A great coach is a good listener and enjoys your stories.

A traditional nurse, counselor, or therapist is an expert who prescribes treatment. When you’re working with a coach, YOU are the expert.

Eating habits and general nutrition, finances and budgeting, stress, physical activity and exercise, sleep and relaxation, cholesterol reduction, weight management, work-life balance, relationships, career direction, leadership skills, personal abilities and challenges, and a sense of life satisfaction are all areas that can be discussed with a coach. You choose the focus of your time with your coach to improve your health and wellbeing. Remember, you’re in control!
