Who We Are
Wellness Coaching Australia was the first Health and Wellness Coach Training School established in Australia. Founded in 2006 by Fiona Cosgrove, she recognised the need for a new approach to working with clients in the area of health change. Using Coaching as the method of delivery, Fiona set about developing training for this very new and emerging health field for people who shared the same passion for helping others to improve the quality of their lives.
Fast forward to 2021, Wellness Coaching Australia has trained more than 6000 students across, Australia, New Zealand and overseas through our range of accredited qualification courses, workshops and online skill building programs enabling them to take on Health and Wellness Coaching with confidence and coach others to achieve lasting changes in their lifestyle.
