Thinking of becoming a health and wellness coach but wondering what a health coach actually does?

In this podcast episode I share what a health and wellness coach is, and how this differs from other professions in the health and wellness industry.

My goal is to clear up some of the confusion, and also address some of the common misconceptions about what a health coach is … and what a health coach isn’t.

I also want to give you as much information as possible so you can decide if this is the best career for you!

Here’s where you can listen in:

Here are some of the topics I cover:

  • what health and wellness coaches do better than any other healthcare practitioner … and why that is. 
  • the differences between health coaches and doctors or therapists (or any other healthcare professional) 
  • what a coach’s role and scope of practice is (and where that scope ends)
  • my explanation of why you don’t need to worry about “knowing enough” when you train to become a health & wellness coach
  • the enormous gap that exists in the health & wellness industry … and why coaches are perfectly positioned to fill that gap
  • exactly why we desperately need more health & wellness coaches in the world

…and lots more!

If you’ve been confused about any of these issues, then you definitely want to tune in to this episode — and make sure you listen all the way to the end, because I’m also going to be sharing the details with you about how you can get started on this career journey for yourself if you’re interested!

After you listen, I’d love to hear your what your big takeaway was from this episode. Let me know in the comments below, or find me on Instagram and DM me or tag me in your stories!
