by International Regulator of Coaching and Mentoring CIC

Now, more than ever in our personal history, everyone needs the support of the right Wellness and/or Holistic Coach. As this pandemic continues, the IRCM CIC hears from coaching and mentoring industry Consumers, through the press and media outlets, and from a number of other channels about health and wellness challenges. People on the frontline are facing unprecedented working environments – 14+ hours a day with more people dying in the wards than ever before. People on the frontline not being recognised for the support they provide e.g. the shop assistants and delivery staff. People being ‘trapped’ at home and having to work in an environment that used to be their ‘get away from it all’ place. Parents learning to become teachers to support their own children’s growth and development. Husbands/Wives understanding what the other goes through every day to support their household. Not being able to live a ‘normal’ life and the impact of no exercise, while eating too much. This pandemic gives each Coach whose niche market is health, wellness, and fitness; and each Mentor with the personally gained experience; the opportunity to provide a needed level of support.

Coaching and Mentoring puts each Coach and Mentor in a very privileged position. It is a position from which the correctly selected Coach or Mentor can enrich the lives of their client, but where the wrong coach or mentor is selected, could cause harm.

Are you aware that Consumers have the best kept secret in the coaching and mentoring industry working for them? If not, let us introduce ourselves to you. The International Regulator of Coaching and Mentoring CIC (aka IRCM CIC) is the UK Government approved regulator for the protection of the Consumers who benefit from the services of Coaches and Mentors. The IRCM CIC provides support to all Consumers and not only those who benefit from coaching and mentoring but also their learning from Education/Training organisations, and the support and ongoing guidance from Professional Bodies, Associations, etc.
