We all know that women are different than men — from our bodies, brains, and hormones to our emotional demands and daily challenges. We’ve walked a very different journey over the past 10,000 years, with an explosion of duality occuring over the past 100 years and because of it, we need specialized programs developed exclusively for us–to heal, to learn, to grow, and to expand our lives and our consciousness. To heal our wounds, make peace with our past, and to move forward with love and joy.
The S.W.A.T. Institute is committed to bringing the most cutting-edge interventions, processes, and transformational techniques to women worldwide! Our premier designation is our Master Empowerment Coach Certification (MECC).
Created for the life-long learner (the woman dedicated to self-actualization as well as improving the lives of others), the Master Empowerment Coach Certification is everything you’ve always wanted in a coaching certification and more!
Academic, emotional, and mystical, we combine science with spirituality, Western with Eastern, all the while taking women on a journey of the Self–understanding how we interrelate, communicate, and navigate our way in the world.
Incredibly healing, motivating, and empowering, this program will lead you into the greatest expression of who you are! Divided into three modules, we cover every single aspect of empowerment: physically, emotionally, financially, mentally, relationally and spiritually.
We have women enrolled from all over the world—some who are fresh out of university, all the way to the 60+-year-old woman who has no post-secondary education but who knows her life and wisdom matters.
We empower all women from all walks of life! We are the next era of the women’s movement and we are dedicated to our global coalition for women!
I began training at The S.W.A.T. Institute with a particular idea of what it was and it has BLOWN me away by being a millions times more and deeper than I ever imagined! I feel so connected here and so honored to know all of you and share my journey alongside my SiSTARS!

What is Empowerment Coaching?
Our Master Empowerment Coach Certification has a faculty that is first-class! Students have an opportunity to learn from some of the most empowered teachers, authors, and leaders in the world today: Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Colette Baron-Reid, Crystal Andrus Morissette, Sandra Anne Taylor, Gregg Braden, and more.
Our lifelong sisterhood of encouragement and inspiration is mind-blowing; a safe place to explore yourself, while learning the empowerment coaching process! The S.W.A.T. Institute is the cream of the crop!
I am very happy to say that I am a recent graduate of the Simply Woman Accredited Trainer Institute. I first came upon the founder, Crystal Andrus Morissette, about 3 years ago. I was completely drawn in when I saw her video on this website; I knew this program was exactly what I had been looking for. It really resonated with me.
I also knew I had a gift for listening and creating that ‘space’ for others but I did not want to take just any three-day life-coaching program!! The S.W.A.T. Institute’s Master Empowerment Coach Certification’s curriculum is brilliant; it gave me all the tools I needed to become an excellent empowerment coach.
The best part about this program is that I had to deal with my own ‘stuff’ in order to be able to authentically help other women. I was able to heal my inner child, take off masks that kept the real me hidden from myself and my loved ones. I discovered what my limiting beliefs were and how I was putting up my own road blocks in all areas of my life. Learning self-love and self-compassion has also allowed me to expand into the greatest version of who I am. This is a love that continuously flows outwards to my family, loved ones, and in every other relationship.
The S.W.A.T. siSTARhood — another magnificent component exclusively to this program — is an online supportive community that provided me a safe space to voice my feelings, my anger, and my fears–all without judgment.
Another important component of this certification is the Mentorship Coaching program. I had the privilege to coach women from all over the world — India, United States, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada. I also was able to receive coaching from my peers — women from all over the world!
Even now that I have graduated, I still have access to all this and more like the continuous education that is offered. By choosing to take this program I have realized that it is truly the best investment I have made for myself.
I would say that if you hear and trust that little intuitive voice inside and you are ready to heal, to feel whole, and want to help women on a global level…this program is for you! Enjoy the journey, stay the course…you are so worth it!

