This can be a common concern, and the short answer is yes! The larger field of coaching has many different sub fields (e.g., life, business, fitness, nutrition, etc.) each area has different certifications and training, with some not requiring any at all.
As Health & Wellness Coaches, Psystem’s coaches are all trained and either completed, or in the process of completing, their board certification through the (NBHWC); created in collaboration with the National Board of Medical Examiners.
The NBHWC board certification provides evidence to the expertise, training, education, assessment standards, and mandatory ongoing professional development required and essential to the profession of health and wellness coaching.
As Health & Wellness Coaches we operate within a scope of practice and code of ethics.
