let us answer your questions about becoming a life coach


What is The Modern Life Coach School? 

The Modern Life Coach School (TMLCS) was founded by Cynthia Garcia, a celebrity nutritionist and life coach. As the world we live in continues to change drastically, she realized that the world of coaching was perfectly created for a world that no longer exists.

She realized that most of what we call “life coaching” or “personal development” is just a distraction for deeply rooted pain and feelings of unworthiness.

In addition, no life coaching school was addressing the deeper need for support around mental health and trauma, and other modern-day concerns in this new world we live in. So, current coaches don't feel confident and people wanting to be coaches are afraid to take the leap.

An educator for over 20 years and an innovator in the field of coaching, Cynthia decided to do something about this and The Modern Life Coach School was born.

At The Modern Life Coach School, we focus on Story-Based Coaching and teaching new world concepts that are cutting edge and get your clients results - fast. The old way of doing things doesn't work anymore. It's time for a revolution in the field of life coaching and we are the only school offering that.

The Certified Life Coach (CLC) Program at The Modern Life Coach School is a 6-month online, experiential certification program for ambitious go-getters who want to create a meaningful, highly profitable business or grow their existing coaching business with the power of Story-Based Coaching.

what is story-based coaching™? 

Story-Based Coaching™ combines narrative psychology, positive psychology, and neuroscience into one powerful coaching method that's suited for the modern world we live in.

It is a modern, mindful, experiential approach that helps people get unstuck and create real change, real fast through rewriting their stories about themselves, others, and the world to create new possibilities and better results.

Story is the operating system of our brains and the stories you tell are the building blocks of your life.

Our internal narratives are driving our thinking and therefore placing limitations around our ability and capacity to change.

As a coach, it’s critical to understand how stories shape our lives – for good and bad. It’s also crucial that you learn how to rewrite them so they don’t keep you stuck.

Story-Based Coaching™ gets to the root cause of challenges and pain points so people create results that last in a shorter amount of time.

Through changing the meaning of our stories, unbearable pain and past trauma can be transformed into points of deep connection, healing, and insight to create the life you’ve always dreamed of.

Story-Based Coaching™ is the proven coaching method that removes the guesswork from coaching so you know exactly what to do.

When does the program start, how long does it last, and what is the format? 

The Certified Life Coach (CLC) Program is 6 months long.

Each week you can now look forward to exciting content to upgrade your mindset, your career, and your life! Each week, you’ll dive into a newly released, streaming video class. You’ll take what you learn in that class and practice it throughout the week in the real-world.

On Thursdays at 12pm Pacific, there is a live Coaching Lab where you will put what you learned into practice. This approach builds confidence and makes learning an adventure that’s fun, engaging, exhilarating, and empowering! More importantly, it prepares you for real-world scenarios and real-world success.

There is a monthly live Business Building Lab on a Tuesday at 12pm Pacific.

Every Coaching Lab & Business Building Lab is recorded in case you can’t make it live or you just want to watch it again.

We take a break every 4th week of the program for “Recess”. This will give you white space to integrate and implement what you’re learning or just take some time off.

All of the content is 100% online so you can access and work through it at your convenience whether that’s on the go or relaxing from the comfort of your own home.

What are the concepts taught at The Modern Life Coach School?

We dive deep into the 3 pillars required to become a modern-day, confident, successful life coach:

1. Story - First you discover how to rewrite the old stories that hold you back using the revolutionary new Story-Based Coaching Method that’s only taught here. Story is the operating system of our brains and the stories you tell are the building blocks of your life. The stories you tell yourself about your self create your self. So if you finally want to change for good, and help your clients do the same, then you must start by getting unstuck through rewriting your stories.

2. Self - Next, you will begin to explore what’s possible for your life. And spoiler alert… it truly is everything. Once you embrace what’s possible for you and you get clear on the future you know you want to live, then you can create the SELF you need to be to embody that future. You’ll design a life based on your future not your past. By going through this process for yourself first, it will make it much more powerful as you coach your clients on doing the same since you’ll be speaking from experience. And you will serve your clients as an example of what’s possible.

3. Success - Finally, you'll enjoy the successful life and business you've imagined using a powerful Business Building Blueprint and story-based marketing so selling doesn't feel slimy or sleazy. You’ll finally enjoy a life of freedom, purpose, and deep meaning. You’ll have a life where you feel like you are seen, you are heard, and you matter. Where others look up to you and recognize you as the leader you are. Where you’re making a contribution and an impact on the world so you leave a legacy.

I’m concerned I won’t make back my tuition investment. Can you guarantee I will?

Is The Modern Life Coach School affiliated with ICF or any other agency? 

It’s important to note that the coaching industry is entirely unregulated. There is no governing body and no licensing requirements. There are, however, agencies and organizations that attempt to push their own guidelines and styles of coaching. The ICF (International Coaching Federation) or any other agency for that matter, has no legal parameters they have to adhere to or that you have to adhere to just because you’re a coach.

There are a LOT of high-profile coaches who are highly paid and highly effective and who haven’t gone through the ICF. While the ICF and additional agencies have done, and continue to do, some good work, the mission of The Modern Life Coach School is to move the life coaching industry into the modern-day and away from outdated and incomplete coaching concepts. The ICF is focused on basic core competencies like “Establishing the Coaching Agreement”, “Establishing Trust and Intimacy with the Client”, “Active Listening”, and “Powerful Questioning”. At TMLCS we believe those basics are good but that they simply do not meet the needs of the modern-day world we live in. Those needs are bigger and deeper than this.

At TMLCS our coaches go far beyond the basics to get to the limiting beliefs people have that makes it difficult to change or enjoy the life they desire. We go beyond thoughts and feelings and move into narrative psychology and neuroscience to help our clients understand themselves and the actions they take so they can finally create change for good. Your clients will hire you because of this.

Because of these things, we are not an approved school with the ICF. 

The Certified Life Coach program through TMLCS is accredited with the
Association for Coaching at the Accredited Award in Coach Training level.
