Wellness Coaching For Lasting Lifestyle Change shows coaches and wellness professionals how to work with their clients to help them find the motivation and achieve actual behavioral change in their lifestyle. Many in the wellness field report frustration with their efforts to help people live more wellness oriented lifestyles. We hear over and over, “I tell them what they need to do, and they don’t do it!” or “We do great programs in health promotion and have great facilities available yet many of those who really need to change never do.” Many of us have been asked to work individually with folks in need of change, but the same methodology that fails with a group fails with individuals as well.
This is where Wellness Coaching for Lasting Lifestyle Change comes in. This resource helps wellness professionals learn the coaching skills necessary to effectively work one-on-one with individuals, even if only for fifteen minutes at a time. The positive connection between the coach and the person who wants to make a change empowers the individual to recognize and draw on his or her own abilities and resources to make lasting changes for better health. Wellness Coaching For Lasting Lifestyle Change is the guide you need to make that connection to your clients.
