Wellness coaching is an emerging profession, expected only to see a surge in demand in the current world climate. But what is a wellness coach exactly, and why do we need one?
When people need an extra push to achieve their fitness goals, they immediately think of personal training. But when it comes to wellness, we seem to think we should be able to do it all ourselves. We know what to do: eat healthily, exercise, get enough sleep, cut down on junk food... So why don’t we do it? That’s where a wellness coach comes in.
Booking a weekly session with a wellness coach keeps you accountable, in the same way a personal trainer does. A wellness coach's approach will be very practical, action-oriented and founded on scientific research and evidence.
Making a commitment to focus on your overall health and wellbeing is the first step to achieving wellness. Setting aside time every week to think about your wellbeing, what you want to achieve and plan how you’re going to get there is an important part of reaching your wellness goals.
A wellness coach will know what questions to ask to motivate you in the pursuit of your goals. She’ll find out what’s blocking you and what could help you. She’ll use techniques, tools and frameworks to keep you on track. She’ll have tips and suggestions that you can integrate into your life, helping you form healthy habits that stay with you.
There are many reasons someone could benefit from a wellness coach. You may have trouble managing stress, you’re exhausted all of the time, or your lust for life has gone AWOL. A wellness coach can help to find the root cause of the problem, with the aim of resolving the issue naturally, in a preventative and complementary way.
Some of you might have a clear wellness goal, for example, to lose weight, eat a more nutritious diet, or start a selfcare practice. Having a weekly meeting with a wellness coach can help to keep you on track to reach your goals.
