HEALTH & WELLNESS COACHING
What is health coaching?
At the very core, health and wellness coaching is a relationship between you and another person who cares about one thing only: YOU. Coaching is an opportunity to feel heard, believed and empowered.
A health coach helps you uncover what you want, set goals, pursue those goals, and celebrates with you when you make progress. Your goals may be related to your physical, mental, social, financial health or any other “spoons” that are important to you.
When you have a chronic condition, you need knowledge, skills and confidence to be your own best advocate and actively participate in your care. This all takes time, time that your doctor most likely doesn’t have. Your health coach has that time and works side-by-side with you to uncover issues, try new ideas and look at the results.
How can a health coach help you?
All of the top athletes have a coach. They know that to be their best, they need help with honing their skills, optimizing their performance and staying motivated.
Just like an athletic coach helps players improve in their sport, a health coach helps you improve your health and wellness. There is no one size fits all approach, so you’ll work together to understand the root causes of your symptoms and to make changes in areas such as sleep, stress, nutrition, exercise and gut health. Think of your wellness coach as your champion, advocate, educator and accountability partner.
You’ll feel more empowered: As you work with your health coach, you’ll gain confidence through:
Learning new information
Adopting healthy behaviors
Trying new skills
Recognizing the emotional impact of chronic illness
Fully realizing that you CAN take charge of your health
How much time does health and wellness coaching take?
Appointments with your health coach last about 30 minutes. During your first virtual appointment, you’ll spend some time getting to know one another. Your coach will ask about your health and what you’d like to work on. It’s a conversation and you get to decide what’s important to you.
Your coach will reach out between appointments via chat, sometimes just to say hi, sometimes to check in on goals. You can also send chat messages to your coach whenever you have a question, need a listening ear, or want to report on progress.
