Level 3 builds on the knowledge gained in Level 1 and 2, providing advanced practical coach training skills and further exploring of the theoretical elements of coaching, focusing on increasing competency and confidence to practice as a professional Health and Wellness Coach.The major difference between a Health and Wellness Coach and other health professionals is the facilitative, as opposed to prescriptive approach and the handing over of responsibility to the client.  There are many aspects that are derived from other helping professions such as the unconditional positive regard that the coach will always display and the honouring of the client’s autonomy and unique values.

The next step in the journey is an intensive and comprehensive study of each element introduced in earlier levels of learning.  Level 3 brings coaching to life and builds on all your learning so far.  You will gain a deeper understanding of the many theories underpinning our work and given many opportunities to coach (and be coached).

Graduates from Level 3 will have demonstrated the ability to coach a client using the model taught and have a more confident understanding of how to handle what is brought to the session.  They will be ready to begin a lifelong pattern of learning, understanding that each and every coach continues to grow and develop as their career progresses.

Since completing my level 3 accreditation with Wellness Coaching Australia I have commenced a business which focusses on wellness coaching specifically for men called Elevate Men's Potential. The coaching structure set out through WCA provides a terrific pathway to follow and allows clients to develop self awareness early on, providing them with the ability to develop the skills required to work week by week with their coach to achieve a vision of what it is they want to change about themselves and achieve. I have no hesitation in recommending Fiona and her team if you are considering to enter the wonderful world of helping others to become their best self. We all deserve to move forward and improve our lives. WCA is a great platform to develop the skills to provide a valueable service to our fast paced, ever changing world.

The skills I have learned throughout these studies have proven invaluable to me and to the growth of MBS Wellness over the course of this year. Since completing level 3 studies I have started a weekly podcast “The Ex Corporate Hippie’s Guide to Wellness”, (currently listed on the “new and noteworthy” on iTunes). I’ve been featured as the only Australian author in a book called “You Well Being Sorted” which was released in July of this year, and I am close to finishing the manuscript on my own book, which will be released in the first quarter of 2015. I have been featured in the media as an expert wellness commentator both in Australia as well as overseas, and in addition to all of this I have been a key note speaker at several events throughout the year and have established a executive wellness coaching practice in Brisbane. I have no doubt that the skills I picked up during my training with Wellness Coaching Australia have greatly assisted in creating the solid foundations to my business and would have no hesitation in recommending the program to anyone interested in a career within the wellness industry.

With a background in event and project management, I’ve always had an interest in planning and helping to “make things happen”. I’ve also had a long term interest in health and wellbeing and was eager to find a way to combine my passion with my professional skills. I completed my level 3 wellness coach training in August this year and have just launched my coaching business. My plan initially is to run my business alongside my other job with the intention of eventually operating the business fulltime as demand grows. At first, the thought of launching my own business was extremely confronting for me. However, it’s actually turned out to be a wonderful experience and has helped me discover skills I never knew I had (eg, I built my own website and have been asked by others to build theirs!) and which I’ll be able to incorporate into my business. Completing my wellness coaching qualification is one of the best things I have ever done. If you’d like to ask me any questions about the training or visit my site, my contact details are below.

I thought a lot about completing an accredited Health and Wellness Coaching program and after my research, Wellness Coaching Australia (WCA) stood out for me. My expectations were exceeded. I started with the intention of completing level one and two but found the courses so beneficial to my work I decided to continue with Level 3. WCA is professional from the administration team through to the coaches that taught throughout the program. Each coach brought a different style and skill set to enrich the experience. I loved the variety of coaches throughout the program. A valuable part of the program was the depth of experience in the coaches. Our course concierge was fantastic and tied theory and practice together, provided support, coaching and encouragement. I received constructive feedback throughout the course enabling me to grow as a beginning coach. My new coaching skills have proved invaluable to me both as a practitioner and as a Director of Allied Health focusing on developing patient-centred using coaching principles in an Allied Health team.
