Welcome to the UK ICF website


The International Coach Federation is the global support network for professional coaches. Whether it’s Life Coaching, Executive Coaching, Leadership or other skilled Coaching, ICF leads the global community in advancing the profession.

Founded in 1995 and today with over 25000 members, our purpose is to advance the art science and practice of professional coaching. We envision a future in which coaching will be an integral part of society and ICF members will represent the highest quality in professional coaching. ICF is working toward this goal by setting high standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches.

The UK Chapter is the global community for professional coaches in the UK and we continue to grow in terms of membership and value to our members. Member benefits include credentialing, personal development through webinars and live events and the coach referral programme.

  • A reflection of the values, tone and style of the UK ICF and its members and volunteers. We are friendly, creative, curious, inclusive, challenging and rigorous.

Over time we will continue evolving the website to be the UK home for all who passionately believe in the power of coaching, Let us know what you like and what you need.  We will listen to you and wherever and whenever possible provide the resources you want and need.
