Clients come to a coach like you looking for help. Sometimes they aren’t yet aware of what they need to move forward.
The art of clarifying a client’s vision is only realized with relational flow; this requires we build connections based on a relationship with our client that allows for information to be openly discussed in a professional manner. This requires trust and rapport.
As coaches, we shine a light on these client communications so there is a deeper understanding of the processes of co-active coaching, including the use of reflections and appreciative inquiry.
When combined in a specific and proven way, all of these skills you will learn come together to allow your client to feel fully understood and appreciated. Our coaching model provides you with more strategic tools to meet the needs of clients with varied needs. By creating multiple paths of communication with our client, we get a better understanding of them. This makes you even more effective at designing actions, and realizing success, for your clients’ health and wellness goals.
Your training shows you how to use a holistic approach that takes into account the client's lifestyle, habits, and individual needs to develop a customized plan unique to each client.
Your mastery of coaching can relate to a variety of areas, including weight management, stress reduction, nutrition, exercise, and overall well-being. Learn effective ways to help your client make sustainable changes that can lead to health outcomes that are sustainable.

What is the difference between a health coach and a wellness coach?
There are a few main differences. It can be separated somewhat by the type of goals our clients have – either direct or indirect goals.
There are three main areas of emphasis for health/wellness coaches, widely accepted to be BEHAVIOR, NUTRITION and PHYSICAL TRAINING. Think of who this description fits – you probably thought of a personal trainer. And that’s a great example of a health coach. Taking this one step further, we could say that personal trainers are not necessarily wellness coaches. Some are, but when they are “doing” wellness coaching, it is much different than how they operate when being a personal trainer. When we say “BEHAVIOR”, we’re referring to “healthy behaviors”.
So health coaches can facilitate these behaviors but they don’t necessarily motivate clients to change. They just provide the application or execution of a plan. This is sometimes at a doctor’s suggestion or for a client who has already decided to take action on a change effort. Wellness coaches focus on one primary area. Behavior change. Your client may not need any of their physical attributes to change, they might have other matters to address as a priority. A client looking for a wellness coach may have several goals to improve health and therefore a more holistic approach is used. This is why we look at the whole client.
For example, wellness coaches might be required to assist with stress management, sleep concerns or issues with interpersonal relationships. A wellness coach can help these clients realize what changes are appropriate without being a formally trained “health coach”. Wellness coaches now use very specific skills to work with clients and these are different than what health coaches deliver.
Yet in reality, we can’t fully separate the two. Most clients using a wellness coach will, in fact, need physical needs addressed to successfully overcome changes that are viewed to be indirect. For example, a client with sleep concerns may need to add more physical activity to their lifestyle. But the wellness coach doesn’t necessarily direct this part of a client’s lifestyle or change effort – unless they are also a personal trainer, too!
Therefore, when looking at a client-centered approach for coaching, it’s most beneficial to use a holistic approach. Combining health and wellness (as with this course) will allow master coaches the chance to address all client concerns directly but always know when to refer to an expert if their clients needs go beyond their skills.

Results we have
Learning life coaching at the Spencer Institute has been a great way for me to increase my business base. I really liked that I could work full time while learning life coaching on my own time schedule. Not only do I now have coaching clients, but I also attract more psychotherapy clients who choose me because I can do coaching in addition to psychotherapy.
The Spencer Institute Coaching programs are informative while being exciting and cutting edge. Their variety of approaches to coaching holistically keeps my business fresh and me coming back for more.
I am a lifelong learner, and firmly believe no matter how much we know, we can always discover more!! My brother told me about Spencer Institute, and I thank him because it really amped up my skills in coaching clients. Being a busy mom, I absolutely loved the distance learning since it fits with my hectic schedule, and I was able to do the courses at my own pace!
I completed the personal fitness chef, fitness nutrition coach and kid’s nutrition specialist programs (some from NESTA) and I am so glad that I did. Most recently, I’ve been giving talks on healthy snacking to children and I am finding that it complements my cooking schedule. It’s a nice complement to the work I do in the kitchen. I just wanted to say thanks!
