In the world of health and wellness, a health coach is an emerging
new role. Health coaching is becoming recognized as a new way to
help individuals "manage" their illnesses and conditions. In both sports and health, a "coach" is a person who observes, gives objective feedback, teaches, helps to develop a plan of action and holds another responsible for their actions and commitments. The coach will use special techniques, personal experience, expertise and encouragement to assist the coachee in bringing his/her behavioral changes about.
Health coaching is a method of guiding another to "discover" and address their own ambivalence to health behavior change. Health coaching can assist someone to identify issues, beliefs, and
concerns that may hinder or support their lifestyle change or
responsibility for health that lies ahead for them. Like
traditional coaching, health coaches utilize goal setting, identification
of obstacles, and use of personal support systems. The relationship
between the coach and coachee is an accountability partnership focused on the overall health outcome goals as defined by
their healthcare practitioners and the coachee themselves.
Health coaching provides motivation, encouragement, and health
education in an atmosphere where full attention is given to the
coachee and where the way to self discovery is paved. Health
education is a part of the information that is shared with the coachee.
Health coaching guides people to talk about what is most troubling to them about their conditions, what they most want to change, what support they have to foster change, and what obstacles or difficulties must be removed or minimized to advance healthy behaviors. It is not the main role of the health coach to teach, advise or counsel the person. Health coaching focuses on the special issues and concerns unique to the individual that fit into the context of their life.
