Join us and Master the Art of Transformation Through Pleasure™.
Become an in-demand Sex & Relationship Coach
and watch your own life transform in the process.

We all want more pleasure in life — but few know the secrets to achieve it. Help from a professional is often the key to unlocking more enjoyable sex, intimate connections, and deeper relationships. That’s where you come in – by getting trained in the best sex and relationship coach training.

As a certified coach, you can help your clients increase intimacy, overcome relational barriers, and create a fulfilling life. But before you start making a difference for your clients through your own practice, you will need to enroll in a somatic sexology training program that gives you the tools and credibility to help others. 

Somatica Institute offers a prestigious pathway to certification for aspiring sex and relationship coaches. The training also provides tools to enhance the practices of already-licensed professionals. It’s our goal to empower you to embark on a profound educational journey that leads not only to professional certification but also to a more fulfilling and financially fruitful career.

What Is The Somatica Sex and Relationship Coach Training?

Using the latest neuroscience research that tells us how people grow, we developed the Somatica Method – a holistic, experiential, and pleasure-based approach to sex and relationship coaching.

Through the certification program you learn to use the Somatica Method to help your clients better express their emotional needs, move past shame, and live more connected and erotic lives.

Who Should Enroll?

This training is designed for you – whether you’re interested in fulfilling a lifelong career goal or enhancing your current therapy or coaching practice. You will also experience transformation in your own relationships. 

Aspiring Sex and Relationship Coaches

Do all of your friends reach out to you for sex and relationship advice? Our program provides you with the necessary tools to take your interpersonal skills and interests to the next level.

At the Somatica Institute, you will move through a comprehensive sex coach certification process which will prepare you to help clients make meaningful changes to their relationships in the real world. As a graduate, you are also eligible to receive the sexologist certification from the American Board of Sexology (ABS)

Licensed Professionals and Practicing Coaches

Are you a licensed therapist, or a practicing sex, intimacy and relationship coach? Are you looking to incorporate more tools to better serve your clients?

Regardless of your professional background or goals, the Somatica Sex and Relationship Coach Training will help you empower your clients and expand your business in new ways. We are also approved by California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists (CAMFT) to offer CEs to current LMFTs, LPCCs, and CCSWs.

What Does The Training and Certification Process Include? 

The Somatica Training curriculum is comprised of 12 modules:

  • Core Curriculum (modules 1-6): The core curriculum starts your journey of personal transformation, self-awareness, and the confidence you need to be a masterful coach. You’ll learn a variety of essential tools, including deepening emotional and sexual connection, overcoming sexual dysfunctions, and empowered dating. 
  • Advanced Curriculum (modules 7-12): Designed for aspiring coaches and licensed professionals, the advanced curriculum will solidify your skills and confidence as a coach and teach you how to build and maintain a successful practice. 

This sex coach training program is designed for busy professionals. Both the core and advanced curriculum are six-month immersions. Each module will take place over three days (Friday to Sunday) once a month from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. PT and 11:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. PT.

What Is the Certification Pathway?

To become certified in the Somatica Method, you must:

  • Complete the six core modules, which include 90 hours of interactive training, home-study assignments, practice sessions, and assigned readings.
  • Engage in 12 experiential practice sessions with other students, clients, colleagues, friends, and/or partners outside of class. 
  • Complete the six advanced modules  — another 90 hours of life instruction where you will receive personalized feedback. During the advanced training you can attend optional marketing and office hours, which offer more personalized time with the founders. You can receive ample additional support in business and marketing as well as client supervision.
  • Pass the hour-long final exam, during which you will present a recorded client session to your instructors, who will evaluate you on criteria such as attunement, empathy, and de-shamifying. 

You can begin seeing clients after the first six months of training, and become certified as a sex and relationship coach by the Somatica Institute and the ABS after you complete your advanced modules. Join the global Somatica alumni network after the core training, and be added to the Somatica certified sex coach directory as soon as you are certified.

Dr. Recommend Somatica
Steve, MD - Online Somatica Training Graduate, 2020

I want to express my deepest personal and professional gratitude to the both of you. I am sincerely blown away by the profound impact my experience with the Somatica modules have had on me personally, in my relationship with my wife, and with my patients in my primary care practice.

Simply put, you have changed my life.

For the first time ever, I am truly getting to know myself and my wife, and to see a much more enjoyable way to serve my patients through what you have taught me in Somatica. I cannot envision a time in my life when I will not be living out of, teaching, or be connected to Somatica.
