There is so much more to health than diet and exercise.
Holistic health acknowledges not only physical, but also emotional, mental, spiritual, social and environmental aspects of healthy living.
So, what is health coaching, anyway?
Health coaching helps you identify how to live life to the fullest, as only you can. Health coaching acknowledges that you are a unique individual with unique health concerns. As a coach, I partner with you to identify concrete goals and then work with you to create a specialized action plan in order to achieve those goals.
What is health coaching for people in addiction recovery?
I help people in addiction recovery optimize their health and thrive in sobriety. This means that I acknowledge the additional complexities of living life after suffering the trauma of addiction.
Enter: My holistic health approach.
When you work with me, you won’t be receiving “one size fits all” coaching; you will be treated as the individual you are. Just as everyone has a different experience coming into sobriety after addiction, everyone has different experiences prioritizing themselves after living a less than ideal lifestyle. Additionally, those living a sober lifestyle looking to take their health to the next level have differing reasons for doing so. That’s okay. However, I know it can be confusing and feel isolating. You don’t have to do this alone – I’m here to help.
What are some common health concerns in addiction recovery?
You may wonder:
When will my appetite return to “normal”? What is going on with my metabolism?
How can I heal my body, mind and spirit after surviving the trauma of addiction?
How do I work through intrusive thoughts in order to shed the shame associated with addiction?
What can prayer and/or meditation do to improve my personal wellness?
What is sleep hygiene and how could it help me?
What does having a robust spiritual practice mean to me?
What does ‘self-care’ mean to me, and how can I live it everyday?
What types of physical movement do I enjoy?
What could physical fitness do to improve my emotional and mental health?
How can I honor the spectrum of my emotions without being unhappy all the time?
Health coaching addresses all these questions and more.
Through the coaching process, you will gain a concrete understanding of your life priorities specifically as they pertain to your personal health and wellness goals.
