In addition to being a registered Physiotherapist, your clinician has also undergone training in Health Coaching techniques. This information explains what Health Coaching is.
What is Health Coaching?
Health Coaching is an approach that guides and supports people to be active participants in managing their own health conditions. In other words, it aims to make sure that you are involved in making decisions about your health and how you manage it.
What is different about Health Coaching?
Traditionally, doctors and therapists would have simply told patients what to do when it came to their health. Health Coaching involves your physiotherapist working with you, to help you to identify the things that you yourself feel able to do to improve your health condition. Making decisions together is much more effective than simply being told what to do.
Why is Health Coaching a good idea for me?
To get the best results, you need to work together with your physiotherapist to explore what you can do to help yourself. In other words, if you rely on your physiotherapist to come up with all the ideas and make all the decisions, you may find that the results aren’t as good as they could be. Health Coaching is a way of inviting you to identify the changes that will work best for you.
