Frequently Asked Questions

What if I miss a Zoom call during training?
All group Zoom calls will be recorded for you to reference later. However, you must participate in at least three of the four monthly Zoom calls to obtain the certification. If you are interested in making up a missed Zoom call, you can book a one-on-one session with Dr. Kutsko for an additional fee.
When can I begin training?
Soma Coaching Foundations is offered the first week of every month. This course provided the foundational coaching skills you will need for all the wellness courses and Life Coaching.

We welcome all levels of experience to join, whether you are an established counselor who would like to expand your skills or you have never coached before. The Soma Coaching Foundations module will cover all the basic principles you need to get started.
