What is wellness coaching?

Strawberry

Success starts with you

Wellness coaching is flexible, nonjudgmental, and tailored to you.

Coaches don’t tell you what to do. They accept where you are now, and help you discover your goals as well as some ideas for meeting them your way.

"Being mindful and focusing on my success helped me move forward…even if I slipped up sometimes."

Phone coaching sessions last about 20 minutes. During your first session, your coach will help you decide how important your goal is and spell out what success would look like to you.

During follow-up sessions, he or she will partner with you to find out what kind of support you need to be successful and guidance to help you find your motivation to be your healthiest self.

Need help finding places to exercise, healthy recipes, or support groups? Your coach can help you find the right resources for you.

Your wellness coach is part of your health team, so your coach can help you coordinate and communicate your care with your physician and the rest of your health care team at Kaiser Permanente facilities.

Is wellness coaching for you?

Don’t want to go to a class? Have a busy schedule?

Depending on your situation, coaching can be more comfortable and convenient because you and your coach schedule phone appointments at times that are convenient for you. And it can be just as effective in helping you reach your goals.
