Profile: How Do I Become A Life Coach?
Updated: Aug 20, 2018
We asked Author & Life Coach Kimberly Dixon what are the requirements to become a life coach. Read her response and see if you have what it takes to help make people better.
You can become a certified coach by attending classes and getting a certificate but the industry doesn't currently require certification so any one can technically call themselves a life coach without any formal training.
“ The best coaches are people who have experienced great struggle in their life and learned from their experiences and have a passion to help others .”
However, the best coaches are people who have experienced great struggle in their life and learned from their experiences and have a passion to help others get through the trials and hardships of life. I have 35 years of arthritis pain and growing up in as a neglected child and a certificate.
Short bio: Kimberly Dixon is a nationally known speaker, author and life coach (Joyful Living with Kimberly Dixon, LLC.) After a difficult childhood and 11 orthopedic surgeries, I experienced an emotional and spiritual crisis in addition to a physical one. Through decades of pain with God's grace, I found my way back. My experiences taught me how to persevere through the most heartbreaking and trying circumstances. My memoir Can These Bones Live Again tells the world about my journey. I now speak and teach others through life coaching how to reclaim their joy.
