Why you want a health & wellbeing coach

 

It takes Guts to make life changes. If you are ready to prioritise your health and wellbeing, but need help bridging the gap between thinking about it and 'doing' it, then working with a coach may be the key to helping you to take control and changing old behaviours.

A TRANSFORMATIONAL JOURNEY

Eating great food. Having more energy. Reaching and maintaining your ideal weight. Feeling happier and healthier. This is all possible.

I believe that much of what we do on a daily basis, and how we eat is habit-based - simply learned behaviour that has become ingrained over time. Habits are the little things we do everyday which become our systems for living, the sum of which determine our quality of life. 

The good news is habits can be re-wired. It is widely recognised that we require three weeks to break a habit, six weeks to build a new habit, and 36 weeks to embed a lifestyle change, so that it becomes second nature. 

I believe the most effective way to change a person's life is to change their habits, and then to lock-in and protect those habits. So I work with my clients in a coaching capacity drawing on NLP, CNT and ACT techniques, and integrate this with my nutritional therapy guidance. 

As your coach, I provide you with a space for 'self-care', in which you are listened to intently, understood, supportively challenged and held accountable through an empowering transformation process.

A health & WELLBEING coach helps you MANAGE YOUR MIND

Any change that happens in the body, happens in the mind first. My role is to help you create change with the most powerful tool you have: your mind.

You may not realise it yet, but we all have the ability to listen our own thoughts and decide whether they are actually working for us or not. Why is it important to choose what we think? Because our thoughts (all 60,000 per day) about the events, facts or circumstances in our life create running stories in our heads, which tend to spur our feelings, drive the actions we take, which in turn determine our ultimate outcomes in life and health.

Many people try to spark changes by changing the actions they take.  For example, if the goal is to lose weight, a common action is to jump into a quick-fix faddy diet, or exercise hard for a short time, or both. Those actions may drive an outcome - but what people may not have acknowledged is the harboured thoughts and beliefs which led them to overeat or make poor choices around food to begin with. 

Understanding your mind enables you to rewrite the language around thoughts and beliefs and transform them into positive, motivating stories which support enduring diet and lifestyle change.

CREATING CLARITY AND CONFIDENCE

I will help you:

  • Crystallise a clear, inspiring vision for your success and distil your personal health goals
  • Discover what really motivates you and what values you herald as most important in your life
  • Set manageable, meaningful weekly intentions and enter a 'resourceful state of being' whereby you feel empowered and inspired to take action
  • Identify and find solutions to any personal challenges that may have previously held you back from achieving what you want or kept you stuck in repeating patterns and unhealthy lifestyle habits 
  • Transform negative beliefs that have impacted your sense of self-worth or relationship with food

YOUR RESULTS

By developing your confidence, commitment and motivation, you will achieve - and critically maintain - the results you desire and deserve. 

Health & wellbeing coaching is a 'whole-life' process and results may extend beyond your health. When life is working well for my clients and they have a positive mindset, they can achieve any goal they take on.
