This role will also consist of being a health care advocate to help answer health care questions (although I do all these things, this is what will help you feel better-fast), and help direct insurance questions. We are highly motivated, energetic but caring, and have the desire to immerse ourself in the client's culture of wellness and support this culture. If this sounds of interest, and you are looking for techniques to feel better, this could be the action for you.
A Health Coach will work with motivational interviewing, goal setting, and find and solve barriers. We achieve behavior change in relation to stress, diet, exercise, weight management, and sleep, which will reduce risks and prevention of chronic conditions in the future. Health coaches understand how physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social wellbeing plays a role when it comes to behavior change.
