Ever heard of Zoom fatigue? Yeah. It’s a thing. We’re all Zoomed out at this point! That’s why we created this all-in-one coaching, mentoring, training program to support you at every step of the way.

Our learning model follows the 80/20 rule… 20% online learning and 80% virtual in-person. This is to make sure that you’re getting as much 1:1 support, learning by doing, and practice time as possible and NOT just staring at a screen listening to another ‘expert’.

As a visual kinesthetic learner, personally I need to see things and learn by actually doing them. So I understand the challenges of online learning… That’s why this program has been designed for all learning styles, whether you’re visual, auditory, kinesthetic or a combination.

The other challenge with online learning is accountability and continuity. It’s just hard to hold yourself accountable with a mountain of other tasks and responsibilities piling up – life always seems to get in the way. That’s why we provide the community, peer and personal coaching and mentoring support – to help you stay on track.

This program is for people who lead busy lives and especially for those of you who have been asking me for years for the full coach training experience, but want it according to your own schedule and lifestyle.

Our coaches launch successful practices right after our training and are able to integrate the tools and skills into their practice right away. You will not need another coach training program after this one – although we know that you’re probably here because you’re a lifelong learner, like me!

This program will give you the training that you need to launch a successful practice upon completion AND to start using the tools and skills in your work and life straight away.

We believe where the world is at right now that these specific NLP somatic coaching skills are needed more than ever.

The truth is unless someone like you cares an awful lot and is brave enough to bring your unique superpowers forward to BE the change you want to see in the world and empower everyone you come into contact with to do the same, nothings going to change.

There has never been a more important time to step up into the important role coaches can play at this time to reconnect clients with their humanness and innate wisdom and empower them to become the inner directed changemakers we need right now.

Are you ready to join our global tribe of Conscious Change Makers?

I hope the answer is YES.
