Education Search Service (ESS)

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) does not offer initial education and training to become a coach (we only offer professional development for practiced coaches). As the accrediting body for coach-specific education and accredited providers, we cannot recommend any specific coaching education organizations.

To ensure quality education, ICF accredits coaching education organizations that meet the high standards set forth by ICF and ICF Coaching Education. To find ICF-Accredited Providers we suggest that you use our Education Search Service (ESS) below. The search for a coach education program is a highly individual process that depends greatly on your personal preferences and goals. The ESS is designed to give you basic information about all ICF-Accredited Education Providers.


For further information, please contact this training organization rather than the ICF office. The ICF recommends all approved programs equally and cannot recommend one program over another.

Program Description:

Healing from the Core® for Coaches is an educational program in building somatic presence, grounding, and energetic discernment designed specifically for professional coaches. It offers a simple yet profound, practical methodology that is highly relevant and valuable for today's coaches of all kinds. This work fills an important gap in coaches’ skill training – providing the "how-to" steps for remaining steady and clear-headed under pressure and having a physical/energetic presence that allows for deep work, as well as healthy boundaries and connections with clients. In short, this work teaches vital tools for staying energized and inspired (a known antidote to burnout) and helps professionals build solid skills for energy management and personal renewal.

This online workshop is designed to enhance coaching outcomes by improving their coaching presence, grounding, and healthy boundaries to open up the pathways to creativity. Healing from the Core® teaches excellent communication skills — including dialoguing, pacing, and reframing, through lectures, demonstrations, and practices of each technique presented.

Coaches will learn all of these foundational skills:

  • Stimulate the creative process

  • Allow you to access your inner aliveness, and remove blocks to inner transformation

  • Balance mind, body, and spirit

  • Support the compassionate heart

  • Cultivate the capacity to assess and track the client, facilitating their inner creative process and healing where needed

  • Help clients become more grounded, full, and connected to vital life force energy by harnessing the attributes of curiosity, awareness, and trust.

This course supports both in-person or virtual coaching practice.
