A health coach is a trained and certified professional who can help you reach your best health and well-being. He or she can help you develop a personal wellness plan with realistic goals. Your health coach will inspire and challenge you to go beyond what you would do alone.
During the first session, your coach will help you identify your priorities and develop a personal wellness vision, three-month plan and realistic goals.
You will have a total of 12 appointments, which can be scheduled weekly, bi-weekly or once a month. You and your health coach will meet either in-person or over the telephone. During these sessions, you will review the progress toward your wellness vision and goals, address any barriers and agree on a set of reasonable goals for the following week.
If you discover that your goals can be best attained by working with additional health or wellness professionals, your health coach can connect you with those resources and help schedule those appointments.
By the end of your coaching sessions, you can expect to have made significant progress and feel energized and confident that your goals are reachable.
