What Is a Health and Life Coach?
How would that help me?
A health coach is a master of habit change, an advocate for healthy living, a teacher of transformation, and an accountability partner to keep you striving to reach your ultimate goal.
Transformational health and life coaching is designed to deliver an extremely high level of accountability, loving support and the right system so that you can make empowered decisions and take bold action toward achieving your goals for your health and life.
How is a health coach different from a doctor?
A health coach does not prescribe medicine or take the place of a medical professional. They are the motivators to push you toward lasting results and lifestyle change using holistic and natural methods.
How does it work?
A health coach sets attainable goals with you, suggests alternative ways to cope with setbacks, and supports you in unmasking the true meaning behind behaviors — unconsciously or in reaction to external demands. Change is hard to make without accountability and sustained motivation, and that is where I can help you.
Individualized for your needs
My guidance as a health coach is different from a doctor, nutritionist or personal trainer in that I don’t prescribe a specific exercise or diet plan, but rather help and encourage you to intuitively hone in on the healthiest lifestyle for you. My guidance is individually tailored to meet your unique needs and goals.
Most people already know what they should be doing, but have a hard time sticking to it and staying on plan — especially when life throws them curve balls. Many people can make changes for a few weeks or months, but find themselves gravitating back to old habits and then they cyclically lose and regain the weight, all the while beating themselves up for not being successful. I often say, “knowledge does not equal habit change“.
That is where I can help you. As a health coach, I am a master of habit change, helping you change your relationship with food, money, work, and/or family. I help you to gradually reframe some of your old beliefs and habits that are no longer serving you and get around mental roadblocks that prevent you from having the life you deserve.
What about life coaching?
Life coaching uses many of the same techniques as health coaching, except that the problem spots are different.
I will work individually with you to assess the areas you need help with and we’ll work together to set goals, break down old habits and patterns of behavior that are no longer serving you and create accountability.
- That everyone holds the key to happiness within themselves
- That we all have the power to transform our lives
- That failure is just an opportunity for feedback
- That we can’t control all situations or others’ actions, only how we respond to them
- Our thoughts control our emotions and we have the power to change our thoughts
- When our talent meets our passion, we find the sweet spot
- There are endless opportunities to create the life you want
- Anything is possible and there is always a way
As a mother of four (teenage triplets and a preteen), a practicing family physician, a wife and a private health & wellness coach, my life is full! Oh – and we can’t forget the family dog!
It can be so easy to get caught up in the craziness of life and feel overwhelmed, but I’ve learned to embrace each facet and live intentionally so that I don’t blink and have it pass me by! My motto is to live life with no regrets.
I love working with other women and helping them find their passion, strength, inner wisdom, confidence, clarity and self compassion.
I hope that woman is you. Whether you seek weight loss, improved health, career guidance or clarity in other situations, I have the tools to help you.
