Health Coaching

Health — it’s big business. All of us have been affected in some way by the current global health care crisis. Costs are skyrocketing. Obesity, diabetes and chronic diseases are out of control.

So, what can we do about it, and how does Health Coaching fit into the picture? Well, what I like to tell people when they ask me what I do as a Holistic Health Coach, is that I create a strategic alliance with my clients that empowers them and enables them to effortlessly transition from the S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) to a plant-based, living foods lifestyle. As a result they reach other health goals in the areas of weight loss, exercise, stress management, and even eliminating addictive behaviors.

If you think that using the services of a Health Coach might be your answer to gaining control over some illusive health issues you’ve been struggling with, or even if you’re not sure but simply curious, please contact me to arrange for a complimentary no-obligation 1/2 hour coaching session, which would be done over the phone. Let’s see if this is the right avenue for you! Maybe it is, maybe not, but you’ll never know unless you check it out. And it’ll be a fun and enlightening 30 minutes, I promise, which can provide you with insight and direction. Not a bad way to spend half an hour, don’t you agree?!

So, why is Health Coaching a good investment for you? Well …

According to Peter J. Weiss, MD FACP, “Coaches are prepared and ready to help you with your lifestyle goals in a way that doctors are not. As a doctor, I prescribe a coach.”
Dr. Mehmet Oz recently told the US Senate that we need Health Coaches. And in a CNN interview, Dr. Oz reported that health coaches should be a part of every public clinic, medical office and hospital wellness center and should be reimbursed by insurance companies and corporate wellness programs.
And Dr. Andrew Weil says that “When athletes want a competitive edge, they hire a private coach to monitor their progress. When it comes to your health, using this mindset could also be beneficial.”
“People want to be more in control of their health but they may not have the resources, information, or professional guidance to be successful,” said Jan Maurer, MD, Vice President & Medical Director, Health Dialog. “We believe health coaching is a critical and proven part of the solution and can help people change their lifestyles to improve their health. A Health Coach can help people understand and overcome barriers to healthy behaviors.”coach

Why choose me to be your Health Coach? A good question that deserves a good answer. Here goes: is my training institution. In this program, students learn the fundamentals of various aspects of health and wellness and how to customize these concepts to the individual client. The curriculum includes classes on Reducing Stress, Managing Weight, Smoking Cessation, Exercise, Eating Healthier, Coping with Chronic Health Conditions and how to make other health related behavioral changes based on proven scientific models.

Health Coaching is intended to help people make and adhere to meaningful lifestyle changes through the development of a supportive relationship that can help to facilitate behavior change and attain goals. We focus on the health of the whole person which includes physical health but also meaningful relationships, a fulfilling career, positive energy, spirituality and balance.

Here’s the philosophy we follow at — HCT utilizes a form of coaching that honors the client as the expert in his (her) personal and/or professional life and believes that every client has natural gifts and talents that allow him to solve most if not all of his problems. Standing on this foundation, the Coach’s responsibility is to:
Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
Encourage client self-discovery
Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
Hold the client as responsible and accountable
And we don’t even have to live in the same town for you to use my coaching services. Nor do you have to travel to me, you can be coached right in the comfort and privacy of your own home. How convenient is that? My clientele work with me via phone, Skype, email, and the Internet. Location is not a factor thanks to the technologies we have at our fingertips in this day and age. Clients can live in the U.S., as well as internationally, and we work as seamlessly together as if we were sitting in the same room face-to-face.

Being a Baby Boomer, I find that those of my generation are taking their health seriously and want to not only live longer but have a quality of life that makes their ‘golden years’ more enjoyable. While my clients are mostly Baby Boomers also, I am happy to coach people of all ages — the only criteria are that you have to want to change, are willing to be accountable to me as your coach, and you believe that having someone come alongside you is going to be beneficial to your success. Check out my Client Comments and decide if you think I can help with your health needs. If you keep doing what you’ve always done, what will your life — and health — be like 5 years down the road: the same, better, or worse? In your ideal world, how would you like it to be? Please, don’t put this off, your health is your most important asset — cherish it and protect it, your body will thank you in a B-I-G way!
