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

How do I earn my relationship coach certification?

It's recommended to attend live through Zoom for the most interaction and support; however, watching the recording is also acceptable for those who are unable to attend because of different time zones and schedule conflicts.

2-You must submit three 20 minute mock coaching sessions to demonstrate your coaching skills with one couple.

3-You must provide 12 hours of relationship coaching spread out evenly over two couples. Case notes documenting each session will be required.
