Commit to Working with a Wellness Coach

A wellness coach will help you determine the areas of your lifestyle, attitudes and behaviors that you are most motivated to change, help you create a wellness action plan to create the necessary change, and then motivate you and keep you accountable for reaching your goals of increased health and well-being.

Working with a wellness coach might very well be your first big step toward becoming healthier and feeling better. This may very well help you build the confidence that you need to make the changes in your lifestyle that you know need to happen in order to regain and maintain good health.

Wellness coaching has made great strides in the past few years and appears to be poised to play a prominent role in the new culture of wellness. Sometimes wellness coaching is referred to as life coaching or personal coaching as well.

After you have worked with a coach for a while and feel a level of comfort and compatibility, explore the idea of setting up a long-term coaching program.

The program may call for more intensive work to begin with, perhaps two coaching sessions per month. After that time you may choose to have one session a month or one every six weeks.   The idea is to create the framework that enables you to receive ongoing coaching.

Working with a wellness coach can keep you motivated and accountable for your agreements to reach your personal wellness goals.


  1. Well, kind of. When working with holistic therapies you encompass the entire person, not just one aspect. I truly enjoy helping people set goals and action plans. I love their successes. But I am not a certified Life Coach.

  2. Hi, I really like your presentation with information.
