Online Life Coaching Course & Professional Community

In a matter of months, you can become a life coach using the Mentally STRONG Method. Created by our founder, Dr. Cristi Bundukamara Ed.D. PMHNP, the Mentally STRONG Method is a “do it yourself” approach to understanding how past experiences impact our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. This approach is rooted in various aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), that can help you manage problems by changing the way you think and behave, and is proven to help individuals overcome common challenges such as stress, lack of confidence and poor communication skills.
