What Is A Wellness Coach?
Wellness coaching is about guiding clients to talk about what is most troubling to them about their lifestyle, what they most want to change, what support they have to foster change, and what obstacles or difficulties must be removed or minimized to advance healthier behaviors. It is not the main role of the wellness coach to teach, advise or counsel the client. Instead, wellness coaching focuses on the special issues and concerns unique to the client and incorporates strategies into the context of the client's life.
So You Want To Be A Certified Wellness Coach?
There has never been a better time to be a Wellness Coach. This career path allows professionals to use creative coaching plans and strategies to help clients who want to make changes to the quality of their lives. So many times we are burdened by all of the different problems our clients bring to us and when this happens, it usually means that the coach is not trained to intervene properly. Wellness coaching training has to provide the coach with solutions.
Up until now, Wellness Coaches were not aware of all of the options before them to use in their coaching practice. This course not only provides a state of the art wellness coaching model, its global applications mean that the professional Wellness Coach of today is prepared to make meaningful change in the lives of our clients in any environment. This is what being a Wellness Coach is truly about.

Unique from other forms of coaching, Wellness coaching is a method of guiding others to address their health and to make behavioral changes to improve health – all on their own terms. You will learn to coach clients through this process. You will also learn skills that separate you from coaches who lack a defined coaching model. Like other forms of traditional coaching, wellness coaches utilize goal setting, identification of obstacles, and use of personal support systems. The relationship between the coach and client is an accountability partnership focused on the overall health outcome goals as defined by healthcare practitioners and the client.
