S-T-R-E-T-C-H! pushed me in the coaching practice. I gained confidence and experience in coaching, while building strong connections with my classmates throughout the course.

Phil Joudrey is an amazing teacher. He will take you places in this course that you didn’t know you could go. And you will be supported and encouraged every step of the way while coming to understand some fundamental aspects of yourself as a coach.

Great starting point for anyone who would like to see how coaching works and how to stretch yourself to achieve more!

The Mindfulness Coaching School has been an amazing resource for me on many levels. I took S-T-R-E-T-C-H! when Ann Marie suggested it would be a great addition to what we’d been working on in our coaching sessions. The class was so inspiring I decided to become a coach myself! I’ve taken 6 classes already and plan to take more. I love Ann Marie’s style of teaching; the academic aspect, the mindful/spiritual piece and the opportunity to work with other like-minded people during homework sessions. Ann Marie is a bottomless source of knowledge and inspiration and I am forever grateful!

It was a different type of MCS class and yet one of the most powerful ones. All classes were filled with practice, real time coaching and wisdom that can be applied in everyday life. This class is for coaches and people who want to develop their communication skills, empathy, listen deeply and speak skilfully. It’s also a class to learn a compassionate approach towards yourself, others and life in general. Read more

I’ve been a therapist for years now, but still get the jitters every time I begin to work with a new client (probably the “fixer” in me). It was a joy to watch Ann-Marie in action [during Skillful Means: The Coaching Skill Set] and realize that we don’t need to feel like we have all the answers for the client!

STRETCH does just that…it stretches your understanding of what a coach is/does, it stretches your thoughts and insights about yourself and your journey and it stretches your bonds with your classmates to learn from their collective experiences and knowledge. This was an enlightening and thoroughly enjoyable class that really pushed you to think from a variety of perspectives and to also really think about who you are, the story you tell and why. I am sad it is over.

This class exceeded all my expectations. A must have class for all coaches, no matter what your path is! This was my first detailed exposure to NVC and I fell in Love! Communication is basic and the most important part of relationship, connection and belonging. This opens up deeper level of connection which leads towards love and peace. Srdjan is one of the finest human being I came across. His calm, positive and joyous presence was reflective of NVC in practice. In each class we were able to learn by observing him being ‘NVC carrier’ for all 90 mins. Being a master of NVC he created safe place for learning. His modesty, kindness and compassion not only made it easy for us to open up and participate in class he held is in safe place and made us feel supported. He was able to bring best from all of us. He made learning joyous and excited. No matter what we brought to table, he took us forward from where we were and utilized every sentence spoken into a learning experience. I have no d… Read more

What seemed apparent in the course description [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness] cannot contain the experience of going on this journey with Ann-Marie and a class full of incredible people. Because of this course, I’m a better coach and a wiser human.

This course [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness] was an invitation to revisit my meditation practice and also to see how I can implement such a key tool with my own clients.
