What is Health Coaching?


Stephen Roigard

Health and wellness coaching is a science and an art form, not just a process.

Fundamentally, health & wellness coaching encompasses the sciences of positive psychology, behaviour change, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle medicine with the dynamic art of relationships, teamwork and community.

Health & Wellness Coaches focus on guiding and assisting you to develop the resilience advantage that long term behaviour change delivers in health and wellness outcomes. Health Coaching is a client-centred approach that focuses on assisting you to elicit and clarify your values, gain insights into your lifestyle practices and develop a deeper understanding of possibilities and pathways to resolution of your current challenges.

This is a journey of self-discovery that ultimately leads to setting goals, accepting a level of self-responsibility and experiencing positive self-determination. It is this self-awareness and knowledge that inspires and motivates you to bridge the gap between intention and action.

What is the structure of health coaching sessions?

Our health coaching sessions are all about YOU and achieving your health and well-being goals:

  1. You are coached through your recovery from the set back you have experienced in your health or fitness.
  2. You are then guided through a reset phase to implement a fresh nutritional and exercise paradigm aimed at inflammation reduction and improved vitality and fitness. The aim is to help you discover the best path to a new, regenerated you.

The core program offered is a 12-week program. Twelve weeks is how long it takes to see some rewarding and lasting habitual changes. If you feel you need more guidance, extending this to a 6 month period would be beneficial.

The key component is having your coach there to discover the barriers, help you find ways to break them down and discover lasting habits for regeneration. The program includes nutritional and wellness resources and example workout ideas, if needed.

I am committed to helping you get the most from your health and fitness goals.
