Hakomi Somatic Coaching (HSC) Certificate Program is a professional program that integrates core Hakomi methodology into a coaching framework. This online training will focus on developing mindful and somatic awareness practices to deepen the client’s personal process. You will enhance both your presence and your skillset as a transformational coach. 

Coaches will expand their relational skills through Hakomi methods that gently but powerfully invite emotional self-discovery. Supported by the coach, clients will engage in a cycle of transformation towards clarity, action, and deeper satisfaction in their work and in their lives. 

This training is suited for established coaches as well as new coaches wanting to train in somatics and mindfulness. 

Will ICF CCEs be offered? 
HSC is a 40-hour certificate program. Our goal is to offer CCEs that qualify for ICF membership renewal and the portfolio path to certification. However, we are still in the very beginning stages of the application process, and we cannot guarantee CCEs until that process is complete. We will be posting updates as we have them. 

Key HSCT Learning:

  • Apply core Hakomi methodology to your coaching practice. 

  • Discover how to deepen your somatic self-awareness to stay grounded and settled in your coaching seat. 

  • Practice embodiment as a model for self-healing. 

  • Become trauma-informed to support your client’s nervous system regulation. 

  • Apply wisdom and a compassionate mindset to guide your client through times of challenge and adversity.

  • Join a lively community of somatic coaches who will support your personal growth and expand your network.

About the Hakomi Method
For over 40 years, Hakomi has pioneered the psychodynamic use of mindfulness in the therapeutic process. This is the very first time that Hakomi principles and practices will be offered specifically to the coaching community.

How is Coaching different from Psychotherapy?
Both coaching and psychotherapy support clients in navigating the normal, and sometimes painful, ups and downs of the human condition. Both professions can help people gain more clarity, take action and feel more satisfied in their work and lives. 

Psychotherapists have an additional role and responsibility as mental health clinicians. Psychotherapists are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of clinical mental health conditions that are outside the scope of coaching. Therefore, an ethical coach must understand the parameters of who is and who is not a good candidate for their practice and have a network of people with whom they can consult and make referrals.
