– Pam Howard

“Self Coaching Scholars has transformed my life in massive ways in just my first month. Not only am I happier (and healthier), but I also feel in total control of my life. Between her live coaching calls, Ask Brooke, the video training and manuals… I have EVERYTHING I need to create my best life. My only regret is that I didn't join the moment I heard about it. But now that I'm in – and “get it” – I'm never leaving!”

– Jeff Gardner

“Aha moments from the spot on trainings that have changed my life.”

– Aliya Levinson

“If anyone is wondering, like I was, if SCS is worth the money and time…Wonder no more. I am so glad I took a chance and joined. After 6 weeks I have realized these concrete benefits: 20 lbs lost, Four hours per week of “found” time due to a complete stop in “buffering', a successful revision of my way of managing my work load resulting in hours of time to focus on work projects. So basically in six weeks I have more time and improved health. Measurable results. In addition I have been wowed again and again at the way Brooke delivers more than I expected. Sign. Up.—Do. It.”

– Amy D'Annibale

“I love SCS because I'm finally taking the time to work on myself and this is the perfect program to really take a look what is going on in the mind and effectively make change.”

– Kari McLean

“I love Brooke's coaching, her teachings, and the sense of being in this program to better myself and be a better coach.”

– Rebekah Anderson

– Margaret Andriani

“On 9/13, I received the result of my A1C, which came back as 6.5, diagnosis: officially diabetic. My father passed at 60 from diabetes complications; it is stated on the death certificate after which every other heart and circulatory malady is listed. I panicked and I joined scholars that day. In early October, my doctor said this could not be conquered by diet alone and that even with medication, I would be lucky if it was under 6.1 the next time I took the test. If it came back under 6.1, she would consider taking me off medication. On 12/7, my A1C came back at 5.6, which is normal, albeit by a tenth of a point. I went from diabetic range and skipped under the whole pre-diabetic range. My doctor was stunned. Condensed, this is what she said: ‘This doesn't happen…this is unheard of…you could not expect a better result…fantastic…amazing…don't expect it to get any better than this.' My impossible goal for 2018 was set that day. Thank you to Brooke, of course, and to all the coaches and tutors, as well as to all who post their questions both here in Ask Brooke and during the Stop Overeating calls. I cannot believe what I did in three months in 2017. Looking forward to posting about my next test result. Namaste.”

– Self Coaching Scholar

“I love getting to take my understanding of the material to the next level and implement the tools.”

– Jami Scott

– Mary Derlacki

– Maree White

“The Self Coaching Scholars materials and approach have been life changing. The program extends the concepts, context and learnings from the podcasts into real-time access to Brooke!”

– Kyla Martin

“Whatever bothers you. Whatever pulsates in you and haven't blossomed yet. Whatever causes your face to sag with anxiety, Self Coaching Scholars is a complete new zip code that surpassed everything I imagined when I dreamed of a possible imaginary country I will arrive at if I would just be given the right direction. The country Brooke Castillo helps you arrive at, is one that can’t be found on the conventional map. It's your unique terra incognita that will reveal itself month-by-month as you are been shown a new way. Where I'm at right now, everything is imbued with a better taste and beauty, kinder understanding and unforeseen accomplishments. If you listen closely to your beating heart and hear that whisper, you would know you only need to click ‘join' and within that click you opened a rare opportunity to transform yourself to anything you could possibly become.”

– Kika Stayerman

“It is really thorough. A deep dive into one topic per month. It allows me to feel like I can really master the material and stay focused. The workbooks are incredible and I love the daily assignments to really stay on track.”

– Katie Pulsifer

“It gives me quality tools to become the best version of myself. This program has literally changed my life in ways I have been dreaming for years. Today, I've lost 25lbs, got married, became a “bonus mom”, quit my 9-5 job, started my business again that I've tried and failed miserably at before, quit drinking alcohol, and forgiven my parents for an abusive childhood. Not only have I seen these amazing results but even better I feel full of joy and excitement on a daily basis, fear and worry no longer controls my life. This program has literally changed my life beyond my expectations. Thank you Brooke for your commitment to providing value. I can't wait to see where we will be by the end of this year. I'm going to blow my own mind!”

