Registration for the next condensed summer
Gentle Sleep Coach Training and Certification Program
begins April 15, 2014
Become a Gentle Sleep Coach:
Trained and Certified by The Sleep Lady®
Join me, Kim West, The Sleep Lady in my “1 Million Mission” – to help a million tired parents transform their sleepless lives by the year 2020.
I can’t possibly do that alone. There are too many sleepless babies and tired parents everywhere.
It is very important to me that exhausted parents get the best advice and most of all results AND…….
That the sleep coaches I train get the very best training possible and that they get as many clients as they want so they can have a successful business while having the biggest impact on the world and their communities.
So I created the most comprehensive gentle sleep coach certification program in the world.
When you certify as a Gentle Sleep Coach, you’ll learn how to build a thriving, rewarding business on your own terms.
A business where you get to give back every day by bringing peace, sanity and a good night’s sleep to families in your corner of the world!
A business where YOU get to work from home, chose your own hours and make money…all while helping others transform their lives! It doesn’t get much better than that
Part 1: Basic Training- a four month interactive, online program with 80+ hours of training content and mentorship that will give you everything you need to start your business as a successful Gentle Sleep Coach. Class content will be delivered each week and there will be live Q and A classes for you to call in and ask your questions with me and the other faculty members.
We will cover all facets of building a successful sleep coaching business from how to address every kind of sleep problem with a family to how to get clients!
The Basic Training Program is jam packed with direct training from me, Kim West, The Sleep Lady AND my incredible team of outside experts to bring you additional specialty training in postpartum depression, medical sleep disorders, breastfeeding, working with 4 and 5 month olds and legal aspects of setting up a sleep coaching business!
You’re going to learn the ins and outs of the business of being a sleep coach. You will be given forms to use, thank you letters, fees to charge, to how to get and schedule clients, how to build your business and hold workshops to bring in income, clients and media attention.
With over 80 hours of training this is THE most comprehensive sleep coach training program in the world. Hands down.
I won’t only be teaching you how to be a sleep coach, I will be showing you, supervising, mentoring you through the process of sleep coaching a family from beginning to end.
This is why I decided that it was essential for everyone’s success and for professionalizing the field (which will make you stand out) that I make this a certification program. You see I think it would be a disservice to you and the growing field to just give you a big manual and tell you “good luck”. The ongoing coaching, supervision and continued education of a certification program is what will guarantee your success….which is exactly what I want for all of you!
Part 2: Certification and Advanced Mentorship Program- to receive your Gentle Sleep Coach certification and be eligible for all the benefits you must complete the Basic Training, pass the exam and begin to work with 3 pro-bono cases.
In the GSC Certification and Advanced Mentorship Program you will have:
- Continued Clinical Group Supervision (where you can present cases and ask business questions)
- Ongoing Continued Education (4 free classes a year will be offered) so you are always learning and keeping abreast of new research and topics related to sleep.
- Continued access to the membership site AND the community social network (which has proven to be invaluable to the current GSCs) where you can share resources, get support, advice and good-old camaraderie from your fellow GSCs!
- Your business listed on sleeplady.com to receive referrals from sleepless families in your corner of the world!
- Business building opportunities as I partner and collaborate with bigger companies which will result in you receiving referrals.
ALL CLASSES WILL BE RECORDED (so it’s 100% OK if you can’t show up for a particular class). Of course the more classes you attend the more connected you will feel to the community and the more questions you can ask.
All applicants who are accepted in to the program and enroll will be given a detailed class schedule.
Wondering how much time to set aside?
I would count on approximately 90 minutes per class (some weeks there are up to 3 classes a week) in addition to the time it will take you to review the class content posted on the membership site. You will be able to review, read and work on the content in between classes.
When I started the first sleep coach training program over three years ago, I never dreamed that three other programs would be created after mine. I am truly flattered. I do, however, think it is important for you to know some of the key differences in my program from the others. Below are just a few of the program features that are exclusive to the Gentle Sleep Coach Program:
