General Description

Mentor Coaching is invaluable for deepening your integration of Presence-Based methodology, working with your own habits, and preparing you both for credentialing with ICF and for the Presence-Based Coaching certification exam.

The Mentor Coaching Course includes 10 hours of instruction:

  • seven hours of group coaching with live participant and faculty feedback
  • faculty review of individual written or live feedback on three recorded coaching conversations

All interactive work is conducted via conference call.

The Mentor Coaching process can begin as soon as the completion of your PBC II retreat, and will extend for a minimum of 3 months. Each cohort includes four to eight students. Cohorts begin at a specific time and date; times for the remaining four group calls will be scheduled as a group during the first call. (Note: ICF requires that all class calls be attended live; any missed calls must be made up at extra cost.)


Five group calls spread over three months, plus individual audio review work with individualized feedback. PBC II is a pre-requisite. 10 ICF coach training hours, all distance learning.
