Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Health Coach?
A Health Coach empowers you to access your truth regarding food, health and your body in a non-judgmental, informative and supportive process. I help you cut through the surplus of information and overwhelm regarding wellness, and find out what works for YOUR body to regain energy, lose weight, and avoid chronic diseases with proven research methods and activities to make new habits stick.
How does coaching work?
What is the difference between a Health Coach and a Life Coach?
How you do ONE thing, is how you do EVERY thing.
What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
Therapy is designed to help you heal when you want to “feel better.” A therapist is a licensed professional with an educational degree. A therapist or counselor often analyzes the past to find ways to help you understand your present behaviors or condition. They are qualified to provide mental health care and personal growth development and often accept medical insurance benefits. For more serious behaviors, a therapist can get you to the point to where a coach can then take over.
Both have areas that overlap and a good coach can often provide similar results that a therapist would, depending on your needs, and motivation to change. I think of a therapist the same way I would a Physician. I use a therapist for a limited time for a specific need that is overwhelming. Coaching can be used for either short or long-term assistance in determining your path in any specific realm.
When is a good time to seek a coach?
How did you decide on your Business Name?
I chose “Nourishment” because it’s a term that encompasses everything in the world of wellness and that’s what I do: I integrate nutrition, movement, sleep improvement, anxiety reduction, mindfulness, and self-care techniques to help you avoid chronic diseases and challenge you to discover new habits, foods, and lifestyle to strengthen your pursuit of health.
Networking is connecting; connecting people to new ideas, tools, foods, and recipes. Connecting people to other people, programs, and health-focused lifestyle organizations with ongoing support and accountability.
My business, Nourishment Network, helps people make the connection between their bodies, family, and community to make the world a healthier place. I network with other coaches and community partners to provide my clients with the best and most current wellness-related ideas and information.
