You must participate in all four time blocks listed above in order for this retreat session to qualify as complete WHC retreat (and to give you 16 contact hours).

To graduate from the Women's Health Coaching Certification program you will need to complete three WHC retreats.

  • Do you lack confidence in your coaching skills? Do you struggle with client compliance?
  • Do you understand what your clients need to do to become healthier, and you’ve clearly explained what to do - but, they still aren’t doing it? (or don’t follow through consistently!)
  • Are you feeling a little burned out by being a health coach? Did you think it would be easier to get people to make healthy changes for their health and happiness?
  • How would you like to spend a weekend focused entirely on becoming a better health coach?
  • Wouldn’t it feel great to finally have confidence in your ability to actually help people make the behavior changes that they need to make to feel better (consistently!)?
  • How much less stressful would working with your clients be, if they actually followed your nutrition, sleep, exercise, and lifestyle recommendations with ease?

Healthy and happy clients is what we all want. But, we can’t follow our clients home and do the cooking, exercising, and meditation for them. We can’t outsource the work. So, we have to have better coaching skills.

During this retreat series the focus will be entirely on making your job as a health coach easier and more successful.

Send your family away, and spend the time from your home computer (in your comfy clothes), practicing your health coaching skills, learning advanced tools, and combining your learning with "staycation" self-care activities in the comfort of your own home (or anywhere!) This will be a community retreat and learning experience that you can experience from anywhere with an internet connection. I will be sending you a self-care schedule and weekend healthy meal plan to support your learning. We will meet as a small community on Zoom, for optimal interaction, peer support and feedback.

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 retreat session, you will receive focused practice and helpful feedback in a very small group setting, as this retreat is limited to just 15 participants.

What you’ll receive during this restorative virtual retreat...

  • 16 hours of teleconference health coach skills training, practice, and feedback.

  • Small group attention as this retreat is limited to 15 students.

  • Connection with a network of skilled, compassionate, and advancing health coaches.

  • Increased confidence in your coaching skills.

  • Marketing strategies for "closing the sale" to enroll prospective clients into your coaching program.

  • Improved client results from your improved skills in client compliance and empowerment.

  • Time to focus on your health coaching skill and practice growth in a relaxed and restorative session with nourishing food and movement recommendations provided for the weekend.

Comprehensive well organized course loaded with tons of information about a subject I knew nothing about. I find myself returning again and again for a deeper understanding as well as for referencing material. This work is launching me to new heights as a PT.

This course has broadened my professional and personal experiences. I appreciate that the instruction and resources are evidence based.
