Who Are We?

What They're Saying

"I completed my Certified Positive Psychology Coach® Qualification through School of Coaching Mastery and was also coached and mentored by Julia. She is not only an exceptional coach, teacher and mentor, but she is truly masterful and conducts her school and practice with the highest ethics and standards. When you have achieved a credential through Julia's school, you know that you have the skills to be a world class coach. I thoroughly enjoyed being taught and coached by her and deeply value our relationship. My Positive Psychology credential boosted both my personal and professional life and was a truly pivotal point for me." Paula Facci
"What I love most about positive psychology coaching is the positivity itself. So many times in life people only tell us what we are doing wrong. With positive psychology coaching - we get to celebrate all the things the person is doing right, and it has very powerful results!” Krista Harris
"I was interested in (the SCM Coach 100 Business Success) program and so thought it would be fun to sign up 2 months ago. The response has been phenomenal - In two months I have coached 52 new people and taken on 7 new paying clients. On top of this there are 36 trial sessions already booked in my schedule for the next month and new ones come in every day." Krissy Jackson

What the Data Say About SCM Results

Is this coach training program effective?

Coach training schools that guarantee success - such as promising you'll make $100,000 in your first year of coaching - tend to be scams. They know coaches want to be successful and make false promises. Look for a track record, instead.

Based on data we collected from our students:

  • 100% of our recent graduates were coaching professionally.
  • Of those, 75% were coaching exclusively. The other 25% offered coaching services along with other professional services, such as consulting and training.
  • 100% of Coach 100 participants who completed their program had coaching clients.
  • Of those, 87% had full coaching practices (meaning their client rosters were full).
  • Some Coach 100 participants filled their coaching practices even before finishing the program.
  • Compare the above data with data we collected from from over 3,000 coaches who were not SCM members: 79% said they were dissatisfied with their coaching careers.
  • Yes, although no school can predict your income, because that is based on your actions, this program is effective at helping previous coaches become professionals with coaching careers. Not every coaching school can say that truthfully. So don't choose the wrong school!
