Why do you need a Health Coach?
A health coach fills a unique role in today's health revolution...
Often, individuals know that they need to make changes, or they are told they need to by their health care providers, but they don't know exactly how to go about doing it. A health coach is the how of this equation.
A health coach seeks to educate and support their clients to achieve their health goals through the areas of Nutrition, Lifestyle, and Behaviors. By exploring these areas, we discover what will bring you success and what might be holding you back. Working at a pace that is comfortable for you, we will co-create a wellness vision and develop step-by-step strategies to help you achieve this vision.
Whether your goals are to lose weight, feel less stress, increase energy, avoid chronic illness, transform your families eating habits, receive guidance and support while trying to adapt to new dietary restrictions or just to get plain healthier... A health coach can help you navigate the sometimes overwhelming world of contradictory advise to figure out what works for you and your family.
And, since nothing is a one size fits all, we work together to find out what works. Just for you!
It is also important to know what a health coach is not...
A health coach is not a doctor nor are they a mental health counselor. They do not diagnose or treat conditions, nor do they prescribe medications. Depending on the individual's certifications, coaches can recommend specific practices for you.
Personally, by utilizing my background as a yoga/meditation teacher and an outdoor educator, I might recommend certain practices to relieve mental and physical tension, but only if you choose to use them.
Hello! My name is Georgette Vougias, and I am a former National Park Ranger turned health and wellness coach who is dedicated to guiding others on their personal journeys to radiant health and the priceless freedom that comes from that.
My personal journey, and motivation towards becoming a health advocate, first began after spending most of my youth, and young adult life being extremely overweight and silently fighting an eating disorder that I had no idea how to stop. Looking back, I remember not feeling at home in my own body. I also remember not having the freedom to move how I wanted to move nor live the life that I truly wanted for myself. With study, hard work, making (and learning from) countless mistakes and continually nurturing my self-worth and self-efficacy, I did find the health and the life that I wanted, and I fulfilled every dream that I imagined.
I am now using those same skills and strengths to face my newest challenge...fighting and winning, my battle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Fibromyalgia, and Late Stage Chronic Lyme Disease.
My dream now (and my absolute joy) is to share with others what I have learned along my journey and to be a champion for those looking to better and lengthen their lives, to decrease their risk of illness, and to help others succeed in their health transformation regardless of where they are in their journey. I would love to meet you and discuss how we can work together to help you reach the goals and dreams you have for yourself and your family.
