How Can A Health Coach Help Me?

When was the last time you visited you primary care physician? Did they provide you with some recommendations, to eat better, or to lose some weight?

When was the last time you visited you primary care physician?
Did they provide you with some recommendations, to eat better, or to
lose some weight? Then I'll bet they sat down with you for about 40 or 50 minutes,
explaining to you just how you should execute their recommendation,
right? If your doctor didn't explain what you should eat, how to prepare
it, what exercises you should perform, or basically provide with a
blueprint for success, you're not alone. If your doctor spent 15 minutes
with you, that is about the average time you'll get before they shake
your hand and scurry off to the next patient. If you physician
recommended you to a health coach they are partnered with, then your
doctor is on the cutting edge of a new wave in healthcare.

Health
coaches are one of the fastest growing segments in the Health and
Wellness industry today. They carve out niches ranging from emotional
eating to single moms, who don't have time to cook. Health coaches
provide patients/clients a sounding board for their issues and a
platform to express their personal health goals and intentions, that
normally are not found in most doctor's practices.

The
relationship between a client and a health coach normally begins with a
health history. The health history is confidential and provides the
coach with basic information about the client. A typical health history
will include personal, social, health, medical, and food information. If
the client fills out the health history form beforehand, the health
coach can review it before the session begins, but it can also be filled
out during the session. Either way works well for most coaches.

The health history session will normally last around 40-50 minutes.
It is sometimes referred to as an initial breakthrough or discovery
session because the client has an opportunity talk about themselves.
This helps to build a relationship between the client and health coach.
When this happens, clients end up providing a wealth of information not
only to the coach, but to themselves. The coaches job here is not to
just provide detailed recommendations, but to perhaps understand the
root causes of the issue the doctor is treating, i.e. food allergies, or
sugar addiction. Armed with this knowledge, both the client and coach
can begin to set 1-month, 3-month, and 6-month goals.

It is up to
the client as to whether or not they will work the coach. If they decide
to work with the health coach, they will most likely meet every other
week for 6 months. In between sessions, the client can email or call the
coach, depending on their agreement, to ask questions and obtain
clarity on the coaches recommendations. The coach will provide the
client with session notes, CDs/DVDs, food samples, and handouts. Also
some coaches will send the client's doctor a progress report on a
monthly basis.

Patients find that when they have achievable goals
and a plan, recommendations to lose weight, lower their blood glucose,
or blood pressure can be accomplished with the help, support and
assistance of a health coach. So, can a health coach help you? The next
time your doctor makes some recommendations that you're not quite sure
how to execute, ask them do they partner with a health coach, and find
out for yourself.
