Health coaches work with you by phone, email or in person to help you stay on track with your personal health and wellness goals. They can help you with things like:
- Healthy eating
- Weight management
- Stress management
- Tobacco cessation
The first time you meet with a health coach, you’ll develop personal goals and an action plan. Follow up sessions include a review of your progress, discussion around any challenges you’re facing and a look at goals for the next session. Your health coach will work with you for about three months, but timing varies based on your specific needs.
Trained to promote wellbeing
If you’re running low on motivation, need help recognizing health risks or want additional support in your health journey, a health coach can assist you at any time along the way.
Every health coach has been trained and certified to give you the information, guidance and encouragement you need. Many health coaches hold a health and wellness undergraduate degree or certification in personal training.
All of our health coaches are board certified by the International Consortium for Health and Wellness Coaching (ICHWC), meaning they’ve reached the minimum standard and measure of foundational competencies of health coaching knowledge, training and skills to make them efficient and informed health coaches.
