If you want a career that can positively impact someone else's life while creating your own best life, consider becoming an Empowerment Coach Certified with the S.W.A.T. Institute. 

An Empowerment Coach does far more than teach a team how to play a sport or even help someone accomplish a goal. Instead, an Empowerment Coach helps clients recognize their personal level of consciousness, dominant emotional archetype -- the Parent, the Child, the Adult -- and the way they are showing up in the different areas of their lives. 

An Empowerment Coach meets their client where they're at and then helps them break old patterns, recognize limiting beliefs, retrain the brain, and shift into higher, more empowered energy + emotions where they have a better perspective and can make better choices. We call this the Adult archetype or Woman Energy. Better choices equal better results.


When you change the way you look at people, the people you look at change.
~ Crystal Andrus Morissette

We are more than a coaching certification for women . . . 

We're a University for Women's Empowerment! 


The dictionary says empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.

But when we use the word empowerment, specifically around empowerment coaching, it is even bigger than controlling one's life and claiming one's rights. It's the power we possess, deep within, that gives us the desire, dignity, stamina, willingness, acceptance, jet fuel, reason, love, joy, and ability to do this "work," so to speak -- the work required to build strength and confidence.


We are women empowering women!

We are the next era of the women's movement.


Once you compare our curriculum, content, faculty, processes + interventions, sisterhood, mentorship coaching program, community, and price to any other coaching certification, empowerment program, or women's only courses or memberships, you will discover we lead the way, bar none!

Designed to help any woman living anywhere in the world, to first and foremost, become her most empowered, confident, authentic + Real Self -- something we call "Woman Energy" -- we then give her the tools to lead, guide, teach, help, empower, motivate, inspire, and coach others into becoming their own greatest Self! We then offer advanced business, marketing, sales, PR, and professional development so that when you graduate as a Master Empowerment Coach, you're ready to rock your career and become an industry leader. 

​Ranked #1 on Google globally, we have been empowering women since 2009 and we're in over 45 countries. Our founder, Crystal Andrus Morissette is an international bestselling author of six books, including the Emotional Edge which has been featured on three times. Our curriculum is the most comprehensive and complete, and our dedication to our students, graduates, staff, and mentorship empowerment coaching clients is unprecedented.


We would love to work with you! 

Your success is our success!


What is Empowerment Coaching?

Through a series of specific questions, processes, meditations, and interventions, exclusive to the S.W.A.T. Institute (Simply Woman Accredited Trainer), we teach our empowerment coaches how to shift their client into a more empowered place (also known as higher levels of consciousness) where they can look at the same dilemma, challenge, or frustration from a different perspective to make a more empowered decision.

We would love to teach you this powerful coaching style!

Who is the S.W.A.T. Institute?

The S.W.A.T. Institute (Simply Woman Accredited Trainer) is the premier online global empowerment coach certification exclusively for women founded in 2009 by Crystal Andrus Morissette. 

Crystal's own life is the backdrop for this unique and incredibly powerful style of coaching. They say we teach what we need to learn and after years of abuse, sexual assault, homelessness, and cervical cancer (and that was just in her teens), Crystal set on a mission to heal her legacy and change the trajectory of her life not only for herself but for her two daughters.

Crystal then committed to helping other women around the world step into their own power. Now, some 25+ years later, she has created a movement of women supporting women! And the best part, her eldest daughter Madelaine is our Director of Operations! We would love you to join us!

We at the S.W.A.T. Institute are passionate and dedicated to helping you become not only the greatest version of your Self, but to be the best coach possible! Academic, emotional, and mystical, we combine science with spirituality, Western with Eastern, all the while taking women on a journey of the Self by understanding how we interrelate, communicate and navigate our way in the world. 

The S.W.A.T. Institute is committed to bringing the most cutting-edge interventions, processes, and transformational techniques to women worldwide! Our team is top-notch including incredible, highly-educated professors and well-known guest faculty members such as Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, and Colette Baron-Reid.
