What is health coaching?
A relatively new field in the medical system, health coaching facilitates behavioral adjustments that are realistic, obtainable and long lasting. A health coach is an expert in the health and wellness field who is trained to help you set and work toward achieving your personal health and wellness goals. She helps you execute and implement your plans!
Whether you’re looking to lose weight, eat healthier, get a better handle on stress, or change up your exercise routine, a health coach can help. A health coach will:
- Identify your goals
- Create and achieve small steps toward your goal
- Customize, implement and execute your plans
- Improve your self-management
- Help you stay motivated and accountable
- Help you achieve the results you desire
Evidence-based health coaching works with positive psychology, using motivational interviewing methods to uncover the client’s own voices which will lead to successful goal setting. Research has shown that having support during a challenging task helps the client achieve their goal much more effectively. Your health coaching sessions are always private and confidential.
Evidence Based Practice
Unfortunately, 1 out of every 10 people over the age of 35 has at least one chronic disease. An estimated 75% of all chronic diseases and the associated costs are preventable. Clinical Evidence-Based Practice interventions have been proven to yield better outcomes for those with chronic conditions.
Patients with chronic conditions such as obesity, heart diseases, hypertension, diabetes, COPD, and chronic pain can benefit significantly if they work with a health coach to help modify their lifestyle and reach their optimum health.
What Health Coaching is not
A Health Coach is not a physician. She does not diagnose, or offer medical advice, but will work with you on setting and working towards your goals.
Health Coaching at Bexley Acupuncture begins with trust
I am excited to offer evidence-based health coaching in my practice.
In my experience, several chronic health conditions (obesity, smoking, diabetes, hypertension, etc.) respond well to a series of acupuncture treatments plus the accountability of coaching. By combining health-coaching sessions with these treatments , we will significantly increase the efficacy and success to your goals to a healthier life!
“Working with Kit has helped me focus and prioritize on what is really important in my life. I have gone from “thinking” to “doing” and nothing feels better than that. A coaching session with Kit leaves me focused with a plan in hand on how to achieve my goals and build better habits. With her guidance and consistent follow up, I am finally making changes that stick! She really pushes you to be the best version of yourself.” ~ C.K.
“Kit is a wonderful coach. She is infinitely patient, positive, and non-judgemental. She has the gift of healing and listening. I don’t think I could have become aware of many issues in my life and the desire to make positive changes without her guidance.” ~ E.W.
