“Changing our behavior is the single most important step we can take to prevent and reverse chronic disease.” Dr. Chris Kresser
Does this sound like you: You start on a health care plan feeling very motivated and focussed only to be right back at square one after a few weeks?
Most health plans, whether they’re about quitting bad habits, losing weight, or exercising more, aren’t designed to last. This is because they’re based on an incorrect assumption that all you need is willpower and motivation.
In truth, we all need a support system to help guide us toward sustainable behaviour and lifestyle change. The reality is that the majority of healthcare happens outside of the doctor’s office. That’s why it’s been said that most health care is self-care.
Why hire a Health Coach?
Given the alarming rise of chronic disease and the capacity of health coaches to prevent and reverse it, it’s no surprise that health coaching is exploding as a profession. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has endorsed health coaching as vital to the future of healthcare.
Prestigious institutions like Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic have already integrated health coaches into their care model. Almost half of US corporations offer a wellness program to their employees and many of these programs include health coaching. According to the Coach Federation, it’s one of the fastest-growing professions in the USA.
A Health Coach empowers you to discover your own wisdom and strength. They will help you create your own solutions to problems while supporting you without judgment. They hold you accountable to your goals which you work towards using a mutually created plan.
In short, a health coach is a change agent. They provide the right kind of support to help clients make critical lifestyle and behaviour changes aligned with their health goals.
Health coaches can help clients reach their full potential by guiding them to discover their own motivation for change – their why.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the combination of hypnosis and therapy. The hypnosis will be aimed towards precise, outcome-oriented suggestions achieved through direct communication with the subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy produces rapid results for changing beliefs, habits, choices or behaviours.
Some uses for Hypnotherapy in combination with Health Coaching
- Weight loss – Hypnotherapy promotes positive behaviour changes that when combined with a healthy lifestyle and positive dietary habits weight loss can be achieved.
- Relieving anxiety symptoms – Hypnotherapy can be used to release negative emotions from the body so once combined with Health Coaching, where the client can learn many stress-relieving techniques, a sense of calm and peace can be achieved.
- Enhanced sleep – Hypnotherapy can help those who struggle with sleep, like falling asleep, staying asleep, or even sleepwalking and severe insomnia. During Health Coaching sessions the client can learn some practical tips to encourage a good night’s sleep.
Health coaching guides people to make sustainable behaviour alterations, making Hypnotherapy a perfect complement to health coaching. Health Coaches support clients in many ways, helping them take a holistic view of their health and discussing the areas of their lives that need the most attention and consideration.
Health coaching encourages people to go inside to find the solutions to their health concerns consciously whereas Hypnotherapy focuses on accessing the subconscious mind.
Once the conscious mind and the subconscious mind are in alignment with each other rapid lasting change can occur.
