What is Wellness Coaching?

Professional coaches have long been recognized for their skills in helping athletes and executives perform at their best. Now professional wellness coaches are helping people reach their best health and well-being.

Wellness coaches are trained to help clients develop and implement personal wellness plans by:

  • accepting and meeting us where we are today
  • asking us to take charge
  • guiding us in doing the mindful thinking and doing work that builds confidence
  • helping us define a higher purpose for wellness and uncover our natural impulse to be well
  • addressing mental and physical health together
  • helping us draw a personal wellness blueprint
  • helping us set realistic goals; small victories lay the foundation for self-efficacy
  • harnessing the strengths we need to overcome our obstacles
  • helping us view obstacles as opportunities to learn and grow
  • helping us build a support team

Wellness coaches are practitioners and life-long students of coaching psychology, a field focused on the scientific study of happiness and well-being.

Great coaches have several skills you will notice early. They are great listeners and enjoy your stories. They foster self-acceptance and self-respect. They arouse, engage, energize, and challenge you to reach higher at the right moment. They have a bird dog's ability to sniff out your strengths, values, and desires. They are playful when appropriate. They take risks and ask courageous questions. They don't rescue you from emotional muck - sometimes you need to sit in it for a bit to energize your desire to change. They know that your life is at stake if you don't take care of yourself. And they know how to celebrate your successes.

The process of wellness coaching progresses through several stages:

  1. You provide background information through various assessments, so that you and your coach are well-informed on the key issues, including medical considerations, as appropriate
  2. During the first 90 minute coaching session, you identify your priorities and develop a personal wellness plan including a vision, three month goals and the first steps.
  3. In subsequent 30 minute coaching sessions, each week, you and your coach review the progress toward your vision and goals, explore and resolve the most pressing issues, learn something new, and then agree on a set of goals for the following week. You will enjoy plenty of ah-hah insights along the way.
