My story

Don't let your doubts and fears hold you back from launching your practice, getting clients and being the valuable health coach you know you can be.

About Michelle MacLean _ health and wellness coach _

Hey there! I’m Michelle.

I know what to feels like to get to the end of a health coach training program and feel like you're just not ready to start coaching.

"I don't know enough. I'm not smart enough."

"What if the client asks me questions I can't answer?"

"I'll just wait until I get all my marketing in order, then I'll launch."

"Maybe I'll take on some pro bono clients to get some experience."

Despite having all these doubts and fears as a new coach, I jumped in and took on clients. But honestly, I had no clue what I was doing!

My solution was to get more training. I spent thousands more dollars and years of time educating myself so I could finally feel I like I could offered real value to my clients.

There were two turning points for me

The first, was when I finally grasped the coach approach. That our job is not to diagnose, fix, treat or prescribe to a client. This understanding, that the client is naturally resourceful, creative, whole and has the answers inside of them, made all the difference in how I showed up as a coach. 

The second, was when I got to practice my skills over and over again, listen to coaching demos and hear real coaching in action. And when I received personal feedback on my coaching direct from my mentor.

These two milestones shifted everything for me.

I finally had the confidence to put myself out there and show up as a confident coach. 

How am I qualified to help you uplevel your skills?

I'm currently employed by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) as a Coaching Circle Facilitator. For the past seven years I've helped close to 1000 students practice their coaching skills, get clear on a coaching framework and boost their confidence by providing feedback and mentorship.

After completing the Health Coach Training Program with IIN, I went on to become a certified Health & Wellness Coach through Real Balance Global Wellness, got accredited through the International Coach Federation (ICF), sat for the International Association of Health Coaches (IAHC) exam, completed IIN’s Coaching Mastery Courseand sat for the National Board of Health and Wellness Coaches (NBHWC) exam in February 2021.

I’ve also coached hundreds of clients 1:1 and through my online group health coaching programs over the last eight years.

I hear time and time again from health coach students who are about to graduate, that they don’t feel confident enough in their coaching skills to launch their practices and get clients.

It honestly doesn’t have to be this way.

I’m in the process of developing an online program based on the 3C method I developed to help you Clarify the coach approach, build Competence through a refresher of core coaching skills and then practice, practice, practice to build Confidence.

This program is coming in the spring of 2021. Check back soon for details.
