What is a Health Coach?

What is a Health Coach?

Health coaching is the use of evidence-based skillful conversation, clinical interventions and strategies to actively and safely engage client/patients in health behaviour change. Health coaches are certified to safely guide clients and patients who may have chronic conditions or those at moderate to high risk for chronic conditions. -wikipedia

The process is done in a private one-on-one setting, either over the phone or through video calls. Your coach provides space for you to explore and create awareness of the habits and choices you are making without judgement. Through this awareness you are then able to make conscious choices, decisions and actions based on the way you want to be feeling and the goals you have for yourself. Creating small, attainable weekly action steps will move you forward, building momentum and increasing motivation.

What are the benefits of health coaching?

A health coach is able to help you learn, give you feedback, hold you accountable, and push you to be better.

​Health coaching is not a one size fits all solution, but a personalized plan that is unique to your needs and healing journey. You work together with your coach to determine what is best for you based on your goals. When things don’t go as planned, you and your coach are able to go back to the drawing board and figure out a new action to keep you moving toward your goals.

A coach provides information and teaches you the best practices so you can maintain your healthy lifestyle for the long-term. Your coach will provide handouts and links to curated information that explains how things work so your understanding of why you are doing them makes sense and follow through becomes a no-brainer.

Making change can be hard, and there will be times when you feel overwhelmed or unmotivated. Your coach is there to help you overcome those struggles or hurdles that will come up along your journey so you can continue moving forward. The coach is your cheerleader, reminding you that you can do anything and celebrating the little accomplishments and achievements you make along the way.

A coach is there to answer any questions you have and give you personalized advice when needed. Your coach is there to listen to you when you want to be heard. They relate to your struggles and know how hard making change can be because they’ve been there themselves. They provide that safe space you need to heal and grow without judgement.

Often time coaches are certified in many other modalities as well. This can help provide support in other areas that need nourishment along the way, helping you achieve your goals faster and more efficiently.

Is Health Coaching right for me?

  • If you’re confused by all the information out there and don’t know where to begin;
  • If you have tried many different diets, exercises or set goals without success;
  • If you aren’t feeling your best or are disconnected mental, physically or spiritually;
  • If you are looking for support to stay on track with the goals and health journey you are already on;
  • If you’re deep in your health journey and want to level up;

​A health coach can provide you the awareness and understanding of self, along with the support, accountability and a proven system to get you where you want to go.

You will be sharing a lot with your health coach, so being sure you are comfortable with them is also important. You need to make sure your coach is a good fit for you and you’re a good fit for your coach.
