Student Testimonials

Lana Joe, California (USA)

“Radiant Coaches Academy is such a balm to my soul. It is an incredibly supportive, nourishing, and welcoming space for coaches. It has provided a structure for me to take my coaching work to the next level and to deepen my own connection to myself. I cannot say enough positive things about Radiant Coaches Academy. The learning platform is easy to use and the breadth of topics offered is amazing. So much gratitude to all the mentors and friends (so many!) I’ve met here, especially Dez, who has been such a kind and supportive force. So much gratitude!”

Nick Reich, Indiana (USA)

“I would highly recommend Radiant Coaches Academy as a space to continue to learn and develop your passions related to your coaching practice and the skills associated with it. The community of learners and coaches has made a huge difference in the process, so engaging with those in the network is key to a successful outcome. I've really enjoyed the learning and growth and would recommend Radiant for anyone looking to expand their knowledge, skills and abilities in coaching.”

Dinah Wong Slattery, Washington (USA)

“Radiant Coaches Academy changed my life. When I made the decision to switch from accounting to life coaching, the enormous selection of coaching schools overwhelmed me. But after my initial (over an hour-long!) conversation with Dez, I was convinced. This is where I need to be. Although it's difficult to put into words, I felt like I was at home. But committing requires more than simply a warm, fuzzy sensation. Dez is sharp and savvy, so the combination of feeling supported and knowing that she operates a forward-thinking, innovative, and practical program met all my needs. These were the deciding factors, and more than I expected: self-paced learning, knowledgeable instructors, a wide variety of subject matters, and a welcoming community were all provided by RCA. I was drawn to the freedom of creating my own schedule while working full-time. The ability to select the classes and times accommodated my busy schedule, but the teachers themselves made the biggest difference. The in-depth knowledge was one thing, but the encouragement to be ourselves was what really gave me confidence. I love how diverse the students are, how different our backgrounds are, and how we are all driven to be the greatest versions of ourselves in addition to helping others. Dez's accessibility amazes me as well. Whether it was a product tip or feedback on a business decision, my emails were always immediately responded to. She’s right there. Dez cares about everyone in this place, and her kindness extends beyond the Radiant family. She has a great heart for a person who is struggling, as I have personally seen. Dez's dedication to love and compassion in all areas of her life is something I am aware of, and this inspires me. Radiant Coaches Academy has helped me to develop, heal, and gain the information I need to keep moving forward on my goal of being a holistic life coach. I cherish the bonds I've made here, and I know I'm part of a family that supports me on my journey.”

The community and learning environment at RCA couldn’t be better. I have learned a lot in this program and feel very grateful to be part of the RCA community.”

Sumaya Jeeva, South Africa

“It has been a rewarding experience being part of Radiant. I love that it allows me accessibility to a community of people who are learners, seekers and coaches- indefinitely. What I appreciate about the way the course is structured is that it allows flexibility in terms of completing the work, as well as in selecting which Zooms to attend. We all have varying interests and resonate with certain guides/ teachers moreso than others, and the options allow for one to hone in on a particular area of interest and cultivate that. I have made some wonderful connections that I hope will be ongoing relationships.“

Marie Jones, South Carolina (USA)

“Radiant Coaches Academy is the place to be! When I started my journey searching for the right coaching program, I was looking at so many options from universities with degrees to other academy’s, but I was always drawn by the peace and joy that Radiant Coaches Academy gave me whenever I would visit their site. Then I got on the phone with Dez Stephens and the alignment was unbelievable!! It was a feeling that I have arrived and they have been waiting for me with open arms. Their training is truly life transforming from the training modules to the live zooms that are surrounded by love, support, and authenticity. It’s truly life changing!

I recommend this program to everyone who believes their purpose is to help others, and maybe are unsure how to begin, and anyone who may have a personal journey they overcame that would help others overcome the same struggles. I am so grateful to have found this program and continue to look forward to what opens up next for Radiant, its students, and for our clients.”

