The Certificate in Health & Wellness Coaching prepares you with the well-rounded expertise needed to become a health and wellness coach. You’ll examine key health and wellness concepts such as wellness-oriented coaching, the psychology of behavior change in a health context, and the fundamentals of chronic disease. You’ll also engage in mindfulness activities, practice individual and group coaching, incorporate self-reflection into your practice, and apply your skills through a supervised practicum.

In the classroom, you’ll learn through a holistic approach to health coaching based on Georgetown University's core value of cura personalis, or “care for the whole person,” which calls on health practitioners to address the mind, body, and spirit of their clients.
