Health Coach

What is a Health Coach? The terms Health Coach, Personal Coach or Life Coach are often used interchangeably. Health coaching is based on a relationship between the client and the coach, with an explicit goal to motivate you to set and attain the goals that you have for the health of your body, as well as your professional and personal goals. This will include obtaining and maintaining your ideal weight, be free of addictive behaviors, and have balance in your life between work and play. As your coach, we will set the professional objectives that you may have, as well as the vision that you have for your personal life. The coach provides support, guidance and advise, so you can learn to express positive and loving attitude towards yourself and others. As your coach, I will teach you the steps, to be a more confident individual with positive self-esteem and self-worth, which are essential to productivity. You will also learn self-hypnosis, so you can utilize your inner resources and your creativity, to actualize the dreams that you have for your life. As a health coach, I can work with clients via telephone and or Skype.
