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.
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.
We take you by the hand right out of the gate with our intensive training kickoff…allowing you to immediately start digging deeper, exploring your boundaries, and clearing the blocks, barriers, and biases keeping you from enjoying the richer, fuller life you deserve.
"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."
"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."
"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 am overwhelmed and grateful to the accessibility and generosity of the teachers and support team for this course. Anytime I needed info, clarification or help, I got a quick response. There has been genuine support from the teachers and they have honestly assessed us and given us wonderful constructive feedback. I also appreciate that they are all so genuine in telling us about real experiences they have had in this profession. I appreciate this approach to coaching, staying connected and helping others. I will be more confident in my abilities as a coach. I will market myself knowing that I offer value to my potential clients. I will know that every person I meet and coach is an expert in their own lives."
"I am ecstatic to start my Coaching business and feel equipped and supported to be successful thanks to the course. I can confidently speak to what a mindful health and wellness coach does and the benefits I have personally and professionally witnessed. I am certain that I am pivoting my career role into a market in demand and that will be healthier because of my services."
"I found the facilitators to be extremely supportive. I received great feedback in a way that I could hear that allowed me to grow. I greatly appreciate this experience and all that I've learned."
" I just got my results and I passed my national boards! Thank you so much for your wonderful class! I learned a lot about coaching but I also learned a lot about myself! Thank you so much! I am now applying for jobs and so am confident I will find something this is the right fit for me. "
"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!"
