Providers are making the transition from the traditional approach of “Do as I instruct, or prescribe you to do” to one founded in Evidence-based Health Coaching (EBHC)® with Motivational Interviewing (MI). Special conversational skills and best practice clinical interventions are used to actively engage patients/clients in talking about change and to self-discover one’s own ambivalence about it. Over 300 studies have proven MI’s efficacy and effectiveness since the early 80’s. It can set the stage for behavior change in as little as one fifteen-minute encounter.

NSHC’s program teaches you how to create a 50/50 patient-provider partnership in health; recognizing and using the patient’s own expertise about his/her life to drill down to the personal motivation for health behavior change! Additionally, patients/families are guided to better self-manage their health, health risk, and acute or chronic health conditions resulting in optimal wellness, improved health outcomes, lowered health risk and decreased healthcare costs.

The Health Coaching industry is growing rapidly, with the industry expected to hit over $25 billion by 2030.
