Beyond traditional mental health and wellness programs... a holistic approach

Creating a company culture with employee psychological and emotional wellness at its core has never been more important. But perhaps your current initiatives are not enough. Perhaps there is more that you can do.

An Integrative Health Coaching Training Program is a logical extension of your other initiatives and adds a holistic approach to mental health. It can facilitate sustainable thought and behavioral patterns that lead to more optimal functioning of the human mind, body, and spirit. We believe that a holistic mental health approach provides individuals with more opportunities for living their best life.

Published reports show that integrative health coaching can contribute to improvement in:

Dr. Wendy Nickerson smiling

The principle instructor of this program is Dr. Wendy Nickerson, founder of the Nickerson Institute for Integrative Health Training, Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Canada  and the United States, university instructor to graduate students in Counselling Education and Behavioral Health Sciences, and author of “Wild Women Never Get The Blues”.

I believe that mental health is paramount to overall wellness and have seen how a holistic approach goes beyond conventional therapies and programs, providing deeper, sustainable, and more comprehensive care to individuals.

Now, organizations are beginning to see how stress, anxiety and the poor mental health of their employees affects the organization as a whole, and are looking for innovative measures to make effective and enduring change. There is a growing awareness that existing corporate wellness initiatives are not enough — especially in light of how the pandemic changed how we work together. More than ever before, empathy and compassion in the workplace is not a 'nice to have', it is a necessity.

This Corporate Integrative Health Coach Training Program reflects the growing global need and desire to shift to a healthy cultural paradigm. The content draws on the principles of positive psychology, neuroscience, energetic support, and the practices of motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral strategies, and mindfulness techniques.  By using these practices to raise human thought and consciousness, we can — as individuals and as a collective organization — rise above the "norm" and create an environment where wellness is the foundational goal that generates growth, productivity and prosperity.
