Do you have a strong desire to help create harmonious and fun workplaces where staff and employees really do respect, understand, and connect with one another?
Are you passionate about the understanding that ‘people do NOT have to suffer in order to earn a living’? Are you tired of seeing people stressed out, ill, and having to take extended stress or sick leave? Are you interested in helping the organization that you work for (or organizations in general) save millions each year in productivity and lost time?
If any of this resonates with YOU, and you would like to use your innate talents and newly founded information, knowledge, and skills to coach others in workplaces and organizations as a profession, then the Certified Corporate Integrative Health Coach Training Program may be for you!
Dr. Wendy Nickerson has developed the 15-week Certified Corporate Integrative Health Coach Training Program as a way to bridge the gap between traditional mental health services and the quality of work-life experiences and environments. Being a Corporate Integrative Health Coach provides you an opportunity to create positive change in the workplace, while at the same time providing staff and employees with the tools, support, knowledge and expertise that is required to tolerate stress and rise above toxic work dynamics. You will be prepared to coach employees on an individual or group basis, while also offering presentations, seminars, and workshops throughout the organization.
This program is accredited with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (International); and with the Canadian Health Coach Alliance (under the governance of the Canadian Association for Integrative Nutrition) allowing you to become a Registered Health Coach (RHC).
The Corporate Integrative Health Coach Training program focuses on training the mind to heal mental, emotional, and physical illnesses. It encompasses interwoven evidence-based aspects of mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral techniques, motivational interviewing, health psychology, positive psychology, interpersonal dynamics, resilience…and much more.
BONUS: After graduation monthly support meetings are held for participants to provide continued knowledge, guidance, and community with other graduates.
Corporate Integrative Health Coaching has been determined as the missing link in healthcare and the newest tool for sustainable change. It bypasses the mental illness stigma and is the most modern method of providing optimal care and education to people working in hospitals, organizations, and communities. Hospitals are able to save millions of dollars each year because of enhanced productivity, decreased medical errors, diminished sick leave, and fewer off on short or long term disabilities. Corporate Integrative Health Coaches teach healthcare professionals and hospital staff effective mindfulness stress management techniques, tools for changing fear-based or sabotaging beliefs, evidence-based nutritional changes to support energy and clarity of thought in constant high-stress environments, natural strategies and coping for reducing anxiety, spiritual practices to stay grounded…and much, much more! The Corporate Integrative Health Coach Training program teaches coaches how to address the whole person – including the mind, emotions, spirit, and body.
Integrative Health Coaching (IHC) is the most necessary career position in all forms of health care. Going beyond eating healthy and exercising, IHC involves much more. This method enables coaches to address stress that depletes the immune system, decrease symptoms of physical pain and illnesses caused by negative thoughts and emotions, and teach mindfulness strategies of relaxation that create positive outcomes before and after surgeries. By including neuroscience in this training, students are able to go a step beyond regular health coaches. IHC helps creates a psychoactive space that triggers learning and neurogenesis (new neurons in the brain). IHC helps the client stay relaxed during the session, allowing them to develop new neuropathways and synapses in the brain, especially as they relate to interpersonal relationships, leading to improved thought, emotional, and behavioral patterns. Research has shown that the coach’s ability to hold the emotional state of another, fosters changes in the brain of the client, ultimately creating ‘a-ha’ moments that change the course of life forever.
The most inclusive, modern, and integrative health coach training program
I have developed and personally teach the 15-week Corporate Integrative Health Coach Training Program via live virtual internet sessions, the phone, email system, an educational online platform, and discussion boards.
In each weekly live virtual meeting session, I will discuss and explain each week’s topics and assignments that will enhance your knowledge base and skill. This program is designed for you to take this training from the convenience of your own home and on your personal time schedule, however the live weekly meetings will be held at the same time each week. You will need to commit to approximately 8-10 hours of weekly study and activity time, including our 90-minute weekly live virtual meeting.
This uniquely designed Corporate Health Coach Training Program differs from others as it focuses on psychological and emotional wellness in addition to nutrition and exercise. It provides more training on holistic health techniques. Resilience and interpersonal skills are also major focal points. Ultimately, when employees are feeling good psychologically, their bodies are less prone to illness and heal much faster if an illness has already occurred. This has a phenomenal effect on the bottom line of any organization. After receiving the training, you will be in a position to safely and confidently coach and mentor others to psychological, emotional, and physical health in an organization, hospital, or small business through the use of the most recent evidence-based coping skills and strategies. Keep in mind that unless you are already trained as a therapist, you will NOT be providing therapy.
