Health coaching addresses the whole person, what it means to thrive mentally and physically, and how to leverage the biology of change. It facilitates sustainable change and optimizes health and well-being. Clients move from dependency to empowerment, making longer lasting, confidence building, internally motivated changes that are appropriate for your evolving life. The positive emotions generated by coaching helps alleviate chronic stress and the damages it causes to health.
Coaching is a learning/self-development model focused on the paradigm of possibility and achievement. During coaching, the focus is on optimal performance and the coach supports exploration of health priorities. Questions often focus on present and future situations with a goal to move towards optimal behaviors.
Counseling is a medical model focused on diagnoses and fixing a problem. Questions often focus on past & present situations with a goal to restore patients to a level of functioning.
Sessions are held over the phone or Zoom meeting, depending on your schedule. They are 50 minute calls that usually include: checking in, seeing what is working, developing goals, creating action steps, talking through setbacks, and creating breakthroughs. Every call will be different depending on where you are in your program.
Depends on the program that is the best fit for you! Booking a discovery call will help determine what will be the best fit for you. Time-wise, phone calls are bi-weekly and you will be expected to work on dedicated action steps and plans during this time. How much time you put into your self work will be reflected in the changes you see (either small or big- both of which is fine!).
I combine my studies of Positive Psychology and Motivational Interviewing with the energetics I have gained through my advanced yoga teacher training. I look to empower my clients to become actively involved in changing their lives by helping to roadmap ideas, goals, and action.
