Join us for the next session in 2024!
Course Dates:Monday, January 8—Friday, April 26, 2024
Mentorship Circles will meet nine Mondays, 4–5:30 pm ET, beginning February 5.*
Enrollment: To maintain the personalized and interactive peer learning experience of the Coaching Mentorship, this course enrolls a minimum of six and a maximum of 12 students. *The anticipated start date above will be confirmed when we reach our minimum enrollment. When registration is full, you will be put on a waiting list for the next Coaching Mentorship. In the event a course does not fill, we will notify you two weeks before the first scheduled meeting and you can enroll for the next iteration of the course.
The Coaching Mentorship program is the final step of the process to become certified as a Positive Psychology Coach. Once you’ve completed the required pre-requisite courses for certification, you’ll be able to register for our mentorship program to further develop your coaching fluency and confidence.
Please note: this course can only be taken as part of the Positive Psychology Coaching Certification Program.
Throughout the mentorship, you’ll be guided by experienced WBI faculty members within a mentoring circle—a small group of classmates who are also very close to completing their certification. You’ll learn new skills and material, share experiences and observations from your coaching sessions, demonstrate your skills, give and receive support and feedback, tackle coaching challenges together, and even help each other take the practical steps to establish thriving practices. Chances are, you and your mentoring circle will choose to stay together long after your certification is complete!
By this point in the certification program, you’ll have done a lot of Positive Psychology Coaching with your classmates. During the mentorship, you’ll apply your skills with real clients, working through full coaching engagements, observing your coaching style, stretching yourself, and gaining the fluency and confidence that come from real-world experience, feedback, and support. If you don’t have coaching clients yet, we will share strategies and support you as you brainstorm how to find them.
Following completion of the mentorship program, you will earn your Positive Psychology Coach Certification and a professional listing on Wholebeing Institute’s Coach Directory, where clients looking for great coaches will be able to read about your services and connect directly with you. You’ll also receive documentation of your certification, including digital images that you can use to help market your practice and convey your skills and expertise to clients.
This course offers 40 ICF CCE units for ICF credentialed coaches.
Requirements to receive ICF CCE units:
✓ Prepare and submit pre-work and actively participate in real-time in a small-group mentorship circle video calls with classmates and faculty mentors
✓ Coach at least two paying clients, at least four sessions per client, during the mentorship program, and discuss these coaching experiences in mentorship circles and with faculty mentors.
To see how these ICF CCE’s apply to your specific credentialing needs, please contact ICF directly.
The three-month mentorship program runs one to two times a year, subject to enrollment. The next iteration will begin with an orientation webinar on Monday, January 8, from 4:00–5:30 pm ET. We will then meet on Mondays, via video call, approximately three times per month. In addition to attending the live calls, you will complete nine peer-coaching sessions and coach two clients through a four-session engagement during the mentorship.

I enrolled in this course with the intention of growing professionally, as I transitioned form a career in teaching to a career in coaching, but ended up with so much more! From the first day, I felt a sense of connectedness and curiosity. Every lesson was packed with thought provoking content, and each assignment felt deeply meaningful, not only professionally, but personally as well. I highly recommend the peer coaching opportunities in this course, not only for the chance to practice, but also for the wonderful relationships that are formed. I don’t remember the last time I felt this excited about begin a student!
