Now that I finished the course I can tell you that it was an absolute pleasure. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor, went through ILCT for my initial Coach training and am a CEAP among other professional certifications – I have quite a few. I say all that to say that I’ve had many different ethics courses and your course was the best I’ve ever had! I enjoyed the break down in confidentiality & privilege, & etc. It was amazing and you are phenomenal! I also enjoyed the article about Counseling vs. Coaching.  It was a great article and important because people still have difficulty discerning between the two.
