"I appreciate as well that it is not only nutrition based as a lot of the holistic health coaching certifications were."
I also liked the idea that I could practice coaching clients in the collective, this is not something I was seeing in other programs!
"I really appreciate the way Katherine runs it."
I think overall I just can tell Katherine genuinely wants us to experience success in a way that meets everyone’s individual needs and having no expectations is really helpful in lessening stress and letting me figure things out along the way.
"I am starting to feel like this is something I can do without needing 1000 certifications and medical background to help others!"
Since 2020, there has been a growing demand for holistic, trauma-mindful coaches.
The virtual classroom is inclusive and video participation in optional if your energy is limited.
Trauma-mindful does not mean you will treat clients in recovery.
You are aware of the traumatic impact of chronic illness (and other life experiences). You are able to make referrals when necessary.
Most importantly, you don’t see your clients as “broken,” but as whole and capable of great things despite physical limitations!
You are qualified to introduce them to alternative and complementary modalities to explore as treatment options with a qualified practitioner.
Cutting-edge science and the latest in neuropsychology to help women thrive.

Her body was crying out, too, with symptoms of pelvic pain, fatigue, and anxiety, which grew harder to ignore.
She says, “Like most things, I connected with Katherine and the Chronic Wellness Collective at the perfect time.”
“It was in witnessing Katherine and the other coaches on the Board that I started to get a sense of, ‘oh I could do this differently.’
“I could have a business where my own well-being was as much of a priority as that of my clients.”
“It is often in like-minded company that we get the permission we need to take big leaps.
“The Chronic Wellness Collective was that for me.”
“Their support helped me turn towards what I really wanted– to build my own practice and to continue to have the faith to keep building it– knowing there are other women out there walking similar paths.
“I am forever grateful.”
Imagine your life as a Coach 6 months from now.
They are grateful and appreciative of your guidance and support. You are ready to start earning income working from home in a career that you love!
Other programs cost 2-3x as much and they don’t provide you with clients!
We guide and support you every step of the way. Not only do we want you to have a real career as a Coach – we selfishly want to have you work with us at the Collective!
If you complete training and meet the required competency levels, you will be able to be listed in our Coach Directory and start taking paid clients right after graduation.
Our comfortably-paced curriculum allows you to learn and grow while still caring for other family and work responsibilities.
You could pay upwards of $10,000 for tuition and expect a jam-packed study schedule for the better part of a year. Or you could break it down into bite-sized chunks (and a reasonable monthly payment) to avoid overwhelm. This allows you to get the rest you need to maintain your own health.
Now is the time to enroll in the Chronic Wellness Coaching Academy before tuition increases in Spring 2023.