– Whitney Roehl (Joeckel)

“Had no idea how I was going to pay for this program. In less than a month got 5 jobs handed to me on a platter. I think I did the right thing. LOVE. IT.”

– Angie H

“I love the Self Coaching Scholars (SCS) program. The program has given me a real insight to why I spend way too much time playing computer/facebook games or eating when I am not hungry. SCS has also taught me how to deal with my feeling instead of buffering with something else! I feel more confident as I am starting up my own business and losing weight all at once!”

– Amanda Mueller

“Self Coaching Scholars provides a turnkey framework to study and successfully apply Brooke's coaching to my own life. I can honestly say that I've experienced equally profound insights by observing others being coached on the call, as I have being part of an eight person coaching group with Brooke and being coached by Brooke in that setting. I have made more personal progress working with these concepts and applying them to my life than through the decades I've spent talking about them and working on them in other contexts. I notice the difference in how I act, how I feel and the results I see in my life, in significant weight loss and most importantly in my relationships. All this while Brooke makes me laugh!”

– Marguerite Neuhaus

“Awesome, cost effective way to interact with Brooke and all her fabulous materials. It's truly changing my life!”

– Jyll Katofsky

“Brooke's model and her approach to an issue is helping me with issues large and small. I am calmer lately, and if I'm not, I now know how to get there.”

– Carolyn Buppert

“In February I watched Brooke’s Overeating video and she blew my mind. She said that our thoughts cause feelings that cause actions Wait Whaaaattt? I can control my actions by changing my own thoughts? That is Brilliant! I joined Self Coaching Scholars that same evening, and now I am blowing my OWN mind. Brooke is giving me an abundance of tools, but I am doing the work! I am learning so much about myself and realize that I have the power to change my own life. And the best part – I learned that I had the power all along. BEST. PROGRAM. EVER. Forever Grateful.”

– Karen Tennant

“We have been thoroughly enjoying and benefiting from the Self Coaching Scholars program. It has exceeded our expectations in terms of how much we are growing through the principles shared by Brooke and others. The strategies and understanding related to managing our thinking has been especially invaluable. Also, we are impressed by how much Brooke has provided – she truly over delivers. The many resources allow us to choose areas to work on that are priority to us. For example, the course on Overeating has been an unexpected blessing that has helped us lose a combined 30 pounds in about 6 weeks and we feel confident there is more to come. So in addition to feeling and looking healthier, the foundation is there to do additional thought-work to tackle the emotional roots that lead to overeating. And the principles we are using in that case will carry over to other areas of our lives as well. Thanks for giving so much, Brooke and coaches We really appreciate you and look forward to the rest of the year!”

– K and Z DelToro

“Self-coaching Scholars made an immediate difference in my life. After struggling with weight for years, I rid myself of my sugar and flour dependency and lost 22 pounds within two months. I no longer want sugary foods, even when they are right in front of me. Also, I finished my manuscript ahead of schedule after months of dithering and moaning about how hard it was going to be. I completely changed the way I manage my day, and every night I go to bed proud of my accomplishments and grateful. Brooke and her program are amazing. It is worth so much more than the price of admission.”

– Dory Bertsche

“Brooke, her teachings, her coaches and the Self Coaching Scholars program propelled me to get successfully out of prediabetes and to lose the last 9 pounds I have been trying to lose for the last 20 years.”

– Jane Springer

“SCS is saving my life! I have tried so many avenues to grow, develop, heal, and change. Some things worked, some things did not work and others worked minimally. SCS is working in every area of my life and I am just getting started! SCS and Brooke are the real deal.”

