In January, Southwest Institute of Healing Arts celebrates the art and business of Life Coaching. 

As interest in holistic modalities grow, people from all walks of life are increasingly seeking out this powerful modality to create major positive change in their lives. SWIHA is so proud of the many talented coaches our program has guided! Our graduates work hard to identify their niche and style, cultivate a toolbox of proven techniques, and build a profitable private practice.


Here are thirty of our favorite quotes from SWIHA Life Coaches!

I use the clients imagination to create the best possible outcome for them.” -Linda Bennett, SWIHA’s Hypnotherapy Program Director

  • “Those breakthroughs so cleverly disguised as breakdowns create some of the most real, authentic and vulnerable moments that can leave a person changed in all the best ways.

The best Life Coaches lead by example!” -Sharon Rose, The Soul Stylist
