Frequently Asked Questions

When is the right time to hire a health coach?

The right time to hire a health coach is when you're ready to make changes in your lifestyle to support healthier living and need guidance or support to achieve your wellness goals.

 

What topics can I talk about with a health coach?

Health coaching helps you develop healthy living habits and focuses on holistic well-being. You might choose to discuss topics in these wellness areas: physical, nutritional, intellectual, occupational, environmental, social, emotional, and spiritual.

 

What’s the difference between a Health Coach and a Therapist? A Registered Dietitian/ Nutritionist? A Personal Trainer?

A health coach focuses on behavior change, goal setting, and providing support and accountability to help clients improve their overall wellness. Health coaches do not diagnose, prescribe, or treat and often partner with other healthcare professionals who have qualifications that offer more comprehensive care.

  • A therapist addresses mental health concerns, emotions, and deeper psychological issues, developing personalized treatment plans to improve their client’s mental wellness.

  • A nutritionist (or Registered Dietitian) assesses, develops, and supports their client’s dietary changes that promote healthful eating habits, often including personalized meal planning tailored to individual health goals.

  • A personal trainer specializes in physical fitness, creating personalized exercise programs and routines to help clients achieve their fitness goals.

                                                

What can I expect during a health coaching session?

The first health coaching sessions typically involve a discussion of a client’s thoughts to their wellness assessment, which may be about thoughts provoked, current habits, future health goals, and challenges that are preventing desired healthful living. A wellness vision is then designed based on the client’s most desired future goal(s) will help to determine a good place to start.

Ongoing sessions involve personalized strategies for creating health goals that support desired healthful living. The health coach offers guidance and resources and helps the client maintain accountability and make adjustments as they progress towards their goals.

Our health coaching sessions are 45 minutes long, either weekly or biweekly, depending on the client’s needs. A health coaching program may last anywhere from 3 months to 6 months (or longer), depending on the client's needs and goals.

 

How will my health coach support me along the way and in between coaching sessions?

Your health coach will provide ongoing encouragement and accountability and offer helpful resources and tools that support your goals. Email check-ins are offered in between coaching sessions and referrals may be given should additional help be needed.
