Health Coaching helps you achieve the best health possible
Most healthcare services fall short on providing the support patients need to follow their treatment plan after they leave the clinic. This grossly impacts the likelihood of success, and is why so many people see little improvement in their health.
In a typical setting, you'll see a practitioner, then be left to your own devices to take action on your treatment plan in between sessions. This means that as soon as you leave the clinic, you feel overwhelmed with the changes you need to make, and may have already forgotten some!
Even with the best of attempts, you'll likely encounter obstacles that, without any support or guidance, will cause you to give up not long after you've barely started.
Health Coaching fills this gap so you get results and be the healthiest you can be.
Your health coach is there to support you the whole way along. After each consultation with your Functional Medicine practitioner, your health coach will be there to answer any questions, ensuring you can implement your plan with clarity and ease.
Your coach will then help you with all the facets of your treatment plan - whether that's to show you how to eat gluten-free, incorporate movement into your day, create a sleep routine, overcome mindset blocks or manage stress better. Whatever is needed to help you get results.
Health Coaching will maximise your results
Whether you're experiencing health issues of a chronic/complex nature, or your focus is on optimising your health, a team approach with a Functional Medicine practitioner and a Health Coach has been proven to deliver the best results.
Initial enthusiasm with a tendency to ‘give up’ after 2-3 weeks
Short-lived attempts because of a change in symptoms, obstacles, or not knowing how to implement changes
Coming back to see your practitioner with limited progress as you forgot to do tests or didn’t know how to do them, or stopped taking supplements because you ran out, had a reaction or the dose wasn't working
Reaching out to your practitioner with questions but not hearing back from them (they’re too busy!)
Feeling uninspired and reliant on others to help you
Overwhelm, confusion, and frustration
Limited health outcomes and money wasted
Barriers identified and strategies created to stay on track
All questions answered - how to manage symptom changes, supplement adjustments, food options for diet changes
Reporting back to your practitioner with progress so sessions are spent on going forward vs going over what wasn’t done
A sense of having people on your team who care and ‘have your back’
Communicating with your practitioner through your health coach so you're always making informed decisions
Feeling empowered by having your health back in your hands
Motivation, clarity, and ease
Greater health outcomes and money well spent
Health Coaching gives you all the support and guidance you need to be your healthiest self
Your health coach's main aim is to optimise your health, which starts with moving from focusing on not being sick to being truly well. Your health coach will give you all the support, tools, resources and insights you need to achieve your health goals. And of course, celebrate your wins with you!
Highly personalised care
Like with Functional Medicine, Health Coaching takes a patient-centred, personalised approach to achieve the best results for each individual. The role of your coach is to help you understand your body (and what to do with it) and enable and empower you to make your best decisions for your health and lifestyle.
Improving patient outcomes
Your health coach works closely with your practitioner to ensure you have the best possible health plan to get you the best results. The regular contact you'll have with your health coach can reveal insights that inform and evolve the treatment plan your practitioner has created for you.
