hear what others have to say…
Well, hello there!

I’m guessing that is why you are here. Others have noticed your gifts and amazing listening skills. They’ve benefited from your wisdom and thoughtful approach. But it’s time for you to step up a level and upgrade the way you shine your light in the world.
Our coaching method is one of our greatest strengths. (In fact, it’s what we’re known throughout the world for.) It invites you to combine the best from your passions, potential, purpose and personality and create a business or career you’ll absolutely love. When you train to become a Whole Person Coach, you’re not only able to work with the whole person, you also get to bring your whole self into your work!

If you’ve researched coach training options online, you already know that just about everyone has a coach training school. I’ll be the first to admit: it can get overwhelming and more than a little intimidating. So I created this page to help you decide whether training with us to become an ICF credentialed Whole Person Certified Coach and starting your own business is your next step.
To give you the broadest, most informed viewpoint possible, I tapped into the wisdom of our students, past and present. They once stood where you are right now. My hope is their experience will save you time and money, eliminating the pressure and stress that often accompany uncertainty around big decisions like this.
My mission is your success…
Whole Person Coach Certification (WPCC) is an all-inclusive coach training program leading to ICF Certification and your own coaching business
Different paths lead the way to Coach Training World…
I’d like to introduce you to a handful of our graduates. They have kindly agreed to share their stories and experiences related to their Whole Person Coach Certification training at Coach Training World. You’ll meet Kim, Shirley, Stephen, Ken, Emily, Elysia, Amy, Richard, and Melanie.
Perhaps you are similarly inspired to become a coach as these amazing change makers.
Maybe you’re like Kim whose career didn’t go as planned…
“My career didn’t go in the direction I expected it to and so I thought, ‘What else can I do?’ What else am I interested in?’ For several years the idea of coaching kept popping up into my mind.”
Or Shirley, who turned 60 and wanted more…
“I hit that sixty mark and thought ‘Whoa, wait a minute – I want to restructure my life.’ I’ve always had a desire to be a life coach. I do it naturally in everyday life and work – so I wanted to get some tools and certification behind me.”
Or Stephen, who was already a coach but wanted ICF Certification…
“It was a career progression and a personal goal. I wanted to have the credential and legitimacy that goes with that. Credibility is important to me.”
Then there was Ken, tired of the business he’d been running for years and wanting something more meaningful…
“Friends, family and clients had been telling me for years that I should look into coaching. I’ve owned a business all that time, and I was tired of it. I wanted to help people who are on a journey in life to find their way to awakening and be all they can be. Coaching was the perfect fit for move love of helping others.”
Or Emily, whose passion was ignited after only one executive coaching session…
“I got to have one session with an executive coach when I was at my consulting firm. During the session, she helped me get to the root of my stopping blocks – to what I needed to do differently – and I solved my own problem! I thought, ‘Wow! What just happened? I want to be able to do that. I must become a coach.'”
And Elysia, who wanted to do transformational work with others after a personally traumatic experience of her own…
“My experience made me realize that I wanted to do deeper work with people, but I wasn’t sure where to start. I’d been a hairdresser. I had no idea how to work with clients in a structured setting. Then somebody said to me, “You should become a life coach.”
Or Amy, who left her corporate gig but wasn’t ready to retire…
“I’d just resigned from a large sales job and I had no idea what to do. I wasn’t retiring – I couldn’t afford to. Before I left that job, my boss told me, “You should coach people.” Initially, it was just a hunch. I though maybe I could work with other people in my field – people struggling or just starting out in sales – help them achieve greater level of success. But I had no clue on how to do it.”
Or Richard, who worked in Human Resources and wanted to transform his company’s culture…
“I knew I wanted to work with the real issues – trust and communication being a core part of our challenges. It just made sense to be able to work with the whole person. I also wanted to motivate the employees to succeed and figure things out for themselves.”
Feel like you might be in the right place?
Why our students choose CTW’s Whole Person Coach Certification
Limitless career options, unlike some programs
Some coach training schools teach you just the basics. Others specialize in a particular population or niche. Then there are schools like us: we make it possible for you to help anyone across the globe in any aspect of their life or business leveraging a coaching method and complete system to effect positive and sustainable change with others.
Initially, Emily wanted to coach in a corporate setting, one that required certification. But she was hesitant to lock herself into working only with executives. As someone who specializes in financial empowerment for women, Emily wanted to ensure her coach training investment gave her a wide range of opportunities. Today her soulful money programs make it possible for her ideal clients, regardless of their background and location, to flourish in all aspects of their life.
And Elysia is another one of our global healers. She knew she’d never work for corporations. But she still wanted the training and a professional coaching foundation to help her clients get the most out of their healing sessions. It was “necessary” for her, she says. Whole Person Coaching is what allowed her to create the structure to achieve the six-figure income she enjoys today.
Shirley started out offering one-on-one coaching sessions. From there, she expanded her services into group coaching programs with her partners. She’s now working on a program for seniors and another program for women, helping both groups discover how full retirement can be.
