How can health coaching help?

Let me tell you a bit about health coaching- what it is and how it differs from other helping relationships.

What Health Coaching is...
  • 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

What Health Coaching isn't...
  • mentorship, where expertise or knowledge is shared with mentees

  • therapy, where the therapist is an expert in psychological assessment, diagnosis or treatment, and often gives advice and direction

  • education, where information is taught to learners
