Radical Remission Health Coach & Workshop Instructor Training

Are you interested in coaching and teaching others how to lay the groundwork for Radical Remission from a serious cancer diagnosis or life threatening illness?

My name is Kelly A. Turner, PhD. I am a researcher, writer, and psychotherapist who specializes in integrative oncology. For the past 15 years, I have shared my discoveries about the 10 healing factors common among Radical Remission survivors with workshop participants and coaching clients from around the world. Now, you can learn how to coach your own clients one-on-one and lead your own Radical Remission workshops on the 10 Radical Remission healing factors. 

Our inaugural Teacher Training took place at the Omega Institute in New York in October 2017, certifying teachers from around the globe. That was followed by a second in-person training in New York in September 2019. Since September 2022, we have been offering our trainings virtually, which has allowed us to train coaches and workshop leaders from 12 different countries around the globe!

This year, the Radical Remission team is excited to offer a virtual Radical Remission “Health Coach & Workshop Instructor Training” for 8 weeks starting in September.


At the training, you will gather the knowledge and skills needed to successfully coach people one-on-one through the 10 Radical Remission healing factors and to lead an experiential workshop that helps people:

  • Take charge of their healing process

  • Boost their immune system through diet, supplements, and exercise

  • Incorporate a daily spiritual connection practice

  • Increase their sense of purpose, reasons for living, and social support

  • Manage and release suppressed emotions, as well as increase positive emotions

You will leave with the readiness and tools necessary to coach people one-on-one and lead Radical Remission workshops in your own community.


The Radical Remission “Health Coach & Workshop Instructor Training” includes:

  • 8 weeks of pre-recorded video content taught by Certified Radical Remission Workshop Instructors, released via email every Saturday. 

  • 8 weekly online quizzes emailed to you each week, plus 1 online final exam. Note: You can re-take the quizzes and final exam as many times as needed in order to pass each one.

  • 8 weekly, 2-hour, live, Q&A Zoom sessions led by Certified Radical Remission Workshop Instructors every Friday at varying times to accommodate various time zones. The first and last sessions will be led by Radical Remission Project founder Kelly A. Turner, PhD. (Note: If you cannot attend the Friday sessions live, you will be able to watch the recordings at any time that works for you). 

  • A complete Coaching & Teaching Manual provided as a .pdf at the start of the training


After successfully completing the training you will receive:

  • A lifelong professional certification as a “Radical Remission Health Coach & Workshop Instructor,” subject to continuing education requirements

  • A complete set of PowerPoint slides, including presenter notes, for use at your own Radical Remission workshops

  • Your name, photo, and contact info posted on the Radical Remission website. For an additional fee, you can also advertise your upcoming workshops

  • Access to Radical Remission Workshop marketing materials and sample letters to potential workshop venues

  • Periodically updated slides and materials


Andrea Sexton, Certified RR Coach & Instructor

“I see people arrive at a workshop worried for themselves or someone they love. At the end, I watch them leave with hope, a stronger sense of community, new friends and a game plan that they can use right away to strengthen their mind, body and spirit.”


Kristi Cromwell, Certified RR Coach & Instructor

“The training has opened up doors for me that might not have been possible otherwise. I am very grateful for Dr. Turner’s research and it is an honor to share her work as we help to improve the lives of those we teach.”


Justine Laidlaw, Certified RR Instructor

“If you had asked me 2 years ago if I had the confidence to do this, I would have said, ‘No way!’ The Radical Remission Project and fellow teachers have given me the inspiration, the resources, the guidance, and incredible love and support to go for it! Since the training in NY, I have facilitated many community talks, and have run numerous workshops in my local community.”


Caryn Murray, Certified RR Coach & Instructor

“Taking the Inaugural Radical Remission Teacher Training certification class at the Omega Institute was such a profound experience for me on so many levels! We were taught all the materials we needed to move forward successfully as instructors, and by coming together with like-minded people from across the world, we are now a sacred support system for one another, personally and professionally.”

Radical Remission “Health Coach & Workshop Instructor Training”

Dates:  Sept 23 – Nov 17, 2023 (8, two-hour zoom calls on 8 Fridays)


NOTE: Registration for 2023 is now closed. We expect to offer another training in the fall of 2024. Please sign up for the waitlist below. 

Course Tuition:  USD $2295 (payment plans are available)

Note: Space in this training is limited, so early registration is recommended. Applications will be considered in the order in which they are received. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please see our FAQ’s at the bottom of this page for information on our scholarship program.


In order to be accepted into the “Radical Remission Health Coach & Workshop Teacher Training,” you must be proficient in English (especially reading and listening) and then:

  1. Read the books ‘Radical Hope‘ and ‘Radical Remission’ by Kelly A. Turner, PhD before the start of the training. Available wherever books and e-books are sold, or at your local library.

  2. Take either an in-person or livestream Radical Remission workshop (preferred) or our self-paced RR online course before the start of the training. This is the workshop you will be trained to teach, so it is important that you experience it first-hand as a participant. 

