Course Description

This course provides a foundation of Health Coaching through skill development in Motivational Interviewing and coaching structure. We will explore basic tenets of health coaching including deep listening, effective and empathic communication, mindfulness, unconditional positive regard, and nonjudgement. In addition, this course will include tools for self-development which is key in a health coaches’ professional journey and development of emotional intelligence. We will learn how each person is intrinsically healthy, whole, and wise and how they are the expert in their journey not the health coach. There are onsite requirements for this course.
