What is health coaching?
Health coaching assists you with developing and realizing your optimal health vision through inquiry, personal discovery and accountability.
Health coaching clients reach goals, improve their health and enhance their quality of life by using reporting, exploring, and a consistent commitment to action to move forward.
Coaching provides an opportunity for you to collaborate with an experienced partner to carve out the kind of optimal health you’ve envisioned.
Why choose an integrative approach?
IHS partners with you and inspires you to think of ways to maximize your health and manage stress by altering behaviors around: nutrition, physical activity, free time, rest and play.
We assist you with clarifying your mission, purpose and goals to help achieve that outcome, providing tools and inspiration to avoid a chronic disease or not letting a chronic disease take over your health.
Evidence-based training in: appreciative inquiry, motivational interviewing, positive psychology & behavioral change.
Using non-judgment and compassion, we avoid taking the 'expert role' and meet you where you are.
Integrative coaching is committed to the practice of best medicine, it recognizes and incorporates both conventional and complementary services and would be happy to collaborate with your primary care physician and/or mental health counselor with your consent.
