Coaching, as we all might agree, is getting assistance to do something better, whether it be singing a song, hitting a ball or giving an important presentation, because we can’t always do it all on our own. We often need help.
Why would you need help with your overall health or wellness? You’re an adult; don’t you automatically know how to take care of yourself? Not necessarily true, as can be proven by skyrocketing medical costs and the increase in obesity and diabetes, just to name a few examples.
Considering getting a Health & Wellness Coach? Are you unhappy with your weight and/or physical checkups? Worried because other friends or family members have lost their quality of life because of poor health? Do you see others making changes in their lives and you just can’t seem to do it?
Health and Wellness Coaching offers you a supportive, structured environment to succeed in making the health related changes you want in your life. By building a collaborative relationship with a highly trained coach, you are guided to set forth your personal vision for your best possible self, then assisted in establishing achievable goals and developing tools to make that vision a reality. The primary purpose is to develop awareness, responsibility, and motivation for behavior change related to health & wellness.
Health and Wellness Coaches partner with clients seeking self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values, which promote health and wellness and, thereby, enhance well-being. In the course of their work, health and wellness coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, and honoring that each client is an expert on his or her life, while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.
Health & Wellness Coaching is more than just coaching people toward improving specific health behaviors, or helping people manage chronic disease. Health & Wellness Coaching meets each client as a whole person to help empower them to develop the focus, motivation, energy, and skills to make effective choices and sustained efforts toward well-being. A Health and Wellness Coach collaborates with you to make lasting behavior changes that will help you reach your goals to live your best possible life.
