I know that you get it. You have your kids, your life and you really love being a mom.

Somewhere along the way, though, you’ve realized you want more.
You want to do more with your life. You want to earn more.

And most importantly, you want to make more of a difference.

But here is the thing: You want to do all that while STILL being an awesome mom. You don’t want to sacrifice your kids for your life (or vice versa).

So here you are, considering coaching.

But before I tell you all about how I am going to help you make money, change the world AND still be a great mom, we have to talk about the thing you are probably thinking right now:

“Am I a fit for coaching? And what IS life coaching, anyway?”

A coach is like a spirit guide. A Jiminy Cricket type. Holding space for AMAZING things to happen and steering the ship a little if things get a little off track. As a coach you’ll become a companion. A friend. A sounding board. A support system.

Your goal is to help your clients have the best lives they can.

Sounds amazing, right?

It is!

“Okay, I know what a coach is, but how do I know if it’s right for me?”

Let me know if any of this sounds like you:

  • You love helping people and are frequently told you have a big ol’ heart.
  • You admire mama entrepreneurs and want to create a location independent lifestyle for yourself.
  • You have always thought about coaching and like the idea of it.
  • You are a great listener and love to support people through their trials and tribulations.
  • You have a blog right now and you’ve been thinking about expanding and offering a service.
  • You KNOW you have some valuable STUFF to share, you just haven’t figured out how to do it yet.

Did you say yes to any of those?

Great. Let’s talk.

Mama Bliss Coaching™ School

The Mama Bliss Coaching™ School is a 12-week Coaching Certification Program designed to help you become a coach to mamas (just like you) and give them the support and guidance they need to become better moms and create awesome lives for themselves.

At the end of our 12 weeks together you will have the knowledge, resources and tools you need to start your very own coaching practice and start taking your own clients. Every coaching practice looks different and you might have a few extra thousand a month or even build a six figure coaching practice eventually. It’s all up to you.

You will be reimagining your own life.
Starting your own business.

Where you will take your new business is up to how far you want to rise.

The program is designed to give you the to the clarity and confidence to strike out on your own. You will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to help other mamas navigate all parts of their experience — from weaning to homeschooling to mommy burnout.

You’ll be a guide. A friend.
A companion in the journey through motherhood.

As a Mama Bliss Coach, you’ll become an expert in the Mama Bliss Approach:
The 4 Pillars for Creating a Blissful Mama Life.



We’ll deeply examine five areas of self-care that will ensure you have the practices intact to thrive while maintaining the demands of both a thriving coaching practice and embracing your role as matriarch to a blissful family unit.



Whether you’re hyper-creative, not so crafty or just can’t find the time to indulge in your art, we’ll explore ways to ensure you get some creative play in everyday and the importance of tending to this mama bliss pillar to see your coaching practice soar in its unique expression.



Regularly reviewing your core values ease decision making and bring more fluidity and connection with your life purpose. We’ll also explore ways to welcome in this important conversation with our partners and later apply these discussions and conversation skills to our future coaching clients.



Seeking out and embracing simplicity in our days not only makes it more manageable to live our life according to our chosen values but creates the time and space to follow our bliss and share it with those around us. This will also help you develop the rhythm and flow to your unique work from home experience.

In addition to learning the Mama Bliss Coaching™ process,
you will be trained on the ins-and-outs of having your own business, including:

  • How to get great clients.
  • How to confidently run live workshops.
  • How to pull together your workflow.
  • How to feel great about putting yourself online.


“Kathy’s coaching is truly bliss for the creative mama’s soul.

I felt so listened to and she sharpened my own creative visions with attainable action steps through our work together.

Kathy brought different parts of my creative vision to life like a nurturing midwife while she carried my visions reminding me of my inner truths.The personal touches and joy she brings to her work kept me creatively inspired and focused along the road less traveled. She is the real creative deal and truly authentic and wonderful to work with.”

- Ellen Nightingale

You will also be given the outline of live workshops to offer to your community and beyond.

Creating a Thriving Coaching Practice
that Meshes with Your Awesome Mom-ness

It has taken me a while to figure out the nitty gritty bits of starting off. Not to mention starting off as a homeschooling and homesteading mama. In the final four weeks of the program, I share the practicalities and nuances of setting up a thriving practice that grows as your family’s needs change.

The Mama Bliss Coaching™ School
is all about creating a life that feels amazing to live.

Joyful WorkIt’s about finding the freedom to do what you want and work when you want, giving you enough space to spend quality time with your family.

The tools you learn in this program enable you to help the people you feel called to support. As a Mama Bliss Coach, you are able to hold the space for your client’s journey and contribute to their growth in many meaningful and inspiring ways.

But let’s not forget the journey you will embark on when you join this program.

Because becoming a Mama Bliss Coach is not just about helping (and healing) other people. It is also about giving yourself that life you have always dreamed of having.

I only allow 20 women to join.

This is to ensure that each woman has a safe and intimate space to unfold and unravel with plenty of 1-on-1 lovin’ from me throughout the program.