Stephen is well on his way to achieving his ICF Master Certified Coach credential. He is not only working as an executive coach in his own business. He has also partnered with several other coaching firms allowing him to work inside major corporations as an external coach.
Now Ken – he had a game plan when he started. But it quickly changed as he saw what was really possible for him as a coach and global influencer. He realized that his big passion was speaking. Now he’s moving towards becoming a motivational speaker. Ken has chosen to leverage what he learned while becoming a professional coach to evoke transformations from the stage.
Melanie jumped right into her coaching practice after graduation. Launching her business with a special offer, she immediately booked five clients. As a lifelong learner, she continues to use coaching to catapult her already rich toolkit of Reiki, essential oils, and other healing and communication modalities to serve a wide client base across the country.
Amy stayed in the business world. She’s a sales director who has found her coaching skills to be invaluable. The head of her company’s human resources department said to her, “Since you’ve been around we haven’t heard from anyone on your team!” There had been a lot of upheaval before Amy. But with her coaching skills, people have become more satisfied at work. She attributes this to her coaching skills and efforts aimed at helping employees achieve a work-life balance.
Richard like Amy, remains working in the corporate world as a Human Resources director. But things have changed. Not only has Richard been coaching others, he has created a coaching program for the employees. This has given him much joy and satisfaction in his work, and his company is certainly benefiting as well.
Here you’re an individual, not a number
When you make an investment like this, you want to learn from someone who sincerely cares about you. And that’s who we are: we care about you and your future. We are invested in your long-term success. We want to help you get to where you really want to go…
“Feroshia and her team are very personable and sensitive. She’s drawn a lot out of me and I like that. I need that challenge, you know? And she drew things out that just made me think, like, “Wow, that’s what I want to do!” ~ Ken
“Feroshia connects with people, you feel like you’re the only one she’s working with – I know I’m not the only one but she has a way of tuning into each one of us. It could be a room of ten people and she’d get a feel for you immediately & know how to work with you through the process.” ~ Shirley
“Feroshia and her team really care about the people she’s working with. And her intuition & understanding of people – and her enthusiasm about what she sees in you – are as important as what she’s teaching.” ~ Elysia
“There aren’t hundreds of people getting trained every few months in this program like so many of the other ones. Feroshia and her team know you and track you. She does the mentoring calls which means you get an MCC at the helm. She’s aware of where you’ve been and where you’re headed.” ~Stephen
“Feroshia and her team really understand how to work with individuals and the corporate arena. Her background in organizational development and leadership really shines through.” ~ Richard
We train you to work with the whole person
Our proven method empowers you to work with the whole person – mind, body, heart and spirit. The real benefit here is freedom: you aren’t limited in how or who you coach. As one of the most advanced coach training schools in the world, we train you in our own unique holistic transformational learning method. It’s rooted in interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, and somatics, as well as narrative and archetypal psychology. Combined with the best practices of the ICF core competencies, our approach gives you a unique blend of tools and techniques that allow you to work with the whole person.
“Everyone says, ‘We coach for the whole person’, but Coach Training World’s program brings that in a way the other programs don’t.” ~ Kim
“It’s important to address every aspect of a person and every aspect of their life. You can’t just focus on coaching one aspect of a person and expect to create sustainable change in others.” ~ Shirley
“The concept of working with the whole person spoke to me. There’s a big focus in executive coaching on brain training and neuroscience and that’s part of what the program includes. But I’m also very spiritual and I want to understand everything about what makes a person who they are. So how could I coach any other way besides the whole person? It’s the only thing that made sense to me.” ~ Emily
“Feroshia talks a lot about authenticity. And that’s big – authentic alignment – who you are on the inside equals who you are being on the outside. So what if, in your business life, you could actually function effectively and actually produce results from a place of wholeness?” ~ Amy
“I was drawn to Coach Training World’s Whole Person Coaching program because of the breadth and depth of how much it offered. Feroshia is also a successful businesswoman. She’s dynamic, really intuitive, and such a masterful coach! I was blown away watching her in action. That kind of mastery is really important to me. And she exhibits that incredibly.” ~Melanie
“Feroshia’s background in leadership and organization development was attractive to me. She understood my constraints working within a larger system and yet was able to help me to create effective interventions through coaching by seeing the best in others.” ~ Richard
We encourage you to go deep within yourself as you prepare to help others
The person you are today is the person who creates your future. As a Whole Person Coach, you become a highly effective communicator and relationship builder. You’ll also be able to identify your own stopping blocks and blind spots. Plus, as we coach to help others, our coach training has a transformative effect on us too. You get to step into the best version of yourself – a version you create and define.
