What is and Why Hire a Holistic Wellness Coach?

You probably are familiar with the title, Holistic Wellness Coach yet are not sure what this profession entails or why you would want to hire one. Before going into the question of why hire one, let me begin with a general outline of the Scope of Practice that a Registered Certified Holistic Wellness Coach follows.

Below I have shared part of my personal Scope of Practice outline with you:

"An IAWP Holistic Wellness Coach, RHC HCA is a mentor, motivator and guide that focuses on helping people improve their overall health using a positive and preventative approach. My role includes supporting people through lifestyle changes following a coaching protocol that uses motivational interviewing and client-led methods. Coaching areas may include self-care, eating habits, healthy lifestyle choices, life purpose, career exploration and stress management. An IAWP Holistic Wellness Coach, RHC HCA is not a licensed professional and does not prescribe, treat or diagnose illness."

Now that you have a definition of what to expect, you may be still thinking ok thats great but WHY would I work with a coach? You may think, do I need this in my life? Will it make a difference? Am I ready for this? Is making a lasting transformation for the positive an important vision or desire of mine?

As we are all unique, people will hire a coach for various reasons. Perhaps you are in a good place already moving in the desired direction, yet you want to keep moving forward, keep evolving, improve some personal skills to kick things up to the next level and help keep you on track. Perhaps you need some extra motivation as you have the desire to feel - more energized, - build inner strength, - have better sleeps so you are excited about the new day, - enjoy the creativity and ease of eating nourishing foods, - have the mental clarity of making confident decisions knowing what you want, - having a positive mindset towards the importance of movement in your life and making this a priority because you are worth it, - maybe there is a wanted career change, - or wanting to make a positive difference in the relationships around you whether that be with your partner, at work or family or - you want to love and feel sexy in your own skin again. People invest in a coach as a preventative approach as well to stay as healthy as possible and/or work with existing issues they might have such as, managing menopausal symptoms, hormone issues, chronic health issues, recovery from injuries, and more by living a holistic lifestyle.

{Side note: Holistic approach means - provide support that looks at the whole person not just looking at just one part. For example, looking at mental and social factors rather than just physical symptoms. Support considers mental, physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing.}

This can be very empowering when you become in tune with what is happening from the inside out, when you have a vision of what you want and you know what steps you can take. Feeling supported as you move from a negative or not so nice state to a more positive one, resulting in lasting transformation. Life is always changing. Having someone there that is a professional can help you feel safe, guided and will walk with you on your healing and successful path. This is very powerful.

Sometimes all we need is an added push to keep us accountable on our journey. Someone that listens, creates a space for self improvement and is a supportive. Hiring a coach is a wise step to attain your next milestone. It is important when working with a coach that they are registered and certified.
