About Wellcoaches

In January 2000, Wellcoaches founded the first coaching school for health and wellness professionals, with a vision of creating a new health professional who is expert in facilitating behavior change. Our 20 year journey in designing and testing coaching protocols, training models, and skills assessment, pursuing research and unifying standards, helped enable Current Procedural Terminonlogy (CPT) codes for health and well-being coaching, naming the coach as a healthcare professional, launched in January 2020. Together, let's create a world where everyone welcomes change, enjoys growth, and is good at both.
