Health Coaching FAQs
What is a health coach?
A health coach is an expert in the process of health behavior change. Health coaches provide education and support as clients set goals and make decisions about what actions they’ll take to improve their health.
Do health coaches collaborate with other healthcare practitioners like physicians?
Yes. A health coach is not a replacement for a doctor or other licensed practitioner. However, health coaches can help fill the gap by spending more time with patients, supporting them as they move forward with health-supporting behaviors, such as those recommended by their physicians, dietitians, physical/occupational therapists, etc.
What types of clients do you typically work with?
In general, my clients are individuals who are motivated to improve their health. I am most passionate about providing support to worn out women who would like to recover from burnout and survive stress.
How long do clients work with you?
I typically encourage clients to commit to a minimum of 3 months. This recommendation is based on the principles of behavior change, and allows my clients to make sustainable health behavior changes through small, sustainable steps while receiving ongoing support.
What results can you guarantee?
I cannot guarantee any results, as such outcomes are based on subjective factors that are not within my control.
