Popular TV shows portray health coaching as a buff man or women drilling you to follow a certain weight loss or work out program or take certain supplements. This is not wellness coaching.
Wellness Coaching is about YOU and what you want to change and helping you do it. Wellness Coaches do not tell you exactly what to do, what to eat, or what supplements to take without you making the decision on your own.
They guide you in making lifestyle changes to achieve a higher wellbeing and quality of life.
What wellness coaching is not: Medical treatment or psychotherapy A specific diet Certain types of supplements One type of workout program Medical advice Counseling Promises of healing any modality
What wellness coaching is: Provides accountability to help you make changes Helps create vision, realistic goals, and expectations Provides change strategies to reach your goals Helps identify what motivates you Listens intently to help you figure out how to overcome your obstacles Asks great questions and encourages you to arrive at your own answers Encourages you to move beyond where you are to where you want to go
