What is a Wellness Coach?

Listening to Music

A wellness coach is a supportive guide who helps clients determine a goal and then work towards it; whether that is to lose weight, improve energy, better manage stress, or achieve a specific professional goal. In addition to holding clients accountable, you will also help clients achieve their health and wellness goals by fostering a positive mind-set around health and well-being.  


Wellness coaches empower and motivate their clients to become their own experts. Wellness coaches have the tools and knowledge to share with their clients about holistic health and how to enact sustainable behavior change,

Become a Wellness Coach

True wellness is about optimal well being with all six dimensions of health and wellness in balance; intellectual, physical, emotional, social, environmental and spiritual. Wellness Coaches work with the knowledge in these six pillars to help individuals become happier by understanding, balancing and reaching the potential in all of these areas.

As a Wellness coach you will help your clients find success and satisfaction by living a healthy balanced lifestyle by helping them develop their overall strengths and abilities, understand and outline goals and pathways for their lives and then make better choices in order to achieve these goals.

As a wellness coach you may help clients on: 

- guidance on moving forward with a career choice

- learning how to take advantage of their strengths and talents

- help your client make a major life decision

- help a client to achieve a work-life balance

- decrease their amount of stress

increase activity and movement to increase health

- achieve goals and milestones

What will I Learn

Wellness coaches help their clients increase motivation by using clinically tested tools and techniques to achieve their physical, emotional and health goals.

Our program is built around the six pillars of Health and Wellness with the Diploma of Business (BSB50120)* at its core. The primary text and learning resources are produced by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and the course adopts the ICF Coaching Core Competency Model to ensure best practice coaching skills. The Move Academy Wellness Coach program also incorporates the  Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance (HLT43015) qualification.

Within the program you will learn the tools, techniques and principles which will allow you to become an effective wellness coach. This includes behaviour change, emotional intelligence, concepts of health and wellbeing as well as how to develop wellbeing programs. The foundations of communication, how to recognise and confirm healthy body systems as well as healthy nutrition guidelines, movement and physical activity, sleep, emotional wellbeing and stress management will also be covered within the program. We then give you the skills and knowledge to set up and manage a successful coaching business.
