Mentoring for your ICF credential
Duncan Coppock MCC

Coaches successfully navigating their ICF credentials frequently find that

Coaching Credentialing can be:

A real sense of accomplishment

A way to increase your marketability and earnings

A professional milestone and confidence boost

A commitment of time and study

Personally and professionally challenging

Enjoyable and satisfying

Frustrating and difficult

Confusing to understand the requirements

All of the above


This can become even more pronounced when you are an experienced coach applying for your PCC or MCC qualification. You may be struggling to understand the application criteria, how you will be assessed, what is and is not acceptable at each level, and what recordings you should choose to submit.

As an active assessor for the ICF at PCC and MCC levels I understand the requirements and processes and partner with coaches to make your credentialing process more enjoyable and successful. This includes providing additional resources, models and perspectives on the core competencies.

If you are applying for your ACC credential then the requirements are less demanding, but you will still need to pay attention to all the competencies, especially creating the coaching agreement. You will also need to send in a recording that clearly demonstrates your understanding and application of the competencies.

We can work together individually or in a combination of individual and group sessions.


"Duncan has worked with our Team of coaches at Talking Talent providing group mentoring, as well as with me individually on a one to one basis. Duncan was excellent at managing mentoring with a group of colleagues who work regularly together. He created an extremely safe environment in which people felt comfortable being observed coaching as well as receiving feedback for development. Duncan is always calm and brings really valuable insights and stretch to everyone. I know the Coaches have all valued the mentoring sessions and have felt they have helped significantly with their development.

On a personal level I have benefited from being part of the group but also have got significant benefit from working with Duncan one to one. Duncan has always been supportive yet challenging. He has prompted me when my motivation has dipped and really helped me to understand the areas I needed to focus on to get my MCC. There were highs and lows but I always felt able to tackle them with the support of Duncan. I am pleased to say that I attained my MCC with constructive feedback on my recordings from Duncan.

I found Duncan as a PCC coach looking to realise MCC. I had made one application for MCC, which had failed. One of the qualities of Duncan is that despite his great experience and expertise in bringing to life coaching competencies, he works with you very holistically. He is a man who never neglects the whole of who you are - and so can help you to see beyond your own self-imposed limitation and blindness. I will always be a grateful for his authenticity and conversations that we had when I was doubting my ability to be an MCC. He shared some truths not only about how he saw me but also about the wider ICF system which played a remarkable role of taking the pressure off me to perform. I did realise my MCC and one person I will acknowledge who played a important role in helping me over the final and yet essential hurdle is Duncan. I have recommended Duncan to other coaches seeking to grow with a back drop of competencies and they like me have reported back upon his expertise and many qualities, I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wishing to succeed within the ICF credentialing experience. He is remarkable man and a valuable guide.
