Coach TraininG

Leading-edge ICF Accredited Coach Training and Presence-Based Coaching Certification

Our program integrates coaching, developmental and integral psychologies, somatics, interpersonal neurobiology and mindfulness. Coursework is deeply grounded in a robust model of human development. Some of our students have been coaching for years and have run into the limitations of existing coaching models. Other students are new to coaching. Both of these groups are now integrating Presence-Based Coaching® methodologies to expand what they offer. This work is smart, leading edge and accessible.

Which program is right for me?

Our Core Practitioner program is where everyone must start. This program gives you a solid coaching foundation with our unique methodology, tons of tools and practices to use with clients, connection to a cohort of students who are learning and growing alongside you, all while sharpening your coaching skills the whole way through.

The Core Practitioner program has 3 parts – PBC I (in person 3-day retreat), PBC II (in person 4-day retreat) and Mentor Coaching (virtual, 3-month class). It usually takes about 12 weeks to complete PBC I and II, and another 3 months to complete Mentor Coaching, for a total of 24 weeks or 6 months of training. This Core Coaching course gives you enough coach training hours to pursue your ICF coaching credential at the ACC level.

If you’re interested in continuing on with us to develop Advanced Coaching skills and become a Certified Presence-Based Coach, you’ll want to start with the Core Practitioner course, and then continue on with our Advanced Practitioner Course (LIPCC) which lasts 6 months. This Advanced Coaching course gives you enough coach training hours to pursue your ICF coaching credential at the PCC level.
