Who we are

Welcome to the ICCI, the International Coaching & Counselling Institute: An English speaking training centre, established by and for internationals and serving the diverse and exciting growing international community in The Netherlands.

What do we believe in?

We believe that everyone has the right to develop and grow, and that people have more chance to overcome challenges when being supported by one another.

We also believe that with the right training, everyone can become a skilful helper and aid someone else, no matter what your background or life experience is: one can always be there for another.

We wish our students to become self-assured coaches who’re able to assist clients and help clients in the community to get the results they want, creating positive impact on their lives and the lives of others.

About us:

We specialise in training internationals to become coaches who can work both in The Netherlands and abroad; answering to the unique needs of the international community here as well as preparing them to work elsewhere in case they move on.

Our trainers on the courses were carefully chosen for their professionalism and ability to foster the development of the new generation of coaches.
They are all internationals who share many years of experience not only as coaches, but also in training coaching courses for the international community.
They’ve all received excellent feedback from students over the years and we’re confident that they’ll be leading you too to know how to assist others and draw pleasure from one of the most rewarding occupations we know.

How do we do it?

Our International Coaching Diploma course is a profound course compatible with coaching courses of a high standard. It is based on the Person-Centred approach to helping people.

At the end of it you’ll be a self-assured coach who’s able to assist clients and help them to get the results they want, creating positive impact on their lives and the lives of others.

It consists of 2 phases:

Phase I – Becoming a Skilful Helper: In which you’ll focus on establishing a solid helper’s toolkit and discover how to assist someone to go through a positive change in their life.

Phase II –The Professional Coach: In which you’ll take the knowledge from Phase I and put it in practice with real clients and develop to be a professional coach who’s able to work in the community.

This is:

  • A “hands-on” practice based course, so you’ll quickly believe in yourself and your skills. You get to practise and experience what you learn right from the beginning, with a lot of support and guidance from your trainers and the other students.
  • A “boutique course”: We train in small groups and there’s typically 2-3 members of staff on each training day so you get the best support such a course can offer.
  • A part-time course, taught on weekends or evenings, so people who work or have families can plan ahead and join us too.

People who have taken our courses in the past expressed how much they’ve developed personally and professionally in a short time, and how lovely it was for them to feel able and empowered to do the things they love doing, every day. You can read about their experience here.
