    NTA Health Coaching Foundations

    Client Centered
    Client-Centered Coaching

    Recognizing that the client is the expert in their life, NTA health coaches empower clients to strengthen their belief in themselves and confidence in their ability to make consistent progress toward their unique vision of health and wellness.

    Bio-individuality Icon
    ✅ Client Bio-individuality

    NTA health coaches honor client bio-individuality, recognizing there is no one size fits all approach to health coaching. Listening to the client’s experience and honoring client accessibility, NTA health coaches draw from their health coaching skills and tools to meet the client where they are.

    Relationships of Trust
    ✅ Relationships of Trust

    NTA health coaches hold a safe place for clients to continually feel seen, heard, encouraged, trusted and supported. Honoring the courage of the client to ask for support, NTA health coaches seek understanding first through active listening and active observing, offering compassion and empathy, and trusting the client’s experience.

    ✅ Client Resilience

    NTA health coaches foster client resilience, recognizing client ambivalence and struggles as a normal part of the process while encouraging self-compassion, self-kindness, and a growth mindset in clients.

    Coach Care and Ethics
    ✅ Coach Care & Ethics

    NTA health coaches prioritize coach self-care, supporting their health through nutrition, lifestyle, and mindset. Understanding the roles and responsibility of both coach and client, NTA health coaches adopt a high standard of ethics and set healthy boundaries while supporting clients within scope of practice.

    Assessments - Professional Health and Wellness Coach Program

    Assessments

    Assessments are focused on critical thinking and engagement through practical and written assignments that allow students to assess, build upon, and apply their firsthand knowledge to future clients. They include traditional written assignments, coaching sessions with practice clients, a practical skills assessment, and a final written exam. Additionally, students are given action-oriented assignments that provide opportunities to practice what they’ve learned.

    Why is

    Health Coaching Needed?

    Research reveals that as many as 40% of patients fail to adhere to recommendations and when preventative or treatment plans are complex or require lifestyle changes, the number of patients who don’t follow through can be as high as 70%.
