On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate yourself in terms of your health and well being? Is this where you want to be? If no, why not? What’s getting in the way of you achieving your optimal health? Could it be lack of knowledge? Or is it something else?
Most of us know cognitively how to live a healthy life, but we are not putting this knowledge into action. Knowing better does not always equal doing better. This gap between knowing and doing is the expansive territory of a health and wellness coach. In this space, coaches focus on the often invisible barriers and take the hands of clients to support and guide them towards their goals.
In the Health and Wellness Coaching program within Georgetown’s Institute for Transformational Leadership Health and Wellness coaches are trained on fundamental coaching competencies in the context of health and wellness. From nutritional challenges, stress/anxiety, and sleep disturbances to smoking cessation, chronic disease, and physical activity, the context of Health and Wellness is broad. Health and Wellness Coaches partner with clients to compassionately support and provide accountability to the goals clients set for themselves. Coaches help clients see what they are missing and better understand what is getting in the way of success.
“Health & Wellness Coaching is the change agent that shifts the culture and delivery of healthcare from dependency to empowerment.”
