Are you curious about the field of health coaching but aren’t sure what a health coach actually does?

I work with a lot of new and aspiring coaches, and at the beginning of this journey, there’s often a lot of confusion. What exactly does a health coach DO? What does it mean to call yourself a health or wellness coach?

I remember when I first began pivoting from conventional medicine to coaching … I was confused too. I had a vague idea of what a health coach might do, but I was a little fuzzy on the details. 

So that’s what I’m doing in this video. I’m going to clear up those fuzzy details so you can actually have a really good picture of what it means to be a health and wellness coach…so you can decide for yourself if this is the right career path for you.

In this video I explain what a health or wellness coach actually is, why we need health coaches, and what it could mean for you to become a health coach.

After watching this video, I’d love to know your thoughts.

What questions do you still have about this career? Which pieces are still confusing? Let me know your thoughts and questions below in the comments below or finding me on Instagram and DM me or tag me in your stories!
