Health and Welbeing Coaching
Health and wellbeing coaches (HWBCs) predominantly use health coaching & motivational skills to support people with lower levels of patient activation to develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to become active participants in their own healthcare so that they can reach their self-identified health and wellbeing goals.
This personalised support is delivered through multiple sessions, increasing patient activation levels and empowering them to identify and implement lifestyle changes and self-management approaches to managing existing conditions or prevention of long-term physical and emotional health conditions.
The HWBC will work in partnership with multidisciplinary teams including the GP’s, Social Prescribing and Care Coordinators Teams to holistically support patients’ wider health & wellbeing.
