What is Health Coaching?

Starting is the hardest part, but HatchPath makes it easy.

If you’ve lost track of the promises you’ve broken to yourself, a professional health coach could help guide and support you towards feeling like you again.

If the term “health coach” is new to you, don’t worry, you’re not out of the loop. While health coaching is an age-old practice, it’s become more prevalent and accepted in the modern world within the last few decades. Health coaching allows experts to truly practice their dexterities within their niche, conveying to those that don’t have the answers. As we gear towards a digitally dominant world, we naturally need to adapt without losing the sense of community and connection.

Read on to learn more about the progressive healing practice and see if it’s the right path for you.

Is health coaching right for me?

A health coach can help clients with anything from fatiguing insecurities to untapped creativity. They’re here for us when we can’t be here for ourselves.

Aside from breaking down walls and connecting with individuals to find the root of their troubles, health coaches help map out goals of any magnitude and hold clients accountable with care.

Yes, you can do challenging, inner self-work individually and take on goals, but that doesn’t mean you should. Plus, you don’t have to.

It can be difficult to take a step back from yourself, but with the help of a caring, devoted health coach, you’ll be able to see things much clearer and start to peel back the layers of your distress.

How do I find my ideal health coach? What should I be looking for?

One of the greatest aspects of working with a health coach is choice.

Just as your hardships and/or goals are specific, the expertise of a coach is as well. With HatchPath, you can find experienced health coaches that specialize in exactly what you need guidance in.

It all comes down to connection. If you aren’t comfortable speaking and being vulnerable with a coach, they’re not the right fit for you. This is why we allow open communication between coaches and clients as soon as the client initiates dialogue.

Sometimes our problems aren’t so clear, and that’s okay. If you’re feeling a bit lost and aren’t sure what type of support would even benefit you, then you’re in good company. Finding a coach who specializes in your specific concern and meets your budget aren’t the only factors to evaluate. Consider qualities that make you feel at ease, like patience and diligence for example, and take those into account when reviewing different health coaches' styles and processes.

One of the biggest hurdles when it comes to beginning a wellness journey is self-awareness. That’s why a new perspective is so beneficial, especially that of a professional.

What exactly does a health coach do?
What is the purpose of a health coach?

Health coaches challenge you to challenge yourself. They work with you, not against you. They will be your partner in this transformative journey, rooting for nothing but optimum happiness and peace. Coaches ask the right questions that allow you to shatter your life’s barricades and uncover what’s really standing in between you and a life of authenticity.

By approaching health and wellness with supportive energy, a sense of comfort is established which creates the necessary space to unfold a strong sense of purpose.

We’re often what stands in our own way, which aside from being frustrating, can have a long-term impact on our lives and choices. Throughout an in-depth program, health coaches motivate you, hold you accountable, and prompt you to dig deeper. A health coach provides answers to questions you didn’t even know you had.

With a variety of professional expertise, health coaches can help with straightforward goals attached to hard deadlines as well as more opaque pursuits leading to a better mindset. Some coaches specialize in intellectual growth and spirituality, whereas others may center their focus on career objectives, social skills, or anxiety. A health coach will not only guide you through the actions to inner bliss but will leave you with a roadmap to continue living a life of equilibrium after your program is complete.

With a huge community of experts in both physical and emotional wellness, there is a HatchPath health coach that can help you unveil your purpose.
