Mentor Coaching

What is mentor coaching?

Mentor Coaching consists of coaching, feedback and suggested targets and is delivered in a collaborative style consisting of a two way dialogue between the mentor and coach.   A Mentor Coach is somebody who has acquired the relevant coach education, credentials and who has a proven track record of success.  For credentialing, the purpose is to increase the coach’s capabilities specifically related to core competencies, markers or frameworks.  Ultimately, a mentor coach’s aim is to help other coaches grow so that they can, in turn, be the best coach possible for their clients.

I highly recommend Caroline as a coach mentor. She has supported me to achieve my ICF MCC certification but our sessions have given me so much more. She builds confidence, helps you connect deeply to your purpose and is extremely knowledgeable to all areas of coaching. We also laughed a lot, which helped me let go of needing to “get it right.” I was able to find my way and flow into my very best practice. As I said, Caroline is fabulous and if you are looking for a mentor coach then you have found a great one here. 🙂Karen Muir, MCC, MEd, Leadership Coach, UK


What is the purpose of mentor coaching?

Mentoring coaching provides: 

  • Professional assistance to help coaches achieve and demonstrate the levels of competency and capability demanded by the desired ICF credentialing level.
  • A space for reflection and professional development opportunities.
  • Practical support with the application or renewal process.


The bespoke one-to-one mentor coaching sessions involve an individualised process which includes the following steps:

  • The coach will be asked to share a recorded session of between 30 – 60 minutes in advance.
  • The mentor will listen to the recording prior to the mentoring session in order to prepare notes, targets and points for discussion.
  • The coach will be asked to listen to their recording again and map their performance against the ICF Core Competencies.
  • The coach and mentor will meet together on zoom to discuss the coaching session and agree targets for improvement.  
  • The coach and mentor will partner in designing a way of checking on progress.

Caroline was one of my Mentor Coaches for my MCC credential as part of the CoachME faculty. It was an amazing journey with her, I felt comfortable, relaxed and so much more confident about submitting my MCC application. Her comments and targets were exactly the same as those from the ICF assessor! I am so grateful to have had Caroline as one of my mentor coaches.  Thank you for the amazing sessions!Anita Seman, MCC, Jakarta, Indonesia


What is required by the ICF credentialing process in relation to mentor coaching?

For credentialing purposes, ICF requires that Mentor Coaching should take place over at least three months which allows time for the coach to implement their targets for improvement.  This can be split into seven group mentoring sessions and three or more one-to-one sessions.

Specific information from ICF can be found here.


Working with Caroline has been extremely valuable for me. She pinpointed the areas of my coaching where I could improve in order to trigger even more reflection and change in the clients. What I liked a lot working with Caroline is that she not only helped me focus on areas where I could make a bigger difference by adjusting my approach; she also helped me recognize my strengths and how I should continue using them to make a strong impact with my clients. Caroline was really a great sounding board for me, she challenged me when it was necessary, and her mentoring definitely helped me make significant progress in my coaching sessions with clients. She is also a fun person to work with, she really acts as a servant of her mentees. I would recommend working with Caroline without hesitation.Pascal Maygnan, ACC, Experienced International CFO, Germany and France
