Once you have completed at least 6 sessions with your Peer Coach and completed the Coaching Skills classes you will be ready to be a Peer Coach. This is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your learning by "doing".
Please know that most Peer Coaches are nervous before they get started. Keep in mind this is a "Learning environment" not a "Knowing environment" and Peer Coaching is a safe way for you to practice and enhance your skills.
SESSION REQUIREMENTS FOR PEER COACHING
NB: You must enter at least 4 different coaching relationships during your peer coach training with ICA. This means being a client for two different coaches, and being a coach for two different clients. You must also complete a minimum of 3 sessions with each.
One coaching hour is 60 minutes of actual coaching, not consulting, counselling, therapy etc.
A coaching session of less than 60 minutes counts as a partial hour.
For example, 30 minutes is equal to 0.5 coaching hours. Partial coaching sessions of less than 30 minutes may not be counted.
A Group Coaching Session for groups of 15 or fewer counts using the above guidelines.
The actual Coaching time is counted and not multiplied by the number of participants.
