Wellness Coaching

At the Dottie Fuqua Women’s Heart Support Network, we’re here to help you learn how to take control of your life, how to take a positive approach to heart health and how to improve your individual risk factors.

Wellness CoachingAccording to the Centers for Disease Control, wellness is defined as the degree to which one feels positive and enthusiastic about life. Health and wellness coaches are certified to safely guide patients to healthy, sustainable behavior change by challenging them to develop their inner wisdom, identify their values and transform their goals into action.

Wellness Coaching can help in several ways, including:

  • Establishing positive self-talk
  • Understanding how to set attainable yet challenging SMART goals
  • Identifying internal and external barriers to overall health and well-being
  • Increasing self-motivation and self-ownership
  • Focusing on the whole being: emotional, physical, nutritional and behavioral.

Wellness coaching sessions are held virtually. Physician referral required.
