A Coach is someone who has fulfilled the requirements of a Practitioner and has demonstrated the necessary sensitivity to coach individuals in the Wonder Method. (For group classes Instructor certification is needed.)
You must have attended a Level II class and an Instructor level I course, or have taken enough Private sessions from a certified Coach or Instructor to be proficient in helping others to understand how to do the work effectively. The number of hours required to do this varies widely but we estimate an additional 6 hours of private sessions. You must also demonstrate the right attitude of a helpful and non-judgmental approach to working with others. As many coaches will be dealing with clients that demonstrate emotional upset, a friendly, open attitude is essential.
There is an annual fee of $300 to be listed on the TWM website as a Coach. A Coach must submit a written record with a minimum of 30 hours of individual sessions with feedback from their clients to the TWM office. You will need to demonstrate your capabilities once every two years in order to maintain your Coach status. There is an additional fee for this. The cost is $60 per evaluation session not to exceed ½ hr. A Coach or Instructor in good standing with TWM performs the evaluation and keeps the fee. The Coach or Instructor who does the evaluation must submit a written update of the certification renewal to TWM within 5 days of having performed the re-certification.
