Health and wellness coaching is a partnership between you and a trained, health and wellness professional to help you be your best and healthiest self.
A health and wellness coach can help you clarify what it is you want to do in order to get, and stay, healthy. The coach will work with you to design an individualized action plan based on your Personal Health Assessment (PHA) and help you create realistic goals by breaking them down into smaller, achievable action steps.
Your coach can also assist in getting you the necessary screenings, biometrics, fitness options, immunizations, resources and follow-up care from your health providers. In addition, your coach will encourage, motivate and support you toward reaching your goals and celebrate your victories with you.
