An Introduction to Narrative Health Coaching for Homeopaths: Engaging the Client's Full Healing Potential
Joel Kreisberg, DC, CCH, PCC
In 2011, homeopath Dr. Joel Kreisberg created a new model of care delivery in order to provide better client outcomes: Narrative Health Coaching. It shifts the relationship from an expert model – in which the doctor has all the answers – to a client-centered one, where the client defines his or her own health goals. The former seeks a cure for illness; the latter supports learning, growth, and healing. Successfully integrating coaching into his own homeopathic practice, Dr. Kreisberg found that his clinical outcomes improved, clients were increasingly motivated and came in more frequently, and both clients and homeopath were more engaged in the process.
In this compelling session Dr. Kreisberg will lay the foundation for his upcoming six-part course.
Is it challenging to get your homeopathy clients to come in for regular sessions? Do they often fail to follow through on suggestions about diet and lifestyle changes? Are there times you wish they would be more motivated to take charge of their health? If the answer is 'yes' to any or all of these questions, consider Narrative Health Coaching as a natural adjunct therapy to enhance client outcomes.
Incorporating awareness of “story,” Narrative Health Coaching engages the whole person – body, mind, heart, soul, and spirit – allowing for growth and healing of both the client and the coach, increasing awareness, and motivating change.
Narrative Health Coaching provides therapeutic principles and skills that allow homeopaths to engage more deeply with clients on their healing journey, increasing both overall satisfaction with the treatment program and overall outcomes of therapy.
With Narrative Health Coaching you will learn to:
- Enhance your healing presence through self-awareness
- Establish and nurture trust through enlightened presence and active listening
- Develop and carry out a coaching plan that identifies a healing topic tailored for each client
- Sit more comfortably with your client’s healing narrative
- Recognize and work with the challenges and impact of resistance
- Develop a healing program that sustains clients through the entire healing process
We are excited to have Joel Kreisberg and Reggie Marra, two caring and experienced Professional Certified Coaches, teach you how to embrace the key principles of Narrative Health Coaching: Stories Matter, Relationships Engage, Learning Transforms, and Growth Heals. Learn how to work directly with a client's story, build awareness, facilitate learning, and establish trust and intimacy. Increase your success rates – as well as your satisfaction – by adding these diverse new healing skills into your clinical toolbox!
Participants in the 'Narrative Health Coaching' course with Joel Kreisberg may earn 12 ACHENA CPD credits!

Praise for Narrative Health Coaching
In my practice, clients usually share their life stories, which is often a very effective way to start a healing process. However, after the initial sharing, it can be challenging to shift the client to focused learning and healing. This class was very effective in helping me learn how to help the client take this next step in their healing process.
— Tanya Renner, CCH, RS Hom (NA)
I’ve recently experienced an opportunity to apply the skills I have gained in the Teleosis Narrative Health Coaching (NHC) program. I truly could not be more pleased with both my personal experience and the outcome. I found the difference when applying NHC methods to be astounding.
Within minutes of opening up my first conversation, I had a sudden awareness that this indeed was a shared journey – the burden of responsibility was no longer mine alone. I physically felt the weight of that drop. We would be co-collaborators in the weeks ahead designing a healing topic that would be supported with learning objectives and specific tasks in order for my new client to gain new skills. These new skills would serve her well beyond the weeks we spent together. While I always believed this was a joint venture between client and practitioner, it wasn’t until I tried on this new role of coach that truly felt there was a team effort. In retrospect, I think it was not only my thinking that shifted but also the perspective of the client. Instead of approaching me with something broken that she needed repaired, my client came into our meeting with a desire to learn skills that would help her accomplish her own goal.
