What is a Health Coach

Health coaches have the required knowledge, skills and tools to help individuals develop strategies for improving their overall health and wellbeing.


Instead of advocating for a one-size-fits-all idea of health and wellness, a health coach meets you to help you determine where you're at with your health goals. A good Health Coach collaborates with you to help you make changes that fit your life, so that you can achieve them to help make you better than before. They consider things like food choices and eating behaviour, exercise and movement, sleep, stress, self-care and self-management. 

Health Coaching is a way of helping people gain the knowledge, skills, tools and confidence they need to take an active part in their own health.
