What is Health Coaching?
Health coaching is a collaborative and personalized programme that focuses on improving health and wellness. It builds an individual’s capacity to achieve short- and long-term health and fitness goals. The Health Coach focuses on the mind, body, spirit, emotions and social wellbeing that helps patient make the changes in their life. Health Coach has a broader understanding of the disease process and the nature of illness, healing and wellbeing by addressing the biological, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and environmental influences that affect the patient’s health. The hallmark of health coaching is working with the “whole person”. Health Coaching is a step-by-step process moving you towards your health and wellness goals.
In general, Coaching is present and future focused. A coaching relationship focuses on where you are currently in your life and where you would like to be. It enables you to explore, discover, strategize and puts you on the position that ‘You are an expert of your own life.
As individuals, we have unique issues and lifestyle situations that require different tools and techniques to achieve optimal wellness. The Health coach will work within the uniqueness of your lifestyle to develop a step-by-step plan to achieve what you want to achieve. Health coaches are trained to help patients change their behaviors, attitudes and lifestyles using a tailor-made approach. Health Coaches work based on Doctors diagnoses, so where a physician serves as an engineer treating the disease; the health coaches serve as an instructor, changing their attitudes, beliefs, and lifestyle. Health Coaches are essential and integral part of people’s health and wellbeing.
