Let me tell you a bit about health coaching- what it is, how it differs from other helping relationships, and when it may be helpful.
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
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
Do you have symptoms of depression, anxiety or burn out which are impacting your quality of life, your ability to be effective at work, or your precious family time?
Are you feeling stuck in a ‘less-than-before’ state of mental health, hoping for better and frustrated with trying to get there?
How’s your level of motivation in regard to your health? Would it benefit from looking deep into your values, your vision of wellness, and leveraging your strengths?
What would be possible for you, if you maximized your mental health by looking at the larger picture of wellness: mindset, nutrition, movement, sleep, stress management, social connection, and play?
Health coaching is designed to address all of these areas, using proven and researched techniques such as motivational interviewing, character strengths work, positive psychology, and the principles of empathic communication. It’s a collaboration, in a respectful, non-judgmental environment where you decide what to work toward and how to do that, with the unflagging support and accountability that you need to grow and succeed.
