                                            About the Institute
The Institute for Life Coach Training, (formerly Therapist University), is the first-of-its-kind training
institute that specializes in training psychotherapists, psychologists, counselors and helping
professionals in building a successful coaching practice. Prompted by the ever-increasing number of
therapists wanting to offer coaching services to their clients, Dr. Patrick Williams, psychologist and
Master Certified Coach (MCC), founded the Institute in late 1998 after completing his own
advanced training at Coach University and other notables in the field.

As a successful psychologist-turned-coach, Dr. Williams recognized that therapists and helping
professionals are the most well-positioned professionals to transition to the world of coaching.
Because therapists and helping professionals already have the requisite skills for effective
coaching, he developed a training program that emphasizes the important distinctions between
therapy and coaching -- and builds upon therapists’ existing skills so that they can quickly translate
those skills to coaching in as little as 40 hours of tele-classes.

Since its inception, the Institute has graduated hundreds of students across the US, Canada, Asia,
Australia, and Europe. The program has expanded to include Advanced Coach Training, and offers
a Certified Life Coach designation. The curriculum for the Foundational Coach Training is continually
re-evaluated to ensure that state-of-the-art training is provided. It is approved by the International
Coaching Federation (ICF) to be an Accredited Coach Training Program.

For the exclusive benefit of our students and graduates, the Institute has established an online
Student Center, full of valuable resources that are crucial for coaching success. Graduates of our
programs also have the option of participating in once-a-month "Chats with Pat".

The Foundational Coach Training is designed to facilitate/assist those therapists desiring to
transition from a therapy practice to coaching in the shortest amount of time -- or who want to add
coaching to their therapy practice.

The Foundational Coach Training for Christian Counselors is designed to facilitate/assist people with
a people-helping background to transition from a professional, pastoral or lay counseling practice
to coaching in the shortest amount of time.

Advanced Coach Training Courses are available to anyone who has completed 30 hours of basic
coach training.

                  Total Life Coaching: 50+Life Lessons, Skills, and Techniques to
                  Enhance Your Practice.....and Your Life by Dr. Patrick Williams MCC, Dr.
                  Lloyd J. Thomas

               Life coaching is more than a collection of techniques and skills. It is more
               than something you do. Life coaching reflects who you are-it is your
               authentic being in action. Readers of Pat Williams's and Deborah Davis's
               book, Therapist as Life Coach, know Pat to be a gifted life coach and
               passionate teacher. Here Pat and psychologist/colleague and writer of more
than 1600 newspaper columns, Lloyd J. Thomas, build on this earlier book and share a
unique insight into the coaching process, which shows you precisely how to enhance your
professional practices through practical and effective life coaching. It also empowers you to
change your own lives through use of the practical information and philosophy presented
here.

Total Life Coaching is organized into a series of 52 life lessons, and is designed to be either
read cover-to-cover or dipped into, as needed, for assistance when conducting a coaching
session. Keeping life's processes on the "message and lesson" level makes living and life
coaching much easier and more enjoyable. Total Life Coaching guides you step-by-step
through the complex process of learning and coaching these fifty important lessons. The
lessons are organized into 8 sections: Creating a Personal Identity; Coaching Spirituality
and Life Purpose; Coaching Communication Skills; Living Life with Integrity; Success:
Clients Achieving their Potential; Coaching Cognitive Skills; Creating High-Quality
Relationships; Understanding Your Past to Create a Desired Future.

Total Life Coaching by Pat and Lloyd is more than just a book. It is an interactive experience
in which you will find recipes for living your life more authentically, as well as master time-
honored lessons that you can bring to your coaching clients [or can incorporate in your own
life]. Regardless of the personal coaching techniques or skills you may have learned, you
may still not be the most effective coach you can become. This book will help you move
closer to that goal.

                                            Testimonials
"You have mastered the art of delivering several key message points in a way that is easily received by
the audience and helps builds consensus not divisiveness. Again thank you for your stellar leadership of
the profession and setting such a fine example of how to educate the masses so that all are served. It is
inspiring leaders like you that are going to truly impact the future of our beloved profession and
strengthen the ICF." Robert Stack, Denver, CO


"Just wanted to say thank-you for making such an impact in such a short space in time! Meeting you and
learning from you was truly an amazing and enriching experience! Yes - I will become what I dream of
for nothing is impossible if you truly can believe! We had an amazing time visiting your country and
learning from you! Hope you are doing well. Wish to learn more from you and we definitely plan to be
back at the conference next year! Who knows what the future holds? I am truly excited and inspired and
look forward to meeting with you again!" Jannie Putterm, Wellness Africa Pty Ltd, South Africa


"Pat Williams is a delight! An excellent and entertaining teacher, he develops an easy and quick rapport
with his audience. The week long summer session I took with him was extremely helpful in my practice,
and his continuing availability and support is an added (and unexpected) bonus. Don't miss a chance to
learn from this gifted, thoroughly committed teacher. He is the best I have ever experienced." Jane
McCauley, MA


"Dr. Patrick Williams was absolutely tremendous! He has a nature gift for clear, consise communication
and fully engaging his audience. The bottom line: he's authentic and inspiring." John S. Allen, Ph.D.,
Health Psychologist and Wellness Consultant, East Sandwich, MA


"Dr. Williams' seminar was as enlightening and inspirational as he was down-to-earth and HUMAN. He
made me feel as though I could do ANYTHING. I suppose that is the essence of being a therapist and
coach. I am grateful to have been a part of that 'Therapist as Life Coach' training in Cape Cod. Thanks!"
Patricia G. Pishioneri, RN, MS, CHt, Virginia Beach, VA


"I am a senior psychologist with an extensive background in forensic and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
After reading Patrick's book on Coaching for Psychologist's I was so impressed that I telephoned him to
tell him how excited I was about the information he conveyed. He suggested that I attend the summer
workshop in Eastham, Ma. From the first day to the fifth day, Dr. Williams was superb in his
presentation, organization and content of materials. Everything he demonstrated was practical and useful
for any of us attending who needed to begin this 'new approach'. Attendees who had been coaching for a
few years told me they too found the workshop extremely helpful and original. I cannot feel more
positive. I hated to see the workshop end. As I continue my work, my marketing, I frequently think of
him and his sage advice." Dr. Lorraine Wincor, Psy.D.
