There’s a reason why many patients feel so respected and understood in visits with naturopathic doctors! We not only receive extensive training in counseling, but lifestyle coaching as well! We know that health is not just the absence of disease, but a bigger picture involving mental and emotional well-being. We have skills to support you on your journey to health! We can even help you create the path!
The main difference between counseling and coaching is that counseling tends to focus on areas of healing, and coaching focuses on the results you want to get.
Because we take a holistic approach to health, it’s not easy to draw a clear line where counseling ends and coaching begins.
We always have your health goals in mind, and everything we do is to help you reach them. Sometimes that takes the form of active listening, emotional support, or correcting patterns of thinking or behavior that are unhealthy. Other times, we’re here to cheer you on and hold you accountable to the things you said you’d do for yourself, for your health.
Patterns and habits can be so difficult to break. From healthy eating, to getting enough exercise, to quitting smoking, taking the first step is the hardest part, but sticking with it is just as important. NDs are here to motivate you to make the changes you need to make so you can have the transformation you want.