– Doris Howell

“SCS has been the single most effective program I have ever studied! I am doing the work and my life has improved so much!!! It blows my mind how a shift in thinking has finally given me the results I have worked toward my entire adult life. Thank you!!! Thank you for sharing your insight with me through SCS!!”

– Elizabeth Elliott

“I finally accomplished my first blow-my-own-damn-mind goal: competed in my first triathlon (short course). 50 years old. It was all Brooke said it would be: fear, doubt, buffer, do it anyway! It was over-the-top incredible!”

– Delores Garcia

“Brooke taught me how to quit thinking of who I wanted to be and actually start becoming the person I always was meant to be.”

– Corrine Crabtree

“Because Brooke doesn't tell me what I want to hear, she tells me what I need to hear. I also like that the action steps and homework that she gives us is simple, like-you-don't-think-it's-going-to-be-effective ‘simple', but when you do it, and do it consistently, it ends up helping you breakthrough old mindsets, which inevitably causes you to become more powerful. Basically, she challenges me and as a result of her challenges, I grow more as a person. I've had other coaches in my life (none at this level) and at times, I've felt this desire to become them. I've never felt that way with Brooke, I respect her as a leader and my coach, and I admire some of her characteristics, yet I don't desire to become her. I'm more interested in getting to know myself better, deciding who I want to be, and becoming more of that woman every single day. Also, the support staff, (a.k.a. Erika Ruybalid) is the best, always so kind and patient, even when those occasional technical alligators happen. In essence, I am enjoying my Self Coaching Scholars membership, I find the material exceptional and I highly recommend it.”

– Melodee Forbes

“It has helped me harness the most powerful tool I have (my brain) to create the most fulfilling life possible!”

– Leslie Smith

“I have been listening to Brooke's podcast since the beginning, have been coached by one of her incredible coaches, and am enrolled in Self Coaching Scholars. I consider every minute and dollar I have spent on coaching with The Life Coach School to have returned the investment to me a hundred-fold. Brooke's work and message — that your thoughts create your world and you determine your thoughts — helped me out of a major mid-life crisis and got me back in gear to make progress in my work and life and to enjoy the process again. Using the tools and practices Brooke and her team have created, I've become a happier, healthier person and a better mom, wife, friend, and citizen. It's a road I never want to stop traveling. Want to be excited about your life again? Get with the Life Coach School!”

– Gretchen Donehower

“Self Coaching Scholar is perfect for anyone who is starting to ask themselves questions. Since joining in Jan I have made more progress and gained more insight than I have in years. Brooke and her tutors are amazing, I feel completed supported and safe to unpack years of judgement and shame. Best investment I have ever made!”

– Claire Pallot

“Thanks for helping me lose 27lbs Brooke! Life changing, can't thank you enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

– Jenny Couse

“By being able to allow my anxiety around public speaking, I was able to do 3 live local news interviews, weekly FB live videos, and speaking events, which resulted in 6 new coaching clients.”

– Melanie Shmois

“In one month I set up my entire coaching business. I am pretty amazed by all that I have accomplished by just doing my daily homework – no drama. I now use the model daily (hourly). And, I no longer let myself be a victim of my own thinking.”

– Barbara Isaac Croce

“I don't wait anymore to feel inspired to work or create. I just plan it out and get it done now. I’ve upleveled my business as a yoga teacher and author. In general, I take myself more seriously while having an absolute blast living this beautiful life.”

– Erin Aquin

“I run a business and I know that when the leading head is doing well, everything is fine. I was looking for tools to help me manage my mind and my brain to grow my business. In 9 months, I have regained my enthusiasm and my sharp mind. I found an ideal business partner, created a 10 year business plan, and my business is growing to the next level. My employees are so amazed at my results that they asked me to give them a talk on Brooke's program.”

– Natalie Bibeau

“I met my 2017 revenue goal in early September, almost four months ahead of schedule. Creating time to focus on my business in a meaningful way has freed up even more time to focus on expansion. I've taught a local class for four years and because of Scholars, I'm now preparing to launch an online class which will double my revenue. Instead of spending my busy season in a state of overwhelm, I am focused, calm and ready to make this year the most successful of my 13-year career.”

