Now More Than Ever

It has never been more important to live a lifestyle that promotes healthy living for a better life. And people are demanding it.

The Pandemic & Employee Relationships

The pandemic forced people to take a hard look at their lives and decide how and what they wanted to prioritize, and health is at the top of their list. According to the Wall Street Journal, Americans are leaving their jobs in record numbers, many citing the lack of care shown by their employers or shifting priorities in their work. This is forcing an evolution in company culture, and many managers are seeking solutions to help create a heartier work/life balance for their employees. As managers and employees alike seek to reprioritize their approach to life and work, wellness coaches become a priceless resource.

How You Can Help Change The World

Our Wellness coaches are trained with these cultural changes in mind. Our accredited coach training program offers a robust curriculum that rests on the foundation of positive psychology research. During this program, you will learn specific exercises destined to target areas of well-being, such as exercise, sleep, and stress. These skills will help your client create sustainable and healthy habits. In addition, CTEDU is Health Board Certified! With our Wellness Life Coaching Program, you can take our Health & Wellness Coaching course to receive your Health Board Certification. This means you’d have the educational requirements to hold both an ICF and an NBHWC (National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching) certification.

History of Health Board Certification

Health and wellness coaching has been around for decades, but as with many other coaching niches, it’s been largely unregulated.

2010

A group of health and wellness coaches, medical doctors, and industry thought leaders envisioned a more robust certification process to bolster wellness coaching credibility in the medical sector.

2012-2016

The National Consortium for Credentialing of Health and Wellness Coaches (NCCHWC) worked to discover what it would mean to define what a certified health and wellness coach would look like.

2016

In 2016, the NCCHWC partnered with the National Board for Medical Examiners (NBME) to develop a board certification examination to make this vision a reality. Now health and wellness coaches are able to become health board certified, which is an incredible leap for the industry and an exciting new endeavor.

Today

The opportunity to expand the definition of wellness, as well as those who can be identified as medical professionals, creates a great opportunity to expand the reach of preventative care. there is a category III CPT code for health and wellness coaching, enabling certain insurance companies to provide reimbursement for coaching sessions. This is great news for many potential coaching clients who don’t have access to coaching due to finances. The Category III Health and Well-Being Coaching Codes include:

  • 0591T Health and Well-Being Coaching face-to-face; individual, initial assessment
  • 0592T individual, follow-up session, at least 30 minutes
  • 0593T group (two or more individuals), at least 30 minutes

In the first five years, the NBHWC has certified over 5,000 coaches. These coaches work in healthcare settings, educational settings, academic settings, and on their own in private practice.
