You may have heard of Wellness Coaching and if so, you’re probably wondering, “What exactly is a Wellness Coach?” Put simply, Wellness is defined as the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal. The International Coach Federation defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” Just as professional athletic coaches work with athletes to reach their highest potential in their particular sport, a professional wellness coach works with individuals to reach their highest potential in regards to their own well-being.
Now that you know what a wellness coach is, you’re probably left wondering, “How can a wellness coach help me?” Maybe you are having difficulty losing weight or getting into a healthy routine. Or perhaps you know what you need to do in order to feel your best or perform your best, but you keep getting stuck and just can’t seem to reach your goals. You may even wish to learn how to cope with the stresses of everyday life and have wanted to give mindfulness or meditation a try, but don’t know where to start.
Whatever the case may be, we all have certain “habits” of behavior and these habits can limit us and prevent us from changing, even when we know that changing or breaking those habits will move us forward. It is often hard to discover and begin new and healthy behaviors and incorporate them into our everyday lives. A Wellness Coach can guide you in breaking the old habits and cultivating new ones in order to live a more healthy, productive and satisfying life.
You don’t have to do it alone….
A Wellness Coach will work with you to reach your full potential, no matter what your concerns may be. Each coaching engagement is unique and is modified to fit the needs of the client. Working with a Wellness Coach will help you to self-assess, create a wellness vision, set goals, remove obstacles, learn what has held you back in the past, find your strengths, and use them to build a foundation of wellness that will last a lifetime.
