our Coach creed
for health freedom
As well-being professionals and wellness practitioners, we are the guardians and nurturers of every individual's autonomy, integrity, self-determination, and the right to informed consent. As workers, we are at a crossroads in medical and health freedom.
As health, wellness, & well-being Coaches, we can never, ever, let up on the sanctity of bodily autonomy and health freedom. Ever. We believe we are divinely and uniquely positioned at the frontlines of health freedom.
We stand for unity. We are a grassroots and nonpartisan community. We adhere to the professional code of ethics outlined in both the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching (NBHWC), as well as those outlined in the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
We stand upon the foundational principles based in Self-Determination Theory emphasizing the 3 basic human needs for well-being: Autonomy, Competence, Connection.
We are committed to uphold our professional code of ethics as a Coach, mentor, teacher, &/or supervisor of Coaches adding further importance to live with integrity embodying the belief that individuals are whole human beings and when empowered to make autonomous values-driven choices this then promotes health and wellness, thus enhancing well-being, and to honor that each person is the expert of their own life.
We sincerely believe individuals have the right to choose what is best for their health and how vital autonomy is to create positive lifestyle changes in support of optimal well-being of mind, body, and spirit.
It would be unethical and incongruent to take actions in our personal life that do not adhere or align to our professional code of ethics.

Some might say that we are,
"the singular force between patient power and medical establishment. Singular, as in everyone should have a Health&Wellness/Well-being Coach, ESPECIALLY NOW when the Coach is the only neutral party on the patient's side. A wellness Coach can be the intermediary between the patient and the clinician who either might be feeling they 'have to do this X' (insert X, ie medical procedure, treatment, etc) for the other."
