What is health coaching?
According to the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching:
Health & wellness coaches support clients in activating internal strengths and external resources to make sustainable and healthy lifestyle behavior changes. Health coaches use a client-centered approach wherein clients decide their goals, engage in self-discovery or active learning processes, and self-monitor behaviors to increase accountability, all within the context of an interpersonal relationship with a health coach.
Whatever goal the client sets, the health coach ensures that they are supported until the desired outcome is achieved. Our board-certified coaches display an unconditional positive regard for their clients and have trained to the highest standards in the profession which means that they have the skills and knowledge to walk alongside you on your path to your healthiest self.
So, what does that mean for you and our work together?
My approach is personalized to YOU. What do you value? What are your goals? How do you want to feel each morning when you wake up, and each night before you go to bed? Together we will identify the changes that will make this a reality in your life. I know you can do this!
In general, health coaching focuses on four areas: nutrition, exercise, stress and sleep. My approach will also focus on the many parts of your life that impact those areas – work, relationships, environment, your whole self. As long as the focus is on the future and not the past, it can be part of a health coaching session.
Here are some of the challenges that I help clients with:
- Living a life that feels truly in alignment with your values
- Learning to trust your own voice
- Being resilient when you try something new and it does not go as planned
- Finding real comfort at the end of a long day
- Making nutrition and food choices that you feel good about
- Increasing movement and physical activity
- Improving sleep
- Reducing stress
- Avoiding burnout
- Navigating social connections
- Planning and productivity
- Using technology intentionally
- And so much more!
