This has been so exciting for me! One of the reasons I went into this field was to be able to stay at home with my kids while following my passion, working from home.

I now run my coaching practice from home, working with clients virtually.

During my training I took on paying clients, created a program to support moms and launched my coaching practice called Redesigning Motherhood.

And I am excited to share I just had another $10,000 month!

Through my training at the IAWP, I found the missing answers to aligning my purpose with the rest of my life.

Best of all, finding my purpose has meant being able to create a career I love and live life on my own terms. I don’t have to climb a corporate ladder or do something that doesn’t feel right to me. I get to decide. Today I can proudly say I’ve found my purpose - Wellness, coaching and empowering women.

This is a dream come true. I CANNOT believe just 6 months ago I was feeling so purposeless and down and out and now I'm taking on PAYING clients! I KNOW if I can do this, anyone can.

When I was let go from my corporate job, I had no doubt that this was my opportunity to finally be able to contribute something meaningful to the world. When I found the IAWP, I enrolled within 2 weeks of getting laid off.

I learned that wellness coaching is a real thing that people get paid for and it can be a lucrative career with the proper support, commitment, and business tools.

I also found a new community of like-minded people who want to make a real difference in their corner of the world using the power of wellness and coaching. If I can do it, anyone can do it. You have the power within you.

I think initially I thought this was like any other degree/certification - 12 modules, finish up in a few months, and then see what happens. Man, oh man, was I wrong. I never expected to have a full business up and running by this January. Although things have fallen into place so quickly and, for the first time, so intentionally, I still don’t have it all figured out. I don’t know if I ever truly will. I feel ever-evolving. And while it’s wildly uncomfortable most days, it’s also liberating. And it’s only through jumping in feet first that I’ve learned ANYTHING about what I want, what I need, and what my purpose may be.

I am so grateful for the IAWP making my dreams a bigger reality than I ever believed, and teaching me how to remain healthy and well in the process. Anxious feelings and limiting beliefs continue to be explored every day right now, but just a huge THANK YOU to those that have supported, and a KEEP GOING to those who are looking at the stars – your dreams aren’t as far off as you think.

I was in wealth management for over 10 years. And I loved it...until I didn't anymore. Until there was this feeling inside of me that there was more for me.

I hit a point where I got burned out. And I started getting symptoms in my body. When I came across the IAWP, I got a reset.

I'm so happy the universe led me on this path! I love my life right now, it's amazing!

I had over 14 years of experience in the wellness field yet I had no idea how to market myself, coach my clients, or make a living following my passion.

That all changed when I became a student at the IAWP.

I am very happy to now be able to say I am an IAWP Certified Wellness Coach, my business has taken off.

2020 Update: I had a $14,500 month in June this year. Thanks for guiding me in the right direction!

When I enrolled in the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification program, I had wanted to help others improve their lives for a long time, but hadn’t yet found the right method. Being a student in this program has provided me with so much more than great preparation. It has given me the space and opportunity to learn about myself, explore my dreams, work through long-standing blocks and come away with the tools to begin a new, never-ending adventure of helping others. The IAWP program gave me so many amazing results I’d never expected. Had I been seeking a way of improving my own life, I couldn’t have found a better program. The fact that I was looking for training to help heal others and, in the process, so significantly healed myself feels like an enormous two-for-one. I feel very fortunate to have found the IAWP!

I chose to train as a health coach through the IAWP as I'd researched providers well and thought that the IAWP stood out for their structured and thorough approach: The three pillars of learning in Wellness, Coaching and Business appealed to me from the outset.

Only through the process of completing the course did I realise what an amazing, transformative, cleverly woven course it actually is though.

I'll always be thankful for the support, guidance and growth that I've experienced through the amazing IAWP team, and the peer community which it builds; not to mention the circle of like minded friends that I've made/met in the process.

