Break The Worry Trance™

Coaching Academy

For Mental Health Professionals




Meet Us At The Beach In 2020!

Become certified as a Break The Worry Trance™ Coach with Daybreak's NEW coaching academy for mental health professionals.

Upon completion of this 40 hour CEU curriculum, you will have everything you need to bring a structured 12 hour coaching program to your clients who worry too much, including those who may be experiencing panic disorder, OCD, social anxiety, and/or excessive general anxiety and rumination. This coaching certification training is provided in a long distance format only.


Evidence-Based Treatment Meets Integrative Coaching

This program is based on Daybreak's best-selling Breaking The Worry Trance online course.  The best of outcome-oriented approaches in anxiety treatment have been put together into an integrative coaching intensive that will give your clients a step-by-step program for breakthroughs, new perspectives, and transformational change.

As a Daybreak certified Break The Worry Trance™ Coach, you'll establish your expertise as a mental health professional with a specialization in anti-anxiety coaching.  Daybreak's unique coaching program can be delivered as a stand-alone practice, and can also be integrated into your existing psychotherapy services.

What Makes This Program Special

Sometimes clients need a road-map to disrupt chronic habits and cycles of obsessive worry.  People living with serious anxiety often find themselves at an impasse wherein they find counselling too cyclical and exploratory (without enough emphasis on concrete change strategies), but conventional life coaching just too overwhelming.  Often, a well-intentioned Coach will deliver programming that fails to recognize the complexities of panic, attachment trauma, and/or serious mental health issues.  At the same time, even the most highly trained mental health professional can sometimes unknowingly reinforce long-standing avoidance patterns and/or barriers to recovery.

As a Daybreak certified coach, you'll get in-depth training on comprehensive anti-anxiety coaching strategies that offer your clients the following:

  • Strongly focused motivational work that is challenging, but also individualized and well-paced;
  • Goal-oriented programming with embedded mindfulness teachings;
  • Power-packed inspirational exercises backed up by a solid clinical framework; and
  • Recovery coaching that breaks both conscious and unconscious fear-based living patterns. 

You'll be offering a highly specialized program that is based on years of feedback from hundreds of clients who have gone through Break The Worry Trance as a key component of their healing.  We've put this feedback together into a coaching template that works.

Break The Worry Trance is NOT for everybody.  As a certified Daybreak Coach, you'll be able to effectively assess program eligibility and advise on next steps that best meet client needs.  Our 12-hour coaching template will be ideally delivered to your clients over the course of 6-8 weeks, but you can also provide this programming through a 4-5 day individual or group coaching intensive, or through weekly / bi-weekly coaching segments that are a "best fit" for your practice.
