Sensation-Based Motivation Coaching Certification Program
A trauma-sensitive and research supported approach to coaching
Sensation-Based Motivation Coaching
Certification Program Overview

A powerful confluence of mindfulness, neuroscience, and bioenergetics, The Sensation-Based Motivation Coach training certification program will teach you the deepest approach to personal transformation by helping your clients become aware of, decode, modify, and reframe the root cause of their emotional content at the cellular level.  This trauma-informed system recognizes that emotions are the driving force of human behavior, and focuses on the most basic and tangible part of the emotional experience- the sensations. Our sensations dictate not only what actions we take in every aspect of our lives, but also create physical issues such as dis-ease, stress, anxiety, and depression when they are misunderstood or ignored.

When we teach you how to systematically access and leverage the raw data of your client’s nervous system, the sensations, any transformation becomes possible for them. You will have the skills and tools to help people quickly go from stuck and resistant to enthusiastic action takers. This makes you a valuable resource for your clients, potential clients, and colleagues. 

“I used SBMC to help myself quit my job and start my own practice, which doubled my salary and I’m working way less.”

The Cross Mapping Method is a sensation reframing tool that can be used to eliminate chronic physical pain, emotional stress, anxiety, and other forms of emotional suffering.

Be an expert in human behavior

Get to the raw data of the nervous system- the sensations.

First there was IQ – intellectual intelligence.

Then there was EI – emotional intelligence.

We are now in the age of – Physical Intelligence.

When you take this somatic coaching certification program you will harness your clients complete intelligence. 

Action does not arise from thoughts. It does not arise from will. Action arises from our physiology no matter who you are, what you’ve been through, or how successful you’ve been in the past or will be in the future.

When you learn to masterfully work with a person’s sensations you work with the raw data of the human physiology. In essence, you can access their holistic intelligence.

And people can feel it.

Gone are the days where you can just address a client’s intelligence without addressing emotionality. But how do we easily and completely address both mental and emotional intelligence, as well as the wisdom of spirituality, without getting off on a tangent or getting lost in impractical ideations?

Sensation-Based Motivation Coaching.

It’s simple. It’s profound. It can transform people just because you’re in the room with them. And it creates miracle life results for clients.

Sensation-Based Motivation Coaching is a simple and complete somatic coaching experience. 

“I have found Ani and Brian to be two of the most grounded individuals I have encountered in the personal development industry. They are a breath of fresh air- knowledgable, real and relatable.”

Perhaps you’ve experienced having clients who…

  • Couldn’t seem to meet their goals.
  • Get better only to relapse.
  • Won’t do their homework.
  • Have physical symptoms that take their focus away from their work or goals.
  • Experience family problems or other seemingly unrelated setbacks.

Perhaps you’ve personally experienced…

  • Feeling like there is a higher calling for you.
  • Knowing you’re in over your head with client’s emotional needs
  • Thinking body symptoms or seemingly random events that take you off course and you wonder (and know) it’s not a coincidence.
  • Being unsure of how to go really deep with people in a way that is safe because you know that superficial solutions don’t work and that human connection is the most important skill to develop.
  • Wanting to put an end to “band-aid” fixes because you’re dedicated to sustainable, reproducible change.
  • Feeling passionate that the world needs more human-ness.
  • Not being able to help someone change.

Your Lead Instructors
Ani Anderson and Brian Trzaskos have over 45 years and 86,000 hours of client experience. As rehabilitation specialists, they both took a revolutionary approach to client care, leaving the broken Western Medical System and Insurance reimbursement model behind to start their own private pay private practices.

From there they grew two thriving wellness centers, both in their tiny home town of 4,000 year round residents.

Having become the “people who you go to when the doctor doesn’t know what is wrong” Ani and Brian knew it was time to begin teaching on a global scale. The Sensation-Based Motivation Program is their second global training institution.

Ani and Brian have clients around the world, are seen as thought-leaders in their field and hold space for thriving communities of dedicated service-based professionals. They are highly respected by leaders in the therapeutic and coaching industry, having hosted thousands of trainings between them, and are routinely told that their work has changed the lives of the people they serve like nothing else before.

