Anyone can say that they’re a life coach…but you don’t know what you don’t know until you’ve gone through life coach training and gained an in-depth knowledge of the subconscious mind.
For me, the experience of going to my first life coach certification training was so eye-opening.
I didn’t really know what I was in for or what to expect, I just knew it was something I felt a strong pull towards.
(If you’re reading this, you might be feeling something similar. All I can say is, if you’re feeling that nudge towards life coach training, follow it!)
I’ve always loved helping people.
Every time I went out to coffee with a friend, I couldn’t help but spend the whole time asking them deep questions, getting to know about their life, and helping them see their own potential. I just loved it! But I had no idea that I could actually make a career out of it, let alone a million-dollar business.
When I signed up for life coach training and started going through the content, it opened up a whole new world for me.
When I learned powerful techniques like Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnosis, which teach you how to communicate with your subconscious mind, it was like someone had handed me the owner’s manual to my mind for the first time!
I remember being so excited, and then almost pissed off…
I’d gone through so much in my life, struggled so much with my emotions and self-doubt. I was painfully shy, insecure, self-loathing…and honestly, so mean to myself every single day…all when I could’ve used these techniques to release these things in under 10 minutes.
How was it that I had never seen or read about this anywhere? I had never seen it on TV. Teachers had never talked about it.
Why wasn’t I taught that there was an unwritten language of the mind?
NOT knowing the language of the mind is like going to a restaurant in Spain and trying to order in English…you may not get exactly what you want. But when you DO speak the language of the mind, you can manifest anything you want.
For me, not knowing what I didn’t know kept me blocked from getting clients, making the money I wanted, and having the success I was hoping for.
Once I knew these tools and techniques, I had to share them with as many people as possible. I now had a powerful way to help people make shifts in their relationships, finances, health…because everything operates at a subconscious level.
Now, I’ve had the joy of guiding over 700 students through their life coach training in the YES SUPPLYⓇ Method, knowing that they’ll go on to share this gift with countless others.
If you’re wondering if life coach training could change your life…the answer is YES!
Why Do Life Coach Training?
Life coach training is where you learn tools and techniques to help people make powerful shifts in their lives and achieve their highest potential.
When I first started coaching, I was helping people build their online presence. How to blog, how to post on social media, and how to grow an audience the same way I had.
What I found was, I could give someone a script, an outline, teach them all the “tactics,” and do pretty much EVERYTHING for them…but if their mindset wasn’t there, they wouldn’t stop getting in their own way…even if I was holding their hand the entire time.
I remember being on the phone with one client, pulling her story out of her, pretty much writing her blogs FOR her…but she was just full of doubts and fears. She kept asking, “But what if…?” I realized…coaching is not about telling people what to do or sending them videos to watch. I knew I needed more tools.
On top of that, no matter how good I was at what I was doing, I still didn’t feel as confident as I wanted to as a coach.
I was constantly asking myself questions like:
- “How can I be sure I can help my clients make a shift?”
- “Who am I to coach someone else?”
- “What do I say in a session?”
- “What if they ask me something I don’t know the answer to?”
What I’ve learned is that when a coach has fears about delivering for their clients, they WILL self-sabotage when it comes to attracting high-paying clients in the first place.
I finally reached the point where I was done playing small and decided to get into mindset work. That’s when I signed up for my first certification training.
So many of the resources out there for coaches focus on how to get more clients, but not on how to get your clients results.
Way too many coaches just “guess” when it comes to getting results. They hope they are asking the right coaching questions…but there’s no structure, and no underlying knowledge of how the mind works, and no way to know if they are doing it right or leading to a deep transformation.
When you invest in your life coach training, you learn tools to help your clients truly transform their lives…which leads to happy clients…which leads to more clients!
What Do You Learn in Life Coach Training?
There are SO many different kinds of coaches, and there’s a life coach training designed for every single one of them.
You could learn how to coach people on mindset, business, health, relationships…really anything you can think of!
