What is a Health Coach
In a nutshell, we support our clients to achieve their health goals, through lifestyle and behavior modifications.
Everything from losing 5kg, to reducing stress and gaining energy, to improving nutrition and helping tame an autoimmune disease.
An added bonus of a Health Coach? We listen.
Not only are we certified wellness authorities (I’ve personally spent 1000 of hours pouring over the latest research), but we inspire, mentor, guide and motivate our clients to make positive health choices.
It’s health care at its finest – tailored to suit you!
The reality is that most people know what they need to do to be healthy, but they just don’t do it. You know that eating a box of BBQ Shapes is not healthy. It’s not rocket science.
But there’s a lot of factors that go into why you still eat it.
We have the time to dig into that…your Doctor doesn’t.
Think for a moment how much time your doctor spent with you during your last visit?
10-15 minutes? Most likely most of it was in the waiting room!
In that short period of time your doctor needs to quickly assess your symptoms and prescribing something to make those symptoms disappear.
They simply don’t have the time to asses all of the lifestyle and nutritional factors that got you to where you are today.
Many times, your doctor may prescribe medication that may not be necessary if they had the time to dig a little deeper to discover the cause of the symptoms.
As a Health Coach we will look at ALL factors that are contributing to your current Health & Well-being – Mental, Physical, Spiritual, Social & Financial.
We look forward to working together with your Doctor, Gym, Natropath or Therapist as part of your health care team!
If we adopt a “back-to-basics” approach of nourishing food and wholesome living we might just be able to reverse the trend of ever increasing diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disease, some cancers and much more.
And that’s what gets me excited!
