Integrative Health Coaching is not just about physical well-being, it is also about the client as a whole person: values, goals, work, balance, fulfillment and life purpose. Through the coaching process, clients typically reach various goals, improve their performance and enhance their quality of life. Techniques such as, reporting, exploring and a consistent commitment to action, are used to help the client move forward. This proactive working relationship will accelerate progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice.
The client is the ultimate owner of her life and her health. Being in the driver’s seat requires a good map. It is important to know the starting point and destination. This means the client knowing what her health is like now and what she would like her health to be going forward. This may be a new way to think about one's health. Many of us are used to thinking about our health only when we are sick. Whole person health and well-being mean the client realizes what her life goals are and what contributes to her sense of wellness over time.
