Coaching Process

Supporting Your Success


What is health coaching?

  • a process to help you make lasting, sustainable changes in your health and wellbeing

  • a collaboration between you and the coach: you have expertise in your life and circumstances, and the coach has expertise as a facilitator- with the goal of getting you to your best health and wellness

  • coaching utilizes your strengths and core values; empowers you to find your own unique solutions; supports you in your change journey; recognizes and connects you to your motivations and wisdom; and provides accountability to you as desired for the changes you’re making

  • goal setting, action steps and supportive review help you move forward toward your health vision

The Process

Individual coaching is available via videoconferencing, telephone or in-person locally.

The process looks like this:

  • an initial 45 minute no charge discovery session in which we'll get to know each other, discuss how you see your health presently and what you'd like to work toward, and determine our fit to work together

  • the next session is about developing a compelling vision for your future, and the goals to get there

  • ongoing sessions are scheduled 2-4 times per month, according to your needs and preferences. A three month commitment is suggested to make sustainable changes

  • regular re-evaluation of where we're at and adjustment as needed to reach your objectives

I am happy to collaborate with your health care team to help you achieve your goals.

Virginia is compassionate, perceptive and empathetic. She has helped me learn to overcome unproductive habits and create new routines that foster increased health and wellbeing. I have learned a great deal about myself and I consider her coaching visits essential to my health journey.

I have had the pleasure of working with Virginia Hurdon as my Health Coach for the past year. I had made a commitment to myself that I was going to make changes in my life to be healthier, move without pain, lose weight, etc, etc, but felt overwhelmed with the journey ahead. As a Health Coach, Virginia helped me break it down into smaller, achievable goals. She provided the support & guidance to build healthy habits. She helped me see things from a different perspective and offered new strategies. I’m happy to say I have achieved making many new healthy habits for life with her guidance. She helped me build my confidence so I can continue on this journey myself as it doesn’t end here, it’s only the beginning.
