For new health coaches who don't feel ready to coach

Finally the process and practice you need to be a skilled health coach who can effortlessly guide clients toward their health & wellness goals

...without being a medical expert, practicing with free clients or feeling like a fraud

Don't let doubts and fears keep you from living your dream of being a skilled, successful and self-assured health coach.


When you started your health coach training I bet you were so excited to formalize what you’d been doing for years sharing your health knowledge and tips with your friends and family. Finally, you could make this a career start getting paid to share your passion for health and wellness with others.

And then you learn that as a coach, you’re not actually the health expert. You're not supposed to tell your clients what to eat, how to be healthier or give advice and recommendations.

If you can’t do this, what the heck do you do? Confusion sets in.

You have a few tools and resources from your course but you’re not sure how to put it all together and actually help your clients get results.

You know you need to start marketing yourself and telling people you’re a health coach, but thinking about posting on social media or sending emails to your contacts, makes you feel like a fraud and an imposter.

I don’t know what I’m doing.

I’m scared I can’t help people.

I’m not ready yet.

So you hold back. You wait. You don’t send those emails. You don’t post on social media. You don’t get clients.

You search for more training. Do more research. Read more books.

You try practicing with friends and family. Get a few non-paying clients to try and gain some experience.

But time goes by and you still don’t feel ready.

Will you let this training go to waste?

Will you give up on your dream of becoming a successful and effective health coach?

I'm here to tell you: There's is hope!

You are not alone. You can be a skilled and confident health coach

What if you could let go of the pressure to be the expert, fix your clients and solve all their health problems?

What if you looked forward to every coaching session because you knew exactly what to do, what to say and how to coach.

What if you got practice, testimonials and confidence without having to give away your time and expertise for free?

What if you couldn’t wait to tell the world you’re a health coach, get those first clients and build a successful coaching biz?

 All of this is absolutely possible! I've mapped out a step-by-step coaching process and structure that shows you finally how to coach your clients with confidence and clarity!

"Michelle's program revolutionized my coaching!"


I just had another brilliant session with a client and I've no doubt it is because I followed your guidance and session plan, used the questions you suggested for each section and implemented the pre-session check-in with the client.

I used to feel nervous and anxious about coaching, and worry about 'filling' the time. Now I genuinely enjoy it and feel like my clients are making so much more tangible progress than they ever were before.

Without a doubt the best investment I have made in my business to date."

~ Bex Brame, Intuitive Nutrition Health Coach

"My confidence has gone through the roof!"

"I’m so happy I enrolled and completed Michelle’s course. My confidence has gone through the roof.

I no longer worry and stress about what I’m going to discuss with a client before a session because what ever the topic is, I know I can handle it. Thank you Michelle."

~ Maria Kazantzis, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach

I've helped close to 1000 health coaches practice their skills and build their confidence, now it's your turn!

When I left the corporate world, I vowed I'd become the best health coach I could be. Since then I’ve spent close to $25,000 on heath coaching trainings and certifications over the last 10 years.

But I always go back to the one wellness coach training I did to get ready for my ICF ACC accreditation that changed the trajectory of my coaching business.

In that course I learned core coaching competencies, submitted coaching recordings for review and feedback, then had 10 personal 1:1 calls with a mentor who evaluated my coaching.

It was the most valuable thing I’d ever done. Why?

Because I got to practice and received personal feedback. And because of this, I gained confidence in my skills and abilities as a health coach.

It was a small financial investment that paid back huge dividends. Here’s what I was able to do because of my skills and confidence:

  • I launched a group health coaching program that I ran online for five years
  • I worked with hundreds of private 1:1 coaching clients
  • I got a coaching gig at the wold’s largest health coaching training program
  • I was invited to host a breakout session at IIN’s Live event that featured Deepak Chopra
  • I’m part of IIN’s Coaching Intensive Practicum faculty
  • I received the credential of NBC-HWC (National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach)
  • I’ve coached over 2000 health coach students and provided feedback for over 1500 coaching demos

That small investment nine years ago is still paying me back today. It’s allowed me to be the best coach I can be, serve my clients, do work that aligns with my values and go to bed at night knowing I made a difference.

Skills and confidence is what I offer you through Health Coaching Essentials.

When you weigh the benefits with the investment in the program and what it will bring to your future as an effective and successful health coach, I believe it’s an easy choice.

So tell me... are you in?

Yes Michelle! I’m ready to get these Health Coaching Essentials

"I feel more equipped to step into my role as coach."

I signed up for Michelle's HCE course over a year after earning my coaching certification and six months after receiving my board certification. I wanted to continue to hone in on my coaching skills and receive feedback in an intimate group setting. Michelle brought her professional expertise to the course, and that, along with her supportive, positive, and warm personality, really made each session truly enjoyable. After completing HCE, I feel more equipped to step into my role as a coach. Michelle is an excellent mentor and guide - 5 stars all the way!

~ Rachel Hagstrom, NBC-HWC

"My clients are getting a much better experience."

"Before taking Health Coaching Essentials, I didn't have a clear structure for my coaching calls, and I often felt all over the place and unsure of what the process should look like. Since taking the course, I now feel confident about how to set up my sessions. I know what to focus on during different parts of the call, and I have a much better grasp on how much time to spend on things like accountability, coaching, and putting together a plan. I honestly feel like my current clients are getting a much better coaching experience now that I've taken this course."

~ Rebecca Pruitt, NBC-HWC

A year after I promised myself I would be the best coach I could be and receiving mentorship, I got a gig at the world's largest health coaching school, IIN.

For eight years I've been coaching students in IIN's health coach training program. I've coached over 2000 students and I hear 95% of them say they're not ready to coach because they don't know enough and aren't confident in their skills.

I felt like this too, and for the first two years of my coaching career, I faked it big time. I was exhausted, confused, inexperienced and felt like I was wasting my clients' time and money.

To overcome my lack of confidence I did more health coach trainings and certifications.

In the end, I cobbled together bits and pieces of these courses into my own coaching structure and process, that I believe are based on best practices in the field.

After watching so many new health coaches struggle, I'm thrilled to finally bring this offering to you. No more trying to figure all of this out on your own like I did.

Inside Health Coaching Essentials, over 9 weeks you'll receive the tools, strategies and processes along with practice to hone your skills, build your competencies and boost your confidence so you can become a successful and effective health coach.

Are you ready take the next step in your dream of having a fulfilling career and making a difference as a health coach?
