What Do Our Graduates Say?

TICC builds a safe learning platform for participants to engage in trauma-informed learning. The course offers updated scientific knowledge and practical tools to support learners applying effective coaching techniques in any workplace, and work field; at the same time, the learning journey itself can become a trauma healing process in both personal and professional level. The facilitators and organizers are supportive to everyone. I enjoyed the learning process and meet other great professionals who have similar interests.

Keybi, TICC Graduate

All I can say is: Wow. I enrolled in this course at the recommendation of a friend, hoping to gain some wisdom, skills, and insight into coaching in general, and wanted a trauma-informed lens. This course (TICB and TICC) gave me that and then some! Not only was I learning, but I was doing some own inner healing. This was one of the most eye-opening, mind-blowing and incredible experiences of my life!

Marisa D, TICC Graduate

Every person experienced trauma, whether they’re aware of it or not. The TICC coaching model enables coaches to FULLY meet their clients where they are. Whether you want to work directly with clients who are aware of their trauma or you want to work with the general public or even in a business or corporate setting…trauma will find its way into the conversation when the space is safe. It’s imperative to know how to hold that space. TICC shows you how. I left this program fully confident that I can coach anyone on anything.

Trauma-Informed Coach Training FAQs

Trauma-informed coaches have training in client regulation, brain-body connection, behavioural reaction, different types of traumas, leading causes, and subsequent symptoms. They will have learned methods to help ‘regulate’ the nervous system, discard shame and guilt through powerful questions, and recognize and promote wellness as it starts to develop.

Trauma-informed coaches have learned the proper channels for referral and the growing relationship between clinical professionals, therapists, and coaches.

To become a trauma-informed coach, one must have authenticity, strong values, and beliefs that are not limiting to working in this area.

Our course teaches you how to be clear about setting boundaries between therapy and coaching. Trauma-informed coaches do not treat trauma and do not diagnose. However, they understand the nuances of working with clients who have experienced trauma.

Trauma-informed coaches help alleviate trauma symptoms in their clients by facilitating a safe space to create positive experiences, creating awareness of emotions, and supporting clients to envision and create the future they desire.

As trauma-informed coaches, we acknowledge the past where it is, honour the person for who they are, and focus on bringing awareness to the present and the positive potential of the future, including post-traumatic growth.

The goal of trauma-informed coaching is to support the client to move towards mastery of their situation and practice new ways of being while using learned tools and skillsets. You help them move towards creating a calm, peaceful and enriched life for themselves

The intensity of our training to become a trauma-informed coach can stimulate difficult emotional situations in some students. This training was developed to train coaches and is not a substitute for personal therapy.
