Please read through the below information which explains what you can expect in this initial appointment and how best to prepare to make the most of your time with your coach.
What is health coaching (and what it isn't)
- Health coaching is an opportunity to discuss behavior change, physical activity and nutrition based on your personal needs, interests and health status. Health coaches serve as mentors and guide to help facilitate awareness of adjustments or modifications to lifestyles that can result in healthy outcomes. Your health coach will ask questions to learn more about you to help you decide what is best for your life.
- Health coaching does not replace the advice provided to you by your regular health care providers, but rather serves as a supplement. Health coaches are not able diagnose health conditions or prescribe medications.
- Please note - everything discussed with your health coach will be kept confidential.

Be Well UC Health Coaching will offer an opportunity to talk with a professional coach to discuss:
- Any follow up questions about biometric results.
- Revisiting or setting health and wellness goals.
- Talking through challenges faced and strategies to assist with working toward health and wellness goals.

How to prepare for your appointment