– Christine Plamann

“I’ve become so much more organized with my time, my physical space, my habits, and my mind. I feel healthier, happier, more empowered, and more confident than I did before.”

– Pam Howard

“Going through Scholars taught me about what love truly means. I applied all Brooke's tools on relationships and it completely changed our marriage. I stopped seeking my husband's attention to feel validated and lovable. I learned to love myself and not take on his emotions. Our marriage is on a whole new level now.”

– Kendra Huffman

“The self-coaching model is like glorious water to a thirsty soul – I moved beyond depression and suicidal thoughts/plans, and I'm so much lighter and more peaceful. I know I can handle anything now because I've learned how to handle my emotions and not run away from them.”

– Emily Washburn

“Self Coaching Scholars has given me the staircase to up my game. I had listened to all the podcasts and even took notes, but having questions and work to do daily and weekly, wow! I took myself off antidepressant drug and quit people-pleasing – it's been the most freeing experience.”

– Kari McLean

“I had been distracting myself with Facebook for 3 hours a day, sometimes more. Through Self Coaching Scholars I learned that this was a form of buffering. I am not buffering with Facebook and it has been life changing to have walked away.”

– Andrea Pozi

“I am 48 yrs old and I am now my own best friend. Who’s got my back? I do! It is priceless. What I have learned through Scholars has changed me and my entire life in deep, profound ways.”

– Emily Claver

“I don't go round and round about something bothering me – I model it; I move on. I have a plan for my work future, which includes using social media and tech that I wasn't comfortable with before Scholars. I have less anxiety about aging.”

– Anonymous

“I have never felt more successful at being a mom. When my baby was born I wasn't sure I could do it. I fought to control this tiny human and was just waiting for things to be better. I've never felt more myself and I feel prepared to handle anything and really show up in this world. I feel like there is so much possibility.”

– Jami Scott

“I’m now a 52 year old women with dreams that I can touch. I know that I have thoughts that aren’t always healthy for me. And I know I can change them. I understand that this is hard stuff, but the most powerful knowledge I’ve gained is that I can do hard stuff.”

– Gina Tveten

“I used the work that we did in May on relationships, to choose to fall in love with my husband again. He is still the same guy doing the same stuff that used to make me think we were doomed. After working hard using the tools I’ve transformed my marriage.”

– Jennie Scobyn

“I carry around Brookes' writings in my wallet: “Nothing has gone wrong. This is for you. You win from this. You've got this. All is well”. Those 5 phrases feel so true for me now at a core level, whereas before this program they felt intellectually clear but not internalized. Those sentences now live inside me.”

– Claudia M Chang

“What I had not been able to overcome with 3 years of therapy and 5 therapists, Brooke taught me in less than a month. I learned I could handle the emotions, I could examine my thoughts, I could create new thoughts and new results. I didn’t have to rely on anyone else to walk me through it.”

– Samantha Carlsen

“I learned that it is ok to be afraid and that I am able to be with fear and anxiety without having to eat or buffer otherwise. This was the most valuable part for me, as most of my mental health issues and various other problems arose from me running away from anxiety.”

– Corinna Jäger

“I am waking up! I am learning to love myself more deeply and unconditionally. Life has gone from grayscale to vibrant color. I am learning to cry for the first time in my life. It's beautiful!”

– Wendy Mather

“Through the work with Scholars I have been able to actually enjoy my job and not react to my coworkers. I come home with so much more mental energy.”

– Suzanne Smith

“Scholars has brought commitment and discipline to my life. I have the understanding that this is an investment in building my capabilities and in turn, my confidence. At times, I still feel self-conscious and doubtful, but I’m learning to feel it and take action anyway – it’s all working. I’m helping people with the content on my website. I’m writing. I’m teaching. I’m coaching.”

