No, it is not a good short cut to becoming a psychologist. There are no short cuts. You need the proper schooling.

One things life skills coach will teach another: there ARE NO SHORTCUTS!

And, getting certified as life skills coach is not just a walk in the park. You need to demonstrate by example.

You keep asking variations of the same question. You want a low risk job that makes lots of money and requires no training. There are no such jobs.

You also have the disadvantages of not having a college degree (and keep failing you high school equivalency tests), no work history, can’t drive and don’t own a car. This is in addition to having an undiagnosable psychiatric disorder. I can’t judge how much of an obstacle this is, thought the Canadian government thinks it is serious enough to provide a living wage, and you have spoken here of having anxiety attacks when you leave your apartment.

You need to seriously come up with a step by step plan to achieve some realistic goals. Are you up for it?

To be a life skills coach you need to have proven that you have what it takes to….be a life skills coach. This means having well… life skills.

I would suggest finding a successful life skills coach and then let them coach you first. This will help you identify where you are at while giving you indirect training on doing that person’s job.
