All coaches who want to achieve International Coaching Federation ACC & PCC credentialing.
ICF-certified coaches who want to polish their skills and add somatic tools to their coaching practice.
Our goal is for you to embody ICF competencies, rather than simply using them as a coaching technique. Your clients will notice the difference!
Are you motivated to make a difference in your life and in your clients’ lives?
While this may be a rigorous process at times, with patience, YOU WILL BE the kind of coach you want to become!
What you’ll get with my Mentor Coaching:
“If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone.”
I know you’re excited to get started on the next stage of your coaching career, and it may be that you’re a little uncertain and intimidated by the process… so let’s answer a few questions for you…
We’ll begin with a 20–30-minute zoom consultation to see if we are a good fit. At this time, please ask questions about my experience, philosophy, and structure of our work together. When we agree to work together you’ll receive a contract where I describe each party’s responsibilities.
While the standards are the same, this Mentor Coaching service is not a one-size-fits-all approach. It is tailored to your needs, as you strive for ICF competencies.
Knowing how to choose a Mentor Coach isn’t primarily based on if you like your coach, although that’s ideal. What’s important is to choose a coach who daily uses the skills you want to learn. The best coach will challenge you and help you grow.
Some of the things that make my ICF Mentor Coaching unique:
I encourage you to interview more than one mentor coach candidate in order to find the best match for you. When you have your consultation, you’re interviewing her and she’s interviewing you to see if you’re a good fit for each other.
Rather than asking, “Will I be comfortable with this person?” ask, “Will this person push me, challenge me in a kind, respectful and firm way?”
“Every great move forward in your life begins with a leap of faith, a step into the unknown”
I applaud the coach you are and the work you’ve put into getting where you are. However, your previous training may have developed within you an unconscious competence. (I know this personally! I came from a NLP background and had to unlearn so much to make room for ICF Competencies.)
The process can be challenging, and at times, discouraging and very frustrating. Because I’ve walked in your shoes, I promise to support you through this process with kindness and humor. I look forward to guiding you each step of the way.
I invite you to learn more about me and my Mentor Coaching services. Please contact me to schedule your 30-minute complimentary consultation, by phone or via video consultation, so we can explore our partnership.
“Coming together is a beginning: keeping together is progress; working together is success.”
If I want to be a life coach, but I’m not interested in ICF, can this program help me? This is not a program but a service for ICF coaches who are working toward their ACC or PCC credentialing. It sounds like my Stepping Forward Program or Somatic Coaching is a better fit for you. Feel free to contact me about working together.
Does the 30-minute ICF Mentor Coach Consultation count toward the required 10 hours of coaching? No, it’s a way to establish our work together and set up the structure for the recordings.
How long does ICF Mentor Coaching take from start to finish? It’s a total of 10 sessions, so, together, we will decide on the pace YOU can handle.
Does working with an ICF Mentor Coach guarantee that I will obtain my credentialing? No. Mentor coaching thoroughly prepares you for it, but it’s up to you to meet ICF requirements.
What are my options if this coaching relationship doesn’t work out? Like any other coaching relationship, we’ll do our best to make sure we’re a good fit. If challenges arise, we’ll try to resolve them together. In case of irreconcilable differences, we’ll stop, and the hours spent together will still count toward credentialing.
Do you offer Group Coaching? No, I only provide individual coaching, as this is more personalized and effective.
Do you offer in-person coaching? I love the flexibilty and savings of time and money that video conferencing gives us. So even if you live in Ashland, Oregon, please connect with me from the comfort of your own space.
Do you have further questions? Write them down and we can discuss them during your initial consultation. Are you ready to take the leap?
