Coaching encourages looking at things from a different perspective, which can be eye-opening, refreshing, and empowering. It’s also complimentary for patients at Vivacity Care Center.
After meeting with your healthcare provider, you can choose to talk to a coach about any goals you would like to achieve--or even goals you are simply considering. Sessions might be in person or by phone and are always a compassionate place to explore new behaviors.
Common areas include but aren’t limited to:
You are always in charge of the plan from what you want to work on to how often you meet. Think of it as if you are flying the plane and your coach is the co-pilot.
A health coach doesn’t replace anyone else on your care team. They don’t give medical advice or prescribe nutrition or exercise plans. A coach’s area of expertise is facilitating behavior change.
Your coach will encourage you to set big goals, but you aren’t expected to meet these goals in one session. You and your coach will break that big goal down into smaller goals for each session.
There’s never any pressure to talk to a health coach. But if you ever want to give it a try, it’s just a conversation and it’s always available at no charge
