Maude Burger-Smith | PCC Coach

Burnout Prevention Coach | Trainer & Mentor

Hi, I’m Maude and thanks for your interest on this Certificate. I’m an Integrative Coach (ICF PCC) and work 1:1 and in small groups.

I work as a women’s burnout prevention and leadership coach. I first studied the connection between body and mind in 2000 with a 3 year degree in the Alexander Technique at the same time as doing my MA in intercultural studies. Over the decades I have added certifications and experience in breathwork; embodiment; mindfulness and somatic practices and use tools from all of these modalities within my work. 

We live in a disembodied culture that has separated mind and body; that prizes cognition and intellect; often ignores and diminishes our physical self and experience. In this Certificate in Somatic Coaching Practices and Visualisations I want to give you research, tools and practices to start turning towards your own experiences and be able to share tools to do so with your own clients. 

Growing the practice of embodied self-awareness is the foundation of this course and allows us more information to get curious about, work with and facilitate growth in. Think of it as a way of expanding your existing coaching skills. 

I look forward to being with you!

Here's feedback from
previous trainees
"I recently undertook the ICF Diploma with Become which has been a highly rewarding experience both professionally and personally.

I am career coach and as a continuous learner I was looking for ways to develop further and enhance the services I provide to my clients.

Working with Joseph has been educational, performance enhancing and most importantly, enjoyable. Joseph is a professional, subject matter expert who is warm, engaging and easy to develop rapport with. He has a great coaching and mentoring style and has superb interpersonal skills.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending others to work with Joseph and the team at Become."

"I have had the pleasure to complete an Integrative Coaching Diploma with Become and the amazing facilitators and coaches.

It's been one of the most rewarding learning experiences that I've ever done. This is because of the interactive delivery style, exceptionally knowledgeable trainers and a friendly, supportive environment for development.

It was really valuable working alongside other like-minded people and obtaining an ICF Certification. Joseph and the team were always ready to help and I looked forward to the Live Classes. More than anything else I felt truly supported. I obtained detailed, wonderful feedback that helped me develop myself as an integrative coach. Thank you to all the team at Become!"
Florentina Sandru
Talent Manager & Alumni of the Diploma in Integrative Coaching
"I’ve done various training courses over the years and nothing comes close to this one.

The ICF Course in Integrative Coaching has clearly been well thought out and this is evident by how well structured it is with the variety of resources available.

The online portal was invaluable as a go-to tool jam packed with course materials and was great to be able to re-watch session recordings. The team leading the course were so encouraging and the one-to-one mentoring within this course was incredibly invaluable. Finally, I met a great bunch of likeminded people.

So, for anyone considering doing an accredited ICF programme I would not hesitate to recommend Become. You won’t regret it!"

Questions about
live online training?

It depends! On the topic, the facilitator and the audience. We think that to make online learning effective you need to make it engaging and worthwhile. And that’s what we do! All of our facilitators understand the ins and outs of using a wide range of communication, training and technological tools to help you make the most of our time together.

We do not do death by PowerPoint – you are involved in the learning programme. It is not a replication of a face-to-face event – it’s a completely redesigned learning experience specifically tailored for online delivery.

Through a variety of ways. First we make sure that you are prepared for the session. We send you clear joining instructions that help you make the most of it. You also get access to the materials before so that you can have these ready.

We of course use a wide range of additional tools to help us engage with the learning material including Jamboards, Menti polls, videos, smaller breakout rooms, the use of Google Docs to store notes. And don’t worry if you don’t know what these are and how to use them. That’s why we are here for. All you need to do is click a link and show up!

No. You do however need access to a computer. A tablet will work however we would not recommend it as it limits the interaction you can have with your facilitator. 

This is a tricky one. No you don’t, in essence but we would prefer you to! Not all the time. You can switch it off if you want to stand up and do a big stretch! That’s all good! 

We just find that seeing people’s faces not only makes the session more engaging but also helps us support your learning. We can see your non-verbal behaviour and adjust the session accordingly based on what’s happening.

Yes we do! If you’re interested speak to your line manager or your HR team to understand if there’s any other colleagues who might be interested. The minimum we take is 4 learners for an in-house course. 

Yes we do. We have delivered this workshop across various organisations worldwide include the United States, Asia and Australia.

Definitely! We want you to make sure that you choose the right training programme. We’re honest about our approach and we’d love the opportunity to discuss with you how we work.  

Feel free to contact us directly with any questions or simply to have a chat on +44-2080640376 or on info@tobecome.org
