The Transpersonal Coaching Model

.
Transpersonal coaching works
because it works with the whole person
body, mind & spirit

 

This unique approach to coaching identifies the unconscious triggers and patterns that give rise to one’s current thoughts, feelings, behaviors and their resulting circumstances. It helps people to establish resourceful states and perspectives and then anchor these into the contexts where they experience challenges.

The Transpersonal Coaching Model is approved by IACTMThe Transpersonal Coaching Model (TCM) incorporates seven interconnected levels on which we experience ourselves and our lives, namely:

  1. Body (physical health & performance)
  2. Mind (mental health & performance)
  3. Emotion (motivations & reactions)
  4. Shadow (unconscious aspects of the personality)
  5. Connection (relationships & inter-relatedness of phenomena)
  6. Soul (subtle essence of individuals & groups)
  7. Spirit (causal & non-dual realms)

 

The TCM integrates ten key aspects that influence our current perceptions, motivations, abilities and outcomes, namely:

  1. State (current mental, emotional & general condition)
  2. Trigger (stimulus that evokes one’s state & behaviour)
  3. Behaviour (actions resulting from the trigger & identity)
  4. Identity (part of oneself that is most identified within a specific context)
  5. Beliefs (related to identity & values)
  6. Values (highly valued criteria related to beliefs & mission)
  7. Mission (outcomes generated by values & vision)
  8. Vision (overall impact of mission & purpose)
  9. Purpose (manifesting energy of the vision)
  10. Source (origin or essence of purpose)

 

Coaches who are familiar with the TCM are able to utilize this model as a conceptual framework in which the causes and other Approved by the Transpersonal Coaching and Therapy Network (TCTN)determinants of clients’ issues can be to pinpointed. Following that, the TCM can serve as a compass to help clients navigate their way to liberating outcomes. Circumstances in life might be difficult to change, but transforming the meaning and effect of those circumstances is achievable with the TCM. Furthermore, the TCM’s holistic approach promotes integration, which in turn gets all parts of you on board, playing for the same team, driven by a clear vision and in alignment with a meaningful purpose.

 

There are various starting and ending points when using the TCM, and a variety of ways in which the model can be applied – depending on the nature and context of the issue to be addressed. Below are examples of common issues, with guidelines to use the TCM constructively. These guidelines are examples of one general approach for different categories of issues. They don’t include all the other skills that are necessary to facilitate thorough and effective coaching sessions. At our TCM course participants learn all varieties of approaches, including how to facilitate sessions from start to end, incorporating all the essential transpersonal coaching skills.

 

Distress, depression, anxiety, fear, performance or motivation issues, PTSD, negative emotional reactions, anger, shame, loneliness, sadness, etc:

  1. Guide client into open awareness.
  2. Elicit client’s issue state, including how they are being affected on all seven levels.
  3. Elicit the most common trigger of the client’s condition.
  4. Elicit the problem behaviour that gets triggered.
  5. Elicit which part of themselves they are most identified with in the context where the issue prevails.
  6. Elicit what the client believes about themselves and their capabilities when they are in the identity role from above.
  7. Elicit the value of the beliefs from above.
  8. Elicit the meaningful outcomes (mission) that are generated throughout the client’s life by the values from above.
  9. Elicit the overall impact (vision) of the mission from above.
  10. Associate client into their vision to feel the energy of it, then elicit their purpose – either for their entire life, or in the context where the issue prevails.
  11. Guide the client to identify and merge with the source of their purpose.
  12. Guide client back into soma centered open awareness – integrating energy and inspiration from their source.
  13. Elicit what the client has learned about themselves through this process.
  14. Elicit what the client’s next step will be toward fulfilling their purpose or learning from above.
  15. End with Self appreciation in soma centered open awareness.

 

NOTE: Although one cycle of the model (per session) might be good enough, the coach can include as many cycles as necessary until the client has achieved a satisfying result. Alternatively, after one clockwise cycle (as above), the client can then be taken through the process in an anticlockwise direction (as outlined below) in order to make it a more thorough process. The most thorough process is to elicit all aspects of the client´s issue: state, trigger, behaviour, etc. on all relevant levels: body, mind, emotion, etc. in each each segment of the spiral before moving on to the following segment – first going around in one direction, then the other direction. There are certain circumstances when the TCM should only be applied in one direction.

