Erin Forbes, RN

Register Nurse & Health Coach

Erin Forbes, RN, is originally from the Boston area, attending Simmons College and earned a BA in Communications, always having a passion for health and fitness. Erin is a certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist through NASM and worked as a personal trainer in two of Boston’s top fitness facilities. Desiring to deepen her knowledge of health, Erin moved to Worcester and earned a BSN in Nursing from MCPHS, and worked as a professional nurse in that area.

Erin then graduated Wellcoaches® as a Health and Wellness Coach. She is passionate about motivating her patients to empower themselves in leading healthy and vibrant lives. Erin incorporates her innate sense of compassion and intuitiveness along with her nursing and coaching training in all of her work. Erin has completed Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) certificate program at the UMASS Center for Mindfulness and uses these skills herself on a daily basis to help manage stress and live a fulfilled life and encourages patients to do the same. She also uses essential oils in her daily life and most recently completed a certification in European Method of Blending of essential oils through The Eclectic Institute of Aromatherapy and Herbal Studies.

Having some new health concerns of her own, Erin became unsatisfied with the lack of time, attention and treatment options she received from conventional health care facilities and noticed that this was the same “standard” treatment that was being prescribed to her patients. Determined to treat her own health concerns, Erin sought out Acupuncture, Craniosacral treatment, as well as changing her own diet to Organic Whole Foods based and realized that these treatments were incredibly effective! After growing tired and frustrated with the way conventional medicine was treating her and her patients, Erin went on her own sabbatical, where she completed the Wellcoaches certification for Health and Wellness Coach as well as other health certifications. Soon thereafter Erin discovered Groton Wellness and found this incredible center’s way of treating patients aligned with her own.
