How Does The Program Work?
Part 1 - Health Coaching
Your studies will commence with 3 core health coaching competency units, led by Wellness Coaching Australia’s team of senior coach trainers. These evidence-based, practical units are backed by the latest research and international trends in the health coaching field, arming you with everything you need to develop and harness your coaching skills and work with clients with absolute confidence.
Over a five-to-six-month period, you will learn all the theory and fundamental models of coaching foundation and advanced health coaching skills, the practical application of coaching a client within a structured coaching model, as well as the development and implementation of coaching programs - everything you need to conduct a coaching program with individuals and groups, with an advanced coaching skillset to draw from.
As coaching is a hands-on, practical skill, your study includes more than 40 hours of live training delivered by the WCA team, and includes one on one mentoring and client case study feedback sessions so you feel confident to successfully coach in the real world.
