What would you tell a friend who is considering Prep School?
"Sarah, Deb, and Wendy are amazing. They generously share their wisdom and grace. Prep School showed me what coaching is like and what being a coach is like. I loved getting to see coaching in action and to experience it myself!"
"To do it - duh! Commit to the time slot. take notes. listen to the recorded calls later. ask questions. be involved. trust. and have fun!"
"I'd say do it! It's a great way to get your feet wet a little to see if life coaching is right for you!"
"Definitely take the course it will help with the decision. And even if it doesn't you'll learn!
"[Prep School is a] Great tool to help decide if coach training is for them."
"I love the coaching demonstrations. They always provide so much!"
"It answered the biggest question of all for me ... I have felt a pull for being a life coach. Dont know why. Doesn't matter. But it is part of my true north."
How did Prep School prepare you for life coach training?
"It helped me trust my heart and my gut, to believe in myself and in my calling. It helped me decide that I definitely want to attend life coach training--and I know now that Martha Beck's training is the right one for me. It gave me a taste of what coaching itself is like, and also what a coaching paradigm/worldview is like!"
"This course really gave me insight on the hows and whys of coaching. It really helped answer so many questions that are not always easy to get when researching online or being given a sales pitch to join just for more info. It was simple and yet in depth. I feel like I have walked away with new tools, more understanding, and a passion to find out more."
"I feel like I have a much better understanding of what life coach training involves, and what to do or not to do while in life coach training. I liked the inside tips that were discussed. I also feel more relaxed about life coaching. I know I can suck. I know I don't need to know why I'm doing it."
"This Prep Course was very valuable to me in so many ways - more so then I could have imagined. It really helped open me up to the reality that this can actually happen. I can actually do this. it took the big bad scary blinders off and helped sort out some what ifs, whys, hows, who thoughts and questions that are far too often hard to get answered when researching. The coaches were so perspective and caring through all the classes. I really appreciated their personal stories and honest candor. I felt like they were really sharing themselves.Before the course I had poked around, dipped my toe in, and saw life coaching from the 10,000 foot level. After the course, I have a good grasp on what it entails, how it works, the training to look for, the questions to ask myself - a real look into the world of coaching.The coaching sessions were utterly amazing too! I felt like I had landed in a safe place to explore what was lying there underneath without judgement or fear. I have a better understanding of myself. And that it is totally ok to not have the answers, to trust my heart as much as my head, and to suck at it! I would have never thought I would walk away feeling like "wahoo! I suck and that's ok!...I got this!" but I did - and I do!
"I've been thinking about the idea of becoming a Life coach for some time. I've thought, why would anyone want to be coached by someone who continually needs her own life coach? I still have so much to learn myself! Prep School has helped me to relax and see first of all even the best life coach needs a life coach. I now understand that life coach training is just that, training. No one is expected to already BE a life coach. Great overview on what life coach training involves and inside tips on navigating the life coach journey. Thank you Prep School!"

"Sometimes you may not know why you feel pulled or called to do something. It just feels right. Clear. Not only did this class help me to realize that the pull toward coaching was leading me in the right direction, but that feeling happens a lot in many areas of my life. Each time I paid attention to that feeling, and allowed it to lead me, I always gain something AMAZING. Learn what that clarity and peace feels like. And let it take you to places you never dreamed were possible."

"I have dreamed of being a life coach for years. From the moment I heard the term "life coach," something stirred within my soul. Even when I barely knew what coaching was, I sensed that it was to be my vocation. As I trekked along my path, working on my Bachelor's degree in psychology, I absorbed everything I learned with the intention of using it to serve. But when I finished school, I started to doubt myself, to feel discouraged. Was my desire to be a life coach selfish? Was it practical? Would I be taken seriously? I felt anxious about my dream, battling an army of fear and insecurity. Prep School helped me claim my calling to become a life coach. Through the classes, and my coaching session, I was reminded to listen to my heart, to trust my intuition, to pay attention to my own inner knowing. I was encouraged to follow my internal guidance. Listening to these beautiful coaches confirmed what I already knew: this is what I want to do. This is what I'm meant to do. I am so grateful to Deb, Wendy, and Sarah for opening my heart, and for shining their lovely light on my own true path."

"Sarah ROCKS!!! I had a great session with her and cannot wait for session 2. Brought me to peace and a clear tune-up of my compass."
Feedback from Private Coaching
"I had my coaching session with Deborah, and I can honestly say it was the best coaching session I've had. She homed right in on one of my most persistent counterproductive thoughts and did the work on it, and it changed my whole perspective. She also asked me a profoundly powerful question, "What choice would you make if you didn't have fear?" I feel so inspired and empowered, and more enthusiastic about coaching than ever! I feel honored to be part of this class and to receive such amazing, generous coaching."
"I loved how Wendy, from a casual conversation, zeroed in on an important point from something I said and built on it, prompting me to think about an aspect that I had not considered (reframing)."
