The extension to all people of the benefits of medical, psychological and related knowledge is essential to the fullest attainment of health."Principles as set out in the World Health Organization's Constitution Preamble

What is Health & Wellness Coaching?

Health and wellness coaching is a science and an art form, not just a process.

Fundamentally, health & wellness coaching encompasses the sciences of positive psychology, behaviour change, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle medicine with the dynamic art of relationships, teamwork and community.
