Interview with Health & Wellness Coach Tom Seaman

Having overcome significant health challenges, ICA Coach Tom Seaman’s journey is nothing short of inspirational, demonstrating how we can rise from the depths of despair to a life full of hope, triumph, and joy.


ICA's Integrated Coaching Model

One of the elements of our training that we are most proud of is that we teach our students to create their own coaching model.  So, we ask them to answer the question - how would you like to coach?  By doing this, our coaches graduate with their own coaching uniqueness and their model speaks to future clients about who they are as a coach and who they will coach.

The ICA Integrated Coaching model is a style or process of coaching that is integrated in the following ways:

1. It draws on the skills, knowledge or experience of the coach to create a unique and powerful model.

Every student who comes to ICA comes with their own unique blend of skills, knowledge and experience. Often this can come from a workplace or profession but it can also come from travel, parenting or general life experiences. The important thing is, that no matter what it is or where it came from, your coaching can benefit and even be shaped by this experience. You are not, as they say “an empty vessel” to be filled up with coaching “knowledge” Rather you are an amazing individual who has a totally unique perspective on life that has been shaped by the millions of experiences you have had in your life.

2. It draws upon and is integrated with one or more coaching related philosophies or influences

Coaching is a “hybrid’ profession and has been influenced by many other disciplines and philosophies.