Most life coach training programs will teach you how to listen to your clients and ask coaching questions. You learn how to listen deeply to your clients and pick up on the limiting beliefs that might be holding them back.
Asking great questions is a huge part of how you help your clients get to their own answers.
That said, it’s really only the beginning of all the tools you can have at your disposal. That’s why when I designed the YES SUPPLYⓇ Method, I decided to also teach advanced skills like NLP, hypnotherapy, EFT tapping, and energy work.
You’ll learn how to hear not just what your clients are saying, but what the meaning is underneath. When you know the science behind listening to language, you’ll be able to easily hear in language when a client has an internal conflict, a limiting decision, a limiting identity, or repressed emotions. When you know what to listen for, you will be a master at creating the shifts, and be intuitive with the tools you choose.
Many life coach training certification programs don’t necessarily teach you anything on business, which is a super important part of becoming a coach.
You’ll need to know how to create systems to market yourself, have sales conversations, and handle the behind-the-scenes of your business.
YES SUPPLY is a one-stop shop for EVERYTHING you need to become a successful coach. We teach you everything: how to transform and coach your clients, how to create a signature program, how to earn while helping others deeply, and social media marketing to help you amplify your message, grow your audience, and reach more people.
Ideally, your life coach training includes all of the above, but you’ve never really done! Even now I’m still constantly investing in coaches, courses, and training programs, going to conferences, reading books, and doing everything I can to take my mindset to the next level. If you want to be successful, your mindset is an ongoing journey!
Your Life Coach Training Starts With You
When you set out to become a life coach, YOU are your own first client.
At the end of the day, your success as a coach depends on your energy and your mindset, so you have to embody that “I want it, I got it” vibration for yourself, and then you can help others do the same! One of the first things you’ll need to learn is how to step into the identity of the version of you who creates wild success.
I remember one of the first powerful shifts I made during my own life coach training happened when we learned a simple NLP technique called “Like to Dislike.” My instructor asked if anyone had a food that they wanted to not like anymore, and I said, “Me! Please help me get over coffee!”
At the time, I was COMPLETELY addicted to coffee, drinking about 5 cups per day. I was even starting to have stomach pains and I’d been trying to quit for YEARS, but I couldn’t.
Within 5 minutes, my NLP instructor had shifted the way I perceived coffee and boom, I didn’t like it anymore. That’s how powerful NLP is!
I couldn’t wait to learn more and more techniques and try them out on myself and my friends, family, and clients.
Soon, I was starting to see powerful shifts in my clients, from early wins like helping a client quit smoking in one session…to now seeing my YES SUPPLY students hit 6-figures in their businesses again and again!
What To Look For In Your Life Coach Training
Not all life coach training is created equal. There are plenty of places to get your life coach training online, and it’s up to you to find the program that feels like the best fit for you!
When choosing a life coach training institute, also ask yourself if you want the results of the company you’re training with.
Many of the life coaches that we certify here at YES SUPPLY come to us having degrees in psychology or even already gone through other life coach training programs, but knowing that they want to go deeper.
When you work with the power of the subconscious mind, you can actually create new neural pathways, new habits, and a new self-image. It’s not just “rah-rah, believe in yourself” mindset work — it’s real transformation.
So whether you’ve been coaching already or just been on a journey with your own mindset, the right tools can help you take everything to the next level.
I did a TON of research when I was looking for my life coach training to find out what was right for me, calling and emailing multiple companies.
Here are a few questions I’d recommend you ask when looking for the right life coach training for you:
1) Does your life coach training teach tools and techniques like Neuro-linguistic Programming, hypnotherapy, or EFT Tapping?
I can’t tell you enough about how life-changing these tools are!
Neuro-linguistic programming uses the power of language to reprogram the mind. Hypnotherapy allows you to go deep into the subconscious and make powerful changes. Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT Tapping, rebalances the signals that are being sent to the brain through our energy meridian points to help you feel better in a matter of minutes.
