Mentor Coaching

‘Technique is for a coach what a text is for an actor: they both have to forget it in order to be present.’       Luc De Belloy


Mentor Coaching provides an additional and required learning/development track that is designed to support your individual growth and coaching presence.

"Mentor Coaching for an ICF Credential consists of coaching and feedback in a collaborative, appreciative and dialogued process based on an observed or recorded coaching session to increase the coach’s capability in coaching, in alignment with the ICF Core Competencies."

As an ICF Accredited Credentialing Assessor, an ICF registered Mentor Coach and an ICF Master Certified Coach I am pleased to offer you four different types of mentoring programs:

1. Small group for 7 hours follow by 3 hours of one to one mentoring

2. 10 hours of one to one mentoring

3. Bring your recorded sessions for feedback

4. Small group mentoring for 4 hours

All programs can be conducted either face to face or virtually using the Zoom Platform.  See the brochure at the bottom of the page for more detailed information



This mentor coaching process is rigorous and gets right to the point. The intended learning outcomes for you are as follows:

  • To integrate the ICF core competencies into your coaching and hone your coaching skills and competence
  • To develop a thorough understanding of the 11 ICF Core Competencies  and PCC Markers by unpacking and experiencing them during live supervised coaching sessions
  • To develop an understanding of the ICF ACC & PCC minimum skill requirements
  • To prepare, at your own pace to become certified
  • To receive constructive feedback around the core competencies & PCC markers commensurate to that which would be received from an ICF reviewer 
  • To experience feedback in a safe and supportive environment
  • To become aligned with the ICF professional standards and ethics

Mentoring is an integral part of a coach's overall professional development and a vital part to the ICF Credentialing process

Tracy’s mentoring assisted me to fine tune my coaching skills and better understand the PCC requirements of ICF. By working with Tracy, I was able to correct some old habits, polish some good practices, and pick up some new skills. I would recommend Tracy to anyone wanting to take their coaching skills to the next level.

Tracy has been mentoring me in parallel to my coaching masters degree. Her advice has been instrumental in helping me translate my learning into practical coaching. Her program has enabled me to understand better my development areas and to bring to life the ICF competences. Under her guidance I have started to make the shift to true developmental coaching and am now ready to apply for my first coaching certification. I would highly recommend Tracy as a mentor as her constructive and highly detailed approach has elevated my coaching to another level and given me the confidence in my coaching practice.

First and foremost, Tracy is incredible. I have found huge value in her delivery of theory in a ‘practical and realistic’ manner. For example, tips on words and phrases and delivery tone for coaching sessions was invaluable. Her ability to find simple language to describe potentially complex theory is hugely beneficial.

Rebecca Rynehart, Sydney Uni Coaching Masters Graduate 2018 

I would like to thank Tracy for mentoring a group of us at ACAP. Firstly I would have to commend her capacity to manage a group of our size and to manage that ever so calmly. I like the way she took us through the competencies and explained them in detail, drawing on examples to illustrate them further. Finally, in our one on one session where she provided me with feedback on my recording of a coaching session, she was both supportive and challenging. That is, she provided me with feedback that highlighted my strengths as well as feedback that helped me see where growth is possible. Thank you Tracy.

Despina Safinkos ACAP June 2016

Tracy has been an incredible mentor coach. She is sharp, honest, supportive and very generous with her knowledge and resources. Her deep listening and questioning allowed me to look honestly at myself and recognize the mistakes that I was making. Her support and guidance helped me to come up with solutions to some challenging client situations. I learned a great deal by working with Tracy, who was always willing to share countless tips, ideas, questions, perspective, and material with me. Working with Tracy has given me more confidence as a coach and a clearer awareness of my approach to coaching. I recommend her to anyone who wants to grow or make significant changes in their lives, both personally and professionally 

Janette Sassoon Jerusalem

Tracy has a gift for mentor coaching that I am honored to have experienced. Her teaching background makes her not only incredibly attentive, but also a treasure chest of tips, insights, and recommendations. Thanks to her gentle, but challenging approach, I grow more professional as a coach during every encounter with Tracy. If you’re looking for a mentor who’ll put you on the fast track to becoming a masterful coach, you couldn’t choose a better mentor than Tracy Tresidder. Thanks a bunch.  

Venus Taylor New York

Tracy has been a phenomenal catalyst in helping me to understand myself better, including the ways in which I block my own progress and the strengths and resources I possess to help me move past those blocks toward my own goals and outcomes. She pushed me to be really honest and clear with myself, which is just what I wanted. She was incredibly generous with her knowledge and resources and was a lovely model of the kind of coach I aspire to be. I’d recommend her – and use her again – in a heartbeat.
