NIWH Graduate Spotlight Questionnaire
Judith Brinn, BS, CHHC, Obesity Certified, WHC, WHE
Q: What drew you to the Whole Health field and the National Institute of Whole Health?
A: “Coming from a Health Coaching background, I found that there was something missing when trying to assist individuals with making a sustainable behavior change.
Q: Did the Whole Health training meet your professional goals?
A: Through my experience with the program at the National Institute of Whole Health, I was able to identify what that missing piece in Health Coaching was.
The courses provided the education needed to be able to supply evidence-based health information to patients, and the case study portion of the program helped facilitate the personal WHY for change in patients.
This was the missing piece. The program taught me how to assist patients in finding their individual “why” they needed, so that the changes can be sustained for a lifetime.”
I have achieved above what I was expecting when I began the program. I have learned how to help an individual make the behavior changes they need to make in order to improve the quality of life they have. I knew I would learn how to guide individuals to do this, however, experiencing it first hand with client case studies made it tangible.
Q: How are you currently applying your training from NIWH?
A: Currently, a certified Health and Wellness coach and Patient Health Educator, as well as Clinical Program Manager and LTCA Program Director for inHealth Lifestyle Therapeutics.
Q: Would you recommend the Whole Health training to others?
I would definitely recommend this program to a friend or colleague, and actually have recommended it! I am very satisfied with my experience and education at NIWH. I feel I have grown personally and professionally because of it.