Brenna Chambliss, North Carolina (USA)

“The holistic coach training from Radiant Coaches Academy is more relaxed and casual than other coaching schools. There is an emphasis on community that other schools may not have. It’s authentic and people-focused, which is why I chose to pick Radiant as my school. I loved being able to learn from so many like-minded coaches, and the global, diverse community is a definite advantage. I loved having the option to knock out a ton of coaching and training hours on one of Radiant’s international retreats as well!”

Nadine Crespo, Illinois (USA)

“Radiant Coaches Academy truly takes a holistic person centered approach when teaching coaching. I love that they not just focus on the philosophical pieces but also share pragmatics to help you launch your business.

It is a great program!”

David Gustafson, Iowa (USA)

“I think I came to this training with a lot of natural abilities that made me a good listener, and a good support for others. But Radiant Coaches Academy has given me the tools to better master this technology that is life coaching. Also, what I've experienced in my own personal transformational journey has been nothing short of life-changing. I've grown and evolved more as a human being more in this short time since beginning this training than I had all the other years of my adult life combined.”

Dr. Katrina Sheena Smyth, Belfast (Northern Ireland)

“My experience with Radiant Coaches Academy has been wonderful, the guidance, learning content and peer community has been extraordinary. I began my journey knowing little to nothing about coaching, with a strong desire to help people and connect the dots with my current creative teaching practice. Radiant Coaches has helped me become more knowledgable and confident in moving forward with my career as a holistic coach, and I am so excited to continue on this wonderful journey! To anyone considering joining, I say go for it, I think you will be amazed too!”

Cara Dempsey, West Virginia (USA)

“I knew I wanted the tools of a coach but didn’t understand the reason why becoming certified and accredited was so important until I came across Radiant Coaches Academy. Having a self-paced program will fit everyone’s availability to become certified. I love how the quest program has a community and keeps us accountable, but having a Facebook group leaves room for support and connection. You will receive support all the way through from experienced coaches and those going through the course with you. This program breaks down every aspect of what you will need to be a coach, from the tools of a coach, to building your online presence and marketing yourself as a coach. Dez has been wonderful to work with, and anytime I need help or support, she has been right there for me. I had some worries about coming from a strategy and consultation background and going into coaches, but I am happy to say that this program was exactly what I needed for this venture. I am so grateful to have found Stacee, Dez, and the Radiant Coaching program!”

Ellen Haring, Tennessee (USA)

“I joined Radiant Coaches Academy because it focused on holistic coaching, were the education builds on expanding your awareness around who your clients are, what their needs are, and how to be an active listener. This allows you to dive into the present moment to focused on where a client is at and ways to empower them to look within to see the answer. It's a flexible program, with a clear road map to complete your certification and prepare you to start your coaching business. From self-guided lessons, live online courses, and in person retreats, you are not only learning about holistic coaching, but you are learning in a holistically community of educators and students passionate to coach people in all areas of life.”

Lisa Firestone, Tennessee (USA)

“Attending Radiant Coaches Academy's training has done so much more than teach me how to coach others, it's transformed my internal dialog, habits, and decision-making. I feel more competent, intuitive, centered, generous, and trusting of life. The self-paced system required that I master an area where I'd gotten slack: managing multi-faceted learning effectively. With other coaches support, I replaced old habits, with new ones. Meeting the requirements at my own pace allowed me to prioritize other needs in my life, allowing me to meet my growing edges without undue stress and pressure, and with plenty of support. In the courses, critiques were invaluable, and appropriately gentle but clear to what would most help us grow. The do/don'ts learned in classes has helped me avoid mistakes and intuit better questions for my clients. Finally, Dez made our retreats unifying and fun. I've felt supported and connected in a culture which could easily be competitive. It's a joy to celebrate others' successes!”

Betty Bliss, Singapore

“I really enjoy this coaching training, and Dez is an amazing coach with a big heart. You can feel her calm and fun energy in the class. She is also very knowledgeable not just in coaching, but also in many spiritual topics. I chose Radiant Coaching because of the flexibility and its uniqueness. You don’t need to resign from your job to complete 125/150 hours of study, but you can finish the classes at your own speed. I found it’s like my place, and I also found many of my type of people here. It also covers a wide range of topics and like an all-in-one school, where you can learn from coaching to yoga, crystals and tarot! You will find an amazing coaching journey here with Radiant Coaches Training. Thank you Dez and Radiant Coach to supports me to become a professional coach.”

