What is Health Coaching?

Like Life Coaching, Health Coaching utilizes goal setting, identification of obstacles, and use of personal support systems. The relationship between the Health Coach and client is a structured, accountability partnership focused on the overall health outcome goals as defined by health care practitioners and the patient or client.

Health Coaching asssist clients in making practical decisions about next steps in life and how to break life and health goals into measurable action steps and foster more self-efficacy. The Health Coaching model can be used to assist clients in managing chronic disease, promote health, and aid in the recovery from surgery or other medical procedures.

The Circle of Life Health and Wellness Coaching Model is based on a holistic approach to lifestyle management, with a liberal focus on mind body self-care practices that help to empower individuals receiving the coaching to improve their well-being and quality of life. Health and Wellness Coaching, along with life and executive coaching are perfect in wellness programs and in the area of work life balance and for stress reduction and disease prevention.

Health coaching is probably the most important program component in any wellness, group support, or integrative medicine program as it is the key to empowering patients to take greater responsibility for their health and personal success.

Added key concepts: wellness programs, chronic disease self managed care, disease prevention, stress management, health self-management, health cost reduction, employee wellness.
