The Catholic Coaching Podcast

When we encountered New Age philosophies in Life Coaching that ran counter to our Christian beliefs, we decided to take the best practices of Life Coaching and infuse them with the rich traditions of our Catholic Faith. We're Matt and Erin Ingold, Catholic coaches and the founders of Metanoia Catholic, our Catholic Life Coaching Company. Join us as we share practical coaching tips to being transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you can be free to discover and choose your greatest calling in life.

In this episode, we discuss the importance of finding your niche. We are all called to be a gift – whether you’re a coach, have your own ministry, or your own family. You can’t make yourself a gift unless you know what your specific gifts are.

Picking a niche is acknowledging and claiming how the Holy Spirit is uniquely overflowing from you into others. It gives such glory to God and healing to the body of Christ. You may be a coach...

By far our most popular podcast series in 2022 was on the four temperaments. We get it. The journey towards heaven always starts with self-awareness, and for that, temperaments are a great starting point.

We know at Metanoia how transformative journaling can be, but also know that based on your temperament some questions may be better journal prompts than others.

So, for the next 4 episodes, we'll be sharing the best journal pro...

There are four pillars of formation for the human person: Intellectual formation, spiritual formation, vocational formation, and human formation.

Human formation is an area that we've recognized as a deep poverty in the church. This will be a complete game changer because it is the foundation that all other pillars are built upon.

Sure, we can know theology back and forth intellectually and spiritually, but c...
