Like a Pro:
The Wheel of Consent for Professionals

In-person or online

Like a Pro brings the transformative model of the Wheel of Consent to professionals working with topics of consent, boundaries, relational intimacy, body sovereignty, trauma recovery, sexuality, communication, and touch. Originally developed for touch practitioners, the course has, by popular demand, expanded to include non-touch professionals like therapists, coaches, teachers, and workshop leaders.

Like a Pro guides you into a personal somatic experience of The Wheel, and then teaches you how to integrate it into your practice, to make all your sessions safe, effective, and satisfying.

Like A Pro courses are taught by certified faculty from The School of Consent, who have been trained by Dr. Betty Martin.

What folks are saying

Like a Pro was an eye-opener, both professionally and privately. I knew the Wheel of Consent from before, but experiencing it like this and sharing the journey gave a much deeper understanding - and a lot of inspiration. It's the best I have done for myself and my business in a very long time.

Like A Pro is a must for anyone working in social care and wellbeing. This course is firm in its gentleness, nuanced in its simplicity and the teachers are both highly skilled and approachable. I loved it, learned heaps about (my own and others) autonomy, desires and daring to ask for what you want. I look forward to integrating it further in my work with couples!

My life started transforming one day into this training. Personal insights poured in, I started asking more clearly for what I wanted and asking others for more clarity in their requests. As the days went on, I started seeing how every aspect of my life and work could benefit from what I was learning.

When Betty is on the teaching team


When Betty is on the teaching team, two things change:

1) We reserve 30% of spaces for BIPOC folks, at a sliding scale rate. At one month out from class, if there are not enough BIPOC folks to fill that number (7) we will open the remaining spaces to all (in order of the date of their application).

2) Cost is $2200 (instead of $1800 for other teachers). Betty is transitioning to semi-retirement and is teaching less now, so the fees reflect this. Anything you pay over $1800 will go into the scholarship fund.



  • Non-refundable application fee of $50, then:
  • Classes taught by Dr. Betty Martin $2200 
  • Classes taught by other faculty $1800 
  • Classes held in Australia and New Zealand: $1700
  •  Work-study (Help with set up and clean up. You won't miss any class time.) $200 off the cost

RETURNING STUDENTS (already taken Like a Pro):

  • Half cost ($1100 or $900, respectively)

Purchase of Betty's book, The Art of Receiving and Giving: The Wheel of Consent, is required for the online course (and highly recommended for the in-person course). $24 US to be purchased on your own.

Life happens! Cancellation policy here.

All prices are in USD and the application fee of $50 is not refundable.

Scholarships are available for BIPOC folks and those who are part of, or are working with, marginalized communities, or in depressed economies. Make a note on your application. Learn more about scholarship options here
