The science of coaching and health behaviour change has been a key area of research for many years in the fields of psychology, coaching and healthcare. In recent years the practice of coaching people to better health behaviours and outcomes has become recognised as a potential catalyst for reversal of lifestyle related risk factors and optimisation of quality of life and wellbeing.
Our practice has been born out of the need to support people in taking active steps towards change in their health and wellbeing, and is grounded in relationships, communication and connection. This Diploma qualification will equip you to work with clients to help them achieve better health and wellness by creating the successful behaviour change that is required.
The Diploma of Health and Wellness Coaching (10641NAT) is designed to replace the authoritative approach of traditional health care services which often result in little lasting change for the clients and instead can provoke resistance and an unwillingness to move forward.

With this Diploma qualification, students walk away with a unique skillset in the coaching models, tools and processes that will allow them to immediately start working in this unique health field with confidence.
