WHHC Health Coaching and Nurse Coaching Programs

The World Health and Healing Collaborative (WHHC) trains and certifies Health Coaches. Our programs provide a foundation in integrative health, personal coaching techniques and solutions for managing a professional health coaching practice. Participants learn the importance of engaging in their own personal growth and healing in order to work successfully with others.

The WHHC Health Coach training is unique because it teaches an organic and less mechanistic model of health and disease. Participants learn to value the whole person and how health and wellbeing are created through everyday choices and behaviors. They learn how to create a healing relationship and how to guide and support others in their healing journey.

Our Health Coach classes are especially suitable for nurses who are looking to become empowered in their work places, add a holistic approach to their practice or to become a independent practicing Nurse Coach.


Classes required for certification are preceded by an asterisk.
They may also be taken separately as stand-alone classes.
Class sizes are kept to 8-12 participants.
Faculty is available by phone and email support.
