Integrative Coach Training

Training Course Overview

Absolute Specialists’ Integrative Coaching© is a unique and elegant approach. It frees your client’s mind so they can see with increasing clarity where they need to go and how to get there. It also provides them with tools that they can take away and use for themselves after the sessions so they can continue to make good choices along their journey. AS Integrative Coaches© practice the Focussed Mindfulness Method which is direct, powerful and deep. They have experienced first-hand the power of the practice for uncovering and dealing with the root cause of their own fears, confusion and self-imposed limitations and they are committed to continuing to clear their issues as they surface. They are compassionate, insightful and work with integrity, they deeply listen to their clients before teaching them Focussed Mindfulness tools that help to calm them, clear their minds and empower them to work towards their goals with a flexible but focussed action plan.

If you wish to train as an integrative coach you can do this concurrently with a Focussed Mindfulness course or afterwards depending on the availability of courses and the time you have to commit. The workshops are around a specific theme, you will be encouraged to consider the challenges and approach needed for different client groups and you will learn additional skills to develop your practice in these areas.

More Information:

Clare and other Absolute specialists will be available to respond promptly to your reflections and offer support throughout the year.

As the year unfolds you will receive sections of a manual so by the end of the year you have a written reference for all the processes and guidelines.

Once you have completed the Integrative coach course you may be invited to work towards accreditation as an ASIC. This will involve reflecting on your confidence in using the techniques with clients in an appropriate and creative way, examples of how you have applied the techniques in practice and a critical appraisal of the results achieved and how you might have improved on the process. The reflection will also consider your own spiritual journey thus far and your CPD needs and plans for the following year.


Absolute Specialists accredited practitioners must hold appropriate public liability insurance and agree to abide by the Absolute Specialists code of ethics and conduct.


The Director of Absolute Specialists reserves the right to withhold accreditation until you have undertaken further personal development work to address any areas where this is deemed necessary. You have the right to appeal.


Once granted accreditation you will be offered an annual review with an Absolute Supervisor where you can reflect on your CPD in the previous year and on your needs for the following year.


Where all these conditions are met and your subscription has been paid you can appear on the Absolute-Specialists directory.
