For years, it has been my dream to create the S.W.A.T. Institute — a long-distance coaching school that encompasses every aspect of a woman's health: Physical, Emotional, Mental, Financial, Relational, and Spiritual.
As I compared other coaching programs on the market today, I noticed a common and huge flaw: A lack of true integration of the body, mind, and spirit.
How could a life coach be a "LIFE" coach if she was primarily trained in project management and knew little about health or nutrition? Wouldn't she ideally need to be educated on all areas of life? Shouldn't she be able to help you achieve great physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and financial health? (And has she done it herself?)
Then, I thought about my own "education"— about how many different programs and courses I've taken just to feel like I have a grasp on it all. (And my learning never ends!)
Why aren't psychotherapists specifically trained in holistic nutrition, fitness regimens, and herbal remedies since these things are scientifically proven to alleviate a magnitude of mental disorders?
Why aren't financial advisors prepped for the emotional distress folks sometimes feel when dealing with money matters?
Why isn't "nutritional education" part of the personal training programs, or vice versa?
Why are so many nutritionists overweight? So many personal trainers single and broke?
Why aren't life coaches taught how to manage, market, promote and succeed at their own new practice?
…A lack of integration!
I knew that if I found the right team of advisors—all experts in different fields—to help me, we would create a coaching program that would integrate all aspects of health, fitness, relationships, finances, and spirituality!…The S.W.A.T. Institute was born!
