Benefits of Certification:

A highly skilled coach can make a great difference in a person’s life. A health coach is a specially trained health care professional such as a nurse, dietitian, fitness professional, kinesiologist or a counselor, who helps individuals understand their health status and engage them in more meaningful dialogs than their providers.

The health coach deals with the whole person and with the individual’s entire lifestyle situation. A health coach understands participants’ motivational basis, their background, barriers, and shortcomings.

A health coach becomes a veritable health partner in whom an individual puts their trust to guide them through difficult situations. A health coach extends a shoulder to lean on. He or she is a sounding board, a source of information, a guide, an adviser and a path maker.
