CCI Coaching Mission Statement

A Carolyn Costin Institute Eating Disorder Coach assists clients in reaching their treatment goals in real life situations, providing support, appropriate challenges, and serving as both role model and guide.

Coaching is an important aspect of an overall strategy for treating individuals with eating disorders. In essence, coaches provide a crucial aspect of treatment by accompanying clients in everyday situations and providing exposure and response prevention.


CCI is the first to offer a sophisticated, thorough, rigorous certification program.


We train coaches how to best support a client and the client’s treatment team to assist clients in making the necessary day to day behavior changes necessary for recovery.

The CCI Coaching Course

We prepare coaches to work with clients as well as help them set up a coaching business.


The training is online offering the ability to sign up at any time and proceed at your own pace.


The course consists of 12 modules and ends with a final exam and a supervised internship. 


We prepare coaches to work in collaboration with the client’s treatment team to facilitate treatment goals.

CCI also offers a specialty track for those who have recovered from their own eating disorder.


On passing the course, students receive a CCI Eating Disorder Coaching Certificate that can be used to open their own coaching business or work with a coaching organization or treatment team.