 

Indecision, procrastination, inner turmoil, conflicting priorities, dilemma, uncertainty, overactive thinking (monkey mind), sleep problems, chronic fatigue, burnout, etc:

  1. Guide client into open awareness.
  2. Guide client toward the source of their existence as much as possible using the ‘ASE Present Resourcing‘ method.
  3. Elicit client’s core purpose for their entire life on earth.
  4. Elicit the overall impact (vision) that fulfilling the client’s purpose can lead to.
  5. Elicit the outcomes (mission) that the client can foresee, being inspired by their vision.
  6. Elicit what is important (values) to the client about achieving the outcomes stated above.
  7. Elicit the client’s beliefs (about themselves and their capabilities) that support their values.
  8. Elicit client’s identity with the above beliefs, values, mission, vision and purpose in awareness.
  9. Elicit the behaviours that the client can conceive of when motivated by their identity and purpose.
  10. Elicit client’s next step (trigger) to get the ball rolling toward fulfilling their purpose.
  11. Have the client imagine taking the step from above while feeling the energy (state) of what it’s like to fulfill their purpose.
  12. End with Self appreciation in soma centered open awareness.

 

Addictions: Use both versions of the TCM outlined above in one session, starting with the first version.
(Can be integrated into more comprehensive addiction cessation programmes)

 

Physical pain, psychosomatic disorders, allergies, autoimmune diseases, chronic health issues that medical care has not resolved, etc:

  1. Guide client to place all their awareness on/in the main symptom, allowing it to be as it is (current state).
  2. Guide client into open awareness with the main symptom being at the center.
  3. Elicit how the symptom affects the client (trigger) on all relevant levels (starting with body, ending with spirit).
  4. Elicit the message of the symptom – its purpose (often a hidden benefit or a call to action).
  5. Elicit what the client will do to address the purpose of the symptom – a new behaviour.
  6. Guide client into open awareness with the symptom being at the center – and then have them observe how their experience of the symptom shifts progressively (new state).
  7. Have the client visualize themselves completely healed and enjoying a life of greater well-being and vitality (new identitymissionvision).
  8. End with Self appreciation in soma centered open awareness.

 

Challenges on the path of personal development, existential crisis, difficulties relating to spiritual awakening, problems with transpersonal phenomena, etc:

  1. Guide client into soma centered open awareness.
  2. Help client to identify and articulate their present state on all seven levels.
  3. Extend open awareness further by elaborating on the expanded sense of self and the interconnection of phenomena.
  4. Using the ‘ASE Present Resourcing‘ method, guide client to identify how their present state has come into existence.
  5. Guide client toward the source of their present state as much as possible.
  6. Elicit the core purpose of the source of the client’s present state in relation to their current life situation (from step 1).
  7. Elicit the overall impact (vision) that fulfilling the purpose can lead to.
  8. Elicit the outcomes (mission) that the client can foresee, being inspired by their vision.
  9. Elicit what is important (values) to the client about achieving the outcomes stated above.
  10. Elicit what the client’s beliefs are (about themselves and their capabilities) that support their values.
  11. Elicit client’s identity with the above beliefs, values, mission, vision and purpose in awareness.
  12. Elicit the behaviours that the client can conceive of when staying true to their identity and purpose.

Working with groups — This version of the TCM can help to resolve issues in the contexts of leadership, management, organisational change, corporate image, team building, business performance, interpersonal problems, communication breakdowns, etc:

  1. Have the group sit in a circle and guide them into a collective open awareness – with emphasis on the space in-between all members of the group.
  2. Elicit the state of the group in the context where they are experiencing the main issue.
  3. Elicit the most common trigger(s) of the state from above.
  4. Elicit the main problem behaviour(s) resulting from the trigger(s).

  6. Elicit what the group believes are about itself and its capabilities in the issue context.
  7. Elicit the group´s values in this context.
  8. Elicit the meaningful outcomes (mission) that these values are (or could be) generating.
  9. Elicit the overall impact (vision) of the mission from above.
  10. Associate the group into the experience of what it would be like to fulfill their vision, then elicit the group’s purpose in the context where their issue prevails.
  11. Guide the group to sense and feel the current energy/state of the entire group, by once again focusing on the space in-between all members of the group (source).
  12. Elicit what the group has learned about itself through this process.
  13. Elicit what the group’s next step will be toward fulfilling their purpose or learning from above.
  14. End with a discussion and agreement about how to implement the step from above.

 

While specific variations of the TCM model have been outlined above for addressing typical coaching issues, please note that there are also other variations of the TCM (not outlined on this page) and that no specific variation will always be the winning formula for a specific issue. Transpersonal Coaches are trained to use all variations of the TCM, as well as how to adapt them. They are also trained to calibrate to each client’s deeper needs, the unconscious causes of the client’s issues, as well as both their conscious and unconscious communication (feedback) throughout the coaching process. As such, transpersonal coaches are able to adapt the TCM according to each client.
