According to Duke University’s Integrative Medicine department, “Integrative Health Coaching empowers clients to make lasting health behavior changes that are the cornerstones of lifelong well-being. It bridges the gap between medical recommendations and patients’ abilities to successfully implement those recommendations into their complex lives.”
As a health coach, my goal is to help you achieve balance and well being by aligning the various influences in your life that affect your personal health. A holistic coaching approach will take into account your unique physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and environmental influences, with an emphasis on integrating healthy nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle habits.
It takes consistent coaching to change health, habits, and lifestyles. That's why at Health Talk, I use several platforms to help you achieve your self-defined wellness goals. These include defining your Health Talk Vision, setting SMART goals, identifying deleterious behavior and dietary patterns, discovering personal, exercising personal responsibility, and integrating a Primal Lifestyle.
Educate & Equip
During our sessions, we will use your HEALTH TALK VISION to work through the Three Health Talk Pillars: Nutrition, Exercise & Lifestyle. These pillars will equip, encourage & guide you throughout your journey.
TOPICS OF DISCUSSION may include meal and activity planning, improving your physical environment, increasing activity level, managing & minimizing stress, obtaining optimal sleep, navigating obstacles & roadblocks, implementing mindfulness, and maintaining optimal nutrition.
CLIENT RESOURCES include primal-friendly recipes & meal plans, a pantry clean-out & restock, grocery shopping trip, cooking tips & videos, and other educational resources. Planning, organization, & accountability, as well as non-judgmental support, will help propel you towards your goals.
My overall goal is to MOTIVATE you to achieve your nutritional and health goals, to EQUIP you with the tools to so successfully and safely, to ESTABLISH personal confidence, and to INSPIRE lasting change for your continued success.
