Welcome

Welcome to Angie’s Health Coaching. I am so glad you found my site. You didn’t get here by accident. You have been examining your life and realize you need help making some lifestyle changes. Maybe your physical health is not what you would like to be. Or it may be your emotional or mental health or all three. Whatever your quest may be, I am here to help you. I am a health coach with eighteen years experience  as an occupational therapist. You can read more about me on my About Me page.

But first, let me explain to  you what a health coach is. When people hear the word coaching, they think of counseling, but health coaching is not counseling. There’s a difference between the two. Counseling advises you on how to deal with an issue in your life, what decisions to make and how to make them. Health coaching involves listening to the client and helping them make lifestyle changes that include physical activity, sensible eating habits and stress reduction.

Coaching goes beneath the surface to assess the needs, desires and goals of the individual. For example, when a client says, “I want to lose 20 pounds,” a counselor may say let’s do this or that, but a  good health coach will try to find out what is the motivation behind the goal. Is it just to look better, or is it because heart disease runs in his family and he is afraid that he might develop the disease? This allows the coach to delve further into the lifestyle habits of the client so as to better assist him to achieve his goals.

So, are you ready to embark on a journey that will change your life forever? If so, use the contact form to arrange for a free consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
