Humber’s Wellness Coaching graduate certificate program prepares you to work in the field of health and wellness coaching. The program is uniquely designed with the working student in mind.

Your courses are scheduled over two 12-week semesters and offer a blend of on-line modules and face-to-face classes that take place on evenings and weekends.

You will gain knowledge and skills in promoting health and wellness and preventing or managing disease. You will also learn to establish effective coaching relationships; support sustainable behaviour change through practices such as motivational interviewing and mindfulness; manage health and wellness programs; and improve quality of life for people with chronic conditions.

You will empower individuals and groups to self-advocate, as they set and achieve healthy behaviour change goals in areas such as stress management, healthy eating, active lifestyle, sleep habits and smoking cessation.