“Coaching requires you to bring your whole self to the table & Coach Training World’s Whole Person Coach training guarantees that you’ll touch on who you are as a whole. It’s worth the investment just for what I learned about myself, about who I am and how I want to show up in the world. It was very freeing.” ~Emily
“I expected to just learn some things and move on. But the coach training created a personal transformation and I started dealing with a lot of things in my own life. I knew if I did my own work, I could help other people even more.” ~ Ken
“Personal development was a big outcome – it created a personal transformation that I really didn’t expect.” ~ Shirley
“I had no idea how much I was going to learn about myself. The community and courageous space allowed me to really look within and step into my best.” ~ Stephen
“Who I became as a result of the program was far more then a highly effective changemaker…” ~ RIchard
Bring your whole self to the world
You’ll quickly discover that it’s both personal and personalized here at Coach Training World. Whether you realize it or not, you step into coaching as a whole person on day one. You possess your own experience, knowledge and skills. Everything you bring to the table is rich and rewarding. This forms the unique brilliance you share with the world and that the world is actively seeking you out for.
Whole Person Coaching is as much about you helping your clients rediscover and step into their wholeness, as it is about you realizing your best possible life. Regardless of your age, education, life experiences, or work background, you possess something of deep and intrinsic value to others. Let us help you identify it and give you the framework that’ll enable you to use this knowledge in service to your chosen tribe!
We’re the perfect blend of spiritual, practical & business
Our program is rooted in neuroscience, psychology and proven marketing strategies specific to the promotion of coaching services. Many schools offer you plenty of philosophy. We provide that too. But we also give you the tools and training that address the full spectrum of launching a successful coaching practice. Remember: sitting across from a coaching client is the end result of a lot of background work. It’s often the last step, not the first. So we ensure you have a solid foundation in the art, science and business of coaching.
“Feroshia’s program seemed the most well-rounded and it resonated with me. – It was official – I liked that it was ICF accredited, but it also had a spiritual component to it.” ~ Elysia
“Feroshia’s so legit. There’s no fluff – there’s rigor behind it, an actual protocol we follow. It doesn’t look super intense to a client, but I’m doing something really specific when I’m working with them. We’re so well prepared. The program is rigorous in that we are 100% when we go into the ICF exam, which isn’t a cakewalk either. But she makes sure we’re ready. I don’t think she’s had anyone fail the test.” ~ Emily
“Feroshia’s involvement with the International Coaching Federation and Organization Development Network – was important because I wanted to make sure that I’m aligned with a certain level of professionalism. Some people consider me ‘woo woo’ at first. But my certification and training provide a rich foundation for the work I do with my clients. I had all these different influences – NLP, Martha Beck, somatics, Reiki – and when I looked at other programs they were a little narrow for me. Feroshia had trained in many different things, so her program came from a more holistic view than I was experiencing in other programs.” ~ Melanie
“Feroshia is a masterful coach. But even more important to me, she is a masterful teacher who can speak from direct experience.” ~ Richard
“The business coursework and mentoring alone was worth the investment.” ~ Stephen
Complete your coach training program 100% online or in-person
Some people, like Ken, want the in-person option – a program that isn’t offered only online. That’s because Ken, like so many who train here, wanted to meet new people and make lifelong friends. Others, like Emily, need a program that can be completed remotely and mostly on the weekends.
We know that traveling to in-person sessions can be prohibitive, whether it’s family and work obligations or financing the travel. That’s why you always have the option to attend our live trainings 100% online or join us for our three-day intensives and summer programs in person.
Busy schedule? We record all our courses. So if you miss a portion of the class, or simply want to review, we’ve got you covered.
PLUS… In addition to your coach training, business courses, and mentoring, you’ll have lifetime access to our ever-expanding student resource center. Inside you’ll find hundreds of hours of videos, audio recordings and additional reading materials.
You’ll learn experientially, whether you join us virtually or in-person
At Coach Training World, we use a “Whole Person Learning” method. It ensures deep engagement and applied learning regardless of how you choose to attend. For example, you’ll receive rich live demonstrations supported with step-by-step processes. You also have ample opportunity to work one-on-one with the other members of your cohort. These valuable interactions happen within our private online breakout sessions. They also take place in the “real” world, outside of the classroom, where you’ll partner with coaches from our global community.
Plus, upon enrollment, you can immediately begin working with a senior coach one-on-one. They’ll help get you up to speed as a coach while you make important changes in your life and prepare to help others do the same. The importance of reliable mentor support cannot be overstated. That’s why we make it available throughout your training and inside our ICF and Business Mentoring Programs, included in the MASTERY LEVEL 3 package.
BONUS: Business start-up and marketing classes are included
Our coach training program includes a bonus — Our most popular 10-module digital business course, INFUSE: Live Your Brilliance. It walks you step-by-step through everything from deciding on your signature solution to finding clients and developing a marketing plan. We don’t just send you out the door with a handshake and a “good luck.” We’re at your side through the entire process as you start your business and market yourself easily and authentically.
“I wanted to start my own business in coaching. And that’s something else that I really liked about the CTW program: not all programs offer this depth of support for starting and running a business.” ~Kim
“Trying to choose between the many coach training options available, I wanted a coach training method that would work for my way of helping others. But I also wanted support for starting my business.” ~ Stephen
