What Students Say

"The ICCI is an empowerment place that everyone needs to know, especially the international community struggling to find a place where they can empower themselves, and this is the place. For me, it has become a gospel."

"It was clear that this programme is not only going to teach you how to coach, but also how to become that person who can coach. And this I felt was essential for my personal growth, as well as my professional development"
Bernard Shanahan

"The diversity of the group on the course lets me see the different life philosophies from different cultures and different countries. It helps me to expand my understanding on diversity which is so fantastic for me. I really feel the non-judgemental and authentic environment that we have on the course, which really helps with the psychological safety, and being open and sharing. Even though it’s for the sake of an exercise, this is really helping us. You’re always practicing with 2 other people, and many times one of the 3 instructors who are always in the room: It feels like a comfort circle that is there for you to support you. So on top of getting coaching, it’s almost like a having a network system who supports you, and I think that is the bonus of the course. "

"I have never been on a course that I have learnt so much and grown so much as this one. Even if coaching others is not your end goal, Phase 1 on its own helps you connect so much to yourself as a person, and the incredible interaction between peers where we coach and help one another throughout the course adds an immense personal benefit to the course that greatly enhances your personal growth. I would recommend this course to everyone. "

"As much as I’ve studied, I’ve never actually had to participate this much before. Up until now it’s always been theory. I have little real-life experience in the things that matter to me. People and connecting with them. I’ve never felt safe enough to come out of this comfort zone. It’s only day two on this course and I’m already comfortable. I don’t feel judged. I feel held. What a great experience to feel like I can be myself in a learning environment."

"I was happy to learn that this training is based on the Humanistic and Person Centered approach, which really helps you to understand people's behaviour. I connected to this approach and now it helps me to help others"
Pedro Lechuga-Farías - Mexico

"The energy the trainers bring into classroom or through zoom is awesome. The connectivity between students and trainers, even online, is something I personally treasure. "

"My only goal was to enhance my perspective about coaching and attain better understanding along with proper tools which could be learned through the course to become a skilful helper. I am happy that I achieved what I was hoping to from this course but I am much happier to have achieved what I was not expecting. This course has been a self-development journey and a lot to face about my own individuality as well. I am so proud of myself for taking on this course."
Sumbal Ishrat - Pakistan
Educator
"The course at the ICCI was what I was looking for: an international group full of different perspectives, and plenty of opportunities for practical experience. Noa and Sharon, the course trainers, are warm, friendly, and know how to create the kind of atmosphere where everyone feels free to develop their own personal coaching style. I feel that I've learned a lot that will help me as a person when it comes to being there for others. It's also inspired me to take this further on a professional level and continue training. I'd definitely recommend this course to anyone who's interested in beginning the journey to a skilled helper!"
Kate Kingsford - UK
PhD and University lecturer
"This training gave me a lot of insights into other people: to understand how they think and how they feel"
