In health and wellness coaching, the coach (me) partners with the client (you) to make lasting transformational change that promotes your well-being. Transformation is not a cookie cutter endeavor. It only lasts when you decide what will work in the context of your life’s journey. As your coach, I would be your empowerment partner -- a supportive and non-judgmental guide focused intently on what you want to achieve and helping you become more conscious of the power within you to make it happen. Together we will develop a strategy tailored for you.
The focus of coaching sessions varies. The focus could be on getting more movement in your life, eating better and losing weight, reducing and managing stress, and/or making other lifestyle adjustments to address an illness. Other areas of focus include balancing the various aspects of your life so that you can better care for yourself and your family, making professional changes, and/or designing your life purpose. These are just examples. Whatever enhances your well-being can generally be the focus of our coaching sessions.
Eating and weight loss can be key to well-being. I can help you determine how to create and implement change in your eating habits, including in response to recommendations by your physician or nutritionist. I am also trained in mindful eating, a non-diet approach, to help you relate to food and weight differently – to become more aware of your body’s physical signs of hunger and fullness and your triggers for overeating, to learn to slow down and truly savor your food, to make better food choices, and to release guilt and stress related to food.
A coaching relationship typically lasts two to six months and may last up to a year.
Real change is more than just about deciding to do it. Are you ready to work in partnership with another to explore what you want and why you want it, consider objective feedback, and make a commitment to create and act on a realistic plan? If so you may really benefit from partnership with a coach.
