Are you a professional coach?

ICF Webinar - an Introduction to Health Coaching








£ 12.50-40.00

This webinar will introduce what health coaching is by providing the business case for health coaching, defining it, and helping you define what a health coaching niche could look like for you in your coaching practice. We will also look at our own perceptions and biases to health. This webinar is about laying the foundations for any future work in health coaching you choose to do. As such, in this webinar we won’t have the time to focus on how to get clients or lots of detail around ‘how’ you do health coaching. This webinar is suited to coaches who are interested in working in the niche of health coaching and haven’t yet started to or may have worked a little on an ad-hoc basis and wish to learn more.

Key Outcomes:

  • Describe the forms health coaching can take so you can identify which area of health coaching suits your interests, experience, skills and knowledge and further areas for development
  • Demonstrate the importance of defining what we mean by health, illness, wellbeing and wellness to your health coaching practice and clients
  • Demonstrate an awareness and understanding of your own perceptions and biases regarding health and illness
  • Start to demonstrate awareness of societal assumptions and stigmas regarding health and illness
