Karen Liebenguth, AMC

“I enjoyed the whole process of master coach accreditation. It was an important way of reviewing and deepening my coaching skills. I felt very well supported by the IAPC&M along the way, and the CPD resources made available during this process were fantastic and very helpful”.

Anna Ceesay, APC

“Getting accredited with IAPC&M is something every coach should do. The accreditation process is rigorous and demands high standards, which makes me proud to have recently achieved my Accredited Practitioner Coach (APC) status. Dawn and David are very supportive and easy to communicate with. I now feel part of a global family of coaches who are striving for the best service for our clients. Thank you to IAPC&M for welcoming me into your community”.

Tri-Coaching Partnerships

“Having achieved accreditation for our Excellence in Coaching Programme, we found the process to be very efficient. Also, the support has been great from David and Dawn. As co-MDs we first became accredited individually as Fellow Coaches & Mentors, then applied for our programme to be accredited. The launch of our Excellence in Coaching Programme proved to be very successful thanks to our accreditation, which instils our clients with confidence to be the best coaches they can be“.

Hulya Kurt, APC

“After passing a very intense capability call, followed by an in depth feedback, I was allowed to have the Senior Assessment Interview, demonstrating mentor qualities rather than coaching which differs. David, gave me very detailed information about how the session will be conducted, what I could expect and what would be the next steps. I loved especially the beginning of each session breaking the ice first and warming up, like you would do prior any race. You forget about that you are in a kind of exam. Very useful and helps to upskill yourself, the extraordinary feedback with samples of questions, comments and what could had been better. Thanks for such a great assessment”.

Nicole Balmer, APC

“I am so excited to be accredited with the IAPC&M. They have been wonderful throughout their training videos and the support provided in feeling prepared for the assessment and what to expect. It’s an amazing feeling to be a part of such a top-class organisation and I’m excited about my future coaching and progression alongside them”.

Sean McCallum, AMC

“The whole accreditation process has been inspiring. Our CrISIS Schema Workshop is the culmination of years of development in the field of psychological first aid – we weren’t about to have it accredited by just any old organisation, and the IAPC&M didn’t let us down. We were seeking an accreditation process that challenged us to improve, and that’s just what we got. We already knew that we’d got a nugget of gold, and the IAPC&M helped us to polish it and have it shine even brighter! A key thing for us was the values based approach that the IAPC&M have in all they do, and that aligned well for us as a non-profit company with a deep social connection. In short, a challenging and enlightening accreditation process, which we have benefitted from enormously”.

Caroline Jeffrey, APC

“My accreditation is an important asset to provide my clients and provides professionalism to my profile. The wonderful added bonus has been the huge value to myself in terms of personal development, growth and learning. The IAPC&M have, expertly and consistently supported me throughout the process of gaining my accreditation, and I’m so glad to have momentum of this continued support with my ongoing personal development”.

Eric Courturier, AFC

“So glad I did it! After looking at different organisations for accreditation, I am so glad I went with IAPC&M. We are working in a crowded market, where sadly, many people can do more damage than good. Having gone through the rigorous processes and being awarded a Fellow membership prove how serious Coaches & Mentors can be elevated from the masses and strive in their industry. If you are serious about our industry, and you want to punch above the rest, I genuinely recommend IAPC&M for you to make your mark. Dawn & David are beneficial, and make sure you are not left on your own during the process. As we strive for quality delivery from honest coaches & mentors, IAPC&M is definitely the awarding body to consider for your next move. The more profound question I now ask myself is…Why did I wait so long” ?

Emma Carroll, APC

“After completing my Diploma in Life Coaching it was important to me that I become accredited by a professional body, I wanted to be recognised as a professional coach and to ensure I was coaching my clients to a high standard of excellence. I am delighted I decided to apply for that accreditation with IAPC&M. Leading up to the assessment they were incredibly responsive to any queries, and I gained a lot from the coaching capability videos they have produced for IAPC&M Practitioners. The feedback I received post my assessment was constructive and extremely valuable to me when identifying areas for CPD. I am excited to start my journey with IAPC&M, I already feel supported by the team, and I am confident it will with provide great value and ROI”.

Aintherese Madden, APC

“For me it is really important to achieve Accreditation status so that clients can really feel they trust me and the work I do. The IAPC&M feedback helped me see my blind spots. I realised that it doesn’t matter how good we think we are or could be, what matters is the client’s story, their journey and personal capability”.
