    “Erickson’s ICF coach training gave me a powerful new way to listen & engage with clients that gives incredible access to results. Combined with the Passion into Profit Course, coaching is now more than a passion for me; in about 6 months of hard work, I have now replaced my physiotherapy practice with a full-time Career and Transitional Coaching.”
