Welcome to Wellcoaches!

We lead the way.

(Click left image for Wellcoaches highlights)

We deliver health and wellness coach training & education programs to support:
Corporate wellness professionals
Patient-centered healthcare
Professionals who want to build a private coaching practice or enhance job opportunities
Universities who want to add coaching education and skills to degree programs

For experienced health & wellness professionals who want to become Certified Health & Wellness Coaches: Our 18-week Core Health and Wellness Coach training program, completed by 8,000 professionals since 2002. This program gave birth to a new professional - the health & wellness coach, expert in helping people rise above the barriers to good health and thrive by making lasting changes in mindset and behavior. 


For professionals who want to become (non-Health) Certified Coaches:  Wellcoaches also offers an 18-week Coach training program for non-health professionals to combine with their domain expertise in areas such as career, marketing, business, financial, or life stage coaching (retirement, etc.). Delivering the same leading-edge, evidence based coaching competencies as in our health and wellness coach training program and enabling coaches to coach clients on non-health life domains.

Note: Wellcoaches continues its high standard for Certified Health and Wellness Coaches by requiring health sciences prerequisites. And, we are responding to strong interest in adapting our coach training programs for application outside the health domain. 

Both programs are taught by our world-class coach training faculty and include eighteen 90-minute, live weekly teleclasses based on our coaching textbook, The Coaching Psychology Manual. Each lesson includes skills practice and enriching discussion with coaching masters. Classes begin January, March, May, July, September, and November.
