See What Our Coaches Are Saying
Learn how to become a successful coach through the support of our personal and intimate training experiences.
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.
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.
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 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!
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 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!
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.
Highly recommend it! When you embark on this journey you will learn a lot of great topics, get amazing support, and maybe even discover new things about yourself!
If you are looking to become a Holistic Wellness Coach, then this is the place to go!
a heart-based practitioner who really wants to "make a difference," I have been shown how to take my work and message to a whole new level of impact and mastery while staying aligned with the values that made me want to join this industry in the first place
This is the best part of my job! IAWP is the best place to achieve your goal when helping people is your purpose in life.
Good quality, good value and very professional
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!
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!
I needn’t have worried; a comprehensive classroom, too many live support calls to mention, as well as a fantastic, supportive online community.
I highly recommend the IAWP!
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 thoroughly enjoyed my training. Highly recommended 🙂
You will receive amazing support in all those areas, as well as in your own personal wellness journey and your business launch.
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.
Thank you so much IAWP!!
I’ve learned how to successfully market my services to clients who now say “yes”, how to create program launches and grow my list, and how to create virtual products that support me to help people all over the world! -Thank you Suzanne and IAWP!
I am proud to say that I was able to open my own wellness coaching business after all that I learned and experienced through the IAWP; I am so thankful to be given the opportunity to turn my passion into my reality!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Holistic Wellness Coaches are professionals who take an integrative approach to health and wellness. They help people learn to make healthy lifestyle changes as well as use natural methods to impact their wellness. They take into account more then just food, fitness or simple habit changes, but all aspects of a person’s health and life in true holistic fashion.
IAWP Holistic Wellness Coaches learn how to look at the whole person, not just their physical health, but their mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. They learn to use a unique, holistic system called Wellness 360 which examines 12 elements of well-being including 36 dimensions of the self.
This system examines all aspects that impact our well-being like our careers, our relationships and even how we relate to nature and the world around us.
Our coaches also learn about the three energetic layers of each element that create our unique blueprints and help people discover their own unique wellness blueprint.
At the IAWP, we believe that true wellness combines the best of modern health practices with age-old healing practices. Our 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.

This process allows you to master your own wellness, become a highly effective coach, and launch a profitable practice…all during your training.

ITTM includes interactive training, hands-on application, application modules, real-world experience, small group coaching labs and ongoing support.

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.
There’s different career paths coaches can take, but here at the IAWP our specialty is helping you to launch your own coaching practice.
By the time most of our coaches find us, they’re ready to create a life that includes more freedom and flexibility. They have a deep desire to do something not only meaningful, but something that is in alignment with their own beliefs and values.
For some, this is their next career and a chance to do what’s in their heart. For others, this is their last career and they’ve finally landed on their life’s work. In both cases, our coaches learn how to design their new career on their own terms.
At the IAWP, we’re super passionate about the entrepreneurial path, because we’re on it with you. We’ve been teaching coaches how to create success in their own practices for over fifteen years based on real experience as coaches and holistic entrepreneurs ourselves. (We will never tell you to do something we haven’t tried and proven ourselves!)
We don’t just provide you an education and leave you to figure out how to really help people and build a coaching business. Instead, we give you the systems you need to actually make it happen. You’ll learn our three proven systems and receive done-for-you coaching programs, marketing tools, complete workshops, client materials and more. The best news, you won’t have to waste time reinventing the wheel and you can start making an impact with holistic wellness coaching right away.
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.
Short answer, yes. The world has gone virtual in the last few years so knowing how to connect with your clients and work with them virtually is essential.
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, some prefer a mix of the two. 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.
