When it comes to a healthy lifestyle, it’s more than just what you eat and how you exercise. The quality and quantity of your sleep, how you deal with stress, and your emotional well-being also play a role in your overall health. Health Coaching can help you set specific, measurable, action-oriented goals and create a step-by-step plan to support your process along the way. Sessions can be held in-person, Skype, FaceTime, or Telephone
Change is hard. Find out how working with a health coach can help make changing your diet, exercise, and lifestyle easier.
If you lack commitment, self-motivation, or just the ability to kick your own self in the pants, a personal trainer could be key to getting your new fitness routine off the ground. When you exercise on your own, it is easier to skip a session here and there or fall off the wagon completely since there’s no one to hold you to your actions.
Comfortable conversations with an integrative health coach, a partner who is invested in the client’s success, will help you make self-directed, significant and sustained changes in your wellness. The process is integrative and takes a whole-person approach — considering body, mind and spirit as well as the community and environment in which she lives and work. We believe clients are the experts in their own lives and what is essential to their well-being. The coach provides the structure and space to support change.
Anyone who wants to make a significant transformation in her health and wellbeing may benefit from coaching. It is for anyone who wishes to address anything from typical health concerns to social and emotional ones and live a fully-present life.
While integrative health coaching does include one-on-one work between the client and coach, it does not involve diagnosis or treatment of medical issues. The focus is on helping the client achieve insight on what optimal wellness truly means on a personal level and take action toward that goal. The coaching process is extremely practical and forward-focused.
We all need support to achieve greater health, build new health habits, and change a lifetime of health behaviors – and that’s where health coaching can play an important role.
“I was trying to get in a consistent meditation practice for years and finally was able to pull the trigger AND stick to a consistent schedule with the help of Julie. I also was able to lose a few pounds that I was looking to lose by honing in on what needed to be cut out of my daily diet. The way Julie coaches made things seem very approachable and non-intimidating, where I was comfortable making initial steps in the right direction.”
