The Health Coach Programme
Patients within the NHS can sign up to the Health Coach Programme by either contacting us directly or through their own GP. It is a unique project supporting and empowering patients to identify what sits behind their health issues and in turn to make long-term sustainable changes to their health and wellbeing changes.
At Vitality Works, we understand that our own behaviour is the biggest determinant of our health and wellbeing, however, making lifestyle changes can be very challenging, and we often come up against personal and environmental barriers that prevent us from moving forward. This led us to develop the ‘Four principles’ EAT MOVE BREATHE LOVE – four interwoven elements in which are the foundation for creating a sustainable, healthier and more fulfilling life.
Our Health Coaches work with the 4 Principles and a 10-step resilience programme to look at the root cause of symptoms of ill health and work with the patient create a self-care tool kit, enabling patients to set goals and embed changes.
The Health Coach Programme offers;
The 10 step resilience programme
When we talk about resilience, we identify is as a mind muscle, a skill that can be learnt and practiced. Resilience is the ability to react to life experiences with an outlook that draws on strong self-care provision, enabling you to observe, understand and become empowered to move forward.
The 10 Step resilience programme is available to patients either on line or at a local drop in session.
The programme enables us to break down the main characteristics of a resilient person into 10 sessions and expand on the tools and process to put in place to become better equipped for a life with courage and joy.
