ddemonstrExploring the Program

Animas was established in 2008 and has quickly become one of the UK’s leading coach training schools with in person training facilities in London and Edinburgh (as well as now offering virtual certification programs to coaches all over the world).

The Animas Life Coaching Approach:

Animas teaches a methodology called “Transformational Coaching” which focuses on a humanistic approach to inquiry and change, as opposed to a primarily performance-focused approach.

Animas further explains “Transformational Coaching” as having four key, interconnected elements, which are: holistic (paying attention to all dimensions of a client from somatic to emotional to interpersonal components), psychological (understanding the clients’ inner world), humanistic (believing that all people are whole and unbroken), and integrative (using a range of coaching styles and believing that each coach is best when bringing their unique style to this work).

These general principles underpin a large number of life coaching schools, with a key note here being the focus on whole-person rather than performance-based coaching.
