Health & Wellness Life Coach Training

Course Description 

The Health and Wellness Life Coach Training Program is a 16-session training course that takes a deeper dive into health-related coaching topics, such as diet, stress management, mental health concerns, and disease prevention.  The program is designed for coaches who have completed a CTEDU 1.0 and 2.0 training course and would like to push their health and wellness coaching skills to an advanced level. 

Throughout your training, you will:

  • Learn specific tools for coaching around health and wellness success.
  • Learn how to coach around health and wellness-specific topics such as disease management, chronic illness, physical activity, and addictive behaviors. 
  • Have opportunities to practice these skills and tools through coaching your classmates and being coached by your classmates.
  • Learn tips and tricks for building a successful coaching business. The Build Your Life’s Work Self Study can be found on your Materials Page.

Course Format

The class will meet once a week for two hours, at your designated class time. Each class is broken into three main parts:

  1. Discussion: The first third of class includes an open discussion on the chapter you read to prepare for the course. Your trainer will answer questions and provide additional insight. 
  2. Demonstration. Your trainer will demonstrate how to use the tool or skill being discussed with a volunteer client from class. 
  3. Practice. The last portion of class is reserved for practice time, and you will be broken into pairs to practice the coaching tool or skill with a classmate. This section concludes with a reflection.

Week 2 Sample: The Definition of Health


● Read Chapter 1 in Health and Wellness.


  • In what ways is health more than not being sick?


During this class meeting, we will discuss the models, dimensions, and measuring of health. We will also discuss healthy lifestyle changes. 

Being healthy is more than not being sick, and it involves well-being across every life dimension. From physical to psychological and even social, health and wellness coaching is a holistic approach to the human experience.

Wellness is an evolving process that is largely self-directed. We utilize a Wellness Wheel to demonstrate and emphasize the multiple dimensions that make up one's overall health in this program.


The points to address for today’s one-to-one work are: 

● Use Level 2 Listening and walk the client through their Wellness Wheel.


Week 3 Sample: Managing Stress


● Read Chapter 3 in Health and Wellness

  • Read supplemental information on Sleep


  • How has your Wellness Wheel helped you be more mindful this past week?


This week we will discuss stress, its impact on our health, and how to manage it. In addition, we will cover how sleep and stress overlap, the importance of rest, and how to maintain a healthy sleep routine.


The points to address for today’s one-to-one work are: 

  • Help your client pinpoint either a significant stressor or sleep disturbance. 
  • Guide them in identifying what strategies they currently use to manage stress/sleep
  • Explore how they can make these strategies stronger. Consider using Systems or Limiting Beliefs.
