Certified Life Coach
There is currently no federal regulation in the coaching industry although the field is growing so fast, it likely will not be long. All coaches at Life Coach Library must provide proof that they are certified as coaches. A certified life coach is a coach who has completed training with an accredited coaching institution. These programs are taught by experienced coaches who have reached a Master Coach credential. At present, the International Coaching Federation (ICF) is the only body that oversees the coaching profession and has the authority to deem the quality of a program before granting accreditation. Coaches who have completed training are skilled in being client centered, asking probing questions to create self-exploration in a respectful and non-judgmental manner, and upholding professional and ethical standards set forth by the ICF (for example: complete client confidentiality) .