Tisha Marina Bernard, California (USA)

“Radiant Coaching Academy has been truly life changing. I had been through another coaching program and upon graduating, still felt unprepared. When the opportunity arose to take this program, I was so excited. This time I was offered a scholarship to participate through my Indigenous lineage. As a woman of color, being given this opportunity, was a priceless gift. I felt empowered to truly be me and use my gifts to serve others. The online training and weekly training calls have been invaluable. Throughout this process I have also been given the blessing to apply for my PCC! If you want to get certified through a program that will expand your life's possibilities and get your fully prepared, sign up today!”

Keturah Weathers, North Carolina (USA)

Starting this train meant stepping into my authentic self, fearlessly and unapologetically. Coming to the end of this portion of the training means that I now have the confidence to be exactly who I know I've been called to be. Since beginning this training, I have been able to refocus my mindset and go within to reconnect with self. The biggest takeaway I will leave this portion of the training with is that I have EVERYTHING I need to be who I need to be within.”

Kimberly Kikue Gaona, Texas (USA)

“The power of your potential awaits. If ever there was a thought or feeling that you have more to do in your life's journey or have more to offer the world, then you probably do. Ever wonder how you end up somewhere and that somewhere feels right? That's what happened to me! The training from Radiant Coaches Academy has provided me with a solid foundation that aligns with my holistic coaching beliefs. The material was instructive, straightforward, interactive, and fluid. The constant support of the Radiant Coaching Academy equips me with the resources to hone my coaching skills and confidently build my practice at my own pace. Live training and recorded library-based training allowed me to control the material flow and specify my area of interest daily. The self-paced curriculum inspired me to join the live Zoom training calls on the very first day, fueling my motivation. The abundance of knowledge and resources causes me to spend hours perusing the recorded Zoom classes. I loved it! There is no better time than now for me to shine.”

Holly Tuyls, Wisconsin (USA)

“Radiant Coaches Academy offers a flexible, well-rounded curriculum, with lots of opportunities for deeper study and expansion. The structure and outline holds a clear and solid space, while providing lots of freedom and encouragement to individualize your experience in choosing your classes, topics of study, and further reading and research. Dez is a wealth of knowledge and leads with compassion and gentleness. Meeting and learning with and from fellow students from all over the world is incredibly expansive and gratifying. The online classes available for training hours are diverse, interesting, and fun! I learned so much, both personally and professionally. I feel confident in my training and in my certification, and appreciate the instructions, support, and opportunities to continue to grow professionally, even after completion of the certification. Dez has curated a really wonderful community of people, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”

Laura Rodriguez, Texas (USA)

“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Radiant Coaches Academy was a gift sent from heaven for me. I was ready to learn, and so all the fantastic Radiant teachers appeared on the quest as well as the intensive training hosted by Dez Stephens. The training guided me and gave me all the tools needed to gain confidence, believe in myself, and show up for my clients. Thank you, Radiant teachers. I don’t know how to explain what this training has done for me. I have heard before “when the student is ready, the teacher appears” I experienced it with this course. You all are amazing teachers and I feel blessed to be able to learn from all of you! Especially Dez. I am now confident and feel ready to enter the field of coaching. Thank you all you for making this possible.”

Cierra Tutton, Nashville (USA)

“Radiant Coaches Academy has helped me tremendously in a year that could’ve had no direction I now feel more aligned than ever before with my purpose. This training is very student-friendly and easy to understand and comprehend. Everyone has been helpful from Facebook groups, community groups within the training, and Dez is amazing, and always one text or email away.”

