What is Health & Wellness Coaching?
Everyone gets stuck from time to time in ways of being that sabotage our health. Whether it’s the way we respond to stress, the foods we reach for or the choice to avoid exercise, we all develop patterns of behavior that can catch up with us. We may come to the place where we are ready to make changes but without a compelling “why”, we find ourselves sitting on the fence. Or, we’re so overwhelmed by the prospect of change that we don’t know where to begin. This is where coaching comes in.
“I saw an angel in the stone and carved to set it free.” – Michelangelo
I love this quote because it speaks about the work of coaching, the art of creating an environment through conversation and a way of being, that allows a person to move toward a desired future, one that transforms us into our best self no matter the age or health status.
When you hire a coach you work as partners to create a vision of your optimal health and wellness and then you travel the road together to reach that new future through goals. Coaches use approaches that help you to become an expert of your own well-being. The collaboration leads to a lasting lifestyle change.
