Health Coaching

Are you struggling to lose weight, eating compulsively, lacking in energy or self-esteem?

If you answered yes, then you recognise that trying to overcome any of these problems on your own is extremely difficult.  If you have tried quick fixes to any of these problems you will already have found that ………(emphasise the pain they are feeling more here)

In fact almost 90% of people who make a conscious effort to make significant change in their lifestyle habits never succeed in achieving any meaningful progress.

How often have you set a new year’s resolution to lose weight, go running or walking 2-4 times a week?  By the end of January this is a faded memory and already consigned yet again to next year.

Making meaningful changes is tough and with some help from a trained health coach it is possible to make some or all of the changes that you want.

Healthy living is about balance and not about being totally virtuous in every single lifestyle choice you make. Feeling and looking healthier doesn’t have to involve a total life overhaul, or becoming a zen monk.

Health Coaching is focused on staying healthy rather than having to treating illness.  As such the potential for significant change is almost unlimited. This pro-active approach to your health and wellness builds a new and powerful health consciousness, leading, encouraging, and supporting you toward making conscious choices in the areas of nutrition, exercise, and developing a healthier mind set, with feedback – but without judgement.

My goal is to inspire you to achieve a healthier lifestyle and overall wellbeing by understanding that health and healthy living is not simply limited to eating well but it also encompasses your

  •       Your relationships
  •       Your physical health
  •       Your mental health.

If of these is off, or you aren’t fulfilled in these areas, finding balance is very hard to achieve. You will get  suggestions about a healthier lifestyle that doesn’t need to be difficult, or overwhelming.

If you’re lucky, you might even be able to get over the fear of the dreaded “green monster drink.” You will get information that is accessible and easy to understand. There are so many conflicting dietary theories and information available, so I will help you to deconstruct them and help you find the one that fits into your lifestyle, at this particular time and stage of your life.

You will benefit in a variety of ways from engaging a professional health coach

  •       Achieve your health goal in a sustainable way and create some new habits
  •       Feel good about yourself for having been able to establish new and health focused habits
  •       Feel comfortable in the knowledge that because your body and mind are in better shape you’ll have less need of doctors in the future
  •       Any More?

Working with a health coach can have significant short-term and long-term benefits for motivated individuals  You will receive the support you need to implement meaningful lifestyle changes that will further your wellness goals. As a health coach I can offer broad-based support for overall health and wellness, or may specialise in areas such as:

  • Weight loss
  • Weight management
  • Stress management
  • Binge eating
  • Improved nutrition
  • Food cravings
  • Exercise and fitness
  • Shopping for healthy foods
  • Compulsive eating
  • Increased energy
  • Enhanced mental focus
  • Self-esteem and self-sabotage
  • Juicing for weight loss and detox
  • And many other areas of health and wellness

Again, based on what is most important to you, you may wish to hire me as your coach, who can help you in many areas, or you may choose to work with a health coaching specialist, someone who will help you focus on changing one crucial area of your life.

It’s important to always remember that your health coach will not replace your doctor, but will instead support your wellness goals in an effort to help you avoid needing a doctor as often as you may have in the past. Health Coaching will help you set goals that will lead to a healthy lifestyle, rather than regularly getting sick and being treated after the fact.

Oh and if you do want to run a 5km or even a marathon, I’ve spent a lifetime dedicated to running.
