It was when I was on maternity leave from my work as a counsellor that I was contemplating the next chapter in life.
I had been feeling that it was time for me to expand into something new, something creative, something uplifting…something else…I wasn’t sure. I was exploring all kinds of courses when I stumbled upon the Beautiful You Coaching Academy.
“The Beautiful You Life Coaching Course is for people just like you – people who want to make a difference, see others grow and shine, work with people they love and feel connected to – and yes – create their own business and a life they love.” BYCA
The description of this course, its content and outcomes were so warm, welcoming, heart centred and creative. It was so easy to imagine myself as a Beautiful You trainee, it sounded just the thing for me at this time. But I didn’t sign up immediately. My head needed to do its thing: try and talk my heart out of it. So my head said things like: “What is a life coach anyway? Is this a reputable course? Will anyone actually take you seriously? Stick to university courses!” and so on and so on and so on….
I tried to think about doing another university degree, but I could not stop thinking about Beautiful You Coaching Academy. I returned again and again to their website. I read all about the amazing certified coaches who had come from such diverse and interesting backgrounds, residing all over the world, and who were now enjoying fulfilling and location independent entrepreneurial work. I read about the incredible CEO + Founder Julie Parker’s success and experience as a life and business coach, trainer and TEDX speaker with growing excitement. Her background in my very own field (Social Work) was a little something to please my questioning mind. Julie’s words were so warm and inspiring they leapt at me and dove straight into my own heart.
My heart won. I signed up. I remember vividly the day the postman delivered a large package containing my extensive 400+ page BYCA life coaching manual and 200 + page workbook, along with a beautiful set of inspiration cards for my desk all tied up with a pink ribbon and a lovely welcoming note. I knew then I was in for a pretty amazing ride!
And what a ride it was. I very naively thought that being a six month course that it wouldn’t be all that challenging. I was wrong, in the very best way. Fourteen modules of topics, supported by comprehensive reading and worksheet exercises, incredible group calls, audio lectures and interviews with experts; opportunities to meet in person at the Inspiration Days; a closed Facebook group for ongoing support; opportunities to develop coaching skills with a peer buddy and receive feedback; coaching client resources and access to a private membership site to receive support and constructive feedback on all personal learning and development. Read here for more details about the course.
The Beautiful You Coaching Academy Life Coaching course is comprehensive and well-structured, and offers a great mix of coaching skill and business development teaching and learning. Beyond this, what really stands out to me is the exceptional personal support from Julie and the assistant trainers. This support is nurturing but don’t let that fool you – they will challenge you to be your very best, to bring everything you’ve got to your study and if you do this, the personal growth you stand to gain is DEEP. Unprecedented. Not only are the trainers wonderfully supportive, but the connections and friendships made with fellow trainees are incredible. The connection simply doesn’t end when the course does – the vibrant community continues! What an amazing foundation for an emerging life coach.
I learned the specific skills and gained the courage I needed to establish my life coaching business. Today, as I write this, it is less than two months since I have graduated from BYCA. I have developed my brand that feels just right for me, established a website, engaged my ideal clients in coaching (both Pro- Bono and Paid), been interviewed as an expert on Wellness and Creativity, had my writing featured in an online journal, delivered a presentation and workshop, created an e-workbook and become a Certified Coach. This blows my mind! Before I started this course, there is no way I would have believed all this would happen, and happen so soon!