Russell Church, Tennessee (USA)

“Radiant Coaches Academy training will give you all the tools you need to become a holistic coach, open your perspective and can transform your life if you let it.  It is obvious that Dez has walked the walk of holistic life coaching and has spent the time to put together a training program that includes all the tools needed to create a successful coaching business.  The words ‘life changing’ are too often overused, but when approached with an open mind and spirit, Dez’s breadth of knowledge, combined with Misti’s experience and expertise in training, creates an opportunity for a life changing experience.” 

Tianna Onyebuagu, Tennessee (USA)

“Broken but Healed – This is how I describe my training.  I entered broken only to be healed while learning how to heal others. This is a journey well worth taking. Your tribe the people that embark upon this journey with you will be irreplaceable. Thank you so much Radiant Coaches Academy for reminding me that I am whole. Get ready you are in for a ride that you will never forget you are here on purpose and not by chance.”

Tara Tse, Saskatchewan (Canada)

“The 5-day in-person training was a beautiful place to explore personal and professional growth as a coach. We had an incredible group of people that created a safe space to be in together, which was essential to deepen our journeys. We will stay in touch as friends and support as we continue to flow through our lives.”

Nikki Hall, Tennessee (USA)

“Coming into this training with no expectations and an open mind allowed me to really delve in and be present to witness this awesome experience. In seeking to aid others to reach a place of peace, I found this training truly inspirational and transformational in my own life. Radiant Coaches Academy is sincerely a FAMILY of coaches who truly believe in the reinforcement of self-love and self-discovery which enables us to actively put our clients at the head of their own healing. This method of training serves as a sacred space and platform that nourishes the whole person and equips you with all that you need to begin coaching with a solid foundation…and the support never ends! I am tremendously grateful for the experience and can’t wait to put into action what I have so graciously received!”

Allison Mills Lindsey, Tennessee (USA)

“Radiant Coaching Academy is the real deal. The combination of in-person training, online classes, the abundance of resources and mentors makes Radiant stand out among the sea of training options. This program gave me the tools I need to expand how I meet people where they are and help them on their journey. The fact that the Radiant program is accredited by the International Coaching Federation helps me know that I received top-notch training and that I have the certification I need as the coaching industry becomes more regulated. Finally, I know that this program was meant to be on my path, the culmination of years of work, but also the start of a new journey for me that will allow me to be in control of my own financial security and future while living my life’s purpose.” 

Erica Cullum, Tennessee (USA)

“On what felt like a whim, I enrolled in Radiant's holistic coach in-person training. I thought I was already coaching and that this certification would be a great addition to my professional credentials. I had no idea it would expand my life and shatter my own personal glass ceiling (that I didn't even know was there!) I am floored by how powerful this work has been and how quickly it can be done! Hands down this training was one of the greatest gifts I have ever given myself because it opened up a way to merge my professional expertise with my heart and passion. I am forever grateful and transformed.”

Gregory David, Washington, DC (USA)

“The training program has been an amazing experience.  As a professional who wants to create a midlife career shift, I have found the Radiant holistic program broadened my horizons and opened doorways to possibilities to help other people in ways that draw upon all my life experiences and resources.  The program truly is holistic in the background and teaches you to think with a holistic mindset.  I learned strong foundational elements of coaching’s history and origins as well as potential pathways that coaching may take in the future.  The program's pathway creates an introspective look at yourself,  so you can better take a look at who you are and what you want to accomplish as a coach—that way you can marry it to the client base you hope to serve.  Through the process, I have made connections and bonds with other classmates and coaches that have proven to be invaluable relationships for opinions and thoughts as we experience the training courses together and embark on our coaching careers.”

Jessy Paz, Honduras (Central America)

“For me, training as a coach as a psychologist led me to expand my tools. Likewise, as a person, it brought me to calm and self-love. Sharing with other people with the same passion for helping others is wonderful and enriching, it becomes a bond and a family in your life. It develops you as a human and professional. You learn to listen and see beyond the selfishness that sometimes surrounds us unconsciously. The training was like a retreat for my being, where I could find myself once again and then help others. Radiant holistic coach for me was a lot of personal growth. It moves your heart and it moves your soul, dust off your instincts, and revives them from oblivion. It was an experience of incredible connections with wonderful people, a lot of learning, and above all, I won a tool that was created to help others. Immensely happy to have been part of this team and to be part of a huge family that develops and trains itself to be better day by day so that we can give others a little of each and serve humanity not only with a reason but from the heart and soul.”

