This consortium, the NCCHWC, began in 2009 and is working towards establishing a new framework for health coaching. Though this organization does not provide credentialing or licensing of any type for health and wellness coaching, it does lead a movement towards establishing a commonality in practice.
Their vision is to transform the health care system into an integrative, whole-person approach model and to develop new standards for the health coaching career. This may include standards such as licensing perhaps by state, or even the regulatory requirements for health coaching to be covered through health insurance.
