Trauma Informed Coaching Certification

The Trauma informed Coaching Certification prepares trainees to become health and wellness coaches and ICF ACC Credentialed Coaches (Exam required).  One Certification that prepares coaches for both credentials.

Why is trauma informed coaching important? Worldwide, 70% of all people have or will experience at least one traumatic event in their life.  A traumatic experience shatters an individuals’ beliefs in themselves, others or society. Healing from a traumatic experience requires a reconfiguration of the shattered belief systems into a new narrative for their life with new goals.

Trauma comes from a single catastrophic event or a series of less dramatic stressors such as work mismatch, prejudice, unclear expectations, impossible workloads, emotionally draining interactions with difficult people or feelings of insecurity.

Mentor Agility’s trauma informed coaches are trained with specific skill sets for behavior change helping clients reconfigure their self narrative, set goals, increase motivation, generate accountability and increase performance. Coaches learn how to work with trauma, burnout, and stress to alleviate distress and help clients make better choices. By assisting clients in adjusting everyday behaviors to support resiliency, overall health and wellness, improve habits, reduce stress and create a new story that excites and motivates the client, coaches can help clients move into a growth mindset and get their lives on a track with creativity and excitement.

What makes our coaching approach distinctive from other programs is our application of the coaching core competencies through the lens of storytelling. Trainees will learn how to use the step-by-step coaching process using the playful and imaginative Hero’s Journey® Change Model designed to ignite clients intrinsic motivation.
