What is Creativity Coaching?

Creativity coaching is similar to life coaching, but it focuses on the challenges faced by creatives in all art disciplines, such as overcoming creative blocks, getting creative work done, and navigating the art marketplaces. Creativity coaches have helped thousands of artists, writers, inventors, entrepreneurs, and other creative souls achieve their goals and realize their dreams. This form of coaching is integral to those seeking guidance in their creative endeavors and is central to the offerings of any creative coaching academy.

Will This Qualify You As an International Accredited Coach?

At Noble Manhattan Coaching we recognise that anyone can call themselves a coach. This programme is designed as additional training for those who are already coaches, or those who plan to coach informally or to self-coach.

It is accredited by the – International Authority for Professional Coaching and Mentoring (IAPC&M) but, on its own, it is not deemed sufficient to achieve personal accreditation as a coach by one of the independent coaching organisations, such as the IAPC&M, ICF, AoC, EMCC etc.

Both of our programs with Dr. Eric Maisel, our Creativity Coach Certificate Program and our Existential Wellness Coach Certificate Program, provide certification upon completion of training.

Certification is a significant milestone, valuable credential, and a marker of real accomplishment. We are proud to share that we are authorized as an official training center by the – IAPC&M ( International Authority for Professional Coaching And Mentoring ) are authorized to issue international certificates.

We see certification as a step toward independent coaching practice, where certified coaches increase their ability to coach independently by acquiring additional core competencies and by perhaps furthering their professional careers by garnering accreditation through organizations like the ICF (International Coach Federation), the IAPC&M (International Association for Professional Coaches and Mentors), or some similar organization that accredits practitioner coaches, senior coaches, and master coaches.

Certification is a real milestone and a valuable credential, and we believe it is a significant step on the career path of professional, independent coaching.
