What is Wellness Coaching?
“Wellness” is how you create health through specific practices. A wellness coach takes a holistic approach to your well-being by assessing the Seven Aspects of Wellness. These Seven Aspects include the following: physical, emotional, environmental, intellectual, spiritual, financial and social. Through a detailed analysis of these aspects, the coach and client work TOGETHER to formulate a plan for lasting lifestyle change.
A Wellness Coach is there to help you identify and make the lifestyle changes needed to achieve your personal and health-related goals. They are trained in specific strategies, techniques and methodologies and can provide tools to help in the process of lifestyle transformation.
What should I expect in a coaching session?
During the first session, you will go through a specific detailed questionnaire. This is for me, your coach, to learn about you as an individual. You will be explaining your wellness vision and where you see yourself from one week to five years from now. Once the “what” and “why” is established, you and I will address the “how”. This is done by establishing the potential obstacles to the desired behavior change, and where the strategies to overcome these obstacles are developed. Strengths are also identified and implemented to encourage lasting change.
My job as your coach is to encourage you to achieve your goals, which are made simple and short-lived to achieve the larger, more long-lasting goals. You set realistic and well-defined goals as I hold you accountable to your goals. Through this process, you become more accountable to yourself, and your self-confidence and self-esteem grows with each success. Before you know it, you are making changes that you never thought possible!
In our sessions together, I may utilize some of the following techniques to help in your wellness journey: Auriculotherapy (reflexology on the ear) can help with several things, such as weight loss, smoking cessation, pain management and a great way to relax; Essential Oils, which are also utilized in Auriculotherapy; Education on the uses of Essential Oils for emotional health and everyday use; Stress Management techniques such as breath work, meditation, progressive relaxation and guided imagery may be utilized for stress related issues; Flower Essence may be used as an energy medicine to balance emotional and spiritual imbalances; Energy Work is used to balance any aspect of wellness needing to be addressed; Food as Medicine, using nutrition as a major source of our Qi (Energy), to promote the health of our bodies and give the brain good fuel. Coaching tools such as the Wheel of Balance and the Values Sorter survey are used during coaching sessions to help you identify the areas of change and develop strategies for change that are lasting.
