Health coaching is not about giving advice on how to improve your health
People have often already received advice on how to make healthy changes in their life. They already know what changes to make, but circumstances make these changes difficult to start or keep up. That is where health coaching comes in. It helps to increase motivation, introduce healthy behaviors, and develop ways of living a healthier life in a way that works for you.
Examples of Goals we can work with
People may want to lower their weight due to health concerns or simply to feel more comfortable in their body. We work with people to find what changes in lifestyle are realistic and long lasting.
Management of health conditions
Lifestyle can have a dramatic impact on pre-existing health conditions. Clients who have received health advice for a condition but struggle to apply this into their life may benefit from health coaching.
Becoming more active
Increasing activity can help improve quality of life, health, and wellbeing. However, this has become more difficult with the rise of desk jobs, car transport, and sedentary activities. Health coaching helps clients to look at increasing activity in their life.
Reducing stress & low mood
Physical and mental health are interlinked, and difficulty in one area can often have an impact on the other. Health and Wellbeing Coaching can help you identify activities which will improve your mental and physical health.
