WHAT TRAINING HAVE YOU RECEIVED?
I have graduated from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, Inc. It is the only program that is established in collaboration with the Institute for Functional Medicine. I studied the basic principles of Functional Medicine, positive psychology, coaching skills, relaxation and stress reduction techniques, sleep issues and the Functional Medicine approach to nutrition and chronic disease. I have also completed a supervised 30 session practicum coaching clients.
I HAVE A DOCTOR, WHY DO I NEED A HEALTH COACH?
While many doctors try and give their patients individualized care, they simply do not have the time required to help you implement healthier habits. Health coaching bridges the gap between everyday life and office visits. Health coaches can dig deeper and spend the time with you so that you can achieve your wellness goals. Many time health coaches can work in conjunction with your doctor and work with you as a team.
IF I AM TOO BUSY TO HELP MYSELF – HOW WILL I HAVE TIME TO IMPLEMENT A COACH’S SUGGESTIONS?
I understand the pressures and time constraints that everyone (including myself) is under. I take a practical approach and look for ways for you to fit in health improvements into your life. “Where there is a will there is a way” - It still takes a commitment between the client and the coach, but working together we can find a way to work within your schedule and responsibilities.
IS MEETING WITH A COACH OVER THE PHONE OR VIDEO CONFERENCE AS EFFECTIVE AS MEETING IN PERSON?
YES! There is research showing that effective coaching does not need to be face-to-face. Plus, it makes it more convenient and easier to schedule in the sessions into your busy life.
WHY DO I NEED TO PAY IN ADVANCE?
Coaching outcomes are typically better when sessions are paid for in advance. By doing so, you will be fully committed to reaching your goals.
DO YOU ACCEPT HEALTH INSURANCE FOR PAYMENT?
The short answer is “No”. Health insurance introduces lots of red tape and puts constraints on the length and type of care given, which is the exact opposite of what health coaches are trying to achieve.
