What if you could help traumatized people without digging up their past?

Forward-Facing® Coaching Certification gives you the opportunity to transform people’s lives from reaction to intention without reliving painful past experiences. 

Dr. Eric Gentry, one of the world’s most respected trauma therapists, has said for years that 80% of what he does with his clients can be done by a paraprofessional. 

In 2020, he and Jenny Brackman spent a year synthesizing that 80% into a standardized coaching protocol.

 

Now we have coaches across the world, helping their clients experience a degree of post-traumatic growth they never thought possible

 

 

 

Our training program is unlike any other when it comes to trauma-informed coaching.

Stamp of Approval

There’s a lot of certification programs out there. Most certify knowledge. We’re different. We certify competency. We stand behind you and provide ongoing support and mentorship.

 

Self-Paced

You’ll progress through this program at your own pace with full consideration of your current training and life experience.
