Mindful Coach Certification
Guiding Mindful Change (GMC) was founded in 2000 by Billie Frances, a licensed therapist whose vision was to create a network of Mindful Change Coaches who would positively change the lives of thousands. That vision is realized and is continually growing with hundreds of certified coaches nationwide. GMC continues to set the standard for excellence in creating qualified, ethical and empowered coaches.
Most of GMC’s certified coaches utilize the skills within their profession and/or maintain successful coaching practices, and teams of coaches help fulfill GMC’s corporate contracts. GMC maintains its global headquarters in San Diego, California and supports a prosperous coaching network that is able to respond to both individual and corporate coaching needs in a timely and efficient manner.
What is Mindful Change Coaching?
Coaching facilitates behavioral change via a structured and supportive partnership between coach and client that will prepare the client to:
- Set both long term and short term goals
- Facilitate commitment to act on these goals
- Set action plans and monitor progress in attaining goals
- Develop strategies to utilize strengths most effectively
- Create focus and momentum where it is needed and wanted
- Celebrate personal and professional achievements
- Reveal obstacles that cause clients to feel “stuck” in certain areas
- Maximize potential in every area of life
- Achieve desired outcomes
- Fulfill dreams
What Makes Mindful Coaching Different?
At the heart of mindful coaching is awareness. Through attention and practice, mindful coaches learn to be more aware of essential harmony within all relationships and within all circumstances. And, when mindful coaches are aware of themselves and their clients, the coaching process naturally and powerfully reveals wholeness, balance, order and right action. Mindful Coaches do not impose their ideas or agendas upon their clients; rather they apply coaching techniques that fully allow their clients to discover pathways to their heart’s desires.
Mindful Life Coaching begins with the following beliefs:
- People are naturally whole and resourceful
- Balance is essential for fulfillment
- Clients are their own authority for change
- Change is promoted by mindful guidance, support, encouragement, and partnership
