You are not alone.

Chronic illness can be isolating and expensive.

Community is the key to coping with chronic symptoms.

Here there is a sense of belonging and profound relief to hear stories that are similar to yours. Each of our members is on their own path to healing form chronic stress, anxiety, fatigue, pain, and illness. You don’t have to feel like it’s “all in your head” anymore!

Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?

If you’re like many of our members when they first arrive, you’re probably feeling a little beat up by the healthcare system and frustrated that you still haven’t found satisfying answers about your health.

We have years of success empowering women to take back responsibility for their own health. You don’t have to identify with your diagnosis – it’s only a small part of your story. We are here to help you get back to living a full life because the world needs more of what you have to offer – your creativity, intelligence, and passion.

Have you already thrown too much money down the drain?

We understand the feeling of desperation when you’re willing to try anything to feel better! And the sad fact is that there are many so-called experts willing to take your money in return for empty promises.

When you are ready to commit to transforming your health, you shouldn’t have to empty your wallet. We want to empower you to educate yourself with the support of a whole community and team of coaches.

We make chronic wellness accessible + affordable.

Here’s what happens when you become a member:

Benefit from the support of women who understand.

We have a thriving online community of women who are showing up every day to encourage one another. No matter where you are on your healing journey, there is a place for you if you are ready to dig deep, form connections, and bravely try new things! Our members are well-informed women who have spent hours diligently researching their conditions. Yet as one woman stated, “I thought I knew it all when it came to holistic health. How wrong I was!” She was happy to learn that there was more to discover from others on the same path.

Despite having the commonality of chronic health challenges, our focus at the Collective is not on the diagnosis, but on the WHOLE person. We believe that you are so much more than the name of a disease or a medication. We are not dogmatic about specific treatments or practitioners, but about helping you connect with what feels right for YOU.

Each month we host free community calls via Zoom and have a virtual chat forum via Slack that is facilitated by our members and coaches to stay motivated.

Here is what some of our members have to say:

"I’ve gone from feeling hopeless to hopeful."

Before working with a Chronic Wellness Coach, I was in constant pain not even able to get out of bed. I felt like this was going to be my life now (with my future looking bleak). Since going through the coaching program, I’ve been able to take control of my illness and not have it control me– Diane

"I am not alone in this world of chronic illness"

“I benefited from a community of women to connect with. I feel significantly less overwhelmed and that alone is a huge relief for me. The biggest ah-ha moment for me was how important it is that I take care of myself. – Carley

"Talking to a coach about my illness has been empowering."

Before a Chronic Wellness Coach came into my life, I had become extremely isolated. Out of shame, I kept my illness a secret and as it got worse, so did I. I no longer suffer in silence because she has given me the tools to be able to discuss it with my family, friends, and doctors without feeling guilt or shame. – Hattie

Work with coaches to transform your health.

Our team includes Nurse Coaches, Functional Nutrition Therapy Practitioners, and Health Coaches. They are passionate about using their time and energy to help other women learn to overcome symptoms of anxiety, pain, and fatigue.
Learn more about their backgrounds and training here.

Specialties include:

  • Autoimmune disease and protocol
  • Functional nutrition and gut health
  • Chronic Lyme disease and co-infections
  • Toxic mold exposure and detoxification
  • Trauma and abuse recovery
  • Neuroplasticity and brain retraining
  • Mindfulness and self-compassion
  • …and more!

Private coaching provides guidance and accountability.

Becoming a member means access to our directory of experienced coaches. You can browse through to see whose mission, personality, and expertise feels like the best fit. Then, on a free consultation, our Coaching Coordinator can help match you with the coach that is right for you.

There is an additional cost for 1:1 sessions, but this is substantially offset by contributions from donors. Out-of-pocket, a 50-minute session with one of our coaches could cost upwards of $150. Instead, we only charge a fraction of that!

Webinars introduce you to new holistic tools.

Group programs guide you step-by-step for transformation.

We are proud to offer our Foundations group program every 8 weeks. It is a guide for navigating chronic illness from a holistic perspective – body, mind, and spirit.

Still not sure if this is right for you?

Check out the answers to some of our frequently asked questions and concerns.

I can't afford to pay the membership fee.

Everyone’s financial circumstances are different.

We find that when members invest in themselves, they are committed to doing the work (and therefore experience better results). Generous donors help cover operating costs. Some members donate to cover the cost for those with limited incomes.

If this amount is not doable for you, we have a limited number of scholarships offered every year. When you fill out your application, you can request financial assistance here.

I'm not sure coaching is right for me.

Coaching is not the same as therapy.

In fact, it is likely different from anything you’ve tried before. It’s not about asking for (or receiving) advice. In the coaching relationship – YOU are the expert.

Our nurse coaches are trained to help you feel at ease. Gently pushing outside your comfort zone allows you to explore new perspectives. You can unlock your own potential to create better health.

Our recommendation if you are unsure is to give it a try for a month and see how far you can get with the right support and resources.

I don't like to be on video group calls.

You get to choose how you participate.

Many women feel the way you do. It’s normal to be hesitant to share your story with a group of relative strangers. Our coaches are expert facilitators. They are here to guide the conversation in a safe space.

Even our most shy members often report that once they get to know their group, they are eager to participate. For some, they are happy to jump on video, others just want to listen in by audio, and still more prefer the group chats online.

Whatever your preferred method of communication, there is an incredible sense of community that is formed by sharing with others who can relate to your experiences with chronic illness.

 

I'm busy and afraid I'll get behind in the program.

You set the pace in the comfort of your own home.

Our programs are cumulative. This means that we work through each step in a specific order to bring you the best results. There are no due dates and you will have access to the materials for as long as you are a member.

Some concepts may be new for you. They may require more time for you to explore. Others modules may be very familiar. You may be able to breeze right through them.

We try to allow for space and flexibility so that you can choose the pace and rhythm that works best for you. Group sessions are scheduled every two weeks and we recommend attending them regularly. Even if you have yet to complete the assignments, you will still benefit from joining the discussion.

I only want to work with a private coach.

We have a directory of private coaches available.

We are continuing to grow as a non-profit. At this point, we have a limited number of private coaching hours we are able to offer our members. We want to make sure that these hours are allotted to those who are committed to the coaching process.

The best way to decide if our organization (and coaching in general) is the right fit for you is to work through our group program first. The tools and concepts we help you apply are proven to be effective for hundreds of women with chronic illness. Many women find that they make even faster progress when working with the support of a whole group of women.
