Question: How is coaching different from working with a personal trainer?
Answer: The scope of practice for a health coach and a personal trainer are different. If your goals are exercise-related, we will work with you to stick to an exercise routine that is mutually agreed or provided by a personal trainer. Health Coaches do not instruct clients on specific exercises or create exercise programs. Instead, a Health Coach will help a client create goals that allow them to stick to their desired exercise routines and create better overall well-being.
Question: What certifications do Health Coaches have?
Answer: To be a certified health coach, training must be received through a reputable health and wellness institution such as the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. After completing the program, coaches can apply to sit for the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) board-certification exam (after completing the prerequisites), which demonstrates their dedication to the practice as well as competency in their profession.
Question: How is coaching different from seeing a therapist?
Answer: Health Coaches are not mental health professionals, and their work shouldn’t be centered on treating mental health conditions. Health Coaches can provide information and support to alleviate some of the symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression through behavior and lifestyle changes. Health coaches refer clients to mental health professionals if needed.
Question: Will there be communication between sessions?
Answer: Between coaching sessions, there will be text check ins as well as information, tips and tools shared by email as well as social media platforms to help with support. You can also reach out with questions whenever necessary.
Question: Do Health Coaches take insurance, payment plans, or HSA/FSA?
Answer: At this time, we do not take health insurance for coaching services.
Question: Can Health Coaches create meal plans?
Answer: Health Coaches who focus on nutrition in their scope of practice are going to differ from licensed nutrition professionals. Dietitians and nutritionists are certified nutrition practitioners who make nutrition recommendations based on medical histories and needs, including prescribing diets. However, they do not focus on other aspects. Health Coaches empower their clients to seek out the food and diets that work for them as individuals, and they provide support and accountability for clients making these types of changes in their lives as well as others. Health Coaches can partner with licensed nutrition professionals to provide their clients with an approach which can focus specifically on the nutritional aspects of wellness and provide detailed meal plans.
I started working with Courtney in September 2022 and I’ve lost 15lbs! My blood pressure is better, I have more energy and I feel better. I still have stress but now I have tools for managing it. The food changes happened slowly, and I don’t feel like I’m missing out. The sessions keep me on track, and I learn things each time we meet.
My doctor had me start health coaching to stay compliant with my medications and exercise. I am 57 years old and was prediabetic. I signed up for the one-on-one coaching. Courtney and I have been working together for three months. I have lost 10 pounds; my blood pressure is better, and my medication has been reduced. I learned that food impacts your blood sugar and the choices I was making were causing problems. I feel better and hope to come off the medications completely.
