Certifications in professional Purpose Coaching + 7 Processes

Offer unique purpose coaching the InnerLifeSkills way


I used to believe that our life purpose was something we were meant to do. This left me with the stress of finding out what I was meant to do.

Imagine my surprise when coaching myself 25+ years ago, trying to figure out what to do about my collapsing finances and sick baby daughter, when my inner wisdom said, “You’re asking the wrong question; instead of asking what should I do, rather ask who am I?”

This confused me, but the insight unfolded with life-changing wisdom, “If you were an apple tree and didn’t know you were an apple tree, how would you know what to do?”

The logic was sound, but more importantly, it landed intuitively. That moment changed my life from a doing question to a being quest. I needed to find and free my true self, my apple tree, to fulfil my life purpose.

Everything changed. Even this brand InnerLifeSkills is an expression of my apple tree. And nearly 30 years later, I owe everything to finding and freeing my apple tree.

That’s the kind of purpose coaching you’ll learn from us.

What you’ll learn [Curriculum]


Life purpose and life purpose coaching is inspiring to work with, so it’s no wonder that many coaching programs and coaches offer it. But we want you to be able to go beyond the usual ‘find your passion’ conversation often associated with life-purpose coaching.

This course contains everything you need to offer professional purpose coaching:

Being quest vs Doing Quest

The key difference our purpose coaching brings is we focus on helping clients switch from a doing quest to a being quest. An apple tree knows what to do because it knows who it is. An apple tree’s purpose is to be an apple tree, and this beingness is expressed through everything it does.

When we guide clients to find and free their apple tree’s true self and express this, they naturally express their purpose.

3 Purpose Processes

At the centre of our Purpose Coaching work lies 3 simple yet powerful processes.


  1. The Sap Thread Process – to guide clients to look for the golden thread of common clues to their apple tree natural selves.
  2. The Ideal Island – we help clients look beyond fear and survival programming to discover who they naturally are when they are free.
  3. The I Am Statement – we crystalize the insights into an affirmation style I Am Statement that the client can use to step up and step into their apple tree purposeful being.

Unlock your earning potential with this unique toolbox

Our Master Coaches tell us how popular the Apple Tree style Purpose Coaching is in companies to motivate teams to bring their whole selves to what they do, to life coaching clients seeking meaning and direction.
