Our Vision Is To Train Evolutionary Coaches
Who Are Heart-Centered Specialists In Lifestyle Change,
Resiliency & Whole-Person Wellness
The Quantum Coaching Method™ model supports you in all aspects of your life and work. We call this the Coach’s Journey which begins with Soul-Centered Self-Care™ at its core.
One of the Core Principles of Quantum Coaching is “The More Work You Do, The More Work You Can Do.” We call this the Parallel Path. Coaches who consistently engage in their own personal work are the most effective and attractive to potential clients who are seeking to partner with an authentic coach they can trust and who is “real” and who “gets them.”
This is why Quantum Coaching Essentials™ is designed for you to experience the very same processes you will be using with your clients. This creates ease and flow in coaching and helps you work from an intuitive and consciously connected place. From here you can support and challenge clients and co-create a vital coaching partnership that keeps the client front and center where they belong.
It is possible for you to develop ease, proficiency, and confidence in coaching clients at a level that supports them making the inner Quantum Shifts needed for change and to re-empower themselves!
Does our Vision for You Align With Yours?
We will hold the vision of your greatness as a coach until you can embrace it! We will teach YOU to coach skillfully and intuitively. No scripts!
This includes not only dealing with client issues, but with your own internal limiting beliefs that get in the way of clean coaching:
- Ever felt the pressure to deliver amazing results, breakthroughs, aha moments, or huge life transformations?
- Do you have clients who don’t seem to make progress and you’re unsure where to go next?
- How do you handle clients who want a “quick fix” after years of being off track?
- Do you get stuck yourself on what to ask next?
- Are you unclear about working with clients dealing with the same issues you haven’t figured it out for yourself yet?
These are real challenges coaches face every day and Quantum Coaching Essentials™ gives you real solutions to handle them. We don’t give you scripts. Instead, we offer you a masterful coaching tool kit which gives you ready access to the most critical coaching tool of all… YOU!!!!

Why This Training Certification Program Is So Powerful
Nested Within The Quantum Coaching Certification™ Training
Are TWO Fundamental Experiential Pathways
Quantum Coaching Essentials™ (Part I)
- The Core Essentials (8 weeks: 32 live training hours): The heart of this training walks you through the fundamentals of creating coaching relationships that yield results. Classes and assignments focus on specific learning and experience outcomes. We work though the initial phases of coaching and move into more complex challenges for which you learn and practice the skills and tools needed to expand your proficiency levels. (See more specific list of what is covered in class below.*)
- Buddy Coaching (8 hours of 16 hours-see JourneyWork below): Weekly coaching exchange with assigned buddies including work with a Certified Quantum Senior-Level Coach where you are working on concepts learned in class as well as having the opportunity to support one another on particular goals created at the beginning of the class.
- “Take the Leap” Practicum™ (10 Weeks: 20 live training hours) These sessions with Marilena include in-depth review of the ICF core competencies and NBCHWC Job Tasks, coaching ethics, coaching processes along with coaching demos. Significant time is allotted for the opportunity for each member to coach and be coached live in a completely safe and caring environment where direct feedback and learning can take place… Each coach will get two opportunities to coach in class and will be given verbal & written feedback. In addition, each coach will receive three one-to-one Mentor Coaching Sessions (see below).
- One-to-One Mentor Coaching (3 live hours) Fine tune your coaching and ability to demonstrate required proficiencies during three one-to-one consultations with our Certification Specialist and Master Coach. You will review your own recorded coaching sessions and gain insight on how to make improvements in your coaching techniques.

Quantum JourneyWork (Part II)
- UnLayered: DeJunking Body, Soul, Spirit, Space™ (10 live training hours + 4 Buddy Coaching Hours) Bring alignment to both your inner and outer environments as we examine and release the clutter held in various areas and multiple levels of our lives that no longer serves you. Unearth the patterns and beliefs that feed overwhelm, busyness and keep you separate from focusing on your true calling. Learn this process for yourself as well as for your clients.
- Soul Gardening: (10 live training hours + 4 Buddy Coaching Hours) This program is the culmination of your training program. Here, you are invited to deepen your relationship with the most important part of your coaching toolbox… YOU. It is your Soul Garden where your intuition resides and your authenticity shines. The practices introduced will ”up” your Thrive-ability Factor… and free you to flow and flourish as the resilient creator you are and help you support your clients more fully as well.
PRACTICE LAUNCHING - PERSONAL BRANDING- RELATIONSHIP BUILDING
Learn how to leverage your Coaching Tools to Build Your Programs & Practice.

Marilena works with you on a deeper level to move through your blocks and limiting beliefs so you can get out of your own way. Free yourself up to have a soul-sourced practice that reflects your journey, your gifts and your passion!

Here’s What Some Recent Graduates Are Saying...
Marilena’s courses are never cookie-cutter classes. You never feel like she’s just going through the motions, running you through the content. Instead, she adapts to what the class needs and to your personal challenges, creating a powerful, safe class environment. The handouts that include actual questions that I can use with clients are gold to me. Being able to refer to those questions (and meditations and exercises) have already been a huge help to me as I move forward.
This course and its teachers took me to a whole other level, from where I started to where I am, it’s like I am a completely different person. I learned from every single person in the class. Now I understand how to hold sacred space for my clients and support them on their journey. I have the tools to help them dig further within themselves to find the answers they are looking for. This is one program/class I will always remember and hold very dearly. Thank you for this journey
Quantum Coaching to me is about teachers who are connected to and know their students. They really dig in and find ways to challenge you to grow. We are like a family of coaches, which for me was so amazing as I could find something in every one of them that was just like me. I have finally been able to stop giving advice to my clients and I find that I guide them more in my sessions. Last week my client designed her own action steps! It really was awesome and amazing and I thank you for having me on this journey with all of you.
Marilena is truly a master at asking the tough questions, listening and guiding you to achieve your goals. Thank you, Marilena for being the absolute catalyst in my life. Your support and candor is helping me move forward with confidence. There are not enough words to express my gratitude for your unconditional support during this course. Thank you for making me a better coach.
Christine Boutross, HHC, NBC-HWC
This program has brought me from a place where I very much doubted my ability to where I firmly believe “I got this.” I shifted from “where am I going to get clients?” to a place of “I’m just going to put my beliefs out there and know they will come to me.” I wish it could be longer because I just want more. I am absolutely thrilled to have been part of the process and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with so many incredible people.
Darcy Huggins, CHC
Quantum Coaching improved my coaching skills exponentially. Marilena’s presentation of ideas, materials and techniques are brilliant, and her method of teaching serves as an ideal model for coaching. In using the Quantum Coaching technique, I am better able to identify my clients’ needs, guide them in overcoming challenges that keep them stuck, and lead them towards taking meaningful action that results in permanent change, leaving my clients feeling satisfied and accomplished.
