What Our Students Say

Lyn and Teresa are compassionate, conscientious mentors. They are flexible…working with me and my schedule which greatly reduced stress, making the journey towards certification relaxed and enjoyable. The Three Principles have not only greatly benefited my professional journey but have made a huge influence in my personal life and relationships.”

Pamela Pickering-Anderson, Holistic Registered Nurse and Nurse Coach

It’s been really really powerful and very moving. It’s gotten me to places I was hoping to get to, and maybe didn’t know I could get to.”

Dr. Anne Curtis, Advancing Holistic Health coaching student

What I have found through the course work is the innate ability to stay more centered all of the time. I stay clear in my thought processes and move forward. Periods of challenge don’t really exist any more, it’s just one transition from moment to moment, life event to life event, and it allows me to look at things more realistically, choose better paths to more focused outcomes, and enjoy the life ride.”

Isabel Bruce, Registered Nurse and Board Certified Nurse Coach
