“After suffering from an eating disorder for 16 years I needed something different to get me over the line for full recovery. Finding an eating disorder recovery coach is what did it. Having a person who I could reach out to in the moment, even for the small things, made all the difference. For the first time I felt like someone really “got” me. I had my other team around me and they were fantastic. But it was adding my coach to the team that made all the difference and helped me fully recover."
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.
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.
