It’s true! It’s go time!
I have now completed six months of my coach training program so I am ready to start small and start building up my practice. For now, I will be available on Fridays for initial consults and coaching sessions, which can be conducted in person for you local folks, or by phone, Skype or FaceTime for anyone outside of the greater Sacramento area.
So what would it be like to work with me?
The initial consultation takes about 50 minutes to an hour and includes getting a health history where we’ll discuss your health goals, a bit of your history, and your current nutrition and fitness plan. This is a great way to determine if we’re a good fit to work together and to identify a few areas of focus. Health and wellness can be within your reach with some gradual changes. Should you decide to work with me, we’ll create a customized program to focus on helping you refine and achieve your personal health goals.
You’ll get 2 coaching sessions per month, either in person or by phone, FaceTime or Skype. We will customize an approach based on goals that we set together. Local clients can go on field trips to farmers’ markets and their regular grocery store to get some tips on healthy, balanced, and whole food eating. You’ll also get handouts, recipes, meal prep tips and newsletter articles tailored to your needs. What I really offer is a holistic approach to creating a more balanced life, both on and off the plate.
Why do I need a health coach?
To be honest, not everyone does. Some people have worked to achieve the right balance of nutrition and lifestyle, physical activity and career, relationships and body/mind connectivity. I can tell you that I’ve been working at this a long time, yet I still have a core group of supporters that help me stay on track and focused on my goals. I even have my own accountability coach I have been working with through my training to help me hone my coaching skills and strategize my practice.
You need a health coach to help stimulate some ideas about how to get out of a rut, how to figure out where to start, and how to make the changes you already know you need to make — and make them sustainable over time. It’s not for everyone, but if you’re really ready to dig deep and mix things up, it might be for you.
