Demand Has Surged.

Life Coaching is a $2.85 billion industry, but only 27% make it past one year.
80% of educators are burned out. Overwhelming workloads, large class sizes, struggling students.
Therapists, coaches & educators are clamoring for effective solutions to keep up with the unrelenting demand for their services,
That’s where the ARCH facilitation training in our framework comes in.
I was burned out professionally and personally. I was so tired all the time that I felt relieved when a client canceled an appointment. ARCH has inspired new energy in me! I want to acknowledge the commitment of the ARCH founding members & core team. I like that all of our input was genuinely considered. Thank you very much – I look forward to this new journey and to my future.
Introducing the ARCH framework of facilitation:
The SEEN™ Keystones
Through utilizing ARCH’s four keystones, SEEN, facilitators support clients feeling emotionally safe, seen and heard during learning and transformative experiences.
Sense of Self (SOS)
SOS is understanding who we are and why we are doing things. How we show up in all arenas, and in every interaction, impacts everything and we work to be aware of it from the start. It influences what we see and hear, how we perceive it, and how we intervene and engage.
Through SOS, we are preparing ourselves to have an interaction to support others in the process. Our ongoing awareness, understanding and intentional application of our SOS is a foundation for effective work.
Empowering Mindset is a belief in our clients’ innate capabilities to grow, learn and access their unique strengths and gifts. As facilitators, we engage with the client in a collaborative mindset, and support them as the expert in their own lives. They are the author of their story and we are open to the possibilities of where the story goes. Through a choice-oriented environment and empowering facilitation, we provide a safe and intentional space for client’s personal resources to be activated, to be who they are and to make uniquely personal decisions.
Our stories influence our quality of life. We have the power to learn from and rewrite those stories. Externalizing means we can experience our stories through symbols outside of ourselves. By creating space and distance from and within our stories, we see new perspectives, in an emotionally safe way. We can see, hear, touch, relate with and move the characters in our story, which changes our internal experiences and behaviors as well. When our stories change, we change.
Flow is movement. Natural flow is when a path is followed moment to moment creating a rhythm, cadence, and momentum. It is a conscious intention and a state of mind which impacts the natural fluidity of the session and each of us in the process. Flow is about acceptance and being in the present. By accepting, bridging, and building upon each moment, stories unfold in an optimal, organic and connected way. Flow enhances everything.

ARCH Session Participant
I had chronic anxiety prior to the sessions and now I have an ability to return to calm after moments of anxiety and to remain calm in the face of my boss’s anxiety. I sleep better and feel better overall.
ARCH Session Participant
I have often struggled with externalizing in a natural way since clients are so quick to go and stay internal. The story framework gives both facilitators and clients a great structure, concept and language to work with that makes externalizing and distancing easier. This is very empowering for the client. I am SO happy to have this in my toolkit and to start integrating this into our equine-assisted coaching work. Thank you!

“I really enjoyed this course, it has given me a new perspective on the use of narrative therapy and of animal assisted therapies. The principals were accessible and the videos put them into a functional context. Thanks everyone, can’t wait to get started in-person.”

I really got so much out of this training. I came home and have used ARCH’s SEEN Keystones all week with my teens at work and getting all kinds of good outcomes. Even added in some art. Thanks for all you do!
The Foundations Course was fantastic and very healing going through it. I really enjoyed the format and sessions, especially hearing feedback from all of you and the client.
For our clients with anxiety and trauma, this approach has lifted their spirits and they are coming back week after week looking forward to sessions.
