A health coach is professionally trained and certified to help clients with weight control issues, IBS, skin conditions (such as eczema), food allergies, inflammation, sleep problems, stress management, helping children manage ADD/ADHD, and more. A primary objective of the health coach is to eliminate the causes of the existing problems and develop strategies to prevent further negative conditions or diseases.
You begin by completing a health history, then meeting with me either in person or by phone to discuss the relevant issues and areas of concern. If you believe that I can provide a meaningful benefit in achieving your wellness goals, you can join the program and get started.
If you choose to work with me, I will want to meet twice a month for 6 months. In between sessions, I will be available by email to answer any questions and will send recipes, resources and other helpful information. We will assess your progress on a regular basis and make adjustments at each level of success.
Together we can! To decide if health coaching is right for you, schedule a free initial consultation. We will discuss your health and lifestyle to determine how I can best support you in achieving your goals.
The health coach provides a holistic approach to achieving health and wellness by identifying the underlying cause of problems as opposed to simply treating the symptoms. By eliminating the cause of the problem, you can eliminate the symptom. This can frequently be accomplished through a program identifying diet and lifestyle choices. Many clients have realized significant improvement in their health and overall feeling of well-being in as little as a few days. This translates into reduced medical costs and less sick days.
The health coach makes small changes over a 6-month period to develop good habits that are sustainable over the long-term. They provide education and support as clients make adjustments and reach their goals. When appropriate, they can also work in tandem with the primary care doctor. Many doctors are over-worked and lack adequate time to offer ongoing follow up. The health coach can partner with the doctor to help support necessary changes for improved health.
