Health & Well-Being Coaching
You Don't Have To Be Perfect To Feel Good.
There's plenty of buzz about health coaching out there right now, which is probably why you're here!
So, What is Health Coaching?
A Health Coach is a supportive mentor and wellness expert who helps you feel your best through individualized food and lifestyle changes that meet your unique needs and health goals. As your Health Coach, my primary goal is to guide you to reach your health and wellness goals, such as sleeping better, boosting energy, weight loss, stress management, and so much more. I'm committed to creating a safe space for you to explore your health, facilitating behavior and lifestyle changes that you can sustain for the long term.
I use my extensive nutrition and coaching knowledge to help you discover which foods and lifestyle choices help you feel best. Most importantly, I take a holistic approach to health, focusing on food and other areas of life that can support and nourish your overall health, such as career, spirituality, relationships, and the environment I call "primary foods."
Health coaching can be used with clients one-on-one or in group settings, or alongside other healthcare professionals such as medical doctors, chiropractors, therapists, and nurses. As a result, health coaches play a pivotal role in the greater healthcare team, filling the void often left by doctors who don't necessarily have time to provide nutrition and coaching guidance.
Health coaching isn't about one diet or one way of living. Instead, we will focus on bio-individuality – the idea that we're all different and have unique dietary, lifestyle, emotional, and physical needs. This means that I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to health and wellness.
Instead, I will work with you to help you discover how to fuel your body, live a healthy lifestyle, and become the healthiest, happiest version of yourself by finding exactly what works for you.
What Are Primary Foods?
When we think about wellness, it's often food or diet that first comes to mind. After all, what we eat plays a massive role in how we feel and how our bodies function.
At HVL Therapy & Coaching Center, we believe there is more to a healthy diet than just the food we put into our bodies. Simply changing your diet may not be enough to help you thrive if other areas of life are out of balance.
For example, you can eat brown rice and spinach every day and go to the gym every evening. Still, if you're stuck in an unfulfilling job or a toxic relationship, then you're just not going to feel truly healthy and happy on a deeper level.
That's why one of the core concepts we teach in our coaching sessions is called Primary Food, and it's not entirely as edible as it sounds!
The bottom line is: when you are nourished and happy in the ways that truly matter, food becomes secondary.
Here are some of the things we consider to be Primary Foods:
Regular physical movement
Meaningful positive relationships
Some form of spiritual connection (whatever that means for you)
Following your personal passions
Non-dietary forms of self-care
Playfulness, creativity, and fun
We believe these things are essential, don't you?
Our body & mind know how to heal.
