About HabitChange Coach Training™

The HabitChange Coach Training™ Program is an International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited training school designed to provide expertise, personal and professional transformation, and essential tools for new and experienced coaches. Our primary focus is to provide coach training and certification for people who want to become professional coaches (life coaching, health coaching, and executive coaching). 

Our coach training program is designed for:



Health Care Organizations

Program and Certification

Mindfulness is the core of our change process.


Our students supported in developing their personal mindfulness practice and encouraged to meditate regularly to increase self-awareness. 

Our philosophy is that the best coaches are always learning and growing in the mind, body, spirit realms.


The curriculum was designed based on our model of Habit Change and developed by keeping on top of the most recent science concerning how to achieve sustained change.

Our HabitChange students come from a variety of backgrounds but share several things in common:

  • A desire to make a difference in people’s quality of life.

  • The capacity to be fully present and listen to an individual.

  • An openness to continue their own self-growth and personal habit change.

HabitChange coach training faculty are selected, trained, and supervised using rigorous standards. ​

We believe that the effectiveness of coaching is a combination of 30% coaching skills and 70% the person coaching.

Our coaches are all college graduates, with many of them having Masters or Doctoral degrees.
