"Health Coaching is a support tool in educating, developing, and empowering one in self-care management." - Dr. Oz
Anytime I introduce myself as a "holistic health coach" people politely smile and nod. They have absolutely NO idea what the heck it means - HA! If I'm lucky, someone will make an effort to ask more about my health coaching, but most of the time I have to make it clear right off the bat. Once I explain what I do, it's like the flood gates have opened! People are usually so intrigued that almost instantly begin asking questions about their health, what they should be eating, etc.
So that you're clear, I've summed up what my job as a health coach is below.
If you or someone you know could use the assistance of a health coach, give me a holla!
I'm Someone Who Will Really Listen
Health Coaches are knowledgeable advisors who provide ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness. As your Health Coach, I will listen carefully and help you to navigate the world of contradictory nutrition advice to determine what changes are necessary for you.
Why a Health and Nutrition Coach?
When was the last time you talked with someone about your health and received the personal attention you deserve? It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on their nutrition and fitness goals with a trained professional. As a Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health goals. I have studied all the major dietary theories and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you in discovering which approach works best for you.
Realistic Goals With Real Results
Most approach to nutrition dwells on real, wholesome food. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline. No one diet or fitness program works for everyone.
I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
