As many of you know we have a strong sense to keep on learning and improving our services. That’s why I’m proud to say I am now a Qualified Health & Wellness Coach. So why did I do this and why is it important to me and possibly you, or someone you know. Because I want our nation to be fit, healthy and happy.Our health matters and generally the health of Australians is to be frank, poor. We are fast becoming one of the most obese nations in the world, most people don’t eat healthy food and most don’t exercise and rising inflammatory diseases, diabetes, cancer and other diseases are still on the rise.
Many are happy to spend their money on processed foods or take out which contain sugars, bad fats and chemicals. We’ll take our cars instead of walking and don’t exercise enough – sorry, only walking is not enough. (I know if you are with us, this isn’t you, but are you exercising enough, once a week is not enough either). So getting off from my banter, here’s a little more…
Health and Wellness Coaching is a relatively new, but a rapidly developing discipline. A definition I like is that it is a client-centred, collaborative intervention whose primary aim is to support others in sustainable lifestyle changes. Or maybe put more simply – a Health & Wellbeing Coach supports you in changing unhealthy habits that aren’t serving you for positive healthy habits that will serve you for the longer term.
How does it work? The change/s you want to make are selected by YOU, the client, who is positioned as the expert in your own life, with the coach bringing skills and knowledge to support the process of change. Encompassing the science of positive psychology to develop a deeper understanding of possibilities and pathways to achieve your goals.
It’s often a journey of self discovery that ultimately leads you to setting your own goals, accepting a level of self-responsibility and experiencing positive self-determination. It truly works, I’ve now seen and experienced it many times!Some common areas that people focus on are fitness, nutrition, body weight management, stress and improving sleep. You maybe relatively “healthy” to begin with but not achieving what you want. Some other areas are cessation of smoking, alcohol cessation or reduction, reducing life’s clutter and improving stress levels by finding ways that work for you – as each of us is different.
If you have an area in your health and wellbeing that you’d like to change then this is where I maybe able to help you, a family member or friend.
