WHAT IS A HEALTH COACH?
“A Health Coach is a wellness authority and supportive mentor who motivates individuals to cultivate positive health choices. Health Coaches educate and support clients to achieve their health goals through lifestyle and behavior adjustments. “ –Integrative Institute of Nutrition
The fact that you are looking at this website right now is enough for me to know that you need some help getting healthy. We all want to look and feel amazing yet we don’t always prioritize ourselves or know how to break our bad habits, sometimes we even get used to feeling like crap. We can get really swept up in the hamster wheel that is modern life and get run down, forget about fun and even end up developing conditions or illness along the way. It happens to everyone.
So how do I help you? I become your cheerleader, your teacher, and occasional betch slapper/ass kicker. You set your goals in the area of health, money, relationships or creativity or perhaps, all of the above. I support you in the journey to meeting those fabulous goals. I don’t do it for you; I am on the sidelines. Like a professional coach of a sports team, I give you the plays but you make the lifestyle changes. I help you--help yourself. Some of you will shed pounds, others will shed problems and some of you will shed both.
Most of my health idols and greatest teachers are Doctors. However, Doctors today are some of the most overworked people spending 12 minutes on average with patients and seeing 30-50 patients a day. We don’t have a lot of health care management right now; we seem to have disease management. Most health issues are created by diet and lifestyle but can be changed with diet and lifestyle; which is where a Health Coach comes in.
You have someone to fix your car and do your taxes why not have someone show you how to improve your health. Nothing we dream of is impossible IF we have our health. -Galadriel Masterson, Certified Health and Lifestyle Coach.