I was an anxious law school student. I worried about everything and my stomach was in knots all of the time. When I became a law school professor, I constantly had students coming to me who reminded me of myself. I could no longer ignore all of those other issues. A lightbulb went on one day and I knew I wanted to become a Wellness Coach.

The IAWP has exceeded my expectations and more! The quality of the program and the depth of the teaching is what has really impressed me.

There are a lot of programs out there, but there are not a lot of programs where you feel the leaders are truly invested in your success and you're getting the most out of the program...and that's what IAWP does so well.

I could write a novel here on my amazing experience with the IAWP Wellness Certification Program. It was a game changer for me in that I finally found a place where I could channel my passion to help others and be able to make a difference.

The support that I received from my Mentor and my Peer Coach was invaluable. I truly felt that the program was tailored for me, I really loved every module. The tools that have been learned and given to me will be used in all faucets of my life. Thank you IAWP!

Amazing training and support! Coming from a corporate background with zero prior experience within a holistic field, just a new sense of purpose, the will to learn, and a passion to help women like me, I was concerned about how an online programme might work for me.

I needn’t have worried; a comprehensive classroom, too many live support calls to mention, as well as a fantastic, supportive online community.

Even though I have the background as a Nurse, I learned so much about holistic wellness and how to help individuals.

I’m so completely grateful for the IAWP because they have allowed me to transition into a coaching role so that I can help individuals one-on-one understand what’s going on with their mind, their bodies, their soul and spirit and really get them to a complete 360 degree of health and wellness.

I would like to say that I've had an extremely positive experience learning and achieving my certification through the IAWP. I was able to learn at my own pace, when I needed help I got it.

My learning partner was from Brazil, so it was very fun to learn about wellness coaching in another country. A wealth of information is available to those who are looking to enter into this rewarding field through the IAWP. I highly recommend getting your certification through them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Holistic Wellness Coaches are professionals who take an integrative approach to help people learn to make healthy lifestyle changes. They take into account more than just nutrition,  fitness or simple habit changes, but all aspects of a person’s health and life in true holistic fashion.

IAWP Holistic Wellness Coaches are highly trained coaches, providing support and accountability for their clients so they can make lasting lifestyle changes.

Today there are many people calling themselves “Health Coaches”. They have varying educations and backgrounds, some with extensive training, others with no training at all. “Health Coaching” is a general term that does not tell people what area of health you help with or your specific approach. Many Health Coaches focus solely on nutrition, exercise and habit changes.

“Wellness Coach” is a more specific term. It denotes that more than just general health is being considered in the approach. Wellness signfies well-being and lifestyle aspects beyond food and exercise.

When evaluating various health and wellness coaching programs, it is important to understand the difference between becoming a generalist and a specialist. Whether a training program calls their graduates a “health coach” or a “wellness coach,” they often have a particular angle that they work from.

Holistic Wellness Coaching is a specialty term in which professionals will take a holistic approach to wellness, considering all aspects of a person’s well-being as well as the support provided involves holistic remedies, therapies, and a more natural approach to wellness.

While generalist coaches can be useful, you’re guaranteed greater success when you choose a specialist track like Holistic Wellness. You probably know that in the field of medicine a doctor who is a generalist is paid much less than a specialist. Generalists do not have the same level of training and the market allows for specialists to charge higher fees. This is also true for a Holistic Wellness Coaches.

The International Association of Wellness Professionals is recognized world wide and we have students from numerous countries all over the world.

Our Program is CCE accredited by the International Coaching Federation, the international gold standard in training accreditation.

The IAWP is an accredited school by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and approved by the Canadian Health Coach Alliance. Our Wellness Coach Certification program is also approved by the UK Health Coaches Association.

With approval and accreditation from leading organizations across the globe, you can feel confident that our curriculum has met a high standard in terms of the education and support you will receive.

The IAWP is committed to supporting you during your training and for the life of your new career. Our curriculum is built on support and systems which set the foundation for launching a thriving coaching practice. Our certification is unique because it’s built on an experiential learning method where coaches-in-training receive a full immersion in their learning with unlimited support.

