Vancouver Coaching Schools

Vancouver Life Coaching Schools

The Vancouver Life Coaching Community is an active group of people who are both officially registered through the ICF or independent coaches working as private consultants. The Vancouver division of the International Coach Federation (ICF) has more than 200 registered members and there are at least another 200 non-member coaches operating in the Lower Mainland as independents.

Most of these coaches register on coaching directories and on the ICF web page.

Some of these coaches have trained as Life Coaches at Vancouver Area Schools including; Coaches Training Institute, Erickson College and Royal Roads University.

A popular training option for Vancouver Life Coaches is Coaches Training Institute (CTI), the largest coaching school in the world. The local branch of this coaching power-house offers a five class program that enlightens students to the benefits of co-active coaching. Co-active coach training has the student first introspectively focus on their strengths, weaknesses and abilities. Then through a thorough understanding of self, trained coaches can actively encourage others to take positive steps in their lives.

CTI and ICF are interrelated organizations with many CTI-trained coaches becoming members of the ICF. As a result, CTI principles and coaching guidelines often find their way into the ICF coaching framework. This is no different in the Vancouver Chapter of the ICF where many board and chapter members were trained at CTI.

CTI has a campus in Metro Vancouver where they teach the 5-Class Co-Active Coaching course. The course runs twice annually beginning in September and March. Each of the 5 sessions (Fundamentals, Fulfillment, Balance, Process and In the Bones) is taught by a qualified instructor. Sessions are once per month in consecutive months. You can get full program details by calling CTI at: 1-800-691-6008.

Erickson College is located in the heart of Vancouver, near False Creek. Erickson offers a variety of classes including leadership development, advanced human dynamics and change technologies, creativity, accelerated learning, and life coaching. Classes are also offered online for those not able to make to the campus. Erickson also offers classes at satellite classes around the world in such countries as America, China, United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, and Turkey. Contact Erickson College at 1-800-665-6949.

Royal Roads University, located near Victoria on Vancouver Island, offers an executive coach training course in association with the ICF. The course is aimed at more senior level managers and those that are involved with coaching at the executive level. Most entrants to the program will have a minimum of 3 to 5 years related experience in the business field. Graduates of Royal Road's Executive Coaching Certification can apply for advanced standing for Royal Road's MBA or Certified Human Resources Professional programs. Intakes are generally every September and January with the occasional April start. For more information contact Royal Roads at 1-800-788-8028

What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching involves providing support and positive feedback to others while offering occasional advice to help them recognize ways in which they can improve the effectiveness of their lives. Coaching focuses on making positive strides forward and is future-focused, as compared to therapy which dwells on people's pasts. Coaching can be conducted over the phone, online or in person. To find a Vancouver Life Coach you can contact the local ICF at 604-948-805.
