A health coach is a supportive mentor who motivates individuals to practice wellness and making positive health choices; Health coaches bridges the gap and educate clients to achieve their health goals through lifestyle and behavior transformation.
Many health and wellness coaches in private practices are highly trained health care professionals, who offer services and fill gaps between physicians and patients, also bring in nutrition, fitness, mindset and behavioral transformation for achieving personal optimal health/wellness goals.They are mentors, educators, and advocates to foster health behavior and provide support for healthy life style.
It’s also important to set up clear role expectations - knowing that a health coach is not as a Doctor, who prescribes medical treatment, or a nurse, who takes care of you. A health coach will not replace the role of other health professionals, such as dietitian, personal trainer, therapist, etc. A health coach is your trusted ally by your side, works with you to overcome challenges, taking care of yourself, and achieve your personal best well-being.Of note, health coaches may have his/her background in Nursing, fitness/ personal training, nutrition/dietitian, or other therapeutics. Their knowledge from the professional background will benefit you. However, in health coaching practice, the traditional occupational role models should not be expected.
