Ever since I studied with Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy in 2015, I often get asked where I studied and would I recommend Beautiful You? Given that it’s been four years since I started my journey of becoming a Life Coach I thought it was about time that I shared my journey, experience and an honest review with you.Since there is so much that I want to share I thought it would be easier to break this post up into sections.
How I found Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy
I was 24 and working on a office job that I once loved, as time went on my work environment became very toxic and I was awaiting the arrival of my baby nephew which I was over the moon about but found myself going down a road of depression. My sisters pregnancy put a spotlight on what was important for me in my life and how my current job and environment were not supporting that and my core values.
I found myself seeking inspiration from other life coaches who were living a life on purpose, radiating health mentally and physically and sharing their message which I absolutely loved and longed for a life where I could do the same. I ended up sending a few messages asking how they got to where they are now and where they studied which is how I discovered Beautiful You. As I was reading through Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy’s website I knew it was the one for me and the decision was clear I just had to do it, now was my time.
I ended up becoming severely depressed and had to resign from my position without another job to go to as I knew I couldn’t stay any longer for my mental health. Ironically the day I resigned was also the day that I took the leap and signed up for Beautiful You. Life was starting to look up for me.
Why I chose the Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy
I absolutely loved the heart centred approach of the course. I wasn’t after a tafe course or something similar which felt very “sterile”, I was after something that would resonate with me and give me the skills and freedom to create my own business and life doing what I loved, helping other women. The modules that the academy covers gives you everything you to not only become a life coach but also create a successful business. The modules that are included in the course are:
- Module 1 – Intro to Life Coaching
- Module 2 – Coaching communication
- Module 3 – Coaching Engagement
- Module 4 – Coaching Goals
- Module 5 – The Coaching series
- Module 6 – Types of Coaching Goals
- Module 7 – Mindset Matters
- Module 8 – Beyond 1:1 coaching
- Module 9 – Your Ideal Clients
- Module 10 – Building your business
- Module 11 – Your Online Presence
- Module 12 – List building, launching and building relationships
- Module 13 – Public speaking
- Module 14 – Celebrating you
Pretty good modules right?
Within each module there is a team coaching call where there is two allocated times (as people from around the globe will be studying with you). If you can’t make the phone calls live, don’t stress as they are recorded and you are able to access and download them from the membership portal. If you can make the calls live I would highly recommend as it is a great time for you to ask any questions directly to Julie Parker the founder of Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy or the trainers and also build relationships with other coaches.
You will also receive a course manual which I found myself referring back to regularly and also a workbook which allows you to put pen to paper, dive deep and complete tasks for each module. Within the membership portal there is also section where you are able to complete questions (a requirement to become certified if you wish), receive feedback from trainers and also amazing resources such as interviews that relate to each module, over 150 reusable worksheets to enhance your life coaching work with clients and best of all outstanding support from the Beautiful You Trainers.
You are also given the opportunity to have a coaching buddy, which I would highly recommend and found invaluable. My buddy and I had regular fortnightly Skype or phone calls where we would coach each other, provide feedback, discuss our learnings and insights. You will also have access to a Facebook group which is just for your months intake eg, Feb intake, May or October. This facebook group allows you to connect, build relationships, also learn from others and arrange catch ups with other life coaches who may be within your area.
Beautiful You also holds Inspirational Meet ups, these meet ups are completely optional however, the locations that they are held at are absolutely divine with some being within Australia and others in other countries such as Paris, Hawaii, Vancouver etc. The in person meet-ups are a great chance for you to get a chance to hug, connect and meet your fellow trainee’s and trainers. Expect something beautiful and inspiring as there are also amazing guest speakers with previous speakers being Melissa Ambrosini, Rebecca Campbell, Angela Simpson, Lisa Messenger and Madison Hedlund just to name a few!
How long does the course go for?
The duration of the course is a 6 month in-depth course designed to train you to become an incredible life coach and also build the business of your dreams.
You will cover a module roughly every 2 weeks which includes the module in the workbook, worksheets to complete, lectures to listen to, guest interviews covering the topic and also your live training call.
I was working full time when I studied with Beautiful You and allowed roughly 5 hours a week to stay on top of each module and roughly another 1-1.5 hrs a fortnight for my coaching buddy phone calls.
I also loved saving a bit of time by downloading the lectures, interviews and live calls to my phone and listened to them during my commute to work or on my walks and I’m not going to lie, I find myself still turning to these amazing audio downloads for regular inspiration and drive.
Once you complete your studies with Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy you have the opportunity to become certified.
Please note: if you choose to not become certified it doesn’t mean that you can’t offer your services in exchange of money, you have still completed the course and it’s entirely unto you what you want to do with it – the beauty of running your own business!
If you have been following me lately you will see that I recently became certified. I made the choice to do this because I wanted to give myself that extra little bit of credit and I found myself craving the support and connection from BYCA and other coaches and I knew I wanted to become affiliated with such a well-respected brand that I truly believed in.
There are a few requirements to become certified and I encourage you to get clear on these once you start your studies so that you are aware of them, can complete everything that is required and don’t miss out on your chance to become certified. Once you become certified you receive a portfolio on Beaut
iful You’s website and also become part of a certified facebook group which allows you to connect and support other coaches from around the world.
Some final words
The Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy is so much more than just a life coaching course. I went through so much personal growth and transformation while undergoing this course and still to do this day.
The knowing that you don’t have to settle with working for someone else all of your life in a soul destroying job drives me every day to take actionable steps towards building my business with my end goal being that I don’t have to go work for someone else ever again and can create a life for myself and family which gives us the freedom that we crave.
Beautiful You definitely changed my life. I have met so many other beautiful coaches who have now become my friends and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Beautiful You to anyone.