The Three Modules
Our Master Empowerment Coach Certification is composed of three modules:
Module One: Building The Temple
“Your body is your vehicle for being; when it’s not working properly it’s fairly certain that nothing in your life will work properly either.” The first module, Building the Temple, is the most academic of all three modules because it is imperative that our coaches understand the connection between body, mind, and spirit.
The body is the messenger, showing us when things are out of alignment. Designed to teach you the fundamentals of women’s health and wellness, this module will give you a comprehensive understanding of the workings of the body and mind. Learning from brilliant women such as Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Mona Lisa Schultz, Beverly Pickard, Priya Sharma, as well as Registered Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator and The Dean of our school, Yvonne MacRae, you will be amazed at your new-found knowledge and education of Nutrition, Exercise Physiology, Fitness, Weight loss, Mental health, Psychology, and Women’s health & wellness.
The extraordinary part is the consistent and steady feedback from your Professors on all your assignments, helping you to understand the intricacies of your body and mind that will energize and invigorate you! Your knowledge and expertise will excite and motivate both you and your coaching clients!
Once you power through this first module, you are well on your way to tackling, perhaps, the most exciting part of the program, Module Two: The Empowerment Process.
Before I met Crystal Andrus Morissette and her work, the field of coaching and self-growth was a mystery for me.
With my PhD in Microbiology and Natural Sciences and as a professional athlete (I competed in two Olympic games), I have been taught that our reality is determined by our five senses and that life just happens to us.
Crystal’s coaching had really shaken my way of approaching life. I realized that we create our reality with our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs, and that every year some additional layers are accumulated on our pure and authentic spirit. I realized that only ‘I’ am in charge of my life. She helped me to find out who I really am, what my needs are and deep desires are, along with what fears are preventing me from having the life of my dreams. Starting to speak my truth has had a big impact on my life.
I didn’t have any expectations before starting with Crystal but I was amazed the gentle way she guides you through this process. Personal transformation just happened in such a natural way. I realized how my relationship with others transformed when I changed the way I was thinking and I speaking to myself.
~ Dr. Klara Maucec, PhD, 2-time Olympic Competitor, S.W.A.T. Master Empowerment Coach
Learning directly from our Founder, Crystal Andrus Morissette and Professor Izabela Viskupova, as well as other guest faculty members such as Louise Hay, Gregg Braden, Colette Baron-Reid, Sandra Anne Taylor, and Marianne Williamson, Module Two is where you learn, step-by-step, what empowered communication looks, sounds, and feels like — in every aspect of life.
Using Dr. David Hawkin’s “Map of Consciousness” as a guideline to understanding emotional empowerment, along with listening to many of past recorded “real” coaching calls and watching video lectures explaining the healing interventions, empowering meditations, and coaching processes needed to shift someone from shame and guilt, up through blame, grieving, fear, desire, anger and pride into courage, willingness, and love, this module takes you through every aspect of understanding your Self and your life (the choices you’ve made and why you’ve made them), while also teaching you how to coach other women through their struggles and self-limiting beliefs.
Module Two, Section Two opens you up to the Mentorship Coaching Program, where you will work in tandem with Professor Izabela Viskupova — who is not only a graduate of our Master Empowerment Coach Certification, she has a Master’s Degree in both Law and Psychology. Professor Izabela is dedicated to helping you conquer our unique and specialized coaching process as you practice your skills with women that we provide you to coach; she has created a series of magnificent lectures and videos outlining specific coaching interventions and why and how you will use them when coaching others. She spends time listening to your practice Mentorship Calls and then together you will critique them to master your weakness and catapult on your strengths!
By the time you enter Module Three, your confidence, courage, and skill-set will blow you away!
The final module—also known as the Business Behind the Business—teaches smart, savvy, successful marketing strategies that will challenge you to perform at your highest level. Every topic is designed to turn your higher purpose into a high profiting business.
The BBB will teach you everything you need to know about how to create and sustain a successful coaching practice, including media, marketing, speaking, and developing your own courses or teleseminars. No stone unturned, Professor Elizabeth Gorostiza (our very first graduate) works directly with you in developing your own successful business plan and website. Plus, you can listen to a series of calls held by Crystal Andrus Morissette that cover topics such as “Success Consciousness vs. Failure Consciousnes”, “The Clearer You Are the Clearer Your Client Will Be”, “How Much Money Do You Want To Make”, “How to Network and Build a Mastermind Group”, “What are Your Seeds of Desire”, “What Do You Think You’re Worth”, “Be Your Authentic Self in Business”, “Find Sponsorship & Partnership”, “The Art of Negotiation and Compromise”, and “The Time to Plant and The Time to Harvest” just to name a few! The overflow of information, education and enlightenment is incredible!
Again, you’ll get consistent and steady feedback from your Professor on all your assignments and quizzes, helping you to understand the intricacies of your business in a way you never could on your own.
The S.W.A.T. Institute has become a place where we ‘siSTARs’ have become family with the love and support from our founder, Crystal Andrus Morissette’. Some of us come broken, looking for help to heal our wounded selves; this is a place where we are all able to grow and heal.
Through this course, we not only learn how to empower other women, we learn how to love ourselves, to overcome our hardships, and become the women we were truly meant to be.
Through it all, we learn to coach other women and help them overcome their struggles as we empower them to be their own greatest good.
If you want to really learn how to love your Self and to be ‘happy again’, join The S.W.A.T. Institute’s Master Empowerment Coach Certification program! You won’t be disappointed … our ‘family’ offers love, education, and support!

Our private Facebook Group, alone, offers women a safe place to share anything
One of the most unique and special aspects of The S.W.A.T. Institute is our private forum where our students — or as we call them “siSTARs” — connect with, share, care, and support each other. No matter what is going on in their lives, each woman gets the loving advice, feedback, validation, and support she needs. We truly are a global coalition of empowered women!
Once you graduate from the Master Empowerment Coach Certification, you can then join “The Crystal Club”
The Crystal Club is a post-graduate program that focuses on each Master Graduate’s individual business, along with group collaborations on Simply Woman Retreats, Magazine articles, TeleSummits, Events, and Courses; we promote to our entire database through webinars, teleseminars, and broadcasts, including featured spots in our SimplyWomanMagazine.
What is the Difference Between the Master and Personal Empowerment Coach Certifications?
The S.W.A.T. Institute is unlike any program in the world today. We are not just an educational course or certification; we are the ultimate in self-healing, personal empowerment, and professional development.
Pursuing my S.W.A.T. Master Empowerment Coach Certification has been the most rewarding investment of my life. As a student approaching the end of the program, I would recommend this course to every woman. I began with the intent of enhancing my personal life for the benefit of myself and my family. Like taking a degree in ‘me’, the entire course has helped me to truly know my body, mind, heart, and soul; surpassing my expectations and giving me everything I need to navigate my ‘one wild and precious life.’
Much to my surprise, I’ve also discovered that coaching perfectly aligns with my professional dreams, so I’m now taking the leap to become a coach. I believe the coaching and business skills taught, in such a spirit of wisdom and generosity, are all that I need to launch a thriving coaching practice.
I have received more from this program than I have from any other educational investment, including my university degree, leadership certification, and professional training. The books, resources, assignments, videos, calls, mentorship coaching, on-line forums, practice coaching and professor interaction all equate to a life-changing and incomparable opportunity.
I’ll admit these sound like lofty promises, but for me they have all been true, and I am forever grateful.
