What is Wellness Coaching?
Wellness Coaching is a one-on-one collaborative conversation where a coach will aid you in achieving your health and wellness goals. The job of the coach is not to “treat” you, but to be your ally and your resource. You will be supported in creating a vision for your wellness in addition to planning behaviors/habits you can make/build to advance your overall health. Your wellness coach may refer you to medical, psychological, nutritional, and other health-related services if appropriate.
Wellness coaching supports people in finding balance in life by building a plan to reach their wellness goals. Our wellness coach will help you take small, attainable steps towards your goal – whether that be creating healthy eating habits, managing your time, or coping with stress. They will support you in meeting these goals through accountability, continuous encouragement and motivation!
What to expect from your first session:
Every session is different depending on the individual and the goal they identify. Most sessions, however, will follow a basic format:
- Each session we will ask you to take a minute to fill out a small survey to assess the reason that you chose to come in for a Wellness Coaching session and your current health status.
- Next, your Wellness Coach will facilitate a conversation where the individual will discuss their goals, any relevant obstacles, and possible options for ways to accomplish the desired goal. Note: This is a conversation and not a prescription. Both the coach and the individual will be involved in the process.
- Finally, you and your coach will determine a way forward. After exploring options for accomplishing a goal, a specific and measurable goal will be decided on and the need for future sessions will be assessed.
