Coaching for Wellness
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices for a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. Maintaining an optimal level of wellness is absolutely crucial to live a higher quality life. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing cycle.
Our lives are based in cycles, we create cycles to survive. Something happens in our past and we feel the feelings and emotions attached to that happening. We make it mean something about us, you could say that we create a ‘conversation about ourselves’. We then act out of this conversation e.g. take drugs or drink, over eat, under eat, withdraw, self harm, fight, over work, gamble or shut out family / friends. You justify these behaviours and actions because you get something from it, but there are also the costs, and these costs outweigh the benefits. It is the costs that keep you on the vicious cycles and prevent you from achieving what you say you want to achieve.
I work with people to support them in transforming the cycles that are not working for them, that hold them back, and in some cases destroy their lives, and then support them to take steps to achieve their goals and optimal wellness.
