Find the Best Coach for You

Looking to become a better leader, improve your relationships, focus on health and wellbeing, get through a life transition, or just get unstuck? 

Our coaches have done it all. They bring compassion, empathy, authenticity, and knowledge to help you move forward, build resilience, and achieve your goals.

Our specialities range from CEO and executive coaching to yoga-inspired and equine-assisted coaching. All MMS NorCal coaches are either certified ICF coaches or graduates of our ICF certified training, the gold-standard of coaching.

Become a Coach

Why become a Coach? Because coaching transforms an individual’s professional and personal life. By becoming a coach, you can support your own growth, and become a strong leader and an agent of change. 

“Love yourself, trust your choices and everything is possible.”

– Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott
Founder of the MMS Institute

The MMS Institute is the birthplace of coaching: we’re the original and oldest coach training in the world, founded in 1974 by the Mother of Coaching, Dr. Cherie Carter-Scott.

What began in San Francisco over forty years ago has grown into a global organization, training coaches to ICF (International Coach Federation) standards; using the effective and powerful MMS methods.

We’re proud to provide a fully credentialed coach training, which prepares our students for the rigorous ICF credentialing exam. An ICF coach certification provides a path to leadership in the workplace, and deep personal growth comes from learning the coaching method. We offer both. Our trainings not only teach you the skills to coach, but provide the opportunity to be coached and receive live feedback throughout the process.

All courses are taught by ICF credentialed trainers.
