"Health coaching communication skills are the “secret sauce” for patient compliance and empowerment." - Dr. Jessica Drummond
When it comes to coaching communication, many healthcare practitioners and health coaches feel unprepared.

"Jessica Drummond is one of the most amazing women and mentors I’ve had the pleasure to meet (virtually).

And the program literally changed my life, transforming my own health and the health of my complex clients beyond bounds.I have found immense value in all of the courses, both for myself personally and professionally, and for my clients. Going through the WHC program has also inspired me to start up my own online education and coaching business – The Pelvic Expert. I’m so grateful to have the support of amazing therapists, coaches and healers like Jessica. Thank you Jessica for being an amazing inspiration!"

"I’m seeing phenomenal results with my clients”
“The WHC Certification Program is rocking my world. I have done a lot of training programs and this is hands down the best one I’ve ever participated in. In this relatively new field of work in which the research and facts are sometimes scarce, having access to this course that is so well-researched is so encouraging. Jessica has covered every aspect of women’s hormonal health and backed it all up with thorough evidence-based research. It’s all very compelling! Each session has been interactive and engaging. Jessica is a masterful teacher and her passion for this work really shines through every step of the way. She has left no stone unturned and covers each topic comprehensively. There is so much material that I find myself going back through each of the webinars at least 2 or 3 times. Additionally, I’ve implemented a lot of what I’ve learned into my own practice and I’m seeing phenomenal results with my clients."

"I wish I had started with this program first."
“I cannot say enough good things about IWHI’s Women’s Health and Nutrition Coach program. It is thorough, informative, evidence-based, practical, and changes the paradigm of caring for women with pelvic pain. As a board certified obstetrician and gynecologist who has been dissatisfied with the standard of care for pelvic pain and spent thousands of dollars attending numerous conferences on pelvic pain, pain processing, holistic and integrative medicine, I wish I had started with this program first. I would have saved money and been very well prepared to treat this patient population in a more evidence-based way. For any medical doctors who may be hesitant, delay no longer; you will be more than satisfied! This course will change your practice and the way you view not only your pelvic pain patients but all of your patients.”
