People registered with our practice can now access health and wellbeing coaching; a brand new service available to anyone looking to make positive, lasting change to their health!
What is Health and Wellbeing Coaching?
Busy lifestyles. Long-term health conditions. Difficulties and issues at home. They all impact how our bodies work and feel and are a common reason why people visit their GP. These complex issues can often change how we eat, sleep, feel and stay active; the main building blocks that keep us well.
Pills and medicines can only help so far which is why you might find your healthcare professional recommends you try health and wellbeing coaching; a dynamic, proven approach for lifestyle-related health problems.
A health and wellbeing coach has time to listen and work with you about the things that matter to you. Not just in treatment but in life. At each session, you’ll talk about topics which are important to you, set goals for yourself and be guided towards activities, tools, and things in your life that may help if you need them. Led entirely by you, with your coach right behind you, motivating and encouraging you. Every step of the way.
Benefits of Health and Wellbeing Coaching
- No judgement – our coaches live in the ‘real world’. They understand the real-life issues and challenges most of us face from time to time, better than most. They won’t tell you what to do, judge who you are or tell you to drink avocado smoothies and do yoga everyday either!
- Led entirely by you– you are the expert in your own life. If you want to move forward and improve your physical or emotional health and are ready to commit, our coaches will be right behind you, every step of the way.
- Focused on the practical – the goals you set for yourself are yours alone. Our coaches will help you plan and create manageable steps to reach those health goals and increase your knowledge, skills and confidence along the way.
