Wellness Coach Training Programs

Discover how you can be supported to reach your goals

At the IAWP, our goal is to provide you with an extensive training in wellness and holistic health, while also preparing you how to become an effective coach and a successful business owner. 

Our training is designed with YOU in mind. Here’s how we have designed our training to fully support you to follow your passion and create a career you love as a Wellness Coach….

Transform Lives with Holistic Wellness

Our unique program trains students to do more than share meal plans or give nutrition advice. We go in-depth in our wellness training so that you learn how to address all areas of a person’s lifestyle and support them with a variety of health conditions and challenges. 

We teach you a unique and powerful holistic wellness process that has transformed thousands of lives. But our training doesn’t stop there.

Unlock Your Clients’ Wellness Potential

We know that no matter how much knowledge and information you have on “how to be well” that people are creatures of habit. And while showing them how to change their habits can be useful, even that is not the whole picture. 

We are a product of all of our past experiences in life which impact our day-to-day outlook and choices. Learning how to work with people’s underlying belief systems and patterns is the key to unlocking their wellness potential. 

It’s not a quick fix, but it’s a powerful method to lasting results and we’ll teach you exactly how to do it using our proven coaching method.

Share Your Gift

Finally, our training is committed to teaching you not only how to help people live a life of wellness and how to do it for a lifetime, but how you can be successful doing it. 

We know that you have a gift to share with others and our goal is to show you how you can do just that. While the business side of things is not why you are becoming a Wellness Coach, we know that it’s essential to reaching the people who need your help. 

That’s why we are passionate about providing you with the business tools and systems that will help you to share the message of wellness and reach as many people as you desire.

Be Supported by an Inspiring Community

Have you been looking for your tribe? The community of people who truly “get you”? Let’s face it, being a holistic health hero can be lonely if you don’t have people in your life who are on the same page with your wellness views and lifestyle goals. 

But it doesn’t have to be a solo-journey. In fact, it can be so much more.

One of the things our students enjoy most about our training is the incredible community of fellow holistic-minded coaches and practitioners. Each day we see how our community supports one another by sharing their experiences, encouragement and know-how. 

Our supportive, interactive holistic community is always there to share their best practices and discuss the challenges and discoveries they’ve found on their own journey.

Let’s just say, Welcome Home!

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.
