What do previous students say about the FRCA relationship coach certification program? 

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

3 Common Objections To Enrolling In FRCA & Our Answers

I know life can get hectic, and your schedule is often packed with responsibilities and commitments. However, this course is not just another item on your to-do list; it's an investment in your future. By dedicating time to attend this course, you are prioritizing you and making a conscious effort to strengthen your career.

Also, the first half of the course only requires 2-3 hours/week and the second half only requires 4-5 hours/week.

2. I can learn relationship coaching on my own.

While it's true you can improve your knowledge of relationship coaching on our own, there's something truly valuable about seeking guidance from experts and learning from their knowledge and experiences. This course is led by Dr. Wyatt (licensed psychologist) and he's helped thousands of couples improve their relationship. He will be passing on his insights and experiences to you. Also, you need to become certified as a relationship coach from an ICF accredited institution to build your reputation and FRCA provides that.

3. I can't afford it.

Investing in your future and the future of couples you'll be helping is a wise investment. While there may be a financial commitment involved, the value you'll gain from this course far exceeds the cost. Think about the long-term benefits of a revitalized and thriving career helping couples stay married – the joy, love, and commitment because of your efforts. The cost of FRCA pales in comparison to the priceless rewards it can bring to your fulfillment. Plus, if you charge $100/session the program pays for itself in the first 25 sessions.
