What is a Health Coach?
Health Coaches focus on getting to the 'root cause' of human behaviour when it comes to wellbeing
Qualified and Registered Health Coaches have studied the fundamentals of wellbeing - including up-to-date nutrition science and practice, exercise physiology, common contemporary health problems, medicines, navigating the health system, mind-body medicine, and how to interpret health research accurately.
But most importantly, Health Coaches learn about human behaviour, motivation and behaviour change.
Health Coaching IS: connection, trust, helping clients think and discover their intrinsic motivation, providing evidence-based health information, supporting and encouraging clients to become masters of their own wellbeing.
Health Coaching ISN'T: Judging, problem-solving for the client, 'having all the answers all the time', interpreting, fixing or prescribing.
