Health Coach Integration

Whether you are just starting out or have been in practice for years, you are likely attracting patients in a state of crisis. Their confidence and self-image are at an all-time low.

Seeing an emotionally distressed patient sets everyone up for struggle. Stress inhibits change and diminishes the patient’s ability to communicate, remember important guidance, and actively participate in their care.

The solution? Integrate a health coach into your practice effectively!

Health Coaches Calm the Crisis

When patients start their functional medicine journey with a health coach, the patient, the provider, and the practice are set up for success. 

A health coach can do a lot of the heavy lifting to calm the crisis within the patient and shift their mindset from victim to hero, allowing you to shine in your role as a healer.

Ask yourself: Would I rather have a distressed patient who asks, “How are you going to ‘fix’ me?” or an empowered patient who asks, “How can we achieve these goals together?”
