The MEBES© Model

The entire sex coach training is based on MEBES© Model developed by the Mother of Sex Coaching, Dr. Patti Britton. early in her sex coaching practice.

Dr. Patti didn’t think the old models took the client far enough, which is why she wanted a holistic model that addresses the five areas in which a person or sexual relationship can become blocked, and then liberated.

MEBES Model, sex coaching, sex coach training

Mind, Emotions, Body, Energy, Spirit.

Sexuality is an integral part of being human and interacts with every other facet of our being. You’ll learn to work with your clients as whole people and help them integrate their sexuality into their entire lives, so they can begin to live more authentically, healed and whole.

The MEBES© Model gives you a proven, repeatable model to guide your work with clients.

This will be your framework and you’ll be encouraged to bring your own style to your sex coaching practice.

You really can make it your own and become the change you want to see in the world.

Our Triadic Training Model:

Clinical Sexology, Co-Active Coaching, and Integrated Sex Coaching

Sex Coach U's Triadic Training Model

The Certified Sex Coach™ Core Curriculum in delivered in four Modules, each of which consists of elements of our comprehensive approach to earning your Certified Sex Coach™ credential. The program features a triadic modality, and covers coursework in the three categories of SexologyCoaching, and our unique Integrated Sex Coaching courses, which synthesize and extend what you learn in the Sexology and Coaching courses for an even richer experience. 

Our complementary program, the Business of Sex Coaching, will teach you what you need to know to create and launch a successful sex coaching practice immediately after graduation.

When you become a Certified Sex Coach™ at graduation, you will be a qualified, competent sex coach, and you’ll feel confident in your ability to launch a profitable business while living your passion.

Here’s how it works

You study at home, at your own pace with an assigned student advisor assessing your progress and a fellow student study buddy. This is your Support & Accountability Team, helping you stay focused as you progress through the program.

Throughout your journey, you also have access to our vibrant student and graduate online community.

Together, we all support and encourage each other along the way.

SAR training, Sex Coach U

You’ll complete 21 in-depth and up-to-date courses in 4 Modules, in which you’ll learn the fundamentals of clinical sexology and co-active coaching, and our unique Integrated Sex Coaching courses, which synthesize and extend what you learn in the Sexology and Coaching courses for an even richer experience. You’ll also complete a program of study on sex coaching business success.

As part of your studies, you complete a study journal for each course (including your business studies courses). At the end of each Module, you’ll submit a workbook summarizing your take-aways from each course. This will be reviewed by your Student Adviser.

Unlike many other business training programs, you’ll have direct feedback from a live human being as you learn and build your business to help you achieve success.

Your Stellar Core Curriculum

When you enroll at Sex Coach U, your Core Certified Sex Coach training will be delivered in four Modules, each of which consists of coursework in the three categories of Sexology, Coaching, and our unique Integrated Sex Coaching courses, which synthesize and extend what you learn in the Sexology and Coaching courses for an even richer experience.

Mentoring & Group Coaching

Beginning this Spring, you’ll have the option to join one (or more) of twice monthly, live group mentoring and group coaching sessions with your Student Advisor and fellow students!

These sessions give you the opportunity to develop deep connections with other members of the community. You also get to interact directly with your Student Advisor for feedback, insight, and support.

Live Training

In addition to the complete online program, we offer two intensive live trainings as part of your experience at Sex Coach U.

SAR training, sex coach u, sex coach training

SAR Training

The Sexual Attitude Reassessment and Restructuring (SAR) training is a required training in the field of sexology. The American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT)* has long required a SAR for certification. So does Sex Coach U.

Dr Patti Britton, in addition to being the original sex coach and the past-president of AASECT, is a world-recognized SAR leader. She has delivered over 55 SARs around the world, each one of them powerful, deeply moving, and professionally illuminating. She has trained a small, select group of SAR facilitators, too.

This will be part of your experience at Sex Coach U.

