What is Health Coaching?
It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to explore their wellness goals with a trained professional. Your certified Integrative Nutrition* Health Coach will create a supportive environment that enables you to articulate and achieve your goals. You will have access to the most cutting-edge dietary theories and highly effective coaching techniques to help you find the right lifestyle that works best for you.
Most approaches to healthy eating dwell on calories, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, we will explore basic improvements and implement gradual changes during our work together. As these pieces accumulate, clients find these changes collectively creating a much larger impact than they originally anticipated. We work on what they want to improve within the circumstances of their unique situation.
Health Coach Bio:
Jeanine Thompson, MPT
My healthcare journey began with a career as a Physical Therapist where I quickly discovered the importance of a more proactive approach to health and wellness. As a result, I began teaching Pilates to help clients take care of their bodies on a musculoskeletal level. While I saw significant improvement in their health, I realized that many had not reached their optimum wellness goals because they weren’t taking care of their bodies from the inside, or putting the right nutrients in their body! Thus my decision to add Health Coach to my title to round out my approach to wellness.
I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition*, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. With my knowledge, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.
The Approach to a Healthier Life
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship(s) cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
I work with my clients to get in touch with their body’s needs because I understand that life happens and your needs will change. I want to equip you with the self-awareness to make the best decisions for yourself in any given circumstance. I believe each person is fully capable of making well-informed decisions as their own expert, not the latest magazine article or fad diet book.
Let’s define what you value most from your well-being. We’ll use these visions to motivate specific goals that bring you closer to where you want to be. As your coach, I will not dictate a diet for you, but together we will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback. Together we’ll co-create your health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable objectives so you know exactly what you’re working toward.
