  4. 4. Reclaim Your Life with the Help of a Wellness Coach Wellness Coaching is a guilt-free, no-nag zone, in which your personal well-being is the number one priority. A Wellness Coach can help motivate you, provide unconditional support, assist you in identify- ing your personal strengths and help you build upon them. Via skillfully conducted “coaching sessions”, they help shine a light on what may be holding you back. Many clients have specific health goals in mind, but many are also trying to make changes in their lives. Some choose wellness coaching after being diag- nosed with a health challenge such as cancer. Well- ness Coaches do their very best to help you see your way clear to realizing that progress really occurs between sessions, when you begin implementing those actions that you and your coach agree will lead to the most dramatic results. While it’s easy to develop a sense of lost hope, and feel victimized by a lab result, studies show that people who face their fears often tap into their will to live and be well. Learning to shift your mind set to view the situation as a “challenge” will help you gain the confidence to emerge as a stronger person. When you have the support of a helping hand by your side you’ll often conquer more than your own fears. As your Wellness Coach, we will have the honor of being one of your allies throughout this process. The key is — you don’t have to do it alone.
