Find a Certified Spiritual Emergence Coach®

Certified Spiritual Emergence Coach Directory

A Spiritual Emergence Coach® is trained to recognize psycho-spiritual phenomena and support those who are challenged by the ups and downs these unusual phenomena can create. Examples include: psychic opening, near-death experience, kundalini awakening, and shamanic journey.  (More explanation is here.)  As increasing numbers of people around the world are having these experiences, there is increased need to offer them support so that positive potential transformation is assured (rather than a faulty diagnosis of mental illness).

Integrative Mental Health for You (IMHU) has certified  72 Spiritual Emergence Coaches® (SEC) from 14 countries who have completed  our Spiritual Emergence Certification Program, and thus qualify to be in our Directory.  The aim of this Directory is to help you locate an IMHU- certified  Spiritual Emergence Coach®.

If you are looking for a Spiritual Emergence Coach® for  a support group with like minded people:  Please scroll down to locate an SEC close to where you live. Countries are in alphabetical order.  This database contains SECs who have many different backgrounds and licenses.  Some of them consult online via skype so don’t feel limited by a person’s physical location.  If you are looking for individual consultation please read the following paragraphs to help locate an SEC who is qualified to assist you.

What the STARS *** indicate in the Directory:

All Spiritual Emergence Coaches we certify have been taught a theoretical base of knowledge about Spiritual Emergence and Spiritual Emergency and relevant guidelines on how to lead successful support groups that share experiences and resources.  Any Spiritual Emergence Coach® listed below may offer support group facilitation for people who are experiencing intense phenomena associated with spiritual experiences. The SEC and group members in these groups share experiences and resources in a spirit of support.   This results in further integration and peace of mind for all involved.  SEC’s support groups may be available online or in person and, in some cases, include private social media discussion groups.  Any of the people listed below may also be sources of referral.

Certification as a Spiritual Emergence Coach® does not qualify a SEC to act as a healthcare or mental health practitioner. See “Disclaimer of Warranties and Liabilities” below.

SECs are required to work within the mandates of their own individual licenses, scopes of practice, skills and knowledge regarding sessions of coaching or counseling individuals one to one or in a group.  In the following list those with ** designate a person with a certificate to be a coach.  Those with *** have obtained a  license from their state/ country to do one on one psychotherapy and/or  counseling.  Those without stars are not authorized by a licensing authority in their state or country to do one on one coaching or counseling or psychotherapy but are amply educated and skilled to lead support groups as a certified Spiritual Emergence Coach.

SECs do not replace responsible healthcare or mental health professionals, but can be an adjunct support to such providers. Similarly, Spiritual Emergence facilitation either one to one or in support groups is not a replacement for other treatment or therapy. If you are in a crisis, please seek out your trusted healthcare provider.

Anyone who holds himself or herself out as a qualified professional mental health practitioner must have obtained their relevant credential, training, and/or license independent of IMHU certification.
