Q: What is Online
A: Online Wellness
Coaching is a one-on-one collaborative conversation with a wellness coach, who
will partner with you to help you achieve desired health changes.
Q: What happens at a Wellness
A: Every session is
different, but the goal of the sessions is to have a conversation in order to
identify your health needs. We try to get to know you and your motivations
behind your health behavior change and together we try to navigate a healthy
future path that fits your needs. The conversation can include a
variety of health-related topics, including exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress,
life satisfaction, healthy behaviors that can lead to weight management, and
Q: What to expect from your
A: Every session is
different, but most will follow this basic format:
Each session we will ask you to take a minute to fill out a
survey to assess the reason that you chose to come in for a Wellness Coaching

Q: What can a Wellness
Coach help with?
A: Wellness Coaching
encompasses every area of health. Some of the possible behavior changes that
could interest someone who has decided to work with a Wellness Coach are a
balanced lifestyle, healthy eating, making exercise a priority, weight
management, stress, sleep, time management, and so many more. Every goal looks
different to every individual. A Wellness Coach is there to have the
conversation that you want to have about health, whatever the subject may be.
Q: What is coaching
A: Although Wellness
Coaches are able to discuss just about every topic related to your needs, there
are times that your needs may be outside of the scope of a Wellness Coach - in
that case we may refer you to another qualified professional who can better
serve your needs.
Q: What do I need to
do to prepare?
A: The only thing that
you really need to be prepared with is your perspective on your health
goals. Wellness Coaching will allow you to have the conversation to
figure out the path you should take.
Q: Who needs a Wellness
A: Everyone, no matter
their current health status, has the desire to feel happy with their body, to
have the energy to perform daily tasks and hobbies, and to enjoy an overall
feeling of well-being and happiness. Having a partner on the journey to being
healthy and well can provide a system of support and advice where needed.
Q: How many sessions
A: Everyone is
different. At least one follow-up is suggested from the perspective of
goal-setting. For some individuals, a series of sessions is helpful to work on
their health goals.
