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.

Organization Description:

Academy of Leadership Coaching & NLP (ALCN), is a global coach training company rooted in the legacy of the Academy of Coaching & NLP training coaches since 2001. Guided by Founder and Master Certified Coach, Helen Attridge, ALCN utilizes the unique Conscious Change Method®, a finely honed framework developed over three decades of global leadership, coaching and training experience.

The Conscious Change Method® systematically addresses challenges, dismantling barriers from limiting beliefs to sabotaging behavior patterns, empowering clients to embody tangible, impactful, lasting change through advanced NLP Somatic coaching skills.

At ALCN, we redefine coaching for professionals transitioning to a coaching career or seeking to elevate their skillset. Our distinctive approach seamlessly integrates Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Somatic coaching and ICF's pure coaching model, providing coaches with a robust skillset and a powerful mindset for personal evolution.

Our Mission:

"We believe personal growth and positive societal change are two sides of the same coin. Gain the skills to lead the change."

We are on a mission to create a more loving, connected, and compassionate world. Our coach training empowers professionals to navigate transitions with poise, freedom, and flexibility by cultivating deep connections to self and leveraging inner wisdom and natural strengths. Through our strategic coaching approach, we foster a community of high-level professionals and coaches making a purposeful impact globally, armed with up-to-date tools and skills aligning with the evolving landscape of today's world.

ALCN is a truly global community with over 7,500 graduates from 75 countries.

Program Description:

In a landscape of high-level professionals in transition, ALCN embraces the mission of redefining coaching for those seeking to create a meaningful impact.

This Program provides an opportunity to embark on a transformative journey with the NLP Somatic Coach® Certification, a self-paced, fully supported 1 to 1 coach training program, tailored for busy professionals in search of flexibility and top-tier support.

The Conscious Change Method® and Inner Alignment Map (I AM Map)® were designed to foster a deeper understanding of the internal processes that drive decision-making and action in order to make lasting and transformative changes in life. We each operate based on our own unique map of the world. By understanding how our individual maps have been shaped and programmed over time, we can start to identify and upgrade parts of the system that are no longer working for us and design the life we want in order to live in alignment with our mission and vision. A unique combination of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Somatic Embodiment, Mindfulness and ICF’s Pure Coaching skills, this method is a cross-cultural framework designed to create conscious change while creating inner alignment and supporting clients in fully embodying the changes they make.

The Conscious Change Method® has been developed by ALCN's Founder, a successful international coach and a pioneer in the coaching profession. Helen has trained and mentored coaches on six continents, working location-independent throughout her three decade coaching career. If you are seeking a deeply personal experience while learning transformational coaching techniques to support you in aligning with your vision and mission (and helping your clients to do the same), this training is for you.

The program takes you beyond the procedural methods offered in most coach training programs and equips you with the necessary skills to become a full-time or part-time professional or personal life coach, business coach, health coach, executive coach or leadership coach. For those who coach on the job, such as managers, executives, teachers, parents, therapists, decision-makers, directors and trainers, this training is an excellent choice too.
