It’s a great book and it really helped me get my footing on coaching. It really addresses everything I wanted to know and more. I remember thinking every evening after reading a section that: “Wow, if I can get this down, I’d be a great coach” and I felt challenged and inspired. I still go back to it because some things they just explained so wonderfully.

My experience with Wellcoaches was excellent. From signing up for the training to my Coach Concierge, and every one of the faculty and fellow students. The well-proven coaching process/theory is something I use every day with my coaching clients and it works!

 

If anyone is interested in becoming a health and well-being coach, sign up for the training. You will never regret it; it will change how you view healthcare.

 

Thank you to everyone at Wellcoaches!

Health and Well-being Coaching

Health and well-being coaching (lifestyle medicine) which can now be billed through self-insured employers. Congratulations to the 1,000 Wellcoaches coaches who are NBHWC-certified. Coach Meg’s NBHWC leadership role has put our field on its way toward a history-making milestone: full Category I approval of the CPT codes for health and well-being coaching services in the next year or so. Meetings with payers to set up reimbursement are underway.

We are excited to launch the Wellcoaches Network, a new division of Wellcoaches Corporation alongside our School of Coaching. The Network will connect our wonderful community of great coaches with organizations wanting to bring the highest quality coaches and coaching services in health and well-being to help their leaders, workforce, or patients/clients.

Work and Executive

Well-being Coaching

If your extreme work life demands that you perform like a “corporate athlete”, you can partner with a coach skilled in peak performance to support you in addressing and outgrowing the strains and pressures that never seem to let up. We expanded our coaching and our lifestyle medicine inventory to add a new assessment for all of well-being – mind, body, work, and life, supported by a new well-being inventory for wide use by the Wellcoaches community, including during coach training.
