Every day, health and wellness coaches in Australia and New Zealand significantly and positively impact their communities and the world at large.

rom dedicated individual entrepreneurs working one-on-one with clients to larger collaborative care models, these coaches deserve to be celebrated for their small and large victories, which contribute to a more optimistic view of how we can co-create universal health and wellbeing.

While science, technology, and medicine continue to advance and offer new ways to improve lives, implementing foundational personal lifestyle information and behaviour change activates the code for sustainable personal and organizational growth. Health and wellness coaches are at the forefront of driving behaviour change, empowering individuals and organizations to make lasting improvements to their health and wellbeing.

These Australian and New Zealand Health and Wellness Coaching Awards have been established to recognize and reward excellence in health coaching. These awards celebrate practices, innovations, and, most importantly, the outcomes of coaches' work with clients. By entering these awards, coaches can receive well-deserved recognition and credibility for their hard work and dedication to improving the lives of others.