– Angie Merced

“My day to day responses to almost every interaction have changed. I am aware and focused. I use the self coaching tools every day, all day long. Scholars has improved my relationships, my business, my coaching, my impact. I am stronger mentally and happier.”

– Rena AJ Huber

“I smile more. I laugh more. I have more energy both from eating better, massive action to propel me forward and just happiness in general. While I still have work to do in changing many, many lives of other autistic moms – I know that I am on the right path.”

– Gina Baker

“The month that we did ‘Dare of the Day’ was huge for me. That is when I started to really take action. I took my website/facebook page, Instagram and Twitter Live. I had two articles published, and I started a Continuing Education workshop at my local high school teaching Brooke's Model.”

– Annette Quarrier

“I've had a lot of regrets around some previous decisions made on investments in the stock market and buying our first home. Both of these events took place right before the stock market crash and the housing market crash. I had a lot of “I should have…” feelings. Those events always sat so heavy, but now I've been able to move onward by not living in the past and taking those learnings into the future.”

– Jen Aquino

“Brooke's approach to managing thoughts has been transformative. I wanted to start living more and wanted to see what I could achieve. I revamped my financial plan with the advice of 2 different and competing people – decided not to buy another investment (and dealt with the displeasure of consultant/friend), increased my insurance and voluntary payments to mortgage and retirement. I used to think I was bad with money!”

– Kate Parker

“I know I never have to binge again, drink again, beat myself up again. I have the tools to pursue anything I want in life. I am learning how to feel my feelings. I have better relationships. I blow my own mind daily and I know I can do this again and again for the rest of my life.”

– Lynn Grogan

“With the help/tools/resources, I have been able to identify and start living my life's purpose. Being in control of how much and when I drink has honestly blown my mind because drinking/partying has always been such a part of my identity. Letting go of this story about myself has been very scary and yet empowering.”

– Caroline Holke

“I have lost all my weight, 50 pounds at almost 68 years old. I used to drink at least a bottle of wine a night and my desire to drink has almost completely gone away. My relationship with my husband has improved to the point he asked me if I was having an affair because my attitude had changed so much toward him!”

– Durita Mcmahon

“Brooke promised a different life in one year. At the time I thought that was a lovely thought, but we would see…. now do I see – amazing! I've started my business, reduced my drinking, lost those pesky last pounds, increased my energy and met some awesome new people along the way!”

– Michelle A. Bourque

“I decided to get out of my comfort zone to learn new things. I bought hiking gear and joined Sierra Club hikes. I have also ventured out on my own. I bought a mountain bike and have pedaled trails near me. I have quit drinking using the tools you taught me. I plan every day with a list and I stick to it.”

– Lisa Drottar

“I’ve gained control over my “drinking thinking using the tools in the Stop Overdrinking workshop. My dad is an alcoholic, so I've had fears of heading that direction. I really wanted to get control over my thinking around it. My goal was always to drink less, but I never seemed to have any real success in the past. This year in SCS I’ve made amazing progress in using my prefrontal cortex to plan my drinking, reduce desire, and cut out about 90% of my alcohol consumption. I never thought that was possible. I've also been testing myself in new situations by attending parties and events without alcohol which is a first for me!”

– Jen Aquino

“I have tried support groups, therapy, and all health care options. The Scholars work is what finally transformed my anxiety, and this is not an exaggeration. My skin is considerably clearer, I look younger! Food is so easy now (I love this), I lost 25 pounds. My confidence is so much greater than I ever imagined – I have taken larger risks!”

– Anna Rodrigues

“I have learned so much, I have accomplished so much. I've lost over 40kgs, I’ve coached over 160 clients, and I am on day 90 of continuous exercise (I haven't exercised in years), I’m off blood thinners, heart and blood pressure medications. I’m exceeding my business goals every month! Scholars has truly has been an awakening.”

