Why use a Wellness Coach?
A Note from Rose Health Clinic’s Counsellor and Health and Wellness Coach, Deon Ambersley
As a registered Social Worker and Clinical Counsellor with over 15 years experience, I have counselled countless individuals, on a variety of different issues. However, while most people are familiar with my work as a counsellor, I find many people are not as familiar with the benefits of working with a Coach.
If I were to describe coaching, I would say, a coach turns your dreams into goals and helps you to see them through. Whatever area in your life you would like to improve, Coaching can help you get there. It unearths your internal motivations and uses them as a vehicle to transform unhelpful thoughts and behaviours.
The greatest thing about coaching is nothing has to be “wrong” for you to benefit from it. Oftentimes people seek counselling when they are trying to resolve difficulties that are causing distress. You can see a coach to improve an already good situation. Oftentimes I will have clients come to me, unable to pinpoint why they’ve come to see me. On the surface things are pretty okay, but in certain areas they still feel “stuck.” Despite all the successes they’ve achieved, somewhere deep within, there is a void, or an unexpressed need. Alternatively, they may also be very clear on their goal, and just need some help attaining it.
As your Health and Wellness Coach I look at you as a whole person, and help you find balance and fulfillment in all aspects of your life. We work together to assess your needs, identify your goals, and co-create a plan which you’ll be successful in achieving. I look at what is working well, and help you identify ways in which to make them better. Most importantly, I keep you on track and accountable, so you will be successful.
