| PhilosophyCenter is pleased to offer professional training and certification as a life coach through our LIFECOACH Training (LCT) program. LCT provides an intensive curriculum of individual study and supervised practice that imparts the core competencies of philosophical coaching in just 12 weeks. Over the course of the training, the student learns the unique approach, principles, and methods for "deep" life coaching developed by PhilosophyCenter to help clients identify unwitting beliefs and assumptions, clear contradictions, shed false opinions, and make better choices in all areas of experience. The last six weeks of the program are spent in supervised practice during which the student coaches the instructor, then moves on to coaching guest clients scheduled by PhilosophyCenter. Successful completion of LCT leads to designation as a PhilosophyCenter Certified Life Coach (PCLC) with all attendant benefits and ongoing support.
LCT is designed for:
The benefits of certification include:
Enrollment in LCT is by application only.

Note that completion of three PHILO℠ Single counseling sessions is prerequisite to LCT enrollment. Once we receive your statement of intent, we'll get back to you within 24 hours to let you know one way or the other if you've been accepted into the program. The decision to invite candidates to enroll in LCT is made at the discretion of our selection committee.

Those who reapply and are not accepted a second time are not eligible to reapply again.|
