If you are serious about developing your skill in coaching conversations, mentor coaching will add value fast. Your mentor coach will listen to you coaching and your learning and development will continue to grow from there. It is a safe space to make significant tweaks to your practice. Find out what the ICF says about mentor coaching.
Individual mentor coaching gives time to listen together to recordings of you coaching and to notice potential developments over time. In a mentor coaching group, you will be with up 3-6 other people using coaching and will have opportunities to coach each other and learn from coaching, observation and feedback. If you trained with 3D, this replicates the groups you were in – with one of the 3D team pausing and giving feedback. Our experience is that this is where people do their greatest development. The ICF requires you to have a minimum of three 1-1s so you will also get the benefit of listening with your mentor to recordings of you coaching.
New groups form regularly through the year as soon as there are at least 4 people ready to join . The mentor coaching group is a safe, supportive environment to practice the skills you have learned. Everyone who has mentor coaching with us also has free personal access to 11 hours of pre-recorded training on the 11 core coaching competencies. These normally sell for £99 inc VAT.
We have three mentor coaches – Claire Pedrick MCC, Peronel Barnes PCC and Clare Norman PCC. Your mentor needs to have at least the credential you are applying for. If accreditation is on your horizon, this will give you the required hours for the ICF. We work in our online Zoom Room unless it’s easy to arrange to meet face to face. In addition to the 7 hours of group work, before, mid-way and at the end of the programme you will have a virtual one to one you’re your mentor who will listen with you to a recording of you working with one of your people, and explore your strengths and areas to develop.
Our fees vary depending on the sector where you work and how much you charge people for coaching. Groups are the most affordable way of working and the cost covers 7 hours of group work and 3 hours of 1-1. We ask you to commit to attending all the sessions for your group because this is a commitment to the group as well as to the mentor coaching itself and so much of the learning emerges from the group. We have catch up sessions throughout the year. You are able to use this once and if there has been a serious family or medical emergency. Otherwise we will need to charge you £50 + VAT for each catch up.

“Just wanted to thank you for your great help and mentoring as I moved my career forward with the PCC….I did appreciate your approach, experience and wisdom, all of which were helpful for me. You were great to work with and I learned a lot and was able to transfer my learnings to my sessions of coaching, which is always a great thing. So thanks so much, I am very grateful to you!” David Hyatt PCC
