“Somatics is a powerful domain of learning that invites you and your clients to trust the inherent wisdom of your wholeness. It invites one to see and be from a new perspective."

Martina Payette, PCC, NCC Coach, BEing U Coaching, Canada.

As ontological coaches, we know the importance of including the body in our coaching. And yet, we may lack the confidence and experience to integrate somatics into our conversations.

That is why Newfield’s
Applied Somatic Coaching Certification Course is designed to cultivate confidence. Through thoughtfully curated experiences, we will explore, practice and embody the somatic coaching competencies. This honing of the fundamentals will give you the skills and wisdom to freely respond to and engage with your clients, to spark sustained transformation.

The somatic coaching competencies (scc) are the fundamental capacities needed to engage in somatic coaching effectively and powerfully.
They are in alignment with ICF core competencies and simplify what matters in the somatic coaching exchange. As you practice the sccs, you will amplify your skillfulness and artfulness as a coach.

If you are an alumni of Newfield Network's coach training program, and a coach who wants to become more effective in facilitating deep transformation, if you want to see your coaching conversations go deeper, if you want to experience greater fluidity, clarity, and ease in the embodied exploration process in your coaching sessions, this course is for you.

Course Curriculum:

Month 1: Setting The Somatic Foundation: Somatic Orientation, Presence, Awareness and Observation

In this initial month, our focus is on the power of perspective and observation, beginning with an examination of our own orientation and understanding of the body. We will then delve into the 'Coach's Somatic Orientation,' a crucial framing that enhances the transformative potential of our clients. Skipping this step may result in missed opportunities in the somatic coaching process outcomes. Following that, we will explore a presence model and undergo awareness training. Once our framing and presence are established, we will hone our somatic observational capacities. This month serves as the foundation for the entire course, providing you with the strength to evolve into a more artful and skillful somatic coach.

Month 2 - The Somatic Principles & Somatic Safety

During the second month, we will introduce somatic principles and explore how they act as guides shaping the somatic coaching process. Coaching based on these principles enhances ease and trust in the unfolding of somatic coaching conversations. Additionally, we will learn straightforward and effective somatic safety practices to further build trust with our clients.

Month 3 - The Transformational Arc & Somatic Inquiry

In this month, our emphasis will be on the Transformational Arc, delving into a detailed understanding of the various phases of deep transformation. This understanding plays a crucial role in the development of our somatic inquiry process. Knowing precisely which phase of transformation your client is in enables you to tailor your somatic inquiry to meet them exactly where they are in real time.

Month 4 - Somatic Pattern Recognition & Somatic Transformational Tools

In the fourth month, you'll acquire knowledge of somatic patterns, enhancing your ability to observe the body from fresh perspectives. This expanded observational capacity widens our range of coaching questions, fostering new insights. The somatic transformational tools assist us in supporting the client’s insights into embodied transformation.

Month 5 - Review, Deepen, Integrate

In month five, we will dedicate time to reviewing, deepening, and integrating our comprehension and application of the somatic curriculum. The focus will be on supporting clients in sustained transformation by collaboratively designing practices. We will then create a personalized practice plan to ensure continuous learning and application beyond the course. The month concludes with an overview, summary, and a celebration of the learning journey.
