This professional certification program in life coaching at Sofia University is founded on the belief that true transformation requires experiencing a deeper holistic understanding of the body, mind, and spirit. The 14-week 100% online program incorporates weekly participation in online lessons, cohort discussions, real-time coaching practice, and opportunities for self-reflection.
This is a transpersonal approach to coaching that builds on both the International Coaching Federation’s core competencies and a proven framework, the GROW model. Participants deepen their transpersonal and transformative knowledge, engage in ongoing experiential practices, collaborate with colleagues, and practice coaching skill capacities within a safe and collaborating group process. The program begins and ends with a three-day virtual seminar and continues with online learning and discussions, teleconference coaching practice, and accredited coach mentoring. The program supports participants’ multiple coaching niches from external personal and professional businesses to internal company leadership positions.
Once the program is successfully completed, students receive the Transformative Life Coaching Certificate of Completion, which is recognized by the International Coaching Federation. Our goal is to provide students with the confidence to market and expand their coaching base, develop their own unique coaching style, and strengthen their leadership effectiveness to make a difference.

My experience at Sofia was lovely. I enjoyed each and every session and thanks to our guide Vicki, we got the best out of the course. She’s taught us and walked us through the rough and soft of what coaching is as a business and as a way of living.
