Hone your self-awareness and practice coaching at a deeper, more impactful level under expert guidance in an experiential learning environment. The Gestalt approach to coaching is dynamic, holistic and creative. The Program is based on the Gestalt Coaching Stance first introduced at the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland and is dedicated to increasing awareness of your coaching presence and its impact while deepening your coaching knowledge and skills.  Application of International Coach Federation (ICF) and Board Certified Coach (BCC) core competencies are an integral part of the program.

Accredited Coach Training Program ACTP ICF

The Program has four in-person sequential sessions offered every other month.  The first session covers basic coaching practices, Gestalt concepts and methodology and ICF core competencies.  Each succeeding session expands your ability to apply new and more in-depth knowledge and coaching skills.  Concepts and skills related to adult development, coaching across differences and somatic coaching are integrated throughout the Program.

GPCC™ certification is conferred upon successfully completing the requirements.  The Program is accredited by ICF (ACTP) and the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE). Upon successful completion of the Program, you are eligible to apply for ICF certification and to CCE to become a Board Certified Coach.