We teach all of these techniques and more within YES SUPPLY, and it’s not common to get so many modalities in one life coach training program.
When you visualize your dream business, what tools do you want to have at your disposal to get your clients results?
2) Does your life coach training institute align with your values? Has the leader accomplished something you want to accomplish?
It’s always important to look for leaders who embody your values and have achieved the type of success you’re looking for.
For me, I wanted to learn from someone who had a business, and I wanted to know not just the HOW, but the WHY behind the tools I was learning.
Get clear on what kind of leader you want to be and look for someone who aligns with that!
At YES SUPPLY, our values are about sharing this work of energetic and subconscious methods of transformation with the world, making it accessible to everyone, and reminding people that no matter what they have been through, there is unlimited success available to you.
For my own life, I’ve come from very humble beginnings, and now I live a life beyond my wildest dreams!
When you choose a life coach training program, choose one where you resonate with the people in the company. You become a reflection of who you spend the most time with, so spend your time surrounded by people who you want to be like and grow into.
3) What kind of results are the students getting?
You’ll want to look for success stories from the students of your life coach training program both during and after the program. It’s one thing for coaches to leave the program happy, it’s another to make sure that they are set up to succeed afterward.
My student Amy shares how she didn’t even have a following and attracted 7 high-end clients within a month of graduating from YES SUPPLY here:
Also, look for a like-minded community of coaches that you can imagine being a part of. Ask around about how coaches are supporting each others’ success after the program. With friends to cheer you on, there’s no stopping you!
DeeDee shares a little about what it was like to find the YES SUPPLY community here:
4) Is your life coach training accredited? Does it include a certification?
When your life coach training program is accredited by a major organization such as the International Coaches Federation (ICF) then you can be sure that it’s met certain standards.
There are lots of programs out there that may teach you skills or techniques, but don’t actually offer a certification. Getting a certification helps a lot of new coaches feel more confident in their abilities and gives you an added level of credibility to clients.
5) Does your life coach training teach you how to run a business, including how to market yourself?
Most life coach training institutes don’t necessarily teach you the business of coaching, and without knowing this, you won’t have any clients to coach!
Along the way of my business journey, I’ve made a lot of mistakes…but I found my way. I’ve signed up for programs, software, and tools that didn’t work for me, which shone a light clearer on exactly what does work for me.
Ultimately, it allowed me to simplify everything I know about business into the 5-step model that I’ve seen work time and time again for my students. I’ve taken everything I’ve learned to make it easy for you to create success fast!
If your life coach training doesn’t include business or marketing training, you’ll probably need to get additional courses or coaching to get started.
But when you’re in a program with proven systems, it brings you one step closer to your dream business.
YES SUPPLY is the one-stop shop for everything you need.

It fills my heart to know that I’m helping so many people transform their lives with these tools, knowing that they will go on to help others as well.
I remember at one of our in-person trainings, my student Brooke made a powerful shift that left her in tears. She had a belief that people didn’t like her…which reminded me so much of little Reese years ago.
We did a simple technique called Single Belief Change, and afterward, Brooke could not even relate to that old belief anymore.
I’ll let her tell you about it in her own words:
Is Life Coach Training Right For You?
If you want your clients to invest with you, then you have to invest in yourself.
If you want to be seen as the best, then ask yourself “What am I doing every day to be the best at what I do?”
Your gut instinct will tell you what you want to do next…are you being pulled to make an investment in yourself?
I even remember thinking that to be a life coach, I had to know EVERYTHING about life! I still don’t know everything about life, and I don’t need to — because what I DO know is how to speak to the subconscious mind.
Now, I get to share my message with the world in an authentic way — and impact countless lives along the way.
Life coach training is perfect for you if you want to live your purpose by helping people, and have the FREEDOM to design your life any way you want.
I’ve learned that when a thought appears, the moment you truly desire it, then it is intended for you…all you have to do is say YES to it.
If you are ready to say YES to yourself, you can start with my free life coach training masterclass today!
