"The programme I attended with Lilith was very insightful and stretched all my boundaries, in a good way.
It was a great combination of intuitive and practical, really enabled me, and my colleagues, to grew and explore areas that you can’t do day to day. Lilith was a delight, she is extremely authentic and allows and respects your own presence to really explore areas useful and valuable as a coach and professional (and person).
I would highly recommend this programme." Hilary Dunstan, Senior Consultant, Executive Coach and Facilitator, Fastlane Results Ltd, ACTP Intuitive Coach Alumna
"I had a fabulously engaging time as a student with Lilith. She created a powerful co-active space which allowed me to grow as a coach. I can whole heartedly recommend including Lilith in your development on your coaching journey." Ian Pitchford, Marketing Director and Coach, A Mind 4 Adventure, ACTP Intuitive Coach Alumnus
"I found the Intuitive Coach Advance course so much more than a training course. The information and experiences provided by Lilith, along with the group interaction and coaching experiences have been deeply transformative for me as an individual as well as a coach. Lilith makes experiential learning fit with the ICF markers and competencies in such a way that you fully experience their benefits but also learn how to work effectively within them as a coach. Lilith was incredibly welcoming, open and responsive to the needs of the whole group and managed the structure and timings of the day wonderfully and very naturally. The venue was calm and peaceful providing an opportunity to connect with the natural world and enhance our coaching skills and personal experiences even further. My time of the course will stay with me forever and I can't recommend it highly enough."
Jennifer Burke, Coach, ACTP Intuitive Coach Alumna
Foundations of ICF PCC Development Process in Intuitive Coach Advance
The student’s journey towards the essence of the client-coach dynamic is the foundation of the development process in Intuitive Coach Advance: inward, into the depths of the client and into the coaching relationship co-created by the client and the coach.
WHAT FOR? The mission of coaching at the professional coaching level is the transformation of the “WHO?” of the client as a whole, resourceful and naturally creative person. Where the applicants will meet the accreditation criteria at the ACC (Associate Certified Coach) level focusing on supporting the client mostly in the “WHAT?”, i.e:
Finding a one-off solution to the agreed goal and
Using coaching tools
The evaluation at ICF PCC level expands to:
Coach’s focus on the “WHO?” of the client as a holistic human being: supporting the client in personal transformation and broadening awareness, the client’s sustainable evolution rather then a one-off solution
Quality of a spontaneous, intuitive coaching conversation, the quality of the coach’s connection with a client, partnership and neutrality of the coach, honouring and holding the client responsible for their life and their development whilst staying engaged and active
The coach’s presence 'here and now', self-acceptance and self-awareness, the courage to take risks and ”not knowing”
Attachment to the structure of a coaching tool instead of hearing and following the client at any moment "here and now” may result in failing the exam.
To get there the students journey to the essence of self and their lives, their identity and vocation, their natural working style and the profile of the client they naturally serve. Thriving in this program requires a high level of openness, readiness to work at a level of depth, essence, intuition and electromagnetic field.
All group training modules consist of: 80% experience, experimentation, reflection and broadening awareness, observation and feedback, 20% of theory.
We have observed how important both ‘observed sessions’ and individual learning in one-to-one contact with the teacher, are for the student’s development. Therefore the tuition for the program includes 3 one-to-one ‘observed coaching sessions’ * and 3 one-to-one ‘mentor coaching sessions’ *.
The entire program will be concluded with an oral, practical exam conducted by independent examiners who are approved ICF Assessors for PCC accreditation. Passing this exam is honoured by the ICF as passing the PCC Performance Evaluation in the ACTP Path of accreditation.
