What is neuroplasticity?
Neuroplasticity, or brain plasticity, is a phenomenon that was unknown to neuroscientists up until a couple of decades ago. It means the brain grows and changes throughout life, because, as neuropsychologist, Donald Hebb taught, neurons that fire together, wire together. Previously, it was thought that very little growth and change was available to adults. But now we know the brain changes itself from moment to moment and that what we choose to focus on can be used to change the brain for good. Our clients can become more resilient, happier, and more successful when they benefit from coach-assisted neuroplasticity.
What is neuroscience coaching?
Neuroscience coaches use tools, exercises, and interventions that have been identified by research into neuroscience, positive psychology and related fields, such as emotional intelligence, to help their clients achieve greater happiness, well-being, and success. They take research into neuroscience and translate it into effective tools for improving people’s lives, careers, and businesses. Read about neuroplasticity coaching on the Coaching Blog.
School of Coaching Mastery integrates neuroscience discoveries, tools, and interventions throughout its coach training curriculum. The Certified Neuroplasticity CoachTM Program is for coaches who want advanced training and experience in the art and science of neuroplasticity coaching.

How is this program different from other neuroscience training programs?
- This isn't just a coach-training program, nor is it just a neuroscience program; it's comprehensive coach training, based on neuroplasticity research, tools, and principles that includes advanced approaches to coaching.
- Some neuroscience training programs will introduce you to coaching; this program offers beginner-to-master-level coach training based on neuroscience.
- Certification is the gold-standard in coaching credentials. Successful completion of this program will give you the Certified Neuroscience CoachTM credential.

We will apply to the ICF for ACSTH a full 125 ICF training hours for the Certified Neuroscience Coach Program, which when approved, will qualify graduates to apply for ICF ACC or PCC credentials without having to take the arduous portfolio route. So far, the ICF has approved everything we've ever applied for and we're committed to working with them to get this program accredited. We expect the first graduates of the CNC program to get 125 ICF credits.
