How is it different?
Recovery and Wellness Coaching is not the same as other assisting professions, although it is complementary.
Recovery and Wellness Coaching is not a ‘treatment’.
It is based on a wellness model that focuses on an individuals assets, capabilities and potential rather than looking only for where they are struggling.
Whilst medical treatment and support is a desirable and necessary component of dealing with a healthcare challenge it is only part of a recovery to wellness process. Recovery and Wellness Coaching focuses almost exclusively on the post treatment recovery to wellness journey.
When an individual is seeking to improve their wellness and performance so the key drivers of success in this come from the individual themselves. Their attitudes, beliefs, knowledge, emotional intelligence, their thinking resources and their willingness to change and grow.
It is this integrated approach to building recovery and wellness based on a persons own strengths that Recovery and Wellness Coaches are trained to do.
Recovery and Wellness Coaches are able to work with you to build on your capacity to change aspects of your life and behaviour that you want to change.
