"I am just coming to the end of my Holistic Life Coach training with the Radiant Health Institute. I finished the actual training in a few weeks time – but the practicums (hour-long practice sessions with clients) and other assigned work have taken additional time, as well they should. Twenty practicum hours may seem like a lot – but this, of course, is where the real learning happens. It is in these initial sessions that I was able to put my training to use with the full support of Dez and other trainers at RHI who are there to answer questions and give advice at a moment’s notice. This makes the learning process thorough, productive, and thrilling. My training with the Radiant Health Institute was one of the best experiences I’ve had in years. I learned a lot about how to be an effective coach; but I also learned how to be a better parent and friend. Dez is a wonderful teacher in every conceivable way. In truth, during the course of our training, she taught me as much about being a better person as she taught me about being a better coach. She constantly emphasized active listening, as well as maintaining full confidence that each and every client is the authority on her/his own life, and that our job, as coaches, is simply to help them find their inner compass with 'positivity and professionalism.' This practice affected even the way I deal with my own children. It must also be said that Dez is one of the most organized and accessible people I know - always willing to help however she can. If you have the chance to work with her, don't miss it."
