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.

A health coach “partners with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. They support personal and professional growth based on self-initiated change in pursuit of specific actionable outcomes. Coaching is future-focused on creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals in one’s work or personal life. The emphases in a coaching relationship are on action, accountability, and follow through.”

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.

Coachability Index

As a health coach, my job is to assist you in developing and achieving goals. In order to do this, you play a major part in the process. To determine if health coaching is a good fit for you, please answer the following questions:

How willing are you to change behavior in your life?
How willing are you to try new things that you’ve never done before?
How willing are you to do things that make you uncomfortable or feel a little scary?

Stages of Coaching

Building awareness (reflection)
Teaching tools to help remove the obstacles
Partnering to set goals and create the life you want
After the obstacles are removed, what do you want to create now? What’s your vision?
