What happens in your appointment with a Health Coach?
Your appointment usually lasts for 30 minutes and we ask questions to find out how we can help you achieve your lifestyles goals. You will be provided with the latest advice, guidance and support appropriate to your needs.
Health Coaches will work with you on your journey of change to help you stay motivated.
Your appointment will be one-to-one with a Health Coach in a relaxed environment at a variety of locations across Torbay. Each venue has a confidential room for your discussion with the Health Coach.
We are guided by you and the changes you want to make, supporting you to eat more healthily, be more active, reduce stress and feel more confident in leading a healthy lifestyle.
Support is matched to your level of need; we are flexible to each individual’s own goals and work with you to succeed.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit.”
Making changes is not easy but we support you to build new habits. Our Health Coaches have plenty of ideas and tools to help you.
Tools we use
- SMART goals and rewards
- Coaching support
- Partnerships with Gyms, Commercial Weight Management providers and other organisations
- Resources such as information booklets and leaflets
- Regular feedback
A typical journey
When making changes you will encounter obstacles but with our support you can find your own solutions. By developing strategies for change you will find solutions to put negative behaviours in the past. You hold the keys and you will unlock many resources to help overcome obstacles on your journey.
The rest is down to you, what will happen if you don’t make a change?
