Daniel Island Counseling Health Coaches

Our Certified Health Coaches are trained to partner with their clients holistically, guiding them to discover their own direction, motivation, and support in reaching their goals.   It begins with a one-on-one client health assessment , addressing all the areas that affect one’s well-being.  This helps our client define his or her "WHY" which is always the first step towards success.  The assessment also helps to illuminate personal strengths likely to be helpful in the process and areas of potential challenge which may have led to failure in the past. With this knowledge, a Personalized Health Plan is created and used throughout the coaching process.  Options are discussed and the client will leave the session with SPECIFIC, REALISTIC, and ACTIONABLE steps which, if followed, are likely to start him/her on the path to the desired life changes.  Our Health Coaches will be with you for every step of your transformation to lend support, offer encouragement, and to answer questions. Your "wins" become our coaches' wins and our caring staff will help you to get back on track if you should stumble along the way. Clients who have gone through our Health Coaching program have commented that, unlike previous attempts to improve their health/lifestyle where they were just waiting for the "bottom to fall out" (as it usually did), once they have started one of our Health Coaching programs they are empowered with a level of confidence never previously experienced and a mindset where they would actually be shocked if our program didn't result in the desired sustainable results. We help our clients obtain an optimal level of health and suddenly those permanent "lifestyle changes" that may have seemed more of an abstract concept and a daunting goal in the past have become life-altering achievements in their rear view mirrors. Contact us today and in a matter of months you will be shocked at your transformation!
