Health Coaching is a relatively new profession in the healthcare space. I find that many people don’t really understand what health coaches do.
According to the relatively new National Board that certifies Health Coaches, “Effective health coaches help clients set realistic and achievable wellness goals. They collaborate with clients to develop personalized action plans, breaking down long-term objectives into smaller, manageable steps to foster progress and success.” - NBC-HWC
I like to explain it using the analogy of a road trip. Health coaches are skilled in and trained to encourage and support people who are on a health journey from where they currently find themselves to where they know they can be. Health coaches help clients to envision the possibilities with their health and chart a course to take them there. The client’s own strengths, values, and resources define the path they will take, while a coach provides evidence-based guide rails … and often some fuel for the motivational fire!
In my private health coaching practice, I primarily help busy moms adopt simple, sustainable health habits so they can feel good in their bodies and have the energy to be fully present with their kids.
