What is a health coach?
A health coach will help you to get the best out of your health and reach your health goals. They provide knowledge and expertise. The ideal health coach is one who is a health care professionals with a few years of experience under their belt. A health coaches role is to guide, support and keep you on track. Together you work out your health plan, designed for your uniqueness, goals, ability and resources. Once you have agreed on the program, the coach then implements easily manageable steps to reach your health goals.
Here are my 7 reasons to see a health coach
- Keep you on track, honest, and hold you accountable.
- Shows you how to achieve the steps, that you would not usually do on your own.
- Looks out and keeps an eye on you.
- Ask questions that you would not normally ask yourself.
- As a resource of practical information.
- Motivate you when you need it.
- Provide emotional support.
What can a health coach do for me?
Don’t make this decision lightly, it is a comment to ‘you’ your future health and wellbeing depend on your commitment to yourself. It would be wise to look at your health from a long term perspective. As you have more time to integrate the body and mind, making adjustments at a moderate achievable pace. And then, you will need to make time to do your homework, follow a diet, exercise, get adequate sleep, spend time actioning the steps towards your health goals. It is an incredible journey of discovering. However, you may have some good days and some challenging days. There is no doubt that you will reach your goal, the only reason you will NOT is if you ‘give up’ and stop taking steps to get there. After all, you are 100% in control of your success. Besides that, I want you to succeed. My reputation relies on it.
What is the role of a health coach?
As a health coach, my role is not to make you feel good. But here to help you overcome your beliefs that are stopping you from getting healthy. At the same time, I will provide support through the difficult times so that you can get back on track. On the whole, my job is to guide you towards reaching your goals, and show you:
- What you have:
- To do.
- To give up.
- To do more of.
- Show you the way and help you grow.
- Review and make adjustments.
- Use supplements to assist you along the journey.
Lastly, leading by example, what I teach you I do myself. On account of my health, I see a mentor to help deal with my osteoporosis that was diagnosed two years ago. I have incorporated a plan that covers my diet, lifestyle and exercises specifically for bone building. As well as seeing other health professionals measure and check my progress as my body heals. This is a long term, ongoing treatment for the rest of my life.
