Personal Growth and Wellbeing: A Certificate in Personal Growth for Coaches

Personal Growth and Wellbeing: A Certificate in Personal Growth for Coaches

Coaches can only support their clients effectively and sustainably if they can listen deeply to their own needs. Self-care is the basis of the capacity to evoke awareness in others. But how can this be realised?

In this virtual programme consisting of six half-day sessions with Bart Weetjens, you will explore what grounds and balances you well and how you can bring this awareness to your coaching practice.

How you learn

In a small group of participants, you will engage on an experiential learning journey where you will gain new insights into mental health and wellbeing in an interactive way. You will discover powerful tools to support personal growth, both for yourself and your clients.

You will be supported in your self-management by devising your own strategy to become a more fulfilled and resilient version of yourself. You will learn to listen deeply to your personal needs, set healthy boundaries around them, and communicate effectively about it.

The programme comprises six half-day sessions spread over six weeks. You will need to plan one extra hour per week for homework between the sessions. This programme will also require you to engage hands-on in your own wellbeing experiment and be ready to share your findings with your cohort.

    I am a Zen Buddhist monk and social entrepreneur. Graduated in Product Design from Antwerp University, and with a vision to empower the most vulnerable communities of subsistence farmers in sub-Sahara Africa, I took the initiative to train rats as sustainable detectors in response to the global landmine problem. What started in 1995 as a modest research initiative in detection rats technology, gradually grew into a global humanitarian operation. Twenty years after my initiative my organisation had become one of the leading social enterprises in the world, recognised and awarded by networks like Ashoka, the Skoll Awards and the World Economic Forum. When Mozambique officially announced itself free from landmines in 2015, I transitioned from my executive role to focus on the practice of Zen. In the same year I got involved in The Wellbeing Project which aims to catalyze a culture of inner wellbeing for all changemakers. While exploring the relationship between personal growth and social action, I recently undertook a new initiative to develop a holistic permaculture/wellbeing center in the French Ardennes: La Grande Terre, where I facilitate many of my Zen workshops and individual coaching trajectories.
