Have you ever struggled to help people create change in their life? Meaning, you know what your client or family member needs to be doing and how much it will improve their lives, yet they don’t or won’t seem to be following through on their plan. We’ve all been there and it’s frustrating to see all this potential go to waste. This is exactly why we’ve created Mastery.
The IHP Mastery Certification is based on 20 years of clinical practice experience and over 250,000 client appointments of data where we’ve encountered every excuse, objection, obstacle, and program modification. What we do now in Mastery is go deep into the psychology of fostering change in those that need it the most (sometimes even with ourself).
Remember, each client is an individual and needs to be spoken to and coached in a language they relate to and can understand.

I am a recent IHP Mastery graduate! If you are looking for a program that will launch you to the next level in your practice then IHP Mastery is for you!
This coursework is crucial for any IHP who wants to truly offer an integrative practice to their clients. I was really struggling with launching forward after I completed IHP Level 2 because of COVID, and IHP Mastery helped me re-focus and dive back in.
This course allowed me to build my confidence with the support from other IHP students in the community while providing me with rich applicable content I can use every day in my practice.
I am already coaching clients, and IHP Mastery gave me the tools to help me to transition into a health coach who knows their worth!
Dive deep into the psychology of fostering change in others.
Empower your clients to “take control of their own health” and progress forward.
Acquire crucial skills to create a health coaching practice and results-oriented programs.
Not only will your clients get better results with this coaching model, but you will be personally far less stressed in the process. That means you’ll enjoy the work you’re so passionate about for many more years to come! You will learn all this in Mastery, plus much more on how to help others heal more effectively.
In this new IHP Mastery Certification, we wanted to help you in a more hands-on way. This is exactly why we created 11 specific modules that allow you 2 weeks each to complete with an IHP Mastery Community Workshop at the end of those 2 weeks. (The entire course will run for approximately 6 months although you will have lifetime access to the material.)
These workshops will be delivered virtually on any smart device and will allow you and the group to directly interact with your instructor (Dr. Cabral, Dr. Hasenyager Crimmins, & IHP Faculty). This means you get to ask questions in real-time, as well as work through specific case studies.
Essentially, you will have 2 weeks to go through each 2-3 hour video module and then twice a month we will gather together to talk about the specific module, case study questions, and complete workshop materials together. This allows for a lot more IHP community building and a fun and exciting way to absorb the new Mastery material!
*Live Workshops will generally take place on Biweekly Tuesdays or Thursdays from 3:30-5/5:30pm ET
We will also have a new private Facebook Mastery Group for daily Q&A, previous recordings of the live workshops, favorite book or resource sharing, and networking with your IHP colleagues. In this private group you will also be encouraged to pair up or create small groups with your fellow IHP Mastery Members. This allows for deeper understanding of the material, role playing, and creating accountability partners.
To our knowledge, nothing like IHP Mastery has ever been created in the health coaching industry and when you combine it with the IHP Level 1 or Level 2 certification you truly are at the top of the industry and prepared for any client or case that comes your way.
Courtney Lancaster, IHP2M January 2021 Graduate
IHP Mastery exceeded my expectations, it provided me with additional soft skills and focused on the art of coaching. I feel more prepared than I ever did before to converse with others about their health. Often with entrepreneurship, we figure it all out as we go and Mastery short cuts several key elements to business building with contacts and words of wisdom from experience. I would highly recommend IHP Mastery to anyone who is serious about building their coaching practice.
You must be IHP Level 1 certified by the time the course begins. This allows everyone in the group to have the same foundation to work off of.
Mastery is not open to the general public and only 50 IHP Level 1 or Level 2 certified members are accepted. This enables us to have more hands on time with each student during the bi-weekly workshops.

