the credibility and accreditation with the EMCC to showcase your expertise, setting you apart as a trusted professional in the field.

If you’re seeking more individualized support, you may wish to explore the mentoring / supervision opportunities we offer. As part of ethical and responsible practice, we believe it to be imperative that all space holders also have someone to lean on and gain support from. You can find out more by scrolling down.

❝ Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.❞
