9.1 When you graduate from the Beautiful You Life Coaching Course you can call yourself a Beautiful You Life Coach. If you do not wish to do anything further than that with your life coach training you do not have to.
To become a Certified Beautiful You Life Coach you need to:
- undertake an additional six session coaching series with a Certified Beautiful You Coach of your choice
- document a coaching call or undertake live coaching with a buddy partner on a call
- potentially have a review phone call with a Certified Beautiful You Life Coach and
- other requirements as noted at the certification page on our website
If you wish to pursue certification with us please visit our certification page for full and further information:
https://www.beautifulyoucoachingacademy.com/life-coach-certification/ noting that this is an internal certification pathway and not one with the ICF. While you are studying an ICF certified course with us, this does not open up a pathway to call yourself or undertake an individual pathway with the ICF. It is your responsibility to be aware of these requirements and undertake them if you wish to be certified with us. We do not make the assumption that any trainee or graduate wishes to be certified and therefore will not question your level of involvement or undertaking of certification requirements at any time.
Once certified you will receive:
- a Certified Beautiful You Life Coaching Coach Seal for your website and marketing material,
- a professional profile on the Beautiful You Coaching Academy website and
- life time access to the Certified Beautiful You Life Coaching Alumni Online Facebook Group
9.2 You can undertake a certification coaching series with a Beautiful You Life Coach at any time, including before, during or after your life coaching course and you can contact the coach of your choice directly from their profile or by contacting email@example.com outlining your preferred expertise for working with a coach. Payment for the six certification coaching series is an agreement between you and Coach and the Beautiful You Coaching Academy plays no role in your relationship other than to receive confirmation that you have attended the six sessions.
Your coaching series is not tested or reviewed in any way and can be about anything you like. It’s your personal growth time and is confidential with your coach, and you may choose to work with them on something related to your life, health, finances or related to the growth of your new life coaching business.
9.3 Please note however that if the Certified Coach reports to the Beautiful You Coaching Academy that you did not complete your coaching series in a timely manner, cancelled or did not attend appointments, or generally did not participate in the series as a willing client, we reserve the right to discuss that with you further and potentially revoke your right to become a Certified Beautiful You Life Coach and/or request you undertake a series with another coach at your expense.
9.4 Once you have completed your training and coaching series and have your documentation ready to submit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your phone interview. There is no charge for this service.
9.5 All decisions about whether or not you are granted certification status are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
Once you have been granted certification and upon submission of your professional quality photograph and biographical details, your profile will be created, allowing you to receive direct coaching client referrals from the Beautiful You Coaching Academy website.
