Creator of Emotional Fitness®
Warren Redman began coaching in 1983, the same time as he started to develop the approach now known as Emotional Fitness®. He became certified as a Master Coach with the International Coach Federation in 2014, the only one in Atlantic Canada.
Born in England, Warren has worked in retail, manufacturing and corporate businesses. He turned to community and youth work and opened his own community consulting and coaching practice, working with a wide range of small and multi-national corporations, non-profit organizations and government agencies across the UK.
He moved to Calgary in 1994, where he set up the Centre for Inner Balancing, later called the Emotional Fitness® Institute, where he taught his Emotional Fitness® Coach Training Program to hundreds of people, including psychologists, human resource professionals, health workers, entrepreneurs, leaders and managers.
In 2009, Warren moved to Shediac NB, continuing to coach and to train others. He has presented at counselling, HR, education and coaching conferences across Canada, as well as the UK, Australia and Israel.
Warren is the author of 17 published non-fiction books, many of them describing the processes and work of Emotional Fitness®, one of which is a winner of the Canadian counselling book award. He is now turning to a different kind of writing, enjoying the challenge and stimulation of the world of fiction. He is currently working on his eighth novel.
He is a recipient of the 2016 YMCA Peace Medallion, past President of the Writers’ Federation of New Brunswick and a member of the Writers’ Union of Canada.
