What is a Health Coach?

A Health Coach is a guide and supportive mentor who empower clients to take responsibility for their health and cultivate positive lifestyle choices. As the healthcare system advances, the Health Coach title is gaining increasing recognition by the public, the media, and the world of health and wellness.

Health Coaches support clients to implement and sustain lifestyle changes that contribute to the achievement of their personal wellness goals. Some common areas where a Health Coach may help a client include weight management, understanding food cravings, improving personal relationships, learning about new foods, increasing energy and reducing mental fog, improving sleep quality, stress management, and exploring self-sabotaging habits, just to name a few.

While the role of a physician to a patient tends to be authoritative, the role of a Health Coach is a motivating, ongoing ally to his or her clients. A Health Coach does not take the place of any medical practitioner; rather, he/she serves as the missing link – the patient guide – that helps develop strategies to enact real, lasting lifestyle changes. A Health Coach does not diagnose, treat, or take responsibility for bringing about wellness changes in a client’s life; rather, he/she guides and supports client-driven wellness goals.

Health Coaches work in many settings and can provide general wellness and nutrition information, options, recommendations, guidance, and motivation to assist clients in establishing healthier lifestyle routines. With a strong focus on behavioral choices along with the basic understanding of dietary patterns and overall health, Health Coaches fulfill an important and distinct role that compliments the roles of health professionals.
