Advanced Certification in Feminist Coaching

You may be a feminist.

You’re definitely a coach.


BUT I’M HERE TO TELL YOU THAT DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE A FEMINIST COACH.


Feminist coaching is an entirely different method of coaching from traditional life coaching systems.

It’s a lens through which you understand the world and how women move through it, relate to it, are shaped by it, and shape it in turn.

It’s a holistic social, political, historical, and intellectual lens on coaching tools, the coaching industry, personal change, and social progress.

And you can’t truly understand what is happening in women’s brains and how to help them change their lives without it.

(I said what I said.)

Almost every woman in the world grows up in a patriarchal society.

Almost every woman in the world grows up in a white supremacist society, or a society impacted by white supremacism exported by “first world” countries.

Almost every woman in the world grows up exposed to sizeism, ableism, and a host of other intersecting structures of oppression and marginalization.

These powerful cultural narratives shape women’s brains from infancy on.

So when you try to coach a woman
with basic life coaching tools?

You’re bringing a butter knife to a sword fight.

YOU CAN’T TRULY HELP YOUR CLIENTS EMPOWER THEMSELVES UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IS MAKING THEM FEEL DISEMPOWERED.


And when it comes to women, it’s not just evolutionary biology or cognitive psychology or their family histories at play.


It's what they believe they are allowed.

It's what they believe they can accomplish.

It's what they believe they are worth.


And if you’re coaching a woman of color, or a fat woman, or a woman living with a disability, or an LGBTQ+ woman, or a woman who lives across more than two marginalized identities?

And you don’t understand the history, theory, and impacts of the social forces that have shaped their experiences, minds and lives?


You’re doing them a disservice. And you’re doing yourself one too.

This isn’t a bonus.

This isn’t just “good to know.”


THIS IS ESSENTIAL INFORMATION
WHEN IT COMES TO COACHING WOMEN EFFECTIVELY.

And this is the only place to learn it.

Welcome to the Advanced Certification in Feminist Coaching.

BECAUSE THE REVOLUTION STARTS WITHIN.

The Advanced Certification in Feminist Coaching is the only certification that combines the most powerful cognitive change tools in the coaching business with an intersectional feminist analysis. You simply cannot learn this work at this level anywhere else.*

  • Have mastery of feminist coaching tools in areas like body image, sex, eating + exercise, social relationships, family + parenting, romantic relationships + dating, money, work, self-confidence and self-care.
  • Feel confident coaching any woman, of any background or identity, on any topic.
  • Know how to approach coaching from a collaborative, consent-based perspective that maximizes your client’s agency and empowerment.
  • Be able to use the CTFAR model at an advanced level with full and complete command of the tool.
  • Develop capacity to expand your own body of work in deeper and more feminist-informed directions.

Partial grants on a need-basis are available from the Feminist Mindset Revolution Fund: Kimberlé Crenshaw Edition.

Kimberlé Crenshaw is an American lawyer, civil rights advocate, philosopher, and a founder of the field of critical race theory. She has revolutionized feminism with her development of the theory of intersectionality, which creates a framework for understanding how aspects of a person's social and political identities combine to create different modes of discrimination and privilege. As Crenshaw says, "the struggle against patriarchy and racism must be substantively robust and inextricably intertwined." The ability to see how these (and other) forms of oppression intersect - and to navigate coaching relationships with this awareness - is at the heart of our ability to liberate women and change the world.

Feminism started as a social movement. But movements are created, organized, and executed by human beings with human minds.

WE CAN’T BUILD A NEW WORLD UNTIL WE CAN DREAM IT.


And we can’t dream it until our minds are free.

Your job as a coach is to help your clients free their minds.

And to do that, you have to educate and free your own.

All the rest will follow.