– Natasha Willison-Reardon

“I had been searching for a way to understand what was holding me back, and Scholars has been a game changer. I use every type of tool in one way or another and I’ve lost 40 pounds, stopped putting in hours and hours weekends for my job, and made a process flow for house cleaning. Done. And done.”

– Amy D'Annibale

“Without your program, I would likely have lived the rest of my life with sub-optimal mental and physical health. I would have never known how much better my life could be. My frequent cycles of depression are almost gone! I finally got down to the “skinny” clothes I was saving from 15 years ago, and they are too big! I can wear a bikini! I am much happier in my marriage. I am a much kinder and more patient mother. I know that everyone is doing the best they can, including me.”

– Ivy Sun

“Thank you. You have saved my life. The irony is, I save lives for a living. Yet, I had never thought to save my own. I take the tools and knowledge you have given me to make my life so much better. I lost 30 pounds, I’ve taken a break from drinking alcohol, I’ve improved relationships with myself, husband, and co-workers.”

– Valerie Bestland

“The freedom from food addiction has been something I have wanted my entire life. Every day I wake up giddy that I have given myself the gift of being at goal weight for so long and finally forever.”

– Margaret Hosterman

“I joined Scholars in June and am so amazed at the progress I have made in just 6 months. I've lost 30 pounds and am learning how to manage my emotions in a healthy way, rather than using food to cope with negative events and feelings. No other weight loss program I've done has addressed emotional eating and taught mind management strategies to overcome this difficult piece of weight management.”

– Katherine Kugler

“I was looking for “my” coach. Scholars was the answer. I love that I have a framework, the model, of course for anything that comes up. It's like ‘oh I have the model, everything is no big deal, I can handle it, I've got this’.”

– Laura Conley

“Self Coaching Scholars has changed the trajectory of my entire family. Just today I received calls from both my mom and my brother wanting to run models on issues they were having.”

– Christina Kolb

“Every time I see Brooke coaching on live video sessions, I learn something valuable about myself. Brooke is the epitome of what it looks like to show up as your authentic self every day, embracing each moment, and forever teaching me the lesson that our lives are going to suck 50% of the time, so embrace those times knowing that the other 50% is going to be amazing.”

– Gail Tolbert

“Receiving the envelope with my new Scholars materials each month is the most favorite thing I get in the mail. Everything can be solved with the model. Whenever I encounter an issue, the CTFAR model is in my head and I can always find the answer there.”

– Margaret Hosterman

“I have taken advantage of being coached live with Brooke and learning from watching her coach others. Getting coached on Ask Brooke has also been very helpful for me. I think in both scenarios I'm able to work through a model or sticking point much quicker than on my own.”

– Suzanne Smith

“I feel like I have the secret to life and I have all tools I need to keep growing and evolving. I realized the power of my thinking and I feel so empowered to create the results I want. I am excited about my future because I know that I can do anything.”

– Arianna Vargas

“I love how Brooke combines coaching and teaching. I love the Self Coaching Scholars model. I was able to coach live with Brooke and in about 15 minutes, she healed a major issue in my life…a deep rooted mom thing. Pretty big stuff, if you ask me.”

– Randi Rubenstein

I'm so glad I signed up for SCS. This is my second month and I'm noticing big shifts in my thoughts, feelings, actions, and results. And other people in my life are noticing too.

Before joining, I felt stagnant. I felt bored. Now, I feel alive. I feel empowered. I feel centered. Of course, I still get upset, sad, angry, but I know it's OK to have those feelings and that I am the one who is the thinking the thoughts behind them and I can decide to let them go or change them.

I feel like I've been looking for this kind of coaching my entire life. I used to love Oprah when I was a kid. As a teenager, I felt like I couldn't control my emotions and was prone to outbursts. I searched for years for books, articles, advice, to help me understand my brain and my emotions better. And then I found SCS. I am so thankful for what you and your fellow coaches are doing, Brooke. Even though I'm two months in, I can already tell this work has changed my life in such profound ways that I'm only beginning to understand. THANK YOU!
