In 2020, we are offering our Professional Consciousness Coaching Training (CCT) again, in English as well as in Dutch. Our coach training has had the highest accreditation (ACTP) by the ICF (International Coach Federation) for over 10 years.
Our English training takes place in Belgium and will be lead by Marc Steinberg himself, founder and creator of Creative Consciousness.
Our Dutch training takes place in the Netherlands and will be lead by Charles Ruiters.
For those who are already accredited as a coach, it is interesting to know that you can follow our training for CCEU points. Each 4 day module equals 32 points.
What is coaching, what would you get out of a coach training and what sets us apart from other coach trainings?
Coaching is essentially partnering up with another in a process that inspires and empowers them to live their potential. Be that other a coaching client, a colleague, a friend, a family member, a customer, or a total stranger. Coaching can be made into a profession, but what it really is, is simply a way of life.
What you get out of a Consciousness Coaching® training is manifold:
We train you in your coaching and communication skills such that you are able to conduct coaching sessions according to the International Coach Federation (ICF) highest standards. This will make you stand out from many others in the field.
You will learn to use the tools, skills and awareness creations that are specific to Consciousness Coaching®. You learn how to coach not on surface level where the client's issues are playing out, but on the root level: who the client is being. This is where the magic happens. Beause it is when WE transform, our reality automatically follows. Remember: as within, so without.
Not only do we focus on your "coach DOING", we will dive deep into your "coach BEING", as this is where the gold is waiting to be dug up. It is who you ARE as a coach that makes all the difference. In other words: expect to enter a process of personal transformation that will ripple out to all areas in your life. Because the more you become who YOU authentically are, the more you can be the source of this for others.
Taking part in our coach training program will inevitably change your life.
It has something of a snowball effect: who you grow into as a coach will impact your personal life, which will in turn keep accelerating who you are as a coach, etc.
It is a beautiful journey that you are about to embark on...
What does the training programme look like?
The programme consists of 4 training modules of 4 consecutive days each, from Thursday to Sunday.
Your training journey starts with our foundation training Conscious Living 1, which familiarizes you with the core elements of Creative Consciousness and Consciousness Coaching. The Conscious Living 1 is a process of 4 days that takes you through a personal transformational process, as we believe that in order to become a coach, you must first have done the necessary work yourself
Next, you continue with the 3 Consciousness Coaching modules. We go deeper and deeper into how you relate to another, and we teach you to communicate in a way that empowers both you and the other unconditionally. In between the modules, you have ample time to practise what you learnt, in your direct environment as well as with customers that you can start to work with from then onwards.
You have the possibility to take our Conscious Living 1 training at another time, in between the coaching modules. Ideally, you step in before, but it's not an obstacle to your process if you don't. As long as you have taken Conscious Living 1 before you step into the final coaching module.
What about after the training?
Having completed the final 4 day module, you are ready to register for the coaching exam, if you choose to. This is optional, so that means it is not included in the training programme. You can also start to work as a coach rightaway, and you can choose to apply all that you learnt in the area in which you are (professionally) active. Everyone will get lots of value out of this training: coaches, managers, team leaders, teachers, parents... anyone who has an interest in personal development.
Do you want that ICF certification as a coach, that sets you even more apart? Then choose to buy our exam package. This is not an additional training programme. What it consists of is a mentoring track: you will get allocated a mentor coach, who will conduct 6 observed coaching sessions with you. Your mentor coach will observe your sessions with real clients and provide in-depth feedback to support you in getting your coach competences to the next level. You will also engage in extensive peer coaching practice as well as self-study and integration of everything that you have learned. In this process you are also encouraged to work with real clients.
To enter the exam, you are required to:
✓ Give at least 8 sessions to paying clients ✓ Give at least 8 sessions to your peers ✓ Give at least 3 peer observed coaching sessions ✓ Receive at least 8 sessions as a client ✓ Complete 6 observed coaching sessions with your mentor coach ✓ Complete at least 3 group mentor coaching sessions
Normally, the process of exam preparation itself takes at least 2 months – it can be a bit less or more, depending on your individual learning style, schedule, and pace.
Once you have accomplished all practice hours needed to enter the exam, you submit your documents and participate in the written exam. It is a 50 minutes test containing multiple choice questions that cover theory, core notions of coaching, and key Consciousness Coaching® distinctions.
If you successfully pass the written part, you are invited for the oral part, where you demonstrate your coaching skills in a coaching session scenario, with a role-playing client. You will receive immediate feedback and, if you pass, will be awarded the Diploma in Professional Consciousness Coaching®.
With this diploma, you are able to professionally practice coaching in any field of your choice, be that life coaching, business coaching, or any other coaching area, and are eligible to become a member of ICF and apply for their credentials.

When you choose this option, you have the additional advantage that you can use our Valuation After Experience system. You can read more about that on our website in the FAQ section for Conscious Living 1.
Your investiment for the 12 days of coach training is then € 4.500 (incl VAT).
