Welcome to Health & Wellness Coaching
We are delighted that you are considering training as a Health & Wellness Coach with us. We are passionate about this emerging niche area of coaching and believe that health and wellness coaches hold the key to meeting the demand for knowledgeable and skilled coaching professionals who can facilitate positive, sustainable shifts in the health and well-being of their clients.
This need presently comes from clients who are seeking support in tackling lifestyle-related illness, such as obesity, addictions, mental ill health, diabetes, high blood pressure heart disease and stress-related illness. However, emerging opportunities also exist within a wide range of fields from corporate organizations, insurance companies, health services, sports and performance related areas to positive aging and preventive healthcare. What’s more, as the public and private health sector continue to wake up to the needs to invest in the preventative health care of those they serve, health and wellness coaches are increasingly being used as part of the solution.
We describe Health & Wellness Coaching as a dynamic and innovative approach to helping individuals access their inner resources, develop self-mastery skills and achieve their health and well-being goals. It embraces a truly holistic and multi-dimensional model of coaching, one that is ultimately designed to liberate an individual’s potential for a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life.
It could also be referred to as a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change, by challenging a client to develop their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action. Health coaching draws on the principles of positive psychology and appreciative inquiry, and the practices OF MOTIVATIONAL INTERACTIONS & GOAL SETTINGS.
