ICCI trainers:

Founder, Courses Manager and Expert Trainer
Noa Brume

Noa is our manager and main trainer for the International Coaching Diploma course.

She has been training coaching courses since 2013 and is a liked and highly respected trainer who brings real results to her students. It’s her positive and dynamic approach that makes her teaching interesting and engaging.

Noa is a highly qualified and greatly experienced trainer, she has been teaching adults since 1993. For many years she taught at the Rothberg International School at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and later on at the Oriental Institute at Oxford University in England.

Having lived in Israel (where she’s originally from), Paris, London, and now The Hague, Noa is well-traveled and well-experienced in being an expat. Since moving to The Netherlands, Noa has been highly involved in the International community in The Hague.
This experience has given her an insightful understanding of the diversity in culture and needs of people who come from different backgrounds, which translates into her work as a trainer on the courses.

Noa’s private client work combines both coaching and counselling, which brings depth to her work with her clients.
Although strongly believing in our way of working with the humanistic and Person-centered approach to coaching, Noa has been interested in many other methods of the profession and is constantly expanding and broadening her professional knowledge.
She’ll be sharing all that with you, the students.

Noa is a popular trainer and lecturer with international companies and organisations based in The Netherlands. She’s often invited to give training and talks on various topics related to personal and professional development, coaching, and leadership. In 2015 she gave her first inspirational TEDx talk.
She does that through her company NBmove.

Assistant – Alexis Downing

Alexis lives in Capelle aan den IJssel and is an Assistant with the ICCI.

A certified coach affiliated with NOBCO/EMCC and has her own practice, In Life and Loss Coaching dedicated to aiding individuals navigating the complexities of loss and grief. Currently, Alexis is also actively engaged in training charity employees in non-death loss within her local community.

Leaving the UK as a child, she has lived in France, Spain, UAE, and The Netherlands which she now calls home and although she has never called herself an expat, she empathises with the challenges of relocation.
