If you are considering working with a coach, it's important to realize how integrative health coaching is distinct from other health care professions. Here are a few important ways:

  • The client is the expert. When you consult with most health care providers, you probably expect them to conduct an assessment, make a diagnosis, and New heightsgive recommendations for treatment. You look to them to be the expert. In coaching, the relationship is based on shared expertise. The coach is the expert at guiding the coaching inquiry, but you are the expert in your life and what is important to you. In short, it isn't the coach's job to give advice, but rather to help you find your own solutions based on the strengths and wisdom you already have.
  • There is nothing to "fix". The coaching process is intended to be educational and motivational, providing opportunities for growth and development in areas that are important to you. As such, you are invited to participate in a spirit of curiosity and non-judgement.
  • Coaching is not a substitute for health care. Coaching isn't considered to be a therapeutic service because nothing is "wrong". If you have a health condition that needs treatment, coaching should not be seen as a substitute for other appropriate professional care.
  • Coaching requires the client's work, focus and time. Coaching is focused on facilitating deeper awareness and appropriate action. Much of the inquiry occurs between sessions. For individual coaching work, we recommend an initial commitment of 12 weeks of bi-weekly sessions to allow sufficient time to design and implement actions that will lead to sustainable change.

Are you ready for a change?

Integrative Health Coaching is a dynamic process that is centered on you, the health-seeker. In this process, Julie acts as a resource and a mirror -- listening deeply and Butterflyasking powerful questions that are meant to help you focus on what is most important to you about your health.

As you get more clear about what you want, Julie helps you hone in on the specific goals that will move you toward that vision. She will journey with you as your work towards your goals, helping you to identify the strengths that work in your favor, and helping you design approaches that increase your likelihood of successful and lasting change.

Throughout the time that you work together, Julie serves as your partner -- a dependable ally who offers you encouragement and helps you overcome obstacles.

If you're curious, we invite you to  learn more about what coaching is (and isn't) or explore the services that Julie offers. Ready to get started?  Please schedule a complimentary Clarity Session with Julie!

Healthy CommunityOur relationships, physical environments and communities have a huge impact on our health and well-being — in both positive and negative ways. We're more likely to make healthy choices if it's easy! If we have to go out of our way to be healthy — or if it is easier to make a less healthy choice — it can start to feel overwhelming. Being surrounded by a supportive community can make healthy choices easier to sustain over time.

At Core Health Partners, we're interested in your long-term health, and in the health of your community. That is why we offer group coaching programs and community wellness programs. Your well-being begins with you — but it doesn't have to end there. You can become a catalyst for change and create a healthier environment for the other important people in your life. It's a win-win situation. If you'd like to support your community in becoming healthier, please contact us to discuss how we can work together to make that happen.
