Coaching Certifications

 Your pathway to becoming a confident, heart-centered, nationally recognized coach

Mindful coaching starts with awareness...

Mindful coaches start with self-discovery. They are willing to first identify their own strengths and blind spots in order to powerfully support clients seeking better health, wellness and meaningful change.

Mindful coaches do not impose their ideas and agendas on their clients. Instead, they apply the guiding mindful change coaching techniques – based on our foundational beliefs – to allow their clients the freedom to discover pathways to their hearts’ desires.

Guiding Mindful Change Foundational Beliefs

  • People are naturally whole and resourceful
  • Balance is essential for fulfillment
  • Clients are their own authority for change
  • Change is promoted by mindful guidance, support, encouragement, and partnership

Your Path to NBHWC Certification

The Mindful Health & Wellness Coach Certification is a NBHWC-Approved Training & Education Program made up of two essential courses. The Mindful & Meaningful Coach Certification is a 90-day interactive course where you'll learn and master coaching methods, coaching process, coaching structure and legal/ethical considerations. Along the way, you'll experience mindfulness practices, peer coaching, plenty of coaching practice with real clients, and personal coaching with master trainers. The Health & Wellness Specialty Designation is the complementary self-study course on health and wellness topics needed to fulfill your NBHWC prerequisite course requirements.

"I really enjoyed my Guiding Mindful Change experience. Everything from organization, support, classmates and the work were fantastic. I chose this program because it was short and in my price range but I feel like I got so lucky!! It was a perfect fit for me and I would recommend it highly to anyone interested in Health Coach training."

Jenine Repice

"Thank you for all of the work building and facilitating this course. When I signed up, it was more of a connection point and a check the box to take the test. I realize now that through this experience I have not only become a way more affective and confident coach, but also a better human with some wonderful new friends who have and will likely continue to support me throughout the remainder of this life."

Sue Murphy

"This class was AMAZING! It literally changed my life. Now I am doing many things that I have always wanted to do but for some reason just wouldn't. Spending more time with the family, writing music, losing weight, and changing careers! Wow, all of that in about four months -incredible! Thank you for everything Billie, Betty and the rest of the Guiding Mindful Change gang, for I now have the basis of skills to be a great coach as well. Very grateful for everything that I have learned and I hope to open my practice soon ...I now have the potential to help many individuals and at the same time have the freedom of running my own business."

"I felt 100% supported and encouraged by the facilitators! Their combined expertise and experience was so valuable, and I truly felt that this program was the most perfect fit for me. I would HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone interested in becoming a wellness coach...The online format worked surprisingly well for a group of people all over the country! The pace was appropriate and manageable, and the content was amazing. Our class was a great team of people and everyone was respectful and supportive....I'm so incredibly happy that I found this program! It is truly in-line with how I envisioned wellness coaching to be. After looking at a few other programs, this one just felt like the right fit for me from the very first time I spoke with Billie on the phone to learn more about the program. The 12 weeks went by so quickly and was so packed full of learning, experiential training, and support."

Amanda Burns
Certified Mindful Health and Wellness Coach

"I have been challenged during this class and I have come away a different and better person; I am more mindful, present, and graceful with myself and others. I have learned about being a coach and ways to improve my skills, but, I have learned SO much more about being a better version of myself. It has been a welcome opportunity and an experience I won't soon forget."

Ashley Admire
Certified Mindful Health and Wellness Coach

"When I meet new people my perception has changed because I see people as "whole" now and not needing to be changed, judged or critiqued. We each have our journeys. Creating, maintaining and enforcing boundaries is much more of a priority now. Having boundaries will not only help me but help my clients as well. I felt supported throughout the course. This has been one of the most enjoyable, valuable, supportive learning experiences that I've had to date."

"I absolutely loved getting to work with each of you. It was so helpful hearing your different perspectives and styles of coaching. You were warm and welcoming, but also constructive in your feedback. The small group time and 1:1 mentoring sessions we had made all the difference! We were able to have so many rich discussions and had the time and space to ask all the questions we had. I can't thank you all enough! I went into this program thinking I had a good grasp on coaching but boy did I quickly find that I had much to learn! It was uncomfortable at times, but I know that it led to growth. Thank you so much for all your help!"
