What our coaches say about the
BALM approach

"Being certified as a BALM® Family Recovery Life Coach and a BALM® Family Recovery Facilitation Specialist, I have received far more referrals and clients as classes are often a desirable entry point for families. 
I now have the opportunity to expand what I can do for families through partnering with treatment centers and addiction specialists to offer BALM® courses and coaching, while in return increasing my client base.
Being able to offer courses in-person, as well as one-on-one online coaching, ensures I do not get burnt out doing just one thing. 
Having this dual certification is a win-win!"

"As I entered the coach training program, I thought that I had myself under control, and I was quite sure that everyone in the program was going to benefit from my years of recovery knowledge and experience. I was in complete denial of the amount of work that was left to be done in my own heart. I was reactive, unpredictable, easily frustrated, and prone to angry outburst, but I had been this way for so long, I just thought it was the best I could do, and the people in my life were just going to have to accept me this way. The 7 Steps to BALM
® changed all of this for me."

® brought me so much compassion for my children, especially after learning the stages of change. BALM® has changed my life and relationships. By the grace of God, my son will be 6 years sober in September and my daughter 8 years in August."

"Participating firsthand in how these tools work as well as witnessing the client ‘‘aha’’ moments that come as a result have been awe-inspiring. Learning these effective communications and coaching skills has not only helped in my ability to coach but also in my communication with my loved ones and others outside of the coaching environment."
