What makes this certified training so special?

Why are these skills so important nowadays?

More than ever people are looking for help. That’s a good sign too, because it means that the stigma is disappearing bit by bit.

However, it still is a big step to ask for mental help. We discovered that online coaching is as impactful as face-to-face coaching but lowers the threshold to seek help. Clients can stay at home in their own safe environment, while chatting anonymously with their coach. 

This way we can help more people that need help but are afraid to go to a psychologist. As a coach it is very valuable to be able to offer online coaching and chat-based coaching, based on a very effective method. 

Why should you want to be and stay ICF certified?

ICF is the gold standard in coaching. Once you are ICF certified, it means that you have gone through rigorous training and demonstrate the ICF core coaching compentencies. Easily said: it shows that you are a professional coach and it helps you to differentiate from other coaches.​
