Health Coaches International
We strive to bridge the gaps in community health by building a Health Coach workforce that partners with every sector of the health industry for a more connected and cohesive healthcare system that enables individuals to feel they are a member of their own health team.
This continuing education course focuses on providing health professionals with the knowledge, skills & tools to guide patients/clients towards changes in health & lifestyle behaviours that impact on health, wellbeing and fitness of clients. We have used the word "Telehealth" in the title, as this is a huge growth area in the health sector. However, you can conduct face to face health coaching with your clients and within your consultations/training sessions as well!
The objective of this course is to provide healthcare professionals with the skills, knowledge and tools to champion healthy behaviour change for individuals and groups for achievement of heart health goals. By enriching the self-sufficiency of the healthcare coach workforce, healthcare providers will be able to nurture ongoing partnerships with patients and encourage the co-creation of health management for improved health outcomes.
This course highlights the distinction between the traditional health service / medical care approach and the health coaching approach to lifestyle health management.
Are you a Champion of healthy living?
Health Coaches International has a unique approach to promoting healthy and active lifestyles. We work from the ground up to create cohesive teams of Health Heroes, Champions and Mentors that together, guide clients towards reaching and maintaining their optimal health . Living a long and healthy life is a what we all hope for in life.
Health Heroes are just that - heroes. They are members of the community who have chronic disease risk factors or a diagnosis who have been through a coaching program and have reached meaningful health goals. They 'give back' to others, partnering with people who may need that little extra, safe pair of hands to start their journey to better health.
Health Champions work alongside our Heroes. These are health professionals who are trained Health Coaches who ensure clients know they are not defined by their condition, but as whole people who live in the real world. Health Champions form partnerships with their clients to explore meaningful goals and how best to achieve them.
Health Coach Mentors
Health Mentors are like the team's captain. They are highly qualified health professionals with speciality skills in nutrition or exercise. Mentors support the work of Champions and deliver services that enhance the coaching process. Trained in leadership skills, Mentors ensure the performance of their team impacts positively in the health of their clients.
Our passion is to empower health professionals to lead individuals towards adopting and maintaining active and healthy lives through engagement in physical activity, healthy nourishment and adoption of a mindset that supports good health. Our Health Behaviour Change, Nutrition, Physical Activity and TeleHealth Coaching courses provide a comprehensive range of skills and knowledge to enable professionals to have a positive impact on our community. Our desired outcome is to help reduce chronic disease and obesity rates and effectively build partnerships with individuals and groups to change lifestyle factors that impact on health. 97% of our community knows they need to eat better and move more but less than 30% act on this and only 12% attend gyms. TeleHealth Coaching along with effective nutrition and exercise program delivery by well-trained health professionals can close this health gap, saving and improving lives.
