What is health and wellness coaching?
We all experience mountains and valleys, ups and downs, over the course of our lives. What’s your plan to climb your next mountain?
Health and wellness coaches empower you to take control of your life. Health and wellness focus areas include not only nutrition and movement, but also sleep, relaxation, social connection, work, spirituality, lifetime learning, and joy. These holistic areas form the basis of the Georgetown University cura personalis model, or treatment of the whole person. The coach’s job is to build a safe, non-judgmental space where the client can explore ways to move forward and establish sustained lifelong healthy changes.
