Are you preparing to apply to the International Coaching Federation (ICF) for your ACC or PCC credential?
Or maybe you are renewing your ACC credential and need the required 10 hours of mentor coaching?
Or do you want to deepen your impact and sharpen your coaching skills?
One-to-One, or Group?
When coaches ask me about how mentor coaching works, I start by explaining the benefits of one-to-one and group mentor coaching – because there are benefits to both.
The assistance you receive from your mentor coach is always aimed at helping you achieve/ demonstrate the levels of coaching competency and capability demanded by the desired ICF credential level.
Group mentor coaching is about you deepening your understanding and application of the ICF Core Competencies. This happens in a collaborative and supportive environment, where you can observe, share, learn and receive feedback from your mentor and other coaches.
The ICF requires that at least 3 of your 10 mentoring hours be one-to-one, then up to 7 of the remaining hours can be group mentoring.
One-to-one mentor coaching is about you receiving feedback on your capability against the ICF Core Competencies and bringing the blind spots in your coaching to light. In one-to-one mentor coaching your mentor observes/listens, assesses and provides feedback.
In one-to-one mentor coaching I work with you to focus on core competency development. I do this by providing oral and written feedback on your recorded coaching sessions. The feedback is designed to recognise your strengths as well as potential growth areas so we can discuss what you are doing well, and what needs to be done to develop a deeper level of mastery in coaching.
Please get in touch if you would like information about my approach to one-to-one mentor coaching.
I work as an Executive and Leadership Coach with several Australian and global coaching organisations and I am a member of many coaching panels, working with clients at all levels and from a range of backgrounds.
I am involved in the delivery of coach training programs and I am regularly engaged as a mentor coach for leaders who have completed in-house ‘leader as coach’ training. This experience has developed and deepened my application of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) Core Competencies.
I am a Past-President of the ICF’s South Australia Branch and have held other roles on the SA Leadership Team, providing me with a thorough knowledge of ICF credentialing requirements and procedures. I have been an ICF member since 2012 and a credentialed member since 2014. You can read more about my experience and qualifications on my website.

“I really appreciated your encouraging approach – having someone listen to my recordings for the first time felt like a pretty big step. You acknowledged this and I felt very safe and comfortable sharing with you. I also appreciated how detailed your feedback was (often including specific phrases) and that you provided practical suggestions for alternative question phrasing/lines of inquiry.”
