Vancouver coaches who are scattered across the Lower Mainland from Vancouver to Chilliwack. The west coast is a hot-bed for life and business coaching.

Aside for being trained by CTI, there are no specific requirements to enlist on this website; however, my opinion is that most of the coaches listed are of the highest quality. Most have been around for a number of years and have been at one time or the other, active in the community, contributing to the advancement of coaching for the benefit of all other Vancouver coaches.

- This is the website of the International Coach Federation (ICF) and contains over 14,000 member coaches. There is a coach search system and it is the most comprehensive listing of coaches.
