Are you ready to make a lasting change to improve your health and wellbeing? Consider working with a UVM student preparing to sit for the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching certification exam.
Integrative health and wellness coaches guide clients to establish goals and make lifestyle changes for improving physical fitness, nutrition, mind-body health, sleep, work-life balance or personal development. They do not prescribe exercise or nutrition plans. They use motivational interviewing, visioning and goal-setting strategies to help clients self-determine priorities, action steps and new behaviors.
Some students in the UVM Integrative Health and Wellness Coaching program are undergraduates in majors including exercise science, nutrition, neuroscience and psychology. Continuing and Distance Education students in the program are professionals working in various fields who want to add health and wellness coaching to their services. UVM does not supervise the sessions or participate in the coaching.
Visit the health coach trainees page on the Integrative Practitioner Network to learn more about student coaches, choose one to work with and email them directly to schedule your visit.
