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” or “Life 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. Life Coaching does not usually include examining one’s life from a holistic perspective.

“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 & Holistic Life Coaching are  specialty terms in which professionals will take a holistic approach to wellness and life, considering all aspects of a person’s well-being.  The support provided involves holistic remedies, therapies, and a more natural approach to wellness combined with life coaching from a holistic angle.

While generalist coaches can be useful, you’re guaranteed greater success when you choose a specialist track like Holistic Wellness & Holistic Life Coaching. 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 & Holistic Coaches here at the IAWP.

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

The IAWP is an accredited school by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP) and completion of our Holistic Wellness Coach/Life Coach Certification training allows you to become a board certified Health and Wellness Coach with the AADP. 

Our Holistic Wellness Coach/Life Coach Certification Program is CCE accredited by the International Coaching Federation. Our Certification program is also approved by the Canadian Health Coach Alliance. 

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 based on personal support and proven systems, which together 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 and application.

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 receive 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 a new Holistic Wellness & Holistic Life 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, ongoing learning and inspiration, no matter where you are in your Holistic Wellness Coach or Holistic Life 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. 

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 seventeen 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 and holistic life coaching right away.

When you enroll in our Holistic Wellness Coach & Holistic Life Coach Dual 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/Life Coach Certifications, 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.
