Why Hire a Family Health Coach?

Have you considered hiring a family health coach? If you are like most families, this is a new concept and you may have considered hiring a health coach for your child or for you, but maybe not a family health coach. However, if you have one or more children who struggles with allergies, food allergies and or sensitivities, autism and or other challenges, then hiring a family coach may be just the solution to helping your child and the entire family thrive and be happier and experience less stress.

Here are five reasons why it makes sense to hire a family health coach.

1. Get help improving eating habits of the entire family. While you have only have 1 or 2 members of your family who have to improve their eating habits in order to either thrive or in some cases even survive, a family health coach can help your entire family to improve their eating habits. This can be very helpful and make it easier for the 1 or 2 family members who have to change their diet, and it can help with the overall health of everyone in the family.

2. Get healthy together. This is important so that the entire family can get heathy and you can avoid having additional problems with other members of the family later. It can also create a bonding experience for the other children with the sibling who needs help.

3. Take the presure of of you as the parents. Too often when a parent begins working with a child on a special diet, one of the biggest challenges can be getting the child to comply. When the child thinks that it’s only the parent trying to get him or her to follow a special diet, then it can create more pressure and hassles. Whereas if a family health coach steps in and starts working with the child, then the coach is seen by the child as having more authority and being more credible.

4. Save time and money. While yes you will invest some time and money into a family health coach, over the long term you will also save time and money on grocery shopping, cooking, dealing with meltdowns at the dinner table and more. A family health coach will help you accomplish what you need to with your child and the entire family and will save you time running around the grocery store and not knowing what to buy as well as give you tips on how to save money cooking meals for a special diet. In addition, you will probably avoid some medical bills by exercising prevention and preventing some serious health issues before they occur.

5. Support your child with special needs without going crazy. If you try and do everything you need to do when it comes to diet and lifestyle for your child, you will go nuts. I talk to parents all the time who try to do it alone and their is so much to do and so much to learn that having a family health coach will help you a lot and help keep you sane.

7 Health Coaching Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Health Coach

Question_mark_(black_on_white)

Hiring a health coach can be a big decision as it is an investment of your time and money. So you want to make sure that you make the best decision for your health and your future. So here are some questions to ask a potential health coach before hiring him or her.

1. What kind of knowledge and training do you have with my specific needs? This is important because not all health coaches have experience with the same areas of health. For example, my specialty is in allergies, asthma and autism, although I also know quite a bit about digestion, sleep and weight loss. However, I know very little about cancer, and hormone issues just to name a few.

2. How much will your coaching cost me over the long term? This should be given to you in a contract that you sign and return to your coach. If it is not, then you should ask your health coach about this.

3. What exactly can I expect to get from my health coaching with you? Your health coach should provide you with a summary of what your program will include.

4. What happens if I decide to stop in the middle of the program or if I am not satisfied with your services? This is important to know since things can come up and you may not want to continue. With me personally I do not offer refunds and I only allow my clients to stop in the middle of a 6 month or 9 month program without contenting to pay if there is an emergency that comes up. Otherwise you are required to continue.

5. How much time per week will I need to work on my goals and other suggestions that you give me? Face it. People are busy and so making sure that people know beforehand how much time they will need each week is important.

6. Are there any other costs associated with your health coaching programs? This is important because people need to budget. For example, if you are going to recommend that people buy supplements, probiotics or get a gym membership you need to tell people up front what additional costs they can expect.

7. Do you also sell or recomend products? This is important because people will want to know what you use and recommend since not everyone will agree.
