Health Coaching

Are there health behavior changes that you’ve wanted to make but either haven’t known how or haven’t been successful in the past? Has a new health concern arisen that you want to pay particular attention to? Maybe Integrative Health Coaching is for you!
 
What is an Integrative Health Coach?

A health coach motivates and supports health behavior change through a structured partnership between the client and coach. The coach helps the client develop and realize their optimal health vision through inquiry, personal discovery and accountability.

What are appropriate topics for health coaching?

The coaching relationship is unique. The coach and the client form a partnership to better equip you to realize your optimal health vision based on your own goals and values. Any concern that gets in the way of taking care of your optimal health is the perfect subject with which to begin coaching. Therefore, any topic you want to bring up that you think will contribute to your optimal health is an appropriate topic for Integrative Health Coaching.

 What health coaching is NOT:
  • It’s not therapy and/or counseling. A health coach doesn't’t treat a disease. A health coach partners with a client to make behavioral changes.
  • It’s not life coaching. Life coaching focuses on enhancing leadership skills. Health coaching focuses on health related goals.
  • It’s not an education course. A health coach is not teaching you new skills. The health coach is partnering with you to develop the skills you have.
