 10. What Can I Expect From The Classes?

Class Format

Training to be a coach is exciting, challenging, fun and fulfilling. During your time as a student at Mindstream you will work hand in hand with the facilitators to develop your skills. Each module will be thoroughly explained and we encourage all our students to ask questions and explore the boundaries of coaching. The classes consist of formal lectures combined with small discussion groups, practical exercises and role-play. The emphasis is on learning by doing, and for each module you attend, you will be asked to practice the techniques involved.

Is there much work to be done outside of the class?

Each week students will be expected to coach one other student and also to receive coaching from another – usually done on the phone. In addition there will be some reading and projects to undertake along with research and written assignments.

How is the Assessment for the Diploma carried out?

Each student will be assessed on an on-going basis. The majority of the assessment is based on observations of your practical work in the classroom. In addition there will be a written assignment to evaluate your knowledge of the subject and there will also be one or more formal observation to test your practical coaching skills. You may also be asked to provide a taped coaching session for additional assesment. Also In order to achieve your Diploma you will also need to meet our minimum attendance requirements.

Why Only the Best Coaches Achieve a Mindstream Diploma

As an independently accredited training facility, Mindstream formally assesses all students before they receive their coaching qualification. In order to maintain standards and to ensure that your Diploma qualification continues to be highly respected, there may be times when we feel that we cannot award the Diploma to a particular student. If you do not pass the Diploma, you will be be invited back for further training at no extra cost until such time as we believe you have achieved the standard necessary to receive your Diploma.

  • I had a life-changing experience.

    I found myself falling into a position that required life coaching for my clients so I took the decision to do Seann's Certificate course as an add-on skill.
    I had a life-changing experience and a development and broadening of my skills. It was an amazing, eye-opening 2 x day journey, with amazing people. A great gift to give to oneself.

  • This course has been a real-eye-opener for my life/career direction.

    Sean’s calm and open-style of mentoring really engaged us all in the process of up-skilling ourselves and I would encourage anyone who is thinking of life coaching as a career to sign-up for the course

    – Cilian Murphy, Primary School Teacher.

  • I absolutely loved the two-day course with Seann

    It has strengthened even further my passion for life coaching. Seann is a wonderful teacher, easy-going, calm nature that is a joy to be in the company of. It is a fantastic course for anyone willing to grow, self-develop & evolve emotionally and spiritually. I am super-excited to continue onto the diploma course
