Why Become Certified as a Sex Coach?
Becoming a certified practitioner enables you to begin seeing clients as a Certified Somatica Sex and Relationship Coach. Not all students who take the Somatica Core Training are interested in relationship or sex coach certification, and some people take the training solely for personal growth.
To become a professional in a helping career, you need experienced oversight to ensure you are a knowledgeable, aware, and capable coach. This is what the sex coach certification process offers you. Whether you take the certification path of (1) retaking the training as an advanced student or (2) joining group supervision – Celeste, Danielle, your group supervisors, and the leadership team will give you the personal guidance you need to be the best coach you can be.

In practice sessions, you will get a chance to solidify your proficiency with each tool. For each session, your practice client needs to fill out and turn in an evaluation form. Practice clients can be fellow students, friends, or your current clients (if you already have a coaching practice). Before the next module begins, you will send in a self-evaluation of how you feel you did in your practice sessions. Your forth self-evaluation will be due 3 months after the training.

Alternatively, you can hire Danielle or Celeste or an approved Somatica Supervisor for individual supervision. At least 10 of those supervision sessions need to be with Celeste and/or Danielle, either in group or individual sessions. In supervision, you can bring in client cases you are working on for feedback. However, you will also need to practice giving sessions to Celeste, Danielle, an approved supervisor, or a fellow student in at least 5 of those sessions. In addition, you have to complete 100 client Somatica Sessions – free or paid. These are the sessions you will be talking about in your supervision sessions.
- Participate in a Certification Exam* – after completing the Somatica Core Training, finishing all your evaluations and self-reflections, and either retaking the Core Training as an Advanced Student or participating in your Supervision Certification, you can schedule the sex coach certification exam. In this one-hour session, Celeste or Danielle will act as your client. During your session, you will need to demonstrate proficiency in the basic tools and philosophy of the Somatica Method. If you pass the sex coach certification exam, you can call yourself a Certified Somatica Sex and Relationship Coach and practice as such. If you don’t pass, you will be given feedback as to why and will be able to retake the exam at a later date.
