WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

JI M JERSEY

"Using the latest in research and drawing upon the expertise of senior stepfamily clinicians, the Stepfamily Coach Academy provides training for those who want to provide high-quality, well-informed support for stepmoms.

As a longtime expert on stepfamilies, I have long been concerned that so much “coaching” about stepfamilies is based on the (often-misguided) opinions of a few people. This training program, with clear systems in place for assessment of coaches and for ongoing supervision, stands as one of the few I can whole heartedly recommend."


DR. PATRICIA PAPERNOW,

Renowned Stepfamily Expert, Author of The Stepfamily Handbook, and Surviving and Thriving in Stepfamily Relationships


"The comprehensive curriculum, insightful guidance, and practical tools offered by the Stepfamily Coach Academy will equip you with the skills and confidence to make a meaningful impact in the lives of stepfamilies.

I highly recommend this coach certification program to anyone passionate about supporting and empowering stepfamilies."

I LOVE MY JOB!

JIM JER SEY

JIM JER SEY

Hey, I’m Cameron Normand, CEO of Stepfamily Solutions and founder of the Stepfamily Coach Academy. And I LOVE my job as a stepfamily coach. It’s the best career I could ask for.

I initially became a stepfamily coach purely so I could understand my own blended family dynamic. But once I did, I discovered my passion for helping other stepfamilies. So after more than 20 years as a successful lawyer and corporate executive working in national politics, I took the plunge and never looked back.

And while I'm fully confident in my career as a coach now, I definitely didn't start that way. I invested in my coaching journey during a really difficult time in my life. I was struggling as a stepmom and grasping at straws trying to find the answers.

Becoming a stepfamily coach opened my eyes to how much I could help others like me who were having stepfamily challenges. And I quickly found that helping other stepfamilies changed my life for the better, gave me a purpose, and allowed me to leave my career to work in this space full-time. I know it can change your life, too.

With more than 40% of Americans in a blended family, it's more important now than ever before for stepfamilies to receive high-quality, evidence-backed support from trained and qualified coaches.

When you coach, you'll make a difference in the lives of your clients every single day while creating income in a flexible career you can do from anywhere!

I hope you'll join us. I can't wait to see you in the Stepfamily Coach Academy!

Cameron

I believe in you! And I'll be there to guide you every step of the way.

I LOVE MY JOB!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We've got A's for your Q's

DO I NEED PRIOR COACHING EXPERIENCE?

It's helpful, but not at all necessary. The program is built to be comprehensive enough to stand on its own, but it can also be a wonderful supplement to your already existing life (or other) coaching practice.

WHAT IS THE TIME INVESTMENT?

Most of our students should spend 3-4 hours a week in our curriculum, videos, and supplemental readings. We'll have 1 - 1.5 hours per week of teaching and discussion, and you'll have homework, reading, and other assignments in between.

WHEN DO CLASSES START?

Classes (all held via Zoom) will be held weekly starting May 14th. We are hosting The Stepmom Summit April 25-28th, and encourage students to sign up and attend as pre-work for the program. (and as a bonus for enrolling, you'll receive the Ultimate Access Pass, worth $147)

ARE CLASSES LIVE? WHAT IF I CAN'T ATTEND IN PERSON?

Every session for the Founder's Class will be live. (another benefit to enrolling now!) But don't worry - we know you're busy, so if you can't make it live, we are recording every class and Q&A session.

HOW LONG IS THE PROGRAM?

Our certification program is 8-weeks long followed by an assessment week and final certification for a total of 10 weeks.

ARE THE COURSE VIDEOS CAPTIONED OR TRANSCRIBED?

We want the certification program to be accessible to absolutely everyone. So we will have captions and transcriptions available.

DO I HAVE TO BE A STEPPARENT TO COACH THEM?

While we feel like having the stepfamily experience is a huge advantage when you're coaching them, you don't necessarily have to be in one.

Our curriculum will give you the overview and substance to understand the unique challenges that stepfamilies face so that you can approach coaching them with knowledge and empathy.

WHAT IS THE COST INVESTMENT?

Many coaching programs charge well into the five figures for their certifications. While we're providing over $12,000 in value to our students, we also wanted to be sure the Academy was accessible to as many future coaches as possible.

So although we cannot guarantee future pricing, right now the investment is $1997 (there is a payment plan option available).

MY STEPFAMILY ISN'T PERFECT. HOW CAN I POSSIBLY COACH OTHERS?

Not having a "perfect" stepfamily is actually an asset for you as a coach. Your clients will value your experience and the fact that you've been in their shoes.

And to be clear . . . no stepfamily is perfect - and you don't have to have it all figured out. Getting certified will give you a ton of tools that you can apply in your own family while you learn to help others.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE PROGRAM?

Not gonna lie. This will take work. But the payoff is soooo worth it. To graduate, our students must:

  • Complete assessments throughout the course and pass a final certification test with at least an 80%.
  • Submit a peer or client coaching video.
  • Complete an interview demonstrating an understanding of the material.
  • Read and agree to our Code of Ethics.
