WHAT IS AN INTEGRATIVE HEALTH COACH?
A good diet can help build the foundation for wellness but it is not the only factor. In fact, the actual food we put in our body is secondary to the “primary food” we consume daily in our lives. Primary foods are our career, spiritual practice, relationships, and physical activity. The term “integrative” is used to identify both primary and secondary foods in treating your overall health goals. When using this approach, I will be guiding you and helping to treat your whole self in a way that is sustainable for a healthy lifestyle and future.
HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
I have a holistic approach in that I encourage treating the whole person with regards to health and wellness. We are what we eat. We fuel our bodies with food every day and that “food” comes in the form of what we put inside our mouth and also our general environment. Together we will look both at your primary and secondary food to begin your healing process and get you on a path to total body wellness. I have been trained in and exposed to over 100 dietary theories. This knowledge is important because no two people are the same. What works for one client will not always work for another.
Research continues to support the use of lifestyle change involving exercise, spiritual practice, diet, and behavioral changes to treat conditions such as chronic stress, weight loss, arthritis and many other conditions. As your Integrative Health Coach, I will guide you to examine all areas of your life where nutrition and overall wellness is concerned.
HOW DO I KNOW WHICH COACHING FORMAT IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Based upon the intake form you will submit, I will assess your needs and discuss them further in the initial consultation. We will agree upon the format and length needed to accomplish your goals.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
Again, this is dependent upon your particular goals and how far along you may already be in working towards them. Some clients have started on their path when we first talk and our work together is focused more on accountability. Others may be starting from scratch and have a longer road to reach their end-goal. We will discuss all of this after your intake form assessment.
HOW LONG ARE ONE-ON-ONE SESSIONS?
Each session lasts one hour and are preferably held in an online format (video/Skype).
HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?
I will send you an invoice prior to your first session. All payments must be made prior to the first session.
WHAT IF I DON'T SEE A PROGRAM THAT FITS WITH MY SPECIFIC NEEDS?
You can always contact me via email or phone to discuss what you're looking for. If it's a good fit, I will gladly discuss additional options.
