What is health coaching?

Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching is a client-led transformative process, where the coach listens and the client identifies various roadblocks getting in the way of your  goals.  Together, coach and client look for ways to help you address these roadblocks. 

New habits could include a range of lifestyle upgrades that help by reducing stress and inflammation and increasing nutritional density.  A review of the broad circle of life that impacts your day-to-day well being will reveal individual opportunities for growth.   At the beginning, you set your personal goals.  During the program, we will brainstorm small changes that will help you achieve these goals and thus transform the rest of your life.  This is not dieting or a temporary fix.  This is a way to live your best life.   

Why does health coaching work?

Health coaches are trained to create a supportive environment that enables YOU to articulate and achieve your goals. Our coaches have learned cutting-edge dietary theory and coaching techniques that help clients make small, individualized changes over 6 months.  The cumulative effect of small changes really adds up, more than you think possible!  

Do I really need 6 months? 

You can expect big results thanks to a personalized approach to finding the best nutrition for you while focusing on other primary health goals. 

Each session is designed to leave you feeling inspired and motivated.  Our mutual goal is to seek balance in all areas of your life.  

You will have ample chances to discuss your own unique life, health, and goals at length.  This level of focus on your health is quite often  the most valuable component.  When is the last time you put  your own needs first? 

Sticking with the program for 6 months allows for deep change to occur. 

Our 12 sessions together give ample time to cover all aspects of your health including relationships, finances and other typical stressors. 

Quite often, it is the non-food areas which are acting as roadblocks.  Time allows us to uncover the hidden challenges. 

An accountability partner (coach) can be  very strong motivation for you to take action.  We will be checking in with your progress.  We will navigate the natural ups and downs of your progress together.  You will develop new skills to use for the rest of your life.
