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. After running a successful health and nutrition coaching school for over a decade, Cynthia couldn't help but notice the shortcomings in the life coach industry.

Coaches were being taught basic and outdated coaching concepts but they had no real understanding of how to put them all together and coach clients.

Even worse, they had no real step-by-step plan for creating a business that didn't involve technical setups, pricing confusion, or what to even offer. This meant most coaches just gave up!

This is not okay. In a world where so many people need coaching, we have to do better. Cynthia strongly believes in the difference coaching can make after it quite literally transformed her entire life. 

So, she decided to correct the shortcomings of the industry to help new and established coaches create a life and business so good they're only jealous of themselves with a step-by-step coaching method that gets clients results fast and a done-for-you business system to help you make money with no guesswork!

It's time for a revolution in the field of life coaching and we are the only school offering that.

The Certified Identity-Based Life Coach (CIBLC) 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 Identity-Based Coaching.


what is identity-based coaching™? 

Identity-Based Coaching™  combines narrative psychology, neuroscience, and positive psychology to rewrite the old stories that keep you stuck and create a new identity that pulls you toward an exciting new future!

Most life coaches focus on habit change.

But the REAL key to change doesn’t lie in what you DO. It lies in who you BE.

Let's say you have a client who wants to make more money. Their identity is someone who “wants more money” so they’re stuck in a place of always wanting more money.


They buy the courses, watch the YouTube videos, and follow the programs - for a week until they stop.

It’s not a lack of willpower, it’s their identity.

No matter what they DO, they can never BE the person they want to be.

They see themselves as a failure and you as a bad coach. Ouch!

But with Identity-Based Coaching, the focus is on changing who you ARE first so what you DO is simply second nature.

So, in the above example, this person would now identify as someone who already has “more money” which means, they act accordingly and naturally do what that person would do.

It's easier and more fun so your client gets results fast and sings your praises all over the internet!

This is the future of life coaching and you can be a part of it!

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

The Certified Identity-Based Life Coach (CIBLC) 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 Thursday 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.

You 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.

Or... take all three! They're all included in your tuition!

Plus, you have lifetime access to everything in the course so as you grow (personally and in your business) you'll always have amazing content to lead, guide, and support you.


How much is tuition?

Do you have a refund policy?

Yes! At TMLCS, we offer not ONE but TWO guarantees.

We're so confident you'll be successful within 12 months of graduating from the Identity-Based Life Coach Certification Program that if you don't earn back at least your initial investment, we'll pay you the difference of the two amounts - up to the total cost of tuition.

At The Modern Life Coach School, we are committed to building a community of the right people to support our mission. We believe you're either all in (and we'll be right there by your side) or you're all out. Because of this, we offer a risk-free money back guarantee.

If by 5pm Pacific U.S. time up to 7 days after you enroll you don’t feel this program is right for you, simply email us at hello@themodernlifecoachschool.com and we will refund 100% of your money, no questions asked!

Please note that eligibility for a refund has a firm deadline and also applies to payment plans, which means you will be responsible for all payments after the refund deadline of 7 days after enrollment.


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.  It's an organization we feel supports the forward-movement of the coaching industry and we're excited to be a part of that effort.
