What do previous students of the relationship coach certification program have to say? 


relationship coach certification

Becoming a relationship coach under Dr. Wyatt Fisher's certification program was easily one of the most life changing and rewarding decisions I've ever made. The material was clearly outlined, presented well, and practiced extensively. I felt prepared and formed a connection with other coaches and Dr. Fisher himself. It was a very personal and focused program that gave each coach a plan with detailed steps and Dr. Fisher was always a call or email away. Dr. Fisher has given me tools to help others and it's even changed my relationship with my own partner in the best way. Thank you for investing your time and studies with me Dr. Fisher! -Ali Isdaner
