JOIN THE WAITLIST

You're smart and savvy and you love helping your clients get life changing results.

You've done the trainings, you have the certifications and the degrees.

You're always looking to learn new practical techniques (not more theory) to better yourself and your work. 


And, you walk your talk. You're living a healthy lifestyle. You quit drinking yourself.

The only problem is, you don't feel completely confident when coaching others who are questioning their own drinking.

But you know alcohol is likely the root cause in many of your client's symptoms and struggles.

And

You know alcohol is hindering your client's ability to reach their health and life goals even though they often don't have outward negative consequences from drinking.


Your Clients Are Probably Gray Area Drinkers.

 

We’re all familiar with the rock-bottom kind of drinking that ruins too many lives, and on the other end of the spectrum, there are those who never or rarely drink. 


If your clients fall in between these two extremes, they are probably drinking in the gray area. 

Let's be honest ...


The alcohol question is always on the table and you're the one who decides how far to take it.

Now you can learn exactly how to help your clients who identify as gray area drinkers and give them what they've been craving and searching for all along.

Maybe your clients ...

  • Tell you they only drink "a couple glasses of wine" and they don't want to give that up, despite wanting to follow a healthy nutrition plan. 
  • Struggle with low energy, depression, hormone imbalances or weight issues yet nothing seems to help them feel better except that nighly glass of wine.
  • Report feeling anxious, they have difficulty sleeping and burn the candle at both ends so they drink to take the edge off.

    You can clearly see the connection between your client's symptoms and their drinking.

Now it's time to help your clients step out of this gray area drinking cycle!

You know your clients will benefit from useful resources and techniques that help them stop drinking and stay stopped.

And I'm here to give you those resources.

Recovery Coaching for Gray Drinkers is a rapidly expanding niche that is in need of qualified, talented health professionals who have a practical and scientific understanding about what the body and brain needs when quitting drinking.
 

Adding this element to your existing coaching program will give your clients a greater life-changing transformation, making you even more valuable to them!

 

WHEN YOUR PROGRAM IS MORE VALUABLE, YOU CAN CHARGE & RECEIVE 

MUCH HIGHER RATES FOR YOUR WORK!

 

You Need Recovery Coaching Techniques That Work!

You need to know:

How to help your clients deal with cravings in the body and the brain. 

How to navigate the emotional stress response and the energetic carnage

How to work with a traumatized nervous system with trauma-informed language.

And exactly what to do when your client says "x" or does "y".  

This is not just about quitting drinking, this is about supporting your clients through the process of repairing, replenishing & rebuilding their body and brain once they stop drinking.

You also need to know how to run a successful recovery coaching business.

And I want to teach you that too!


Hey, I'm Jolene Park 

Almost 4 years ago I decided to leave gray area drinking behind and it has been my mission to guide and support others as they do the same.

Not only have I acquired a lot of knowledge through extensive study in a nutrition certification, trauma informed yoga training, over 1,000 hours of continuing education in functional medicine and neurotransmitters, I've facilitated corporate wellness workshops & consulted with patients in internal medicine, neurology and family practice medical offices.

I've coached 100+ high achieving professional women through their own gray area recovery process and I did a Tedx Talk about it too--->

 

But I can't do this all  on my own!


Over half of my gray area drinking coaching clients are in the healthcare industry. I’ve coached social workers, nurses, therapists, nutritionists, physician assistants, physicians, yoga instructors, acupuncturists, other coaches, as well as attorneys, CEO's of non-profits, senior level executives/managers, and entrepreneurs.  

This is just a sample of the people who need this gray area drinking coaching support. 

I'm packaging up all the wisdom, tips and techniques so you can help others to understand their cravings better so they can stop drinking and stay stopped.

This is your invitation to join me in the first offering of this exclusive and unique training. You can't get this anywhere else.

Week 4: Navigating Stumbling Blocks

Week 5: Working With The Stress Response 


  • In this week we will address how your client deals with outside stressors - like going on vacation, social situations and unexpected triggers.
  • When we're under stress the cognitive, logical brain isn't running the show, it's the animal brain and I'll show you how to connect with that part of the brain to better help your clients.
  • I'll show you how to help your client move past the self-sabotage patterns that keep them stuck.
  • How to keep your client and yourself on track throughout the coaching engagement so you don’t get burned out and frustrated with your client’s weekly up’s and down’s.

FAQ's

Do I need to have a certification or degree to take this training?

While I don't require any specific training, it is important that you have already taken or are currently enrolled in some type of coaching program or health professional training. 

If you just quit drinking recently and want to become a recovery coach, that's awesome! I just don't recommend taking this as your very first training. 

How is this different from other training programs?

I'm well versed in the knowledge of the body and mind's reaction to quitting drinking and every day I work with clients in this way.

I can't help all the gray area drinkers who are out (there are a lot!) by myself and that's why I want to share my unique and practical techniques that I've perfected over the last few years. 

How many people will be in the training?

This is a small group training. You will not be lost in a crowd, your questions will be answered and you will get attention from me personally. I'm here for you throughout the training.

How soon can I start using what I learn?

You can start to apply what you learn right away. You'll get actual case studies from me, (from actual clients *privacy ensured) so you will know what to do. You will be integrating what you learn into your coaching practice in real time.
