What is Personal Integrative Health Training?

If you've been wanting a professional-level online training program, but not sure if you want to become a coach, then the Personal Integrative Health Training Program is for you!

This is the same program as our professional certified Integrative Health Coach Training Program, which specializes in mental health and wellness.

The difference in the personal program is that it is directed toward your own healing — so you do not have homework assignments, practice coaching sessions, or live support meetings, and you do not receive the professional coaching designation upon completing the program.

If you decide at any point that you would like to pursue the coaching certification, we can transfer you into the professional program. Read more here.

The material in this program focuses on training the mind to aid in the healing of mental, emotional, and physical illnesses.

Based on the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model of care, it encompasses interwoven evidence-based aspects of mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral techniques, neuroscience, health psychology, positive psychology, energy psychology and behavioral nutrition. Healing aspects of spirituality and the power of perception, insight, awareness, thoughts, and words are taught throughout this course.

The bio-psycho-social-spiritual model of care considers all aspects of a person's life in relation to their wellness.

I  want to emphasize that what is unique about this program is that it focuses on holistic mental health care — how the mind can be trained to aid in the healing of mental, emotional, and physical challenges.

Kindest regards,
Dr. Wendy Nickerson

Dr. Wendy Nickerson smiling

This 10 hour course offers a holistic formula that promotes the body's natural ability to heal.

Developed and taught by Nickerson Institute IHC graduate, Melissa Segreto, who experiencing years of chronic illness only to be told it was all in her head. After exploring traditional therapies without success, Melissa began learning about the body’s incredible capacity to heal —mainly that through rewiring the brain and ultimately shifting our vibration, we can heal ourselves.

Using the 6-step holistic formula she teaches in this program, Melissa was able to heal herself. Just as she did, so can you!

Who should take Integrative Health Training?

The answer to that question is "most everyone" because unless you're already living a life that's well-balanced and healthful in mind, body and spirit, you probably have areas or issues that need some attention. And no matter what challenge you might be facing, one truth that is consistent for us all is that if we want to live our best life, we have to do the work.

Those who we believe will benefit from this program include:

  • Anyone who is open to exploring new ways of healing
  • Someone who is ready to acknowledge their wounds
  • Those who want to understand and work with their mind-body-spirit connection
  • Anyone seeking improved mental health through positive change
  • Those who wish to learn how their mental and emotional state impacts their physical health
  • Anyone ready to raise their consciousness through holistic practices

Who SHOULDN'T take this program? (We don't feel it might be right for everybody such as...)

  • Someone exclusively interested in losing weight
  • Anyone using the program to replace their professional support
  • Anyone who does not want to explore spiritual development
  • Anyone who is not ready to face their need for healing
  • Someone taking the course to intervene in someone else's health
  • Anyone who doesn't learn well in an online setting
