“The purpose of Health Coaching is to create dynamic partnerships that move people towards satisfying and healthy lifestyles. Health Coaching facilitates behavior change in a structured, supportive partnership between the participant and coach. The coach invites insights and clarity through inquiry and personal discovery. A coach focuses on the mind, body, and spirit to help clients make the changes that support a healthier lifestyle”. – Randolph Community College health coach description
