What is a Wellness Coach?
- A Wellness Coach’s role is improving the quality of wellness, self confidence and ability to help you maintain an increased level of overall wellness.

- The coach will communicate with you attentively, expect you to set realistic goals, brainstorm solutions for obstacles, provide advice when asked, and be direct and firm with feedback.
- Coaching sessions (in person, video, telephonic, or messaging only) will allow you to set three-month and weekly goals, with check-ins between meetings when needed.Wellness Coaching is truly a unique relationship between the coach and client. When you start thinking critically about your own health, the road to wellness begins to make sense!
