What is Health Coaching?

Health coaching, also referred to as wellness coaching, is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change by challenging a client to listen to their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action.

Wellness has been defined as “the degree to which one feels positive and enthusiastic about life”. Your health coach will assist you in crafting your wellness vision and then achieving it. A wellness vision is a creative statement that reveals your highest potential and can include physical, emotional, social, spiritual and financial realms of life. A new life vision empowers one to see new possibilities along with a specific and clear direction and allows you to activate your imagination and then think, feel, speak and ultimately see the manifestation of your highest potential. It is a tool used to move to new levels of wellbeing by connecting you to your own truth and wisdom that is held within.
