Health and Wellness Coaching
I am a wife and mom, and the owner of Breakaway Training: a business that provides coaching services for endurance athletes. Since 2001 I have been helping runners, cyclists and triathletes reach their athletic goals. Over the years my approach has evolved into a more holistic approach to fitness and health that includes clean eating, mindset, mindfulness, rest and recovery. This is what led me to pursue a Health and Wellness Coaching Certification through Well Coaches. I'm interested in what wellness means to people and thoroughly enjoy partnering with them to explore ways to achieve their individual wellness goals.
What does wellness mean to me?
WHAT IS HEALTH and WELLNESS COACHING:
A Health and Wellness Coach is not an expert or educator. We are not going to tell you what is best for you, what to do, or what to eat. Nor are we therapists or counselors. We help clients and patients to discover their own path to better well-being.
The coaching process I use is centered on a client-based wellness vision, in which you set realistic and attainable 3-month goals and design weekly goals (or action-oriented experiments) - the small steps that will help move you towards your wellness vision.
I assist clients in achieving their wellness vision by using mindful listening, reflections and inquiring questions. This helps clients to uncover what is important to them and discover their strengths, clarify their values, and identify their motivators. We brainstorm possibilities, focus on successes (looking at what is working, or has worked, instead of focusing on what doesn't) and harness strengths to overcome barriers to support the wellness vision. This process has proven to be highly successful in helping clients navigate from where they are now to where they want to be. WellCoaches report that 70% of 3-month goals are achieved using this approach.
Coaching is just as effective over the phone as in person, if not more so. The phone allows for a deeper listening. And the convenience makes it easier for clients to commit to and keep appointments. We don't even need to be in the same city or time zone!
The end result of Health and Wellness Coaching can lead to increased personal responsibility, self motivation, self-confidence, the ability to self-discover, and increased self-efficacy. It leaves clients feeling they are in control, with a sense of accomplishment, and they have strategies to fall back on to help overcome future challenges.
