Your habits determine your health
We know change is difficult. It certainly doesn’t happen overnight. You have to set realistic expectations, but if you take it slow, one step at a time, you can develop a strong foundation for success. Habits define our behavior. Developing healthy ones is what Habitual Health is all about. You don’t always have to be perfect. You’re human. Give yourself permission to fail every once in a while. We will give you the tools you need to get back on track and build a mindset for success.
Typical Client Goals may include:
- Developing a more healthy lifestyle
- Developing self-confidence
- Clearing mental clutter (focusing on what is really important)
- Improving personal relationships
- Getting un-stuck (at work or in your personal life)
- Starting a new business
Experience the peace and joy that comes from finding your true purpose
Make no mistake, the process of creating the life you want starts and ends with you. You are the master of your own destiny. We merely supply the map and offer guidance. We will encourage you each and every step of the way. The first step on your journey is a simple one, a phone call, followed by a 30-minute introductory session where we get to know each other and define your goals.
If both parties agree to continue the work, we will set up a schedule of 1-4 sessions per month, decide on a timeline, and assign some homework (yes coaching is work for both parties).
Types of Coaching
There are many tools and strategies that a coach may use to assist their client and the choices may evolve as the client progresses toward their goal. Ones typically used at Habitual Health include:
Self-Discovery – This is a client-driven approach that is most commonly used to help find clarity and focus. Many people may feel that something is not right but not know how to define it. The coach will use open-ended questions and passive listening techniques to help the client identify needs and establish a self-improvement plan. Self-Discovery is often used as a first step leading to other coaching techniques.
Visualization – This is a powerful technique that uses mindfulness or focused attention techniques to help the client “see” themselves in a better place. By using the visual power of the mind we can often get past thoughts and habits that are holding us back.
Mentoring – Mentoring is usually a two-way conversation between client and coach that allows the coach to pass on their experience or professional opinion to the client regarding plans or actions they are taking to achieve their life goals. Mentoring is more often used in work or business coaching but can be applied to any situation as merited.
Cognitive Behavioral – Cognitive Behavioral Coaching (CBC) has evolved from the broader professional psychological discipline of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). While CBT is a powerful mental therapy that should only be used by trained professionals, CBC utilizes a small subset of CBT techniques and strategies to safely help clients identify and change thoughts, habits, or preconceived ideas that are limiting their progress.
Wholistic – As a modern play on the word “holistic” this method identifies the need to address the “Whole” person (body and mind) when looking for a balanced life. This may mean using a combination of the coaching techniques defined above or incorporating non-coaching life practices such as meditation, Ayurvedic diet, and Yoga into the individual client plan.
