#ExperienceCoaching for yourself.

Coaching can be a transformational experience, but how do you find the right coach? To help you with this process, ICF developed the Credentialed Coach Finder, a free searchable directory with listings for thousands of qualified ICF Credentialed Coaches worldwide.

Why Choose an ICF Credentialed Coach?

Anyone can call themselves a coach. ICF Credentialed Coaches are professional coaches who have met stringent education and experience requirements, and have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the coaching competencies that set the standard in the profession.


In addition, ICF Credentialed Coaches adhere to strict ethical guidelines as part of ICF’s mission to protect and serve coaching consumers.


Reflect on your objectives for the coaching engagement. Being clear on your goals will enable you to find the coach best suited to help you reach them.


Search for coaches on the ICF Credentialed Coach Finder.


ICF recommends that you interview three coaches before you make a hiring decision. Ask each about his or her qualifications, experience and skills. Be sure to request at least two references.


Choose the coach that best fits your goals and start your coaching journey.
