What is health coaching?

Health coaching is being supported by a health professional (known as health coach) to achieve the goals you choose.
On your calls, your health coach will help you focus on making one small improvement at a time. Your coach will give you information, help you set a plan that will work for your lifestyle and follow up to keep you on track.
Your health coach knows that starting change can be hard.
It is normal to have setbacks along the way - just like learning to ride a bike, you never just get on and start riding! It takes practice and persistence. Your health coach will help you stay on track and keep you motivated as you work towards your goals.

 

What’s involved?

• You will work alongside a health coach to achieve your healthy lifestyle goals
• Your health coach will guide, motivate and support you – think of them as your health best friend, always there to give you some motivation!
• You can receive up to 13 phone calls at times that suits you – you choose the time and place
• Your health coach will provide you with information and booklets (via mail or email – you decide)
• Need more support? You can re-enrol at any time for free and keep working with your health coach.
• After you complete your coaching, you can choose to receive SMS support from your coach to stay on track with your goals.
