WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE HEALTH COACHING?
...A collaborative, client-centered process in which a client and coach kindle the client’s desires for change. Within the structure and support of the coaching relationship, the client is encouraged to explore their goals and to create achievable action steps tailored to their circumstances.
Clients benefit from the opportunity to focus fully on themselves, their needs, wishes, and goals. Their increased clarity of vision and purpose allows them to create change with greater ease and sustained motivation. Experiencing incremental successes on the path to a larger goal engenders confidence and self-efficacy. Achieving health-related goals improves a client’s quality of life, and possibly longevity!
Health coaching is different from other types of coaching in that it gets at the big WHY of positive change, and teaches clients skills to maintain their progress. With unconditional support from their coach, clients examine all facets of their lives, determine their underlying vision and values, and then align their lives accordingly .
