Transpersonal Coaching Psychology

Explore the basis and value of a transpersonal approach to coaching.


Transpersonal Coaching Psychology (TCP) can be described as the theory and practice of coaching that takes a holistic and integrative approach to support client growth and transformation. In this course we explore the basis and value of a transpersonal approach to coaching


Together we investigate what criteria promote transformation in coaching, with a focus on what transpersonal perspectives may contribute. This includes identifying transpersonal states that may be leveraged for positive change, as well as detecting and dealing with psychospiritual crises in the context of coaching.

The option places particular emphasis on applied open awareness (OA) as a means to hold a safe and potentially transformative space in the coaching relationship. The OA skillset is at the core of the Transpersonal Coaching Model that is introduced at this option, with somatic-centred OA practices to support post-session integration.

Students will also have the opportunity to investigate how expanded states of consciousness or peak experiences can be utilised in order for those ‘higher’ states to become meaningful and practical in the context of daily life.