Now it’s time to introduce you to the IHP Mastery Modules and show you how you will be able to take your ability to help others to the next level!
Welcome to the next chapter in helping people heal. In IHP Mastery you will master the psychology behind permanent behavior change and empowering those you serve in your community in ways neither of you thought possible. It’s going to be a lot of fun and in this first module we will share with you what to expect and how everything will be laid out for you.
How do you lay the groundwork for an effective coaching relationship with your client? How do you set the stage right from the beginning as to how the coaching relationship will work? We discuss what you can do in your coaching interactions to facilitate a mutual understanding between you and your client about the optimal coaching process and coaching relationship.
Have you ever wondered what you should or shouldn’t say during a consultation? Do you worry about over stepping boundaries and offending a client, or worse, working outside of your scope of practice? In this module we will share with you what you absolutely must do in your standards of care and also what to watch out for from an ethics standpoint.
How do you guide your client from the initial handshake to a trusting partnership with you? As a successful health coach, it’s crucial to create a safe, supportive environment that leads to sustained mutual respect and trust between you and your client. Not only does this foster long-term professional relationships, but can lead to them being an evangelist for your practice.
One of our favorite ways of creating change before we’ve even presented someone with a plan is to get them excited about what is possible for the new future they are going to be actively creating. This begins with the initial consultation and is implemented in the way you use motivational interviewing style questions to empower your client to see the change they want to create.
All change happens in relationship, and relationships depend upon great communication. How can you deeply listen to your client and communicate with them in a way that shows you accurately understand their meaning, care about their desires and support their goals? In this module you will learn the art of active listening as well as how to effectively communicate in a way your client can relate to.
All habits are created in the same way, so why don’t people have more positive habits? And, why can it be so difficult for people to foster new healthier habits even when people realize that it is the right thing to do to get the results they want. The problem lies in “rewriting” over previous habitual programmed responses that have just become a way of life. In this module, we will teach you the psychology of habit change and how to re-wire the brain and nervous system to get the outcome you and your clients desire.
In this module we will be building off of the psychology of behavior change. We will be teaching you how to implement a program that helps your client progress up a ladder that eventually moves them to their goals. By asking the right questions at the right time you will quickly be able to assess where that client is in terms of behavior change and you will know where to place them in the progression model.
How do you work with a client who is helpless, hostile, skeptical or just pushes your buttons? Learn pro tips and best practices for how to navigate challenging client interactions with skill, grace and compassion. It is these clients that not only need you the most, but seeing their success stories can be some of the most rewarding work you will ever do.
As a health coach you most likely want to give your all to every single client you work with, but there are problems with that… In time, you will find that you are spending many hours each day on email and quickly burning out. Since without you, none of your clients can get the results they need, we will be teaching you how to set health boundaries with your clients and work. This will enable you to also build a stronger, more sustainable health coaching business.
One of the hardest parts of moving into your new role as an industry leading IHP health coach is stepping into your own personal power. You have so much more potential than you are sometimes willing to show that we need to empower YOU to let it shine. Part of this will be overcoming the “imposter syndrome” that many of us face. This module will help you to become who you were meant to be!
Susan Karpinski, IHP2M June 2020 Graduate
IHP Mastery was an amazing experience. Fireworks went off in my head! By the end of the program, I had so much clarity and excitement about how to work with people and surprisingly, where I definitely want to go with my career and business. I know I am moving in the right direction. If a person has doubt about their ability to communicate with clients and facilitate behavior change especially with the most difficult clients and those with real life issues, that doubt will be extinguished and replaced with confidence by the end of the program.
I found there’s a bonus too! The skills I learned go beyond working with clients and can be applied to relationships with family and friends. You truly become a master in the art of coaching.
Upon successful completion of Mastery you will receive a beautiful new IHP Mastery certificate to proudly hang with your Level 1 or Level 2 certifications.
Plus, you will be encouraged to use the new IHPM or IHP2M initials after your name. The “M” signifies to all that you have taken your knowledge to the next level with Mastery.
Integrative Health Practitioner Insitute is now an approved school through the Health Coach Alliance.
Adding IHP Mastery to your credentials can help you qualify for membership with this organization and be able to use the professional designation of Registered Health Coach (RHC).
*Requirements are completion of IHP Level 1 + Level 2 + Mastery
With only 50 openings for our 2024 class, we invite you now to join the Mastery Certification Community! And for a limited time only, we want to extend an offer of $1000 off to join us in this next level in IHP health coaching certification.
Manu Field, IHP2M June 2021 Graduate
I am so glad that I made the investment in IHP Mastery, as this course built on all of the technical knowledge I gained from IHP1 and IHP2, adding a range of essential “soft” skills to my repertoire and allowing me to handle challenging clients more confidently.
I’m just finishing up IHP Mastery while writing this, and it has already benefited me greatly. I have picked up my first paying clients while studying this course, and I have been able to apply some of my new skills and self-awareness to working with them. I am also much more confident in charging fair prices for my offerings, whereas before I would have significantly undervalued myself.
I would recommend IHP Mastery to anyone who is serious about building a health coaching practice on top of IHP1 or IHP2. Before you do it, it’s a case of “you don’t know what you don’t know” in terms of how you interact with clients. It’s much better to figure out what you need to work on and improve in the safe space between you and your study buddy or peer group than “live” on a client call!
The Integrative Health Practitioner Institute’s mission is to take the health coaching industry to new heights.
We believe there is no other organization in the world that empowers health coaches to spread all of our mission of hope and healing and because of that we stand by our work. So, if for any reason within the first 15 days of the course start date, you do not feel it is the right next level of health coaching certification for you, just let us know at [email protected] and we will promptly refund your investment.
It’s that simple – Our goal is to help you create the best version of you and to reach your highest potential.
Andrea Johnson, IHP2M June 2020 Graduate
I didn’t think twice before signing up for the Mastery course. I loved every minute of studying for IHP1 and had already signed up for IHP2 so I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to take part in another course designed by Dr. Cabral. Now that I have completed all 3 IHP courses, I can honestly say that the information I have learned from the Integrative Health Practitioner Institute has been far more valuable than the 3 degrees I obtained at university.
With this knowledge, I can help change peoples’ lives for the better, and it has provided the most amazing foundation to establish my very own health coach business. IHP1 provided me with the foundation of Dr. Cabral’s DESTRESS protocol, IHP2 provided me with the functional knowledge of lab testing, and Mastery has been the icing on the cake to bring it all together.
Mastery has enabled me to think about crucial aspects of setting up my business, it helped me learn how to help get the best out of my clients and how I can improve my skills as a coach in so many different areas. Mastery also gave me an opportunity to meet with other IHPs, the IHP team including Dr. Cabral and Dr. Jennifer, and was an amazing networking opportunity to meet up with like-minded people from all over the world. I highly recommend Mastery to anyone who wants to get the most out of IHP and be the best health coach they can be.
After investing in the next level of your health coaching education and reserving your spot below you will receive:
Mastery really is going to be an amazing experience for all of us to come together with a common goal of becoming the best version of ourselves in order to help clients reach their goals. We will do this through learning new techniques and skills in a way to facilitate change in the world. The results are going to speak for themselves and I can’t wait to see the success stories you go on to create!
We hope you’ll join our IHP Mastery Community and we invite you now to reserve 1 of the 50 opening.
I wish you all the best and Ayubowan,

Mastery has helped me to shine a light on how I want to run my practice. It has given me the confidence that I need to take those courageous first steps toward building my brand. I would definitely recommend Mastery to anyone. Mastery is the icing on the cake of everything you’ve learned from IHP up until this point. It’s helped me create a vision for how I want to run my practice and I’m sure it will do the same for anyone who needs the extra skills to either take their existing practice to the next step or to take that leap and start their practice from scratch.
