Certified health coaches offer many of the same services as wellness coaches, but health coaches have additional training in one or more specific fields of health. For example, a health coach could be a nurse, dietitian, exercise physiologist, physiotherapist, naturopath, osteopath, or have another health-related occupation or certification.
When you work with a health coach, you’ll address specific issues such as healthy eating and nutrition or chronic problems such as managing diabetes, asthma, hypertension, or chronic pain. Your health coach will provide education and support so you can make lifestyle and behavior changes that will lead you to improved wellbeing and happiness.
A health coach can help you address concerns in many areas, including:
- Heart health management (blood pressure, cholesterol)
- Diabetes management (GI, A1C, medication)
- Chronic disease management
- Understanding medication
- Healthy eating and nutrition
- Stress management
- Weight loss
All health coaches who work with Wellbeing Coaches have professional qualifications in an allied health profession and are certified by a major university or one of the top coaching schools in the United States such as the Institute to Integrative Nutrition, the Mayo Clinic, Wellcoaches, the American College of Sports Medicine, The Cooper Institute, the National Academy of Sports Medicine, or the American Fitness Professional Trainers.
If you need help managing a condition or illness that is keeping you from achieving optimal health, a health coach’s knowledge and unconditional support can help.
