Do your clients struggle to change their behaviour?

Imagine if you could help them make sustainable lifestyle changes

Changing behaviour is hard. Providing information and encouragement is only part of the solution. Often clients know what they should do but struggle with the practicalities of doing it. Obstacles get in the way. They lack support and accountability.


We know your challenges. We've had them too. That's why we are passionate about training you to be a health coach.


Health coaching is a set of skills that helps you support and empower your clients to make sustainable behaviour changes as they take action towards the health goals that they choose for a happier healthier life.

At Accredited Health Coaching Australia we've designed our health coach training programs to be flexible, practical and full of opportunities to develop your skills. You will learn how to facilitate positive change that results in your clients getting the results they desire.

Thanks so much Sharon and Shivaun for the skills shared and opportunity to grow (both personally and professionally) through the Health Coach Mastery Course.  You guys are great teachers and role models of the skills required to support the mental and lifestyle changes that lead to greater health!

Emma, Lifestyle Medicine GP

I was so thrilled to learn new coaching skills that have been helpful with client consultations.  Not only has it increased customer satisfaction with the service, but it has also been fulfilling for me to use these skills to overcome any communication gaps and motivate clients to make positive changes. Thank you Shivaun and Sharon for offering such wonderful courses 

Gia, Dietitian

I really want to thank you both for putting together such a comprehensive and concise program. I have found it extremely valuable. I'm looking forward to seeing the impact it has on my business, though I can tell there has already been an impact on how I deal with people.

 Julie, Dietitian & Diabetes Educator

The Health Coach Specialist gave me the communication skills to help clients move forward towards making health behaviour changes. It bridges the gap between knowing and doing. Shivaun and Sharon have created a very interactive and enjoyable course where we practice regularly to ensure understanding and confidence in our new coaching skills.
