Um, what is a Wellness Coach exactly?

First thing's first: A wellness coach is not your high school sports coach barking orders and rules at you. Erica won't tell you what to do. You've likely tried one-size-fits-all programs in the past, and they didn't work for you ... or you just didn't remain disciplined. (No judgment there.) This coaching model is a partnership, with you actively in the driver's seat.

Health and wellness coaching (HWC) is a relatively new field that sits at the intersection of managed care and self-care. HWCs are experts in establishing relationships and using motivational interviewing to: identify values and desires; transform them into action; and maintain lasting behavior change over time. HWCs foster a dynamic collaboration, grounded in research, that draws upon your intrinsic values, strengths and motivators to keep you aligned to goals, plans and visions ultimately designed by YOU. There is built-in accountability in the coaching relationship -- something that often helps in propelling challenging change.

The Mayo Clinic training is grounded in evidence-based research, including motivational interviewing and positive psychology, plus multiple rounds of practicum coaching. HWCs who graduate from this program are not psychotherapists, although coaching itself can be therapeutic.
