As a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I’m very passionate about what I do. But not a lot of people understand the value of a health coach and how we help change behaviors and lives. You can only imagine how excited I got when this NY Times article appeared in my news feed. Finally!! Health coaching is starting to get the recognition it deserves.
Doctors in our healthcare system today have very little time with their patients and often send them home with orders to lose weight or exercise more. As a patient, you may be thinking, “Great advice. But how? Where do I start?” Most of us know what to do. It’s the implementation where we get stuck. That’s where a health coach can come in handy. While you are the expert on your own body, we can help tease out your goals and figure out the best approach for you. And while the NY Times article mostly discusses the healthcare system and how health coaches are helping to change it for the better, health coaches are available in other ways too. In fact, we may just help prevent a visit to the doctor!
At EMP180°, we pride ourselves on our coaching and believe it is the number one reason our clients are so successful in our program and in maintenance. Our coaches are friendly, knowledgeable, and empathetic, and strive to provide an environment where our clients feel comfortable and supported. Here are a few other important roles our health coaches play:
Health coaches fill an important gap in our healthcare system. They help people make the changes prescribed by their doctors, such as diet and exercise, that will have the greatest impact on their health.
An accountability partner who can help you break down big goals into small, manageable steps.
Goal setters to help our clients create attainable goals and develop a plan that’s easy and accessible to implement.
Teachers to help interpret “doctor’s orders” and explain the “WHY” behind our recommendations.
Health coaches are your biggest supporters. They help you navigate challenges and celebrate your successes. They keep you motivated.
