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.

Standard logical left-brain coaching methodologies cut us off from connecting to the brilliance we all have inside.  Whole Brain coaching ignites genius thinking by activating both the logical, process oriented Left Brain and the intuitive, creative Right Brain for results that truly access the deepest and highest wisdom for innovative, genius solutions in every session. You will be astonished at the results!

4. OUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND DRIVES OUR LIVES- Where is it leading us? Science continues to illuminate the expansive control our Subconscious Mind has over our thoughts and behaviors. Because our subconscious mind is so much stronger than our conscious mind, willpower and intention alone cannot ensure achieving the success we aim for. To be effective, a coach must have the advanced skills and tools to offer a client access to their subconscious mind, where all the roadblocks and unconstructive patterns and habits are stored. This new awareness provides opportunity to create massive shifts by transforming these unconstructive patterns into positive beliefs and behaviors that supports achievement of our vision and goals. Then our conscious mind can work in harmony with our subconscious mind to drive success in every endeavor.  Your clients will love discovering their subconscious beliefs and patterns. You will shine like a Star in the coaching world.