For example… You will have have unlimited opportunities to receive personal coaching from our IAWP Master Coaches during our weekly Live Coaching Labs. You can learn from multiple mentors and experience different coaching styles during these group coaching labs. We offer a wide variety of days and times so you will recieve personal support in these highly transformational training sessions.

You will also have unlimited access to our live training calls and workshops each month, where you will receive personal support from a  Master Coach, a guest teacher or our Founder, Suzanne Monroe.

These events are live, interactive workshops held over video conference and are a great way to connect with our faculty and fellow students, with a laser focus on subject matters related to wellness, coaching, business and mindset.

Our mission at the IAWP is to provide the most supportive online education experience in the industry and we take our mission seriously. The way we deliver our training and support is what makes our program unique from any other training in the online education field today.  

Our unique training method is called The Immersive Transformation Training Method™ (ITTM), where you will personally experience and practice everything you learn in your program. This process allows you to master your own wellness, become a highly effective coach, and launch a profitable practice…all during your training.  

Unlike most online education, where you “read, watch and learn”, here at the IAWP you will “read, watch, learn and DO” through our hands-on learning experience. ITTM includes interactive training, hands-on application, application modules, real-world experience, small group coaching labs and ongoing support. 

This full immersion means you always have a place to get direct and personalized support and you not only end up with superior knowledge of coaching, but more importantly, you have the ability to coach.

We also give you all the tools and systems you will need to be confident as new Wellness Coaches, without having to reinvent the wheel or start everything from scratch. You’ll get to build on a foundation that’s guaranteed to help you create success in your new business or career path.

With a large international student population, you will form lasting friendships and peer support relationships with students from around the globe and in your local communities.

We don’t stop offering support after graduation, though.

One of the most impactful parts of an education with the IAWP is that we offer lifetime support for all of our students. Our community is always there to provide advice, feedback, and inspiration, no matter where you are in your Holistic Wellness Coach career journey.

Don’t just take our word for it, check out what our students are saying!

The short answer is Yes! In fact, we are so confident you will get your first client by the time you graduate, that we guarantee your success. If you follow the steps in our program and fail to attract your first client by graduation, we will refund your tuition and you can keep your certification. 

At the IAWP, our program is based on our Immersive Transformation Training Method™. This method ensures you are applying your knowledge during every stage of your training and this includes taking the right steps to attract your ideal clients.

Through our business training, you will follow our Coach Launch system, which is designed to take you step by step through a process that will guide you as you attract and sign up your first 10 clients, or your next 10 clients, again and again. 

When you enroll in our Holistic Wellness Coach Certification program, you will receive Lifetime Access to our training, plus continued education and support for the life of your career. This is very unique in the online education industry and we are unaware of any other organization that provides this level of access and ongoing support. 

This also means that you will be part of a community that is committed to supporting one another. Unlike other training programs where access to other students might be limited to your current class, at the IAWP you will have the opportunity to connect with former students and grads who are always excited to share their experiences and pay it forward. It’s truly a unique community like no other. 

While you do not need continuing education credits to maintain your IAWP Holistic Wellness Coach Certification, our training is recognized and accredited by several organizations, like the International Coach Federation where our program allows you to earn Continuing Education Credits. 

Our primary focus is on giving you the systems and support you need to build a thriving practice, helping others. 

Our business training can be applied to building a practice in your local community or creating an online coaching business.  Some students prefer to work locally, others go straight to online. The choice is yours and will largely depend on your preference. 

Through our Coach Launch Fast Track system,  you will learn how to set up your business and determine which career track best fits for you. You will also learn the ins and out of online marketing, social media, video conferencing and other virtual business tools. You’ll also personally experience virtual coaching and online workshops through your training.

Because launching an online practice requires some additional technical skills, we encourage our students to apply our systems in their local community first and then expand to online as they build proof of concept with their niche, their signature coaching program and our client attraction strategies.
