Wellness coaching has become a promising solution to lowering the obesity rate and health care costs particularly in the western countries. Recent studies on wellness coaching have concluded that coaching can help with weight loss (Leahey & Wing, 2012). In Kenya, with increased shift to consuming western type goods, the country is progressively facing the same health challenges the west is facing. Synergy ICCT has decided to incorporate Health and wellness coaching in its program. A wellness coach will give their clients encouragement, motivation and the tools they need to achieve their physical and emotional health goals. Unlike a nutritionist or physical therapist, who make specific recommendations, a wellness coach will work with you to make better general health choices that fit within your lifestyle.
The main focus of wellness coaching is prevention of diseases, and living a holistic healthy life style physically, mentally and spiritually. In the wellness coaching process, the coach holds the clients accountable to the achievement of health and wellness goals they have set. The coach takes and active role in helping the client set goals, identify barrier, obstacles and achieve their healthcare needs. Although coaches take an active role in assisting clients set up goals, identify barriers and obstacles that hinder them from achieving their healthcare needs, the work is specifically done by the client. Our role as coaches is only to sensitize, motivate, promote, challenge, facilitate and subsequently hold them accountable to whatever they have committed to achieve. People work with wellness coaches for several reason among them weight loss, stress management, life issues, health, disease prevention, fitness and nutrition. Because health and wellness coaching takes a long time to achieve desired results thus ending up being very expensive usually at $150 to $200 per hour, Synergy ICCT has created a cost effective and innovative approach to reducing the obesity rate and repositioning people on the road to recovery. Our program offers a highly subsidized eight-week package that is effective and will put clients on the path to overcoming health and wellness challenges. Coaching is for those who really want help and are willing to do whatever it takes. If you think this is something you want to do and are committed, then our coaches are ready and willing to work with you.
