Integrative Health Coaching
Integrative Health Coaching empowers you to make lasting health behavior changes. It bridges the gap between medical recommendations and your abilities to successfully implement those into your complex life..
Integrative Health Coaches work with the whole person, take time to listen to your concerns, and ask powerful questions to help motivate you to make changes. Coaching helps facilitate behavior change in a structured, supportive partnership between you and your coach.
Coaches can help you identify obstacles to change and create strategies for forward movement and can provide additional resources for making healthy behavior changes.
Integrative Health Coaching shares similarities with other modes of coaching as it is supportive and helps people get the best results with what they are looking to achieve. It is, however, different from:
Athletic coaching is similar and different than health coaching. It’s similar in that the coach will be your partner with you to support and champion you as you take those next steps to reach the health goals you want. It’s different in that unlike sports coaching where the coach is actually the expert on “how to play the game” with health coaching you are the expert on your own life. You pick the goals you want to achieve.
It’s not like traditional therapy as we don’t spend a lot of time unpacking the past and what has happened to us. Integrative Health Coach is forward looking. We do look at things that have worked in the past for learning for the future. Integrative Health Coaching is progress and process oriented.
