It’s time to PRACTICE! Gain confidence, get real time feedback, learn how to build better boundaries, take better care of yourself, and inspire your clients to get healthy with less effort from you.
Often health coach certification programs rely on lectures, theory, and research to teach you the specifics of health coaching. But, once you understand the how and why of health coaching, your confidence will soar if you PRACTICE!
During this weekend, you will receive focused practice and helpful feedback in a very small group setting, as this retreat is limited to just 10 participants.
