Society is in the grip of a stress epidemic. Stress is the single biggest cause of illness. Anxiety and Depression are the two biggest mental health conditions. Growing numbers of people are experiencing overwhelm and burnout.

HeartMath is a unique and powerful system of stress management, resilience building and high-performance techniques, tools and innovative biofeedback technologies. The system is easy to learn, practice and teach to others. And most importantly, it works! That’s why it has been used by organisations such as NHS, NASA, ITV, Nuffield Health and Microsoft as well as by hundreds of thousands of individuals worldwide.

A fulfilling and empowering journey…

When you decide to train with us you will embark on a fulfilling and empowering journey of 3 stages.

Stage 1

Your journey begins one month before the classroom-based training. Upon confirming your place you will be sent a package containing your emWave Pro system and Inner Balance ™ sensor. These are the HRV coherence biofeedback technologies which you and your coaching clients will use. We’ll help you to begin using the biofeedback and we’ll also monitor your progress and provide you with feedback of how you’re doing.

We’ll also send you our Transforming Stress book and the login details to your online e-learning. The e-learning consists of a number of short videos designed to familiarise you with the biofeedback technology, coherence techniques and a few of the basic self-awareness and self-regulation models we use.

You will also receive a one hour coaching session (online) with a HeartMath Master Coach to ensure that you have a sound understanding of the basics and to answer any questions you may have about either your personal practice or any of the content you will have read or viewed.

Stage 2

We will be spending 3 full days together experiencing a “deep dive” into the HeartMath system. We cover three main areas:

  • The science behind the HeartMath system – the impact of emotions of physiology, Heart Rate Variability and coherence.
  • How to coach others in the  HeartMath system – we introduce you to our process which includes a series of simple and powerful models, 3 “foundation” coherence techniques and 5 strategic techniques.
  • The biofeedback technology – what it does, what the data means and how to use the technology with your clients.


There is no homework other than to review what we covered during the day and to do 20 minutes of personal coherence practice before bed – you have to practice what you preach!

We usually have about 15 people on each Coach Certification programme and the group is always very diverse – and a lot of fun!

Stage 3

In the month following the training you will receive three more one hour online coaching sessions. The purpose of these sessions is so that you personally experience receiving the type of coaching you will be delivering and to give you an opportunity to discus and clarify any questions that may be outstanding after your training.

At the end of the journey you will be an officially certified HeartMath Coach!