You’ll spend two days in a live online training event, surrounded by your peers, gaining the crucial sensitivity skills to work with the deeply vulnerable subject of sexuality.

Taking a SAR is required to earn your certification from Sex Coach U. Due to the current pandemic where live training options are limited, we are offering online SAR trainings. Click the button below to learn more, or send an email to our team at

ASPEX training, Sex Coach U

ASPEX Training

If SAR leaves you hungry for MORE—more personal exploration, more examination of your own sexual values, attitudes, and beliefs, more community, more retreat—then you’ll love also coming to ASPEX.

Once each year, a small group of sexologists meets for six days and five nights in a pristine natural setting to dive deep into the sexual soul. Guided by Dr Patti Britton and the MEBES© Model, they have the rare and important opportunity to heal the healer.

Working with human sexuality, holding non-judgmental, transformational space for the healing of others is POWERFUL work.

Our work is demanding and it challenges you to practice self-care.

Remember that you are a separate, sexual individual on your own journey, even as you guide the journeys of others.

When you are ready, you can claim this time and space for yourself in the Advanced Sexological Personal Exploration Experience (ASPEX). Sex Coach U does not require ASPEX for graduation.

Participation is optional because you must be ready before ASPEX is for you.

Community Webinars

We celebrate our diverse and global community, which we strengthen every month by gathering online. We are together, no matter where we are in the world.

Each month, you’ll get to attend and participate live (or watch the recording) in two or three information-packed webinars on the latest developments in sexology and on business building and career growth to make your practice a smashing success.

You’ll learn directly from either members of the Sex Coach U team or allied professionals who are at the top of their game.

Global Facebook community

In between calls and live events, you’ll be able to reach out any time, day or night, wherever you are, to the thriving private Facebook community that brings together current students, graduates, and World Association of Sex Coaches members from 70+ countries around the world.

You’ll get support and encouragement to keep you on track with your studies.

You can find collaborators for projects.

You can get advice and different perspectives on any of the topics you’re studying.

All you have to do is ask.

Live Practicum Demonstration

As you approach graduation, you might wonder: Am I ready to do this?

Before you graduate, you demonstrate skills by completing a live practicum in order to become a sex coach.

This is your Supervision component of the program– to be sure that you have the competency to work with clients 1:1.

You receive honest feedback all along the way from your personal Student Advisor, who is an experienced, practicing sex coach, which will give you the CONFIDENCE to go out and walk your talk.

If you’re not ready, we tell you and guide you in how to improve your knowledge or skills, or to increase your self-confidence.

This is how you will know.

This isn’t just any sex coach training.

This is smart and respected sex coach training with real credentials behind it.

The end of your studies is the beginning of what comes next. You don’t want to be alone and you don’t have to be.

There are people, like you, all over the world, trained in a variety of modalities and working with different facets of human sexuality.

As a Sex Coach U graduate, you will be welcomed among this elite group of professionals and recognized as a peer.

When you graduate, you’ll not only have received cutting-edge training in sex coaching and become a highly competent professional, you’ll have proven yourself ready to join the ranks in the global field of sexology.

Many prospective students ask if our program meets the requirements for certification through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).​

As of Jan 1, 2021, AASECT CEs are no longer provided through Sex Coach U. AASECT certification is restricted to United States citizens. However, Sex Coach U is a global organization with students and graduates in over 72 countries and counting.

Therefore, we are proud to be recognized as an organizational member of the World Association of Sexual Health (WAS). As an enrolled student or graduate, you become a member of this incredible international organization under our membership umbrella.

You may still apply for AASECT certification, but you’ll need to consult them about their requirements and whether or not your studies at Sex Coach U will qualify. We do not guarantee AASECT certification will be granted as a result of completion of the Core Certified Sex Coach™ training program.

AASECT certification is awarded on a case-by-case basis, according to a candidate’s background and whether they meet the highly-rigorous AASECT criteria. Learn more here.
