What is Health Coaching ?
While the other practitioners at GHHC will look at your health history and lab work and make lifestyle recommendations for conquering your health challenges, the health coach will help you implement these changes in your daily life. In your sessions, the health coach will listen attentively, non-judgmentally and empathetically. Together you will draw upon your strengths, define the obstacles, and implement a plan to move forward in reaching your goals. The health coach is your guide, mentor and accountability partner.
In line with GHHC’s philosophy, the health coach looks at the whole person, instead of just at specific symptoms. For example, for someone needing to lose weight - it’s more than just what you put into your mouth and how much exercise you get. There are also other factors - such as stress, relationships, mindset and self image - that affect the chances of success.
A health coach will help you take a look at all factors relating to the changes you wish to make and help you identify the obstacles that are standing in the way. A health coach believes in your innate ability to solve your own problems, and will guide and support you along the way.

The National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching, the governing body for health coaches in the United States, defines health coaching as:
“Health and Wellness Coaches partner with clients seeking self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values, which promote health and wellness and, thereby, enhance well-being. In the course of their work health and wellness coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, and honoring that each client is an expert on his or her life, while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.” (https://nbhwc.org/nb-hwc/)
