Innately we all want to live long, happy and fulfilled lives. We want to see our children and grandchildren grow up and have the energy to be actively involved in their lives. We want to be able to set and achieve goals in our career and we long for meaningful relationships. Yet, in order to live abundantly in a society that praises productivity and idolizes burnout, it can be confusing to find this mystical ‘work/life balance’ that is so often mentioned in the ‘How-To’s’ of the wellness preachers.
In order to understand what a health coach is, it could be helpful to understand what a health coach is not. Understanding that people can hold multiple degrees and certifications, in and of itself a health coach is not:
A certified psychotherapist
A personal trainer
A licensed physician
It is also important to note that a health coach is not here for the quick fix or short term gain.
Health coaches are trained in multiple disciplines in order to help you create lasting transformational habit change.
