Meet other Certified Natural Vision Coaches who are grads from the training program by Greg Marsh. Current listings are in USA and Europe. This listings page is new, and more Vision Coaches will be added as they share their websites. Our program provides training aligned with that of a classical Bates Method Teacher or Natural Vision Improvement Teacher, with the addition of a powerful coaching approach and simple tools to help dissolve emotional blocks to seeing clearly.
"I am a wellness coach and massage therapist who is currently integrating a mind-body approach to healing chronic back pain based on the work of Dr. John Sarno. I started to develop presbyopia in my early forties. I learned of Greg Marsh and the vision training through Dr. Mercola and trusted Dr. Mercola as a reputable source. After speaking with Greg, I ordered his CD set and started to work with the material. Within three weeks, I was using my readers about 50% less. Within a few more weeks I was having flashes of clarity seeing print size I hadn't seen in years. At this point, I have discarded my readers completely except in instances of very low light, and am reading print size beyond anything I thought possible without glasses.
"The training is an amazing experience of a shared journey with like minded individuals in a wonderful setting by the beach. I am very grateful for having taken it and have made such great friends through it. Greg is a kind, generous and supportive mentor and goes above and beyond the call for his students and clients. His enthusiasm for his work is evident in everything he does as is his sincerity and openness to question and learn from all sources. He is one of a kind, and I don't know that I've ever felt as supported by any coach or teacher. The decision to take the Coach Training was a big one, and one I'm so glad I made! It fits perfectly alongside the mind-body work I am already doing, and my clients are already seeing benefits!"

Qualities that will Help You Succeed as a Coach
The ability to listen and encourage and inspire is your most important coaching skill.
Success in improving your own eyesight, which will bring an infectious enthusiasm when coaching others. You do not have to have perfect vision, but you should at least have ongoing improvement with your own eyesight in order to properly convey the techniques to others.
It takes practice to become confident in coaching. The buddy coaching and practice clients will give you a strong starting point to increase effectiveness with future clients. Blurry eyesight tends to be accompanied by life stress and tight muscles throughout the face, neck, shoulders, and elsewhere.
Continuing education is not required, however you will likely want to keep learning about natural approaches for better eyesight and improved overall health to refine your coaching skills.
Some people take this training to make improvements with their own eyesight and to help their family and friends. Others teach community center classes, offer workshops, and/or work with clients in person or by phone. If you want Natural Vision Coaching to become your primary source of income, this training will help you with the skills, practice, and confidence to get started immediately. Of course it helps if you enjoy all the facets of growing your own business!
