9. What Others Say About
"You owe it to yourself and you clients to take this
class. It will inform and inspire you to understand well-being
at a much deeper level. Ann-Marie "walks the walk" and
with her wellness classes under your belt, you will too."
"WOW! What a ride! Anne-Marie is awesome! She is not only
an excellent teacher but also very respectful of her students,
their needs, their thoughts, their ideas, and their creativity.
She positions herself as a "co-learner" with her students
and honors everyone's ideas. Ann-Marie brings a gentle touch and
a deep compassion to her work. She walks her talk."
John H. Millerman, Ph.D.
"I always looked forward to hearing Ann Marie’s positive,
soothing voice. She has a magical way of bringing one out of the
chaos that is life and back to an inner peace that allows for
learning, understanding, and moving forward. She is a multi-talented,
diversely-certified, and dedicated person who cares deeply about
the learning and even more deeply about the person."
"I'm still thinking about your Keynote, Ann-Marie. You
offered some indelible pearls of wisdom and food for thought that
are still ringing pleasantly in my consciousness. You "got
it" when it came to delivering the Keynote that spoke to
the heart and soul of the conference and the needs of the attendees.
You blessed us. Thank you so much!!!"
Mary Stinson, LPCC
Counseling Association Conference Director
"Ann-Marie, I just wanted to send you a short note of
gratitude. I am currently experiencing the Individual Skills class;
as you know most students in the Individual Skills class experienced
different foundations classes. I just wanted to say thanks for
preparing us in MCP 150, with the utmost precision. Thanks Anne-Marie!"
"As an individual who has floundered with overall wellness,
Ann-Marie taught me step-by-step how to create, implement and
then reevaluate my own personal wellness program. The key? Using
"my own human laboratory" - my own body to understand
wellness coaching. Using my own life and my own body as a tool
for learning, has gifted me the compassion and understanding of
future wellness clients. Thank you Ann-Marie!"
Cunningham Coaching Co., LLC & MentorCoach Student
"What did I learn in Anne-Marie McKelvey's Becoming A
Wellness Coach: Living And Coaching The Good Life, Part I? I learned
how to question myself, how to connect with myself, and with others.
The process of writing a personal wellness plan, as well as a
personal credo, helped me to clarify my beliefs, aspirations,
needs, and wellness goals. Thank you, Anne-Marie, for your humor,
your compassion, and your constant encouragement."
"Ann-Marie's "Becoming a Wellness Coach Class"
will not only expand your definition of what wellness really means,
but it will encourage you to walk in the footsteps of your clients
before they themselves take the walk. In order to partner with
your clients on their journey to wellness you must live it first.
Part one of this class focuses on what wellness means to you.
The gems that you will take away are hidden in the exercises Ann-Marie
leads you through, including putting pen to paper on YOUR definition
of wellness, discovering the importance of met and unmet needs,
and crafting your own personal credo (fun!). Ann-Marie brings
her wisdom, humor, creativity, and innate gifts of teaching and
encouraging others in self-exploration to this class every week.
She sprinkles the course material with beautiful quotes and written
excerpts to help deepen your understanding of each week’s topic.
And by the end of the class, not only will you have created a
wonderful toolbox chock full of wellness articles, books, and
exercises that will be a tremendous aid for you and your clients,
but you will have begun to live what you aim to inspire others
