The Erickson Journey
Meet Our Founder
Marilyn Atkinson is the creator of the acclaimed Solution-Focused Coaching model,
The Art & Science of Coaching.
As a clinical psychologist, Marilyn became a dedicated follower of Milton Erickson's work giving his name to Erickson Coaching International because she believed in the power of his solution-focused, metaphorical mindset as a powerful means of human transformation. She modelled Erickson's techniques and neuroscientific principles to create the programs that enable coaches to have a profound impact.
In the 40 + years that Erickson has been growing, she has traveled around the world providing training and coaching for the global community.
At age 79, Marilyn remains a formidable trainer, thought-leader, speaker and writer, inspiring the world with her relentless dedication to human transformation - one conversation at a time.
