What is wellness coaching?
Wellness coaching is an evidence-based discipline in which coaches help clients achieve their wellness goals through mindset and behavior change. These lifestyle changes are facilitated by identifying each client's unique vision of wellness, building on each client's strengths and potential challenges, and developing the motivation to take the next steps. Unlike other disciplines (e.g., medical, psychotherapy, personal training), there are no prescribed rules to follow in wellness coaching; the goals and means to achieve them are individually developed with each client through collaborative discussion. You are the expert on you, wellness coaching helps harness that expertise to development meaningful and realistic steps to a healthier and happier you.
Wellness coaching is appropriate for all aspects of physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. Common topics of coaching include physical activity, nutrition, resiliency and stress-management, and chronic disease prevention/management. If you desire long-lasting changes to improve your health, wellness coaching can help create clarity, structure, confidence, motivation, and accountability to achieve your vision of wellness.
