ICF Credentialed coaches who have completed a program with Elaine on psychotherapy with HSPs
According to ICF: “The primary focus of coaching is on creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals in one’s work or personal life.”
That could be achieving career goals, communicating within relationships, clearing distractions or building stronger boundaries – all taking your sensitive trait into consideration.
If you are seeking help for trauma, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, deeper relationship issues, or deep emotional wounds due to a painful past, please see our therapist section.

All the coaches in this list are ICF (International Coach Federation) credentialed or trained by an ICF-accredited school, and have passed a test on the information in the DVD: A Live Seminar oOn Psychotherapy and The Highly Sensitive Person, or the book, Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person.
Please note: Elaine does not know personally most of the people on this list and being on it does not mean she recommends them beyond the requirements of this list.
Coaching is a relatively new field. Unlike licensed professions, coaching is not yet government regulated. But coaching is regulated by its professional organization, which requires over 125 hours of training and over 750 hours of coaching experience, and adheres to a rigorous set of ethics. We chose to limit our coaches to those associated with the ICF because we found that some coaches receive very little training, sometimes 16 hours or less before they are certified—that is, the main “requirement” is the fee. In contrast, licensed psychotherapists typically intern for 3000 hours, at great expense. But coaching is quite different and can be very helpful.
