How to make and maintain changes in your health

How to make and maintain changes in your health

I am a journalist.

One of the things I loved most about working on sports television in the ’80s and ’90s was interviewing athletes and helping to tell their stories, especially learning the things that made them succeed other than their athletic achievements.

Things such as their motivation off the playing field, what they ate for breakfast, why they wore the same socks every competition, who inspired them, who helped them mentally, physically and emotionally, and what they did in their spare time for fun!

I am curious by nature and an empath at heart.

As an empath, I am genuinely interested in others. As a coach, this skill has helped me help others become the best versions of themselves for over twenty years.

As John Hanely said, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

Being a behaviour change health coach is like being a journalist:

“A journalist interviews experts in order to write a story. A good journalist is never the expert on the story. There’s no way for a journalist to be an authority on every topic written. The journalist becomes informed on a topic only through researching it and interviewing individuals closest to the story. A journalist has to maintain an unbiased stance and an aura of curiosity. In addition, a journalist must use evocative questions to draw out the experiences, opinions, and emotions of their sources.”

In behaviour change coaching, the interview prompts you to talk about the changes you want to make and your motivation about what you care about.

Making and maintaining changes in your health takes work for everyone.

I honour my clients as the experts in their lives and world by empowering them to find their answers by asking nonjudgmental and positive questions, delivering powerful reflections, and becoming the catalyst for lasting change.

Your friend and coach,
