Director, Coach Trainer, Master Coach
Ayisha is the founder and director of Universal Coach Institute. She is a Certified Coach Trainer (CCT), Life Coach (CLC), Transformational Coach (CTC) and Master Relationship Coach (MRC). She approaches coaching using Solution-Focused, Positive Psychology, Neuroscience, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques.
Ayisha is a native New Yorker and is known for her New York twang and no-nonsense coach training style.
Ayisha started her career at the age of 18 as a self-taught web designer turned online business consultant.
However, her #1 dream was to become a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT). After Ayisha’s 1st semester in college, her family convinced her to go to school for Information Technology because IT was the “wave of the future.” So, she did and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Science, Mathematics, and Technology from the State University of New York (SUNY).
Very shortly after, she regretted it.
She still had dreams of being an MFT, but she couldn’t afford a Masters program.
By this time she was coming out of a marriage filled with domestic violence, transitioning from a domestic violence shelter to her own apartment, with three children, and was trying to make a dollar out of 15 cents.
Life’s pressures, along with not being where she wanted to be in life… Ayisha began having daily panic attacks, went through months of derealization, and was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
Moving forward with her life, Ayisha continued working independently as an Online Business Consultant. She also worked for 5 years as a Job Coach to individuals with developmental disabilities for the United Cerebral Palsy.
In addition, she began working with a life coach to help her figure out her next moves.
It was then, her coach told her, “You do not have to go back to school to help others. You can combine both your passions (business & relationships) by becoming a Coach”. And so she did.
Ayisha received certifications from the Instruction of Natural Healing Sciences (INHS) and International Institute of Coaching Studies (IICS). She continues her education through graduate certification programs in psychology.
Ayisha owns a nonprofit life coaching organization call HAWWAA, Helping Aspiring Women Win and Accelerate, where she provides coaching for women who have gone through traumatic life experiences.
In addition, she provides business coaching to coaches through her company Coach Business Academy where she helps coaches start, grow, and expand their coaching business.
Ayisha has earned the title of “The Coaches Coach”, as she had a hand in developing some of the greatest names in the coaching industry.
She helps coaches to establish themselves as experts, build a profitable and sustainable coaching business, create coaching products, programs, conduct speaking events, and learn how to leverage from multiple streams of income within their business.
Ayisha has built a successful full-time online coaching business and uses her experience to help other coaches do the same.
Coach Trainer, Mentor Coach
Ivy “Revined” Lockett
Ivy “ReVined” Lockett is a Certified Codependency Recovery Coach (CCRC), Life Coach (CLC), Relationship Coach (CRC), and Solution-Focused Coach (CSFC).
She is also a Spoken Word Artist and Motivational Speaker from Jamaica New York.
Ivy’s journey started in a very dark apartment at the innocent age of 16, when she was convinced to leave home and move in with her sociopathic boyfriend. It was then when she was introduced to the ugly face of domestic violence.
After 15 grueling and disappointing years filled with abuse both verbal and physical, she walked away with the 3 children born within that union. She immediately started a committed road to self-healing and self-actualization.
Ivy soon realized that she could transform her self-discovery and victory into words of art. That art was poetry and it wasn’t long before she was winning awards and landing features for spoken word and motivational speeches all over New York.
Ivy realized that her gift of words will give her the strength to counsel and heal women with the same past as herself. Ivy has performed her art of spoken word in some of the unlikeliest of places as domestic violence shelters, New York City Train stations, Massage Shops and Beauty Salons in just about every City in New York, with people willing to hear a woman passionately express the journey of survival.
However, there was something missing and Ivy realized there was a piece to her journey that will not be fulfilled unless she digs deeper and finds out the reasons why she tends to gravitate towards self-sabotaging behavior and unsatisfying relationships.
She partner-shipped with a great therapist and loyal friends and soon found out that she suffered from Codependency. She was determined not to let this revelation define her. She took all the necessary steps to recovery and soon found herself graduated from UCI “University Coach Institute” and excited about helping women with recovering from Codependency.
Today, she stands as a witness to multiple success stories with her clients and her work has cemented her identity as a woman that most women can trust and confide in. A journey in which she describes as a beautiful road from a place in which she once didn’t believe in herself.
