“Even after fifteen years of ongoing Gestalt training as a psychotherapist, the Competency Development Program for Coach Certification was the most powerful learning experience I have ever had. It not only taught me about coaching, but it significantly bumped up my skills as a therapist. Both the faculty and my colleagues were incredible – engaged, energetic, and effective. The learning and support came from every quarter. I am immensely grateful to all those who made this program possible.”
