MPWC is proud to deliver the ANZPOP Process-Oriented Coaching Program, bringing the Processwork awareness model into the realm of coaching, that is, the art of formulating and achieving goals.

Process-oriented coaching is a unique approach to goal formulation and achievement, such that goals integrate the deeper life processes of the client with their everyday ambitions, and progress is measured by task completion but tracked with deep awareness.

This coaching method combines intuition and dreams, tasks and plans, feedback, evaluation, and awareness processes, to ensure that the client’s diverse potentials are engaged in the goal and are aligned to clear, grounded actions towards achieving the goal.
The Process-Oriented Coaching Program brings a sophisticated understanding of the nature and nuances of the coaching-client relationship, based on values, communication signals and dynamics, and awareness of relationship entanglements, projections, and transference.

Process Oriented Coaching is perfect for people who want to work deeply and with awareness, without crossing the line into therapy.

The ANZPOP POCP is based on the coaching framework developed by Processwork Diplomates Joanna Dulińska and Michał Duda from the Institute for Process Oriented Psychology (IPP) in Poland. It has been taught in Poland since 2011 as a Certificate in Process Oriented Coaching. Melbourne (MPWC) is the only place in the world to study this course in English. 


Processwork is a comprehensive awareness paradigm that seeks to observe, follow, and support the flow of nature as it emerges and unfolds through people, groups, and communities.

Developed primarily by Drs Arnold and Amy Mindell throughout the 1970s (and ongoing) it combines Taoism, Jungian psychology, communication and systems theory, Shamanic tradition, and quantum physics, into a trainable model that enables practitioners to identify the subtle signals of emergent processes and then help them become more known to the individual or group, such that they increase awareness of self and others.

Harmony is a wonderful thing, but not nearly as powerful as awareness.

Arnold Mindell, PhD

The Processwork model was birthed by Dr. Arnold Mindell, a physicist, and Jungian analyst who noticed the patterns present in people’s night time dreams were the same as those present in their body symptoms. From this unfolded a model grounded in observable communication signals that carry information from disavowed parts of self and identity. Practitioners are trained to observe these signals and then help them unfold and become conscious. It’s not an advice-giving or practitioner-solving model; Processworkers help nature unfold.

Processwork can be applied in all areas of life. The major applications currently include psychotherapy (individual, relationship and family), coma and near death work, conflict transformation and mediation, facilitation, coaching, and organisational development.


If you already know you want to be a coach, the next step is to discern which coaching program best fits your values and goals.

The POCP is a good fit if you:

are passionate about helping others achieve goals

want a high level of practical experience as part of your training

believe that disturbances and challenges in life are meaningful
value the insights from night time dreams (even if you don’t yet know how to access the meaning)
are curious about other people and value relationship

are interested in and have developed some self-awareness
want to learn a strong ethical framework and clear professional boundaries
have already achieved some goals in your own life


The ANZPOP Process-Oriented Coaching Program is a nine-month training program combining group workshops, individual supervision, peer coaching, and coaching practice with real clients. You’ll learn a unique model of coaching, clear professional boundaries (to keep you and your clients safe) and gain deep insight about yourself as an emerging coach.