Jenn“I was inspired to sign up for Mama Bliss Coaching School because it is geared toward working with a mama’s unique needs and full lifestyle. I had also had experience with Kathy in her other workshops and just love her unique voice in the coaching world. She really gets the struggles and joys of motherhood.

The intuitive wisdom and tools Kathy shares are so user friendly and provide both subtle shifts as well as some awesome breakthroughs. Implementing the tools with my practice buddy was so empowering.

Since graduating from Mama Bliss Coaching School I have already found interest in my children’s school to lead mama-centered workshops. I see myself gradually fitting in a new line of work within the structure of home life. I am thrilled to be able to weave it all together. In the next two years I see myself working in collaboration with other health and wellness coaches in the community to offer group workshops as well as one-on-one coaching services. I am open to all that awaits me and curious to where this investment in myself will lead!”

A little bit about me:

kathyI have been working from home ever since the oldest of my two kids was born over nine years ago. And since 2011, I’ve been coaching mamas to bliss at Bliss Beyond Naptime as a certified Simplicity Parenting Coach and Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach.

I’ve observed over the years that even when my plate was super full with working from home (while running a hobby farm and homeschooling), by simplifying my life, even just a little, I can create the time and space to foster ideal growing conditions for my whole family, as well as my loftiest dream.

So now I have the tools, principles and process I call Mama Bliss Coaching™ to guide and support creative mamas to their bliss from within. I can’t wait to pass on this training to you so we can keep the bliss-ball rolling all around the world.

LeonieDawsonKathy is a kind, kindred mama spirit.

Her gentle guidance, joy, compassion and love are a mama’s best friend. She will encourage you to follow the beat of your own drum and create a life that sings to you.”

~Leonie Dawson, Author & Entrepreneur

Are you ready to explore if this path is right for you?

The next step is for you to fill out an application form, which I’ll review personally. If I believe that you’d be a good fit for the program and the current group of women, I’ll email you to schedule a 15 minute phone call to talk.

The Mama Bliss Coaching™ School
Fall 2014 Session start date will be announced soon.

Registration for the Spring 2014 session is now closed. If you’d like to be informed when the application process is open for the Fall 2014 session, please sign up for my newsletter here.

Got questions?

Here are some answers for you.

What’s the time commitment for the coursework like?

Each Monday you will be emailed the lesson of the week. The compilation of these will make up your Mama Bliss Coaching™ Manual. Within these pages, you will find exercises to fill out at your leisure and a written assignment to be emailed back to us. You can expect to spend about 1-2 hours a week on this aspect of the program.

Every week we’ll have a one hour group coaching call where I will be adding to the week’s lesson as well as offer opportunities to share with the group as whole, demonstrate coaching techniques and answer any questions. These calls will be recorded and made available to you afterwards. If you aren’t able to attend a call you are expected to listen to this recording and email in three insights.

From week 5, we’ll assign a practice buddy to you. You will be required to connect with your buddy between 4-6 times for 60 minutes per session. In this time, you will each practice 30 minutes of coaching. These sessions offer the perfect opportunity to hone your coaching skills and get any additional support you may be needing.


Does it matter if I’m not a mother?

The word “Mama” in Mama Bliss Coaching™ is used in the broadest sense (no pun intended). Though I do refer a lot to parenting, rediscovering one’s self after the birthing labyrinth journey, and addressing the common blocks of resistance mothers experience on a daily basis as well as dealing with feelings of overwhelm, perfectionism, procrastination and being stuck in a rut.

I almost always think of a “Mama” in the most Goddess-y, empowered, lovingly ‘hear-me-roar’ way. She is a woman that carries the sentiment across of the feminine-centered, creative and non-linear approach that is the Mama Bliss Coaching™ way.

And on that note, I’d like to stress that this is a program open only to women.


Will I have access to you?

Besides the weekly calls, I also offer twice-weekly ‘office hours’ that you can sign up for when you feel the need for some 1-on-1 lovin’ from me. This your time to ask me private questions, offer feedback or simply connect on a personal level for a check in.


What happens upon completion of the program?

I will do whatever I can to help you see your practice soar!

Upon receiving two recorded twenty minute sample sessions, we will grant you a license to call yourself a Certified Mama Bliss Coach™. When you’re ready, your profile will be listed on BlissBeyondNaptime.com in the Mama Bliss Coaching™ directory for a small annual licensing fee. Your profile will include not only an introduction and link to your own site but also a recording of an interview with me where you get to share what you offer, who you love to work with and if you have a particular area of expertise. This profile can be updated on an annual basis.

I will also continue offering my support through quarterly online workshops, collaboration opportunities, and regular bliss-drenched Mama Bliss Coach™ retreats.

So, are you ready to explore if this path is for you?

The Mama Bliss Coaching™ School Fall 2014 Session start date will be announced soon.

Registration for the Spring 2014 session is now closed. If you’d like to be informed when the application process is open for the Fall 2014 session, please sign up for my newsletter here.
