Unique Self Coaching: A powerful framework for psycho-spiritual transformation

Primarily rooted in the seminal Unique Self distinctions articulated by Dr. Marc Gafni’s Unique Self Theory and Enlightenment Teachings, the Unique Self Coaching methodology offers a simple, elegant, and profound framework for the entire journey of human development.

The approach was developed in 2013 by ICC™ coaches Barbara Alexander and Claire Molinard upon Dr. Marc Gafni’s invitation to apply the Unique Self teachings to Coaching. Using the ICC™ coaching methodology, the process integrates cutting-edge 21-century psychology and ageless world spirituality wisdom and is designed to activate Unique Self Awakening. The first iteration of this program was offered between 2014 and 2018 as a training for therapists, coaches, and other change agents, through Barbara and Claire’s signature training program “Unique Self Emergence”. Since then, the program has evolved as an online training.

For whom?

Unique Self Coaching offers a dynamic and modular curriculum that can be adapted to individuals and groups in a wide range of contexts. Because the process facilitates getting to the heart of who you are – an irreducible expression of the Love Intelligence that animates all of existence – and how the creative impulse of this Source wants to express through you, it has many applications
