Do You Support Clients in Transition?

Do your coaching/counseling clients feel lost and confused about their future direction?

Are they in transition--ending an important phase of their life or stepping into a completely new era? If so, it's likely their friends and loved ones are giving them advice or pressuring them to take actions that are counter to your clients' inner truths.

In your role as a coach / counselor, your clients reach out to you to support them as they sort out their situation, make sense of their circumstances, decide what actions to take, and find a way to continue moving through this difficult time as effectively as possible.

  • On a good day, you are clear, your questions are helpful, and you feel good about the outcomes your clients are experiencing.
  • At other times, you feel in over your head, not sure where to go with your clients nor how to support them in their journey. 
  • If you are an experienced coach or counselor, you may have the basics, but you are looking for ways to deepen or enhance your work with clients.

Training Opportunities

Deep Nature Insights (formerly Transition Dynamics Enterprises, Inc.) now offers several complete training programs and two short courses to give coaches/counselors helpful insights and tools to assist their clients through life's transitions. All Credits will be awarded by Institute for Life Coach Training (see full description below):

The Seasons of Change is a rich, multi-faceted nature-based metaphor created by Carol McClelland Fields, PhD, that provides guidance, direction, hope, and support to those in transition. This model is useful whether your clients have entered their transition by choice or by force, whether the transition was anticipated or came as a complete surprise.

By weaving this model into your work, you give your clients hope--helping them envision where they've been, where they are, and where they are going. A process that is full of unknowns becomes a bit more understandable. Supporting your clients right where they are is a profound experience that deepens their trust in themselves, in you, and in the transition journey. It's likely no one else is honoring them for what they feel deep within.

Seasons of Change - Coaching Practicum                                                   10 Credits*

The Purpose Clarity Program is a four-part coaching program, created by Carol McClelland Fields, PhD, that gives you a step-by-step framework to help clients convert their passions and interests into a clear purpose and direction.

The Purpose Clarity Program is a versatile program that helps you work with a wide variety of people who are searching for their purpose in life, whether they are looking for a new career direction, reevaluating their priorities, or craving more meaning in their life.

*Credits: Partnering with Institute For Life Coach Training

Great news! In recent conversations with Institute for Life Coach Training (ILCT), we made an important discovery. As of Spring, 2017, ILCT will be awarding credits for all of the classes we offer in conjunction with them. Whether you are looking for credits to finish a credential or gather continuing education units to renew your credential, you'll be awarded credits that are valid with ICF, CCE, or NAADAC. From now on, we'll provide a course link in our announcements and web pages so ILCT students can register for our classes directly on the ILCT site.

Not an ILCT student? Not to worry. Through our relationship with ILCT, we can now facilitate you in receiving credits for our classes as well. You'll register for classes on our site, and then we'll walk you through a few easy steps to secure the credits for the course you take. 

We are excited to continue and deepen our partnering with ILCT. Thinking back, I realized we've been referring students to each other since I started teaching training courses in the early 2000's

If you have questions about any of our training programs, credits and how our programs might enhance your practice and client work, please contact us. We are happy to answer your questions and talk with you to confirm the training will meet your needs and goals.

How might your coaching / counseling practice be more successful if...  

  • You had access to a rich metaphor that not only helped you identify what phase of transition your clients are in, but also what tasks they need to focus on to move forward and what actions are likely to result in disappointing, time consuming detours.

  • Your clients breathe a sigh of relief as they feel heard and honored for being right where they are.

  • You received more referrals because your clients feel so supported by your work.

  • You had a step-by-step program to support clients in discovering new insights about their purpose and how to know what they are drawn to explore.
