Life Coaching

Help people improve mind, body & soul

When coaching was a new profession, 10 or 15 years ago, it was perfectly acceptable to simply call yourself a coach. But today the coaching profession is well developed across many industries and professions around the globe and the need to specialize is increasing.  The opportunity for niching is limitless, and we've categorised them into 4 key streams; Life Coaching, Business Coaching, Executive Coaching, Health and Wellness Coaching

Life coaches work with clients in a range of settings, some in face to face meetings but the majority via phone coaching. This means you are unlimited in your client possibilities - you can coach clients from all over the world. You can also be located anywhere in the world and take your business with you as you travel. Life coaching is an incredibly flexible, rewarding career.

* seeking meaning & life purpose

Interview with ICA Graduate, Mindy Kaleta (Life Coach)

When ICA graduate Mindy Kaleta sees a woman who is mindlessly moving through life unaware of her true potential, she feels deeply for her.  That’s because Mindy was once that woman. Divorced and going through her own transition, she experienced the power of coaching and the critical need for support when taking on a big challenge.

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.
