Meta-Coaching ®

Co-developed by coach and Equilibrio founder Michelle Duval, and cognitive behavioural psychologist Dr. L. Michael Hall in 2002, meta-coaching is an advanced coaching methodology for facilitating systemic change and personal and professional development in individuals, teams and organisations (Hall and Duval, 2004).

Meta-Coaches work with an individual or team’s mind, body and emotion system conversationally and co-creatively rather than with the procedural linear approach of basic coaching techniques (Linder-perlz, 2010).

Grounded in the cognitive sciences, systems theory, self-actualising and positive psychologies, meta-coaching is an NLP and Neuro-Semantic coaching system for working at ‘higher’ levels of consciousness required for developmental and transformational change and learning.

The international Meta-Coach Foundation (MCF) have a rigorous process for credentialing and benchmarking meta-coach students against 26 coaching skills and 7 coaching psychology models, exceeding the International Coach Federation’s (ICF) 2006 competencies (Linder-pelz, 2010) and assessment process.

Professional coaches across 40 different countries have achieved the MCF Credential of Associate Certified Meta-Coach (ACMC) and are leading change across: organisations, sport, leadership, business, parenting, bullying, spirituality, health, wealth and relationships.

Equilibrio coaches have achieved the ACMC credential and receive ongoing coaching supervision from Michelle Duval while also seeking ongoing professional development.

Meta-coaching programs are custom designed for each individual, team or organisation after an initial consultation or Introductory Coaching Session.

Meta-coaching programs range from 3-months to 12-months in duration, depending on the specific coaching objectives and application of coaching. Frequency of sessions can be weekly or monthly, with the majority ofprograms designed for a session every second week. Sessions range from 1.5-hours and 2-hours in duration. Our program fees are comparative to the medium range of the Australian market.
