I would recommend this course to any health care provider, wellness coach, or any type of specialized coach because it really helps you see the client in a healing perspective rather than a solution/fix perspective. Its a very valuable course that offers information resources and insight into healing on a deeper level, and I believe that is what every client and coach is looking for.

“For me, Narrative Health Coaching is a healing technique.  When I add it to my work as an integrative physician, my clients more fully engage their healing.  The results are fantastic. We both benefit from shifting to a narrative process.”

“As an educator, poet and coach for over 40 years, I embrace the power of, and our need for, healing stories and ongoing learning. Narrative Health Coaching invites coach and client into the space in which story, learning and healing meet.”
