Join us for this ground-breaking program that integrates traditional as well as complementary medical knowledge, with the latest in behavioral change theories and ontological coaching so that you can support your clients to build and sustain health and well-being in their lives. As a health coach, your focus is not to diagnose or treat clients but rather, to walk with them on their wellness journey and help them create sustainable steps towards their vision of health. The Coach Partnership Health Coach Certification Program is an Approved Health and Wellness Coach Training and Education Program by the National Board of Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC). Qualified candidates may then choose to go on to take the examination to become a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (USA).
Our TCP Health Coaching Process Model outlines the steps taken in a health coaching session. At the foundation is a coaching relationship built on trust, supporting the client towards their vision of wellness and co-creating steps towards their desired goal. We examine what goal setting looks like at different stages and how to build the client’s self-confidence through small steps.
We examine the ethical implications of health and wellness coaching and the particular nuances and liabilities that a health coach must be aware of in their practice.
We take a dive into the different models of behavioral change that stem from the field of psychology such as the Transtheoretical Model, Motivational Interviewing, Positive Psychology, Growth Mindset and Appreciative Inquiry. Through understanding these theories you are able to meet the client where they are and support them to find their intrinsic motivation towards their desired change.
It is important for a health coach to have a general knowledge of the foundations of nutrition, exercise, sleep, mental and emotional health and stress management, as well as chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, stroke, arthritis and
metabolic syndrome. Aside from the fundamentals, it is also imperative that the health coach knows the red flags of these
different diseases and when to refer to a health professional.

Certified health coaches are able to hold a safe space for clients, so that they feel able to bring in their health concerns and co-create sustainable steps towards their health and wellness goals.
Additionally, our certified health coaches are trained not only in the distinctions of health and wellness coaching, but also the required ethical standards and the most important behaviour change methodologies.
According to the National Board of Health and Wellness for Coaching, “Health & wellness coaches partner with clients seeking to enhance their well-being through self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values. In the course of their work, health & wellness coaches display an unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, honoring the fact that each client is an expert on their own life while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental”.
We think this definition represents very well the spirit of health coaching and the standards of the health coaching program we offer.
Health Coaching is a client-centred process. A good health coach knows well how to evoke the clients’ internal motivation and leverage their strengths to confidently navigate the journey of building sustainable change.
The main focus of a health coach is to support clients to find their internal motivation, create sustainable actions towards their health and wellness goals and in time, realise their health and wellness vision.
Health coaches focus on behaviours and mindsets that can shift the way that the client sees their world in order for them to create new actions and obtain different results in the area of health and wellness.
Life coaches focus more on broader aspects of life. But of course, health and wellness impact all aspects of life. We believe that health and wellness coaching should be an integral part of all coaching.
Coaches and clients engage in sessions that are personalised to their own vision and goals. They explore their own limiting beliefs, mindsets and excuses that have been getting in the way of achieving higher levels of wellness. By uncovering the client’s intrinsic motivation, they co-create a path to build new habits and practices that will lead them to their desired goals.
A healthy, rested, happy and fulfilled person performs well (in life and professionally). They have better relationships and are able to contribute more to society. This is an aspirational state for most, if not all of us. However, many people are unused to taking proactive care of their health, and wait until physical symptoms and chronic lifestyle-related diseases start to occur.
Despite all the health information available online and all the risks associated with unhealthy lifestyles, many people still struggle to navigate all the obstacles associated with introducing new healthy habits. People want to be well, to feel in control of their lives and to have more energy but often feel lost as to how to go about it.
The Coach Partnership approach to health coaching focuses on a whole-person view of health and wellness and supports clients to build the necessary self-confidence to create sustainable healthy practices. With the advent of COVID-19, the importance of individuals proactively taking responsibility for their own health and wellness journey has never been greater.
