How does Health Coaching work?
The process of working with a health coach is to have an open dialogue with your Health Coach about your goals, lifestyle behaviors (current and past), obstacles and overall daily living activities. With each session, you will work toward breaking down what you can work on to achieve your goal(s) into very manageable changes from day to day. The main idea is to slowly incorporate these changes so that they become part of your daily living and continue building upon them. With this process, your relationship with your Health Coach will develop and foster as well.
