What Is Health Coaching?
Health coaching, also referred to as wellness coaching, is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavioral change by challenging a client to develop their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action. A health coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority that works with clients to help them feel their best through food and lifestyle changes. Instead of prescribing one diet or one way of exercising, health coaches develop wellness programs that are tailored to meet their clients' needs. At the Varad Program, our health coaches will create a safe space for you to reflect on “you – right now” and support you in setting and achieving your current and future goals. In addition, we provide you with the resources necessary to practice self-care and explore which food and lifestyle choices best nourish you – in body, mind, and spirit.
Why Should You Receive Health Coaching?
A wellness vision is a creative statement established by the client that reveals his/her highest potential and can include the physical, emotional, social, spiritual and financial realms of their life. A new life vision empowers one to see new possibilities along with a specific and clear direction. It allows a client to activate their imagination and then think, feel, speak and ultimately see the manifestation of their highest potential.
Previous clients our health coach has worked with have experienced positive changes regarding various issues that include, but are not limited to:
What Does An Appointment With Our Health Coach Look Like?
The manifestation of a wellness vision is done through the process of goal setting. Goal setting is a collaborative behavioral change technique used between the coach and the client. During the motivational interviewing process, after strengths, values and desires are determined and the client's vision is set in place, specific goals are set so the client is able to move in the direction of his/her newly formed desires.
