Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches work with clients in many areas, including business, career, finance, health, transitions and relationships.

Coaching credentials offered by ICF benefit both coaches and consumers. By acquiring an ICF Credential, consumers know that a coach is credible and has proper coaching experience. ICF- Credentialed coaches meet the highest professional standards and adhere to a strong code of ethics. ICF-Credentialed coaches must meet several requirements including obtaining a minimum number of coaching experience and coach-specific training hours. In addition, coaches who apply for a credential are assessed in their coaching standards and competence both orally and in writing by experienced, independent assessors under strict examination conditions.

Bailey, who also serves as president of the Rotary Club of Flagler Beach, received her initial training at the Christian Coach Institute in 2012, where she works today, and was certified with the school’s Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC) credential in 2013.

ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

Coaching is a distinct service and differs greatly from therapy, consulting, mentoring or training.
