We are at the end of our 3-part series on health coaching. So far we’ve gone over Health Coaching 101 and How Health Coaching Can Help in Times of Uncertainty. Today I (Jesse) am going to wrap this series up by talking about what you can gain from health coaching.
1. Personalized Nutrition-Centered Plan Unique to YOU
There are an endless amount of “one-size-fits-all” diets that claim to meet all of your needs, but the reality is there is no such thing as a truly “one-size-fits-all” approach to food. How many times have you tried a diet with high hopes, only to see marginal and temporary success? As a health coach I believe that every client is unique, each presenting with a different set of needs and circumstances. It is my job to work together with clients to create clearly outlined and attainable steps that will actually help meet their needs and restore the body’s foundational well-being. One of my favorite things to do as a health coach is help clients work through their daily obstacles to wellness so they can finally break through and reach their goals.
2. In-Depth Support to Reach Your Goals
Making dietary and lifestyle changes to support wellness can be tough, especially if you are going it alone. I believe this is why many people don’t see the results they want, because they lack the support needed to get there. Remember my personal trainer analogy from the Health Coaching 101 post? A health coach can provide you the targeted and sustained support you need in order to make lasting changes to your wellness. It’s in the name, health COACH: we will cheer you on when the going gets rough, tweak your plan to make it attainable, and be on the sidelines encouraging you and teaching you how to reach your goals. My goal is to help you feel empowered in your wellness journey.
3. Tools to Empower You to Take Control
When was the last time you felt empowered to take control of your health? One of the biggest tools that changed the trajectory of my health was learning how to advocate for myself and be the leader in my own healing journey. Unfortunately, I had to learn these skills the hard way: through a lot of trial and error. So, as a health coach I want to take what I’ve learned and teach clients how to feel empowered to advocate for themselves and take control of their own healing journeys. I view my job as providing clients with the tools and then watching what they build.
4. Tangible Data to See Your Progress
When you start making incremental dietary or lifestyle changes, it can be hard to notice how your body is responding because we get used to how our bodies feel . Now, imagine having help in tracking your progress as you implement those dietary and lifestyle changes. A health coach can help you reflect on how far you’ve come as well as recognize and celebrate the small changes you might not have noticed. A health coach can be an objective observer of your progress to help encourage and motivate you on your healing journey.
5. Guidance Navigating a Complex System
Living with an autoimmune disease or chronic illness can feel very overwhelming. Oftentimes, clients are left feeling lost as they try to navigate the complex healthcare system. As a health coach, I help clients navigate this system by organizing their health information. I create cohesive plans that combine the suggestions from all of their providers. I connect clients with the right resources and practitioners to best support their health. I collaborate with the other members of my client’s wellness team to best support their goals. Lastly, like I mentioned before, I teach clients how to advocate for themselves and be the leaders in their own healthcare.
