What is Health and Wellness Coaching?
Most individuals know what they should be doing to ensure they are in the best of health, have been told what to do by numerous healthcare professionals but still can’t change their habits. Enter the health coach! Health and wellness coaching is an emerging and vibrant area of healthcare developed over the past 30 years in the USA, utilising the latest evidenced based behaviour change strategies. Using carefully formulated questions, motivational interviewing and planning, health coaches guide and empower individuals towards taking responsibility for their own health and for adopting long term and effective healthy lifestyle choices. Clients are encouraged to set their own goals and develop their own strategies to change. Health and Wellness Coaching can dramatically improve patient compliance and practitioner success rates and is an excellent adjunct to any healthcare discipline.
