Read What Coaches and Participants Are Saying About the Circle of Life Health and Wellness Coaching System

“Our social services, health education, nursing, OT and PT staff were trained to be Circle of Life Health Coaches. Since 1998 we utilize the Circle of Life process in our 10-week Medical Symptom Reduction Program, which is a great success. Our biggest contract was with an insurance company who ran a pilot for 2 years found their members who completed this program decreased their utilization of healthcare benefits by 57%.  So other insurance’s followed their decision to cover. We have woven it in to all of our support group activities for patients and use it as a component of our staff wellness program, and is also being used in our community outreach programming." - Dr. Michael Harris, Medical Director, St. Charles Medical Center, Bend, Oregon

"Previous to my The Circle of Life coaching work,  I counseled countless victims of abuse and trauma. The single greatest challenge was helping them identify goals and resources because they were convinced that they had little power to change their lives. I have witnessed wellness group members make monumental changes in their lives that they had previously thought impossible, because of the fail-safe system, small steps, and accountability. I wish I had this twenty years ago!"
- Lois Annich, MFCC, Wellness Coordinator, Lutheran Chaplaincy, Cleveland, Ohio

"The Circle of Life group coaching process is intelligently designed and well-documented. I highly recommend it for new coaches who want to bootstrap a private coaching practice and for experienced coaches who want to add mind/body wellness or group coaching to their repertoire."
-Jen Lindsay, Master Coach, CoCreative Alliance, California

“For 12 years I failed at my attempts to lose 40 lbs and lower my high risk for diabetes, but my concern for my kids motivated me to try one more thing. Our hospital provided Circle of Life Wellness Coaching.  By focusing on my strengths and using a positive holistic approach, I lost 40 lbs in 5 months, I exercise 4x / week and diminished my risk for diabetes by 75%. I now model a healthy lifestyle for my children.” - Kelly Wayco, Mother of 4, New Jersey
