Coaching, as an alternative to psychotherapy, is a growing field. According to the Canadian newspaper The National Post, personal coaching (which includes life coaching, career coaching, college coaching and health and wellness coaching) is the second fastest growing profession in Canada, second only to information technology. Here in the United States, the profession has also seen considerable growth. Our family therapy program is nationally and internationally known for expertise in solution focused therapy, which is an excellent fit with the brief, goal oriented nature of personal coaching. We offer this certificate to those seeking a career as professional personal coaches.
