Health Coaching from Mission
It takes more than just knowing healthy lifestyle information to actually change our behavior. But how can we move through what's stopping us from acting in a healthy way? Mission Hospital has developed a Health Coaching Program that is available to its staff, as well as to others in the community to help answer this question.
This service offers an approach called Intrinsic Coaching®. Most of us think of coaches as someone who gives us guidance by telling us what to do. With Intrinsic Coaching, the essential ingredient is you. Your thinking and goals are the center of attention. The Intrinsic Coaching program led by RNs, helps the participant look within themselves to come to their own goals and realizations in order to find out what is holding them back from where they want to be. This translates into enhanced health, which affects all areas of life.
The coaching is about a 100-day process and commitment, involving six face-to-face meetings with two check-in phone conversations.
Referrals may be made by a disease management care manager, or by self-referral on a self-pay basis for those in the community.
