What is a Holistic Health Coach?
Whether you want to lose weight, gain weight or generally feel happier and healthier within yourself, Health Coaches take a holistic view of your life to get you results.
When we view health as a balance of mental and physical qualities, we learn to nourish our bodies from the inside out.
Many people are often surprised at the life transformation that also happens when working with a health coach but really this is a natural progression.
How we view ourselves is closely linked to our body image, self-esteem, thoughts and beliefs. If we think poorly of ourselves or don’t prioritise our health, we’re likely to give up when the going gets tough, which in turn deepens our subconscious spiral of negative thoughts and self-image.
Health Coaching helps you to gain perspective, appreciating your body for all that it does while teaching you to be kind to yourself. This enables you to identify and overcome the obstacles that are holding you back from achieving your true potential in other areas of your life.
It requires dedication, action, self-reflection and the will to adopt lifestyle changes, but the results are literally life-changing.
There is a reason that most diets don't work and fitness plans fail - they only focus on one specific area, which often doesn’t account for the bigger picture.
The problem is, personal trainers give you exercises without looking at what you’re eating. And weight loss programmes place all the emphasis on restricting and counting your calories. Either rarely helps you to identify and overcome habits, beliefs or barriers; the exact thing you actually need to get results and make them last.
But when you do approach it in this way, well, that’s when the transformation happens.
Holistic Health Coaches view health as a lifestyle; providing tailored nutritional advice and fitness plans that consider your whole body, beliefs and lifestyle. Focussing on health behaviour changes, Holistic Health Coaching helps you align your body, mind and soul to make positive, lasting changes that ripple out into all other areas of your life, making you feel happier, healthier and worthier.
Why Hire a Health Coach?
Are Health Coaches Qualified?
It is important to note that Health Coaches do not replace doctors and that the industry somehow also remains unregulated, so it’s important to do your research and feel comfortable with the Coach you choose.
I, myself, am a qualified Nutritional Advisor and Fitness Instructor, with 15 years’ experience in personal self-help and mindset work. You can get to know me here.
I currently offer my clients Nutrition Consultations and appointments to understand their eating habits, educating them so they can make the best choices to nourish their body and make healthy intuitive eating a lifestyle. I also ran in-person Wellness Workout classes before the pandemic, and have several health workshops and digital courses set to launch in 2021.
If you have any questions in the meantime, I’d love to be able to help. Get in touch here.
