In this interactive 2-hour Café Coaching Session the spotlight is on “Confidentiality”. A key element of the ICF Core Competency 1 and the Code of Ethics.

Through exploration, interaction and reflection we will explore the following questions:

How might we shift from a ‘ticking the box-duty’ to having a conversation on confidentiality?

How might we shift beyond the initial contracting on confidentiality to building and sustaining a safe and trusting relationship with the client?

Through various lenses, we will observe the meaning of Confidential(ity) : our own worldview, our clients’ and other stakeholders’ perspectives. Explore the relevance of confidentiality and anticipate potentially challenging situations that may arise from the client/stakeholders during, or at the end of the coaching journey.

Hellen will bring real examples of dilemmas from her international coaching practice, and participants are encouraged to bring theirs. In this session we will work on an actual dilemma that you may have encountered in your practice, to further develop your internal ‘ethical compass’ with regard to confidentiality.

By sharing insights, learning curves you have experienced and tips with and from peers, you will build confidence to navigate around this vital aspect of coaching.


At the end of the meeting, participants will have acquired practical knowledge allowing them to go much deeper into the question of confidentiality.


CCEUs will be awarded for ICF members who participate in this event


You will deepen insights by exploring various perspectives on confidentiality including intercultural differences.

Gain insights into why it is vital to have a conversation around this subject.

Deepen your knowledge of professional conduct.

Engage in a reflective practice on an ethical dilemma around confidentiality.

Build confidence to navigate around complex situations and potential pitfalls.

This “Café Coach” offers an opportunity to the English-speaking coaching profession in and around Paris to connect and learn together.
