IJCA is a membership organization for trained professional Jungian coaches using a powerful methodology for lasting transformation.

We strive to lead a worldwide transformational movement in coaching by providing a universal system to awaken people to their highest nature and collectively raise the consciousness of the planet.

Our Values

The International Jungian Coaching Association exemplifies the most up-to-date standards and practices in the development of higher-level trainings for people pursuing careers as certified life coaches. Our programs focus on personal growth and empowerment so that our coaches can make a difference in the world and live with meaning and fulfillment in their own lives and careers.


We believe that all individuals should be empowered to express their true nature and transcend social and psychological limitations.


Certified Coaches are trained by a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology so their knowledge is research-based.

Creativity & Innovation

The Jungian unconscious mind is creative. We teach our coaches to integrate their knowledge in their own creative pursuits and innovate new expressions of Jung's concepts in modern form.
