NSHC Mission Statement

Mission Statement

The National Society of Health Coaches is dedicated to advancing the use of Evidence-based Health Coaching (EBHC)® in clinical practice.   The Society's program uses the foundation of motivational interviewing (MI) and other strategic interventions within a health coaching context to actively and safely engage patients/clients in health behavior change.  This approach guides patients/clients to better self-manage wellness and chronic health conditions resulting in optimal health outcomes, reduced health risk, and lowered overall health costs.