  3. Show us that you are already a licensed psychotherapist, psychologist, doctor, nurse, social worker, mental health counselor, or certified coach (from a program accredited either by NBHWC or ICF) by uploading a .pdf or .jpg of your diploma, transcript, or certificate of completion during our registration process. Please note: The Radical Remission “Health Coach & Workshop Teacher Training” is meant to provide an add-on curriculum that complements a person’s existing counseling or coaching practice. If you are not one of the professionals listed above, but believe you have adequate mental health counseling experience (e.g., a pastor with 20 years of experience), please email us here first before submitting your application. Alternatively, if you can show us that you have been accepted into a separate coaching or counseling program, we can still enroll you in this Fall’s training. However, we won’t be able to provide you with your Radical Remission certificate until you show us that you’ve successfully completed your separate coaching/counseling program. You may enroll in any coaching/counseling program that is accredited either by NBHWC or ICF, but if you need a suggestion, we can highly recommend the Wisdom of the Whole Coaching program, since Dr. Turner knows that program’s curriculum and its founder very well.


If you have met ALL of the prerequisites listed above and are ready to sign our Licensing Agreement, agree to our Cancellation Policy, and make your payment, then we eagerly invite you to register. Note: Registration opens on July 17 and closes Sept 28.

John Henry is a lifelong educator and currently develops and leads training programs in his role as a STEAM, (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) and Sustainable Schools Specialist at the New Jersey School Boards Association. His passion in his professional role allows him to help promote healthy schools for the 1.4 million children in NJ. 

In 2014, John was diagnosed with hairy cell leukemia. Six months into his diagnosis, he discovered the Radical Remission Project. As a result, fear turned into hope and possibility, and new healing modalities came into view as John began following the 10 key healing factors. 

He began by radically changing his diet, slowly integrated exercise, eliminated stress, and eventually added the other key healing factors. The results were a stabilization of the progression of the leukemia for almost 4 years. He is currently collaborating with HealTHY Life NJ, an organization whose mission is to support, educate and raise funds for late-stage cancer patients seeking integrative and complementary treatments. Through HealTHY Life NJ, John speaks to cancer patients and shares with them his journey and healing modalities. John completed the Radical Remission Workshop Teacher Training at Omega Institute.


Mana Washio is very excited to be part of the Radical Remission team. She was certified as a Radical Remission Workshop Facilitator in 2019 and certified as a Radical Remission Health Coach in January 2020. Mana is also certified as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and a Reiki Practitioner / Master Teacher.

Mana went through her own journey of  surviving cervical cancer in 2009:  due to the strain of virus she carried, Mana had been told by her doctor that she was in the highest risk group.  She decided to incorporate major diet and lifestyle changes, and took many steps to improve her mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.  Although her doctor was quite certain that the cancer would return, there has been no reoccurrence, and at present, no HPV virus has been detected in her body.

Because of her own experience, Mana wants to spread  Dr. Turner’s research to many people in the world.  Her future goals include giving Radical Remission workshops / coaching opportunities to the Japanese-speaking population.

Karla Mans Giroux, a Co-Director of the Radical Remission Project, is a cancer thriver living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Karla was originally diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 and underwent a bi-lateral mastectomy, chemo, and radiation. Eleven years later, in late 2014, she received a devastating metastatic cancer diagnosis. With a goal to live to be 100+ this did not align, and so she decided to do all she could to manage this challenge.

Karla embarked on a holistic healing journey to help herself regain optimal health and longevity. She is blessed to report stable scans / “no evidence of disease” since 2016!

Karla became passionate about sharing what she learned so that everyone has a better chance of overcoming the odds. She received her training as a holistic health coach through Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy and is certified through the National Board of Health & Wellness Coaches (NBHWC). She is also a Certified Radical Remission™ Workshop Instructor & Health Coach, and an inspirational speaker.

Karla is passionate about inspiring and teaching those on a cancer journey, as well as those seeking prevention, general health, and longevity. Learning to use the mind and spirit to heal the body is a continuing source of learning, and something that Karla shares with clients.


Liz Curran, a Co-Director of the Radical Remission Project, was inspired to become a health coach after caring for her sister with an aggressive breast cancer diagnosis in 2014. She watched her sister struggle during treatment with feeling powerless to aid her own healing. During that time, Liz believed that there had to be a roadmap out there to guide people to play a stronger role in their own healing. She believes Radical Remission is that roadmap. She later witnessed the power of lifestyle change firsthand, which motivated her to train to become a cancer coach. Liz has been moved to share her experience ever since.

In her practice, she takes an integrative approach to lifestyle change guiding others to release anxiety and cultivate resilience and calm that so often surrounds a diagnosis. Liz coaches her clients to break through limiting beliefs and implement “self-health” techniques to foster a balanced approach to life.

Liz received her certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, as well as the National Board of Health & Wellness Coaches (NBHWC), and the Forks Over Knives Rouxbe Plant-Based Online Culinary School. She enjoys working as a Holistic Cancer Health Coach, Certified Radical Remission™ Workshop Instructor & Health Coach, and Speaker.  ​She is deeply inspired to empower others to find their voice and play an active role in their health and recovery without feeling alone.

FAQs about the Health Coach & Workshop Teacher Training

  • What is a Radical Remission?
    A Radical Remission is a statistically unlikely remission from cancer or another illness, and can include remissions that occur 1) without any conventional medical treatment, or 2) after conventional treatment has failed, or 3) when conventional and complementary methods are used at the same time to overcome a dire prognosis (that is, anything with a <25% 5-year survival rate).
