Mentor Coaching & Supervision
Mentor Coaching for ICF credentialing supports coach competency against the researched set of ICF Core Competencies. You may be seeking an ICF credential or looking to renew your credential. I work with clients who want to anchor the core competencies into their coaching practice, who seek to go beyond the doing work of a coach, to being a coach.
In supervision, we put your relationship with your coaching client at the heart of the work. Who you are, and how you show up with your clients creates a helpful wide-angled lens. I work with coaches who are curious about the relationships they form with clients and the systems of which they become a part. See more of what is going on and create more possibilities for how you can support your clients.
The Mentor Coach Programme
Beneficial for coaches which are:
seeking their first credential at ACC or PCC level with the ICF and undergoing coach training with an accredited provider
seeking re-accredittion at ACC level
The 10hr (10x 1hr) programme follows this flow:
Contracting & ICF Competency Review and Plan
Coach Mentor session held every 3-5 wks. Focus given to areas identified in the Competency Review; to specific client issues; to coach style & stance
Verbal feedback on recordings to improve competency
Support to navigate and access ICF credential pathways
All sessions are held individually online using ZOOM, with recordings made available on request.
£900 (if paid upfront)
£100/hr (if paid session by session)
Beneficial for coaches who are committed to reflect on and strengthen their coaching practice within a 6-12 month supervisory relationship. This investment is worthwhile for coaches who want to give themselves and their practice a high degree of focus and support.
The 6hr (6x1hr) programme flow is defined by the needs of the coach. It includes the following qualities [Inskipp and Proctor (2001)]
Restorative - the being of the coach; energy; resourcing oneself; practice of coaching within your life and mix of work
Formative - competency, skills, approaches, perspectives and skill in application
Normative - safe and ethical standards; working within competency; boundaries and quality
The frequency of sessions is determined by the coach, and within the context of the frequency of their coaching practice.
All sessions are held individually online using ZOOM.
£900 (paid upfront)
Supervision is not an ICF requirement. However, ICF Credential-holders may submit up to 10 hours of Coaching supervision as Core Competency Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units toward their credential renewal.

ICF Mentor Coach requirements
The ICF requires coaches seeking ACC credential or re-credential requires 10 hours of Mentor Coach time with a coach who is qualified to at least ACC standard, and who has renewed their credential at least once. For coaches seeking a PCC credential, the Mentor Coach must hold a PCC credential.
