What is lifestyle coaching?
Lifestyle coaching uses the principles of Lifestyle medicine to prevent or manage many lifestyle related chronic medical conditions. Lifestyle medicine covers the areas of nutrition, physical activity, stress and sleep management, positive psychology, social connectedness, along with safe alcohol consumption and avoidance of smoking.
Who is lifestyle coaching for?
Everyone can benefit from lifestyle coaching. It can be used to prevent or manage chronic conditions such as excessive weight, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fatty liver or diabetes. It can also be used for mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety.
Coaching provides individualised support in making changes – either alone or in conjunction with regular medical treatment. The coaching itself uses a personalised approach to work with each patient to support them in their journey to feel more empowered in managing their health.
