Former

FORMER SECs:

Each individual listed below was previously certified as a Spiritual Emergence Coach® after their training at IMHU.

These former SECs have elected not to keep up with the Spiritual Emergence Coach® network via annual meetups and continuing education.  Click HERE for the Directory of  Spiritual Emergence Coaches® that do stay actively engaged with annual meetups and continuing education.

What the STARS *** indicate in this 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.

What Does A Spiritual Emergence Coach® Do/ Not Do?

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 and are currently registered.  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.

Disclaimer of Warranties and Liabilities

Many certified Spiritual Emergence Coaches also have other credentialing, professional training and/or licensure to practice in their respective field as a mental health counselor or therapist. IMHU certification as a Spiritual Emergence Coach does not replace any such appropriate licensure in the fields of counseling, social work, psychology, psychiatry or any other similar credentialing as a licensed healthcare or mental health practitioner. 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.
