Health and Wellness Coaching Q&A

What is health and wellness coaching?

Health and wellness coaching is an individualized service that improves your physical and mental health by identifying potential problems and unhealthy habits and then creating a lifestyle plan to restore optimal wellness.

Your wellness coach works closely with you to develop a long-term strategy for healthy change. Coaching can address any part of your personal, social, or work life, including a poor work-life balance, chronic stress, and feeling generally unhealthy even though you’re not sick.

Health coaches help to identify your goals and outline the steps you need to take to achieve them. But the health coaches don’t stop there. They stick with you, offering encouragement, motivation, and adjusting the plan to meet your changing needs.

Health coaching often focuses on key problem areas, including

  • Improving nutrition
  • Reducing stress
  • Getting restorative sleep
  • Getting regular exercise
  • Managing your time
  • Stopping smoking
  • Supporting mental health

Achieving physical, mental, and emotional wellness requires each of these key areas to be in balance.

Who can benefit from health coaching?

Anyone who wants to feel better, develop healthy habits, and create a positive lifestyle can benefit from health coaching. You only need to be willing to explore your habits, values, and abilities, have the desire to improve your life, and be ready to make changes.

What should I expect during health coaching?

Your health coach asks a lot of questions and also does a lot of listening during your first appointment. They learn about your lifestyle habits and roadblocks and discover the issues that have stopped you from making changes to improve your health.

Though it’s essential to identify your personal problem areas, health coaching is a strengths-based process. Your coach identifies your strengths, possibly finding attributes you didn’t recognize in yourself. 

Your health coach uses their expertise to recommend actions, hold you accountable, and help you make sustainable changes. But you’re the only one who can do the work to reach your goals.

Your work is made a little easier with the support of a health coach navigating your way and helping you learn to trade unhealthy habits for healthy behaviors and activities that last a lifetime.
