Health coaching is a relatively new profession, but the idea behind it is really rooted in how we, as human beings, operate.
As a Health Coach, I help you work with your unique body, and take into consideration how everything in your life affects your health and wellness.
At first glance, you may think what a Health Coach does is not much different from a conventional Nutritionist or Dietician, or a diet programme. However, we focus on both Primary and Secondary foods which ultimately creates positive changes that last.
It is easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. Its not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives.
Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes Secondary.
I work with the concept of bio-individuality.
I create customised plans for my clients based on their individual circumstances, lifestyle habits, health condition and other needs. I like to work with my clients over several months with sessions that last 50-60 minutes. I am able to be with them every step of the way so that we are able to look into lifestyle choices and work on changing habits, resulting in meaningful and positive behavioral changes that last for a long time, delivering long-term health benefits. My approach focuses on implementation and integration, so that healthy changes are integrated into your life. We live in the age of information overload – you don’t need more information, you need to know which information to use and how to make them work for your life. Instead of treating symptoms, I work with my clients to get to the underlying causes of their health concerns. We look at how issues such as stress, emotional distress, physical activities, lack of “soul” nourishment etc. effect our overall wellbeing. I help my clients cultivate the awareness to improve all areas of their lives. I support my clients to work with their body on healing itself so that they can eventually reduce the amount of medication that they rely on. Instead of forcing my clients to stick to some “plan” which does not work for them, I first listen to my clients’ needs and concerns, then work with them to get over blocks or resistance, making any behavioural changes they make stick.