Andy Munoz, North Carolina (USA)

The online material and courses are wonderful supplements to turn to and keep the information top of mind. I felt like this training broke me open, and I can’t wait to do the same for my clients. The Radiant team is clearly committed to the success of their coaches.”

This training for me was not only educational in nature to increase my knowledge of coaching but so much more. It was a personal transformation for me. This training will not only equip you with the tools you need to become a successful coach but also empower you to be your best self in the process.”

Brenda Lanigan, Ontario (Canada)

“I have enjoyed the coaching certification program from Radiant Coaches Academy. The modules were interactive and interesting, which supports different learning styles. There is a wonderful community of seasoned coaches, just graduated coaches as well as those moving through the program. They are all very helpful and supportive, ready to answer questions or give kind words of encouragement. Dez, the owner and founder, is also easily accessible and facilitates some of the coaching calls, which I think is great; being able to speak to someone who has built a wonderful company to help others is a great opportunity. I highly recommend Radiant Coaches Academy for anyone who is interested in becoming a certified coach.”


Jessica Anderson, Tennessee (USA)

“The Radiant Coaches Certification program has been so valuable to me! From the inspired way in which It came into my life, to the information-packed content that it provides, It has certainly been a profound experience for me! I have never felt more empowered or confident to move forward in my coaching business as I do now! I am so excited for the future, and so grateful to Radiant Coaches, and all involved!”


Brooke Eisenhart, Arizona (USA)

“Radiant Coaches Academy helped me to learn how to ask the right questions. How to step away from myself and more toward the client to help them in the most effective way. Using open-ended questions and leaving judgments at the door, and asking my clients to come up with their goals versus advising.”

Mary Robinson, Wisconsin (USA)

“I had been having this aching feeling that my purpose in this world was meant for more than what I was doing. Lots of mentors pointed me towards coaching and while researching which academy to join I came across Radiant. The more I read, the more it seems too good to be true. Dez called me and walked through why I was feeling this was the right path for me and what coaching has become and what doors it could open for me. EVERYTHING was telling me to say yes….and then I finally said yes to me. That was the best decision I made. I felt more confident in how I was having conversations with people. I felt more at peace with how I present myself to the world. I am so thankful for the flexibility in the course work and how comfortable all the coaches make it feel.”

Renee Atkins, Colorado (USA)

“I had been searching for a coaching program for a few years before a friend recommend Radiant Coaches Academy. Being in this academy has been life changing for me. Not only did I find a program that was exactly what I have been looking for, but with in the academy I have gained the skills and growth I needed at this point in my life. Radiant coaches has an amazing network for whatever your needs are. I have met so many amazing people at Radiant, I feel blessed to be apart of the Radiant family.”

Shellie Warren, Tennessee (USA)

“When I decided to become a certified life coach (because it's not currently a regulated field of work), I wasn't exactly sure which program to enroll in. I actually have a close friend who runs a coaching school yet I'm someone who looks for ‘signs' that I've found the right fit.

After my ‘interview' with Dez Stephens, I got the confirmation that Radiant Coaches Academy is where I needed to be. It's a casual and relaxed environment while holding a level of requirements that makes you feel like once you leave, you will be confident enough to call yourself a life coach and (get this) actually know what that means (because a lot of people who say they are do not…that's another story for another time, though!).

The live classes are pretty flexible, so that you're able to get the hours you need without significantly compromising your lifestyle, the instructors are friendly and they make sure to make themselves available (including Dez) and the support system of the academy is strong.

No ICF-regulated school is what I would call inexpensive (which needs to be a heads up actually if you're trying to choose a school; the cheaper ones are oftentimes a red flag) yet I feel like this experience was time and money well-spent; that it was a solid investment. Plus, if you need to be on a payment plan, it's quite doable. I have no regrets. Overall, it was a good experience for me.”