At the end of the day, Ani and Brian are most proud of their thriving personal relationship and the kind of parents they have chosen to dedicate their lives to being. When they aren’t teaching, they can be found in their little log home in the woods, nestled between the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains and Lake Champlain in New York.
Enrollment Information

All students must take the Cross Mapping Method certification program prior to Sensation-Based Motivation Coaching certification. To inquire about signing up for BOTH programs and savings $1000 on the cost of your tuition, request an interview with on of our program advisor today!

Q: I’m not a coach. Is this program for me?

A: If you are a service professional who works with clients or staff and you desire to have a skill set that can quickly help people move from resistant and stuck into empowered and inspired quickly, YES, this program is for you! This program is perfect for social service professionals and managers who manage people problems all day.

Q: I’m already a coach. How is this different from other coaching programs?

A: Established coaches train with us because Sensation-Based Motivation is the most complete, the most effective, and the most sustainable way to help your clients create personal transformations. Statistically most people who receive coaching services do not transform their life results. Most coaches would say that “not everyone is willing to change.” What we say is, a skilled Sensation-Based Motivation Coach understands that the only thing blocking a person from making positive changes in their lives is resistance. Resistance that can not be intellectualized (as most of it can’t) MUST be met with a wholistic, somatic (body-centered) approach like Sensation-Based Motivation Coaching. Yes, established coaches train with us.

Q: I work at a day job and have yet to start my own business, but I want to. Is this program for me?

A: Maybe. SBMC can make you a much more valuable employee. We also give you the bonuses you need to build a thriving business. That being said, SBMC is very high level curriculum and we want to make sure you will have the desired results following your training. It’s best for us to have a phone conversation to determine your if this program is a good match for you and your desires.

Q: I’m already a coach but I have had trouble filling my practice. I’m not great with marketing. Can this program help me?

A: Yes! When you know who you are at the “core” figuring out who you serve and how you serve them becomes very simple. This will be a part of your personal transformation in the program.

Why is the Level 1 and Level 2 program combined 9 months long? Isn't that a long time?

A: Our coaches are not only expected to learn content and demonstrate competencies, they are expected to use and embody the SBMC tools and methodology to create their own life transformations. It takes 9 months to make a human being and it takes 9 months to make a qualified, highly trained SBMC coach. Breakthroughs can occur in a moment. True lasting transformation takes time... it takes 9 months.

Q: I would love to join this program, but the investment is too large for me. I will join if I can find the money.

A: Money consciousness is a BIG part of the discussion in our network among our students because for many of our students, the breakthrough they are looking for is around money specifically. Here is truth: Money is energy. And if you do not have enough of it and want more, you do not have a money problem, you have an energy problem. Our clients have experienced results all the way from getting their first client check to quadrupling revenue in an established seven figure business. These results are real, but not guaranteed because the amount of money you can gain from this program FAR exceeds your investment, however you will have to put the action steps in place to make it happen. If you would love to join the program, your first step is to schedule an interview, and if accepted, make a decision to join. Then, and only then, can the money become available to you to pay for tuition. The money doesn’t come first, a decision comes first. 
*We are committed to having a diverse group of certified SBMC coaches. If your background and ethnicity has put you in a position of societal disadvantage, and you are interested in the program, please contact us. Scholarships may be available!

Q: I’m a therapist and would love to make more money and have more free time. I’ve considered becoming a coach, but it seems so superficial. What do you think?

A: Ani and Brian will tell you… they weren’t considering becoming coaches either! Coaching can be a profound journey of self discovery and a phenomenal way to help your clients get in touch with the truth of who they are. If that sounds exciting… we should talk.

Q: This program sounds like it’s for therapists, but I’m not a therapist.

A: Have you ever felt like you should have a therapists couch in your office because people come to you with personal problems you didn’t feel qualified to help them with? Yep… thought so 😉
