“Because your employee’s health IS your business.”

75% – The percentage of our healthcare costs that go to treating individuals with PREVENTABLE chronic diseases.

Global rates of obesity, diabetes, and other chronic stress related diseases are on the rise. Over 65% of North Americans are overweight, and by 2020 it is estimated that half of all North Americans will suffer from a preventable, chronic disease. Billions are spent every year on healthcare, with a large portion of that money coming from employers’ pockets for employee health insurance, medical leave, and sick days.

Chronic stress, poor dietary habits, and lack of exercise all significantly contribute to employee performance. Luckily, many of these costly, chronic ailments can be avoided with simple, preventative care for employees.

 

Our world makes it really hard to keep healthy, stay in shape and look after ourselves.

With over-processed, preservative and additive-filled, calorie and sugar-laden foods that don’t even resemble the real thing loading down our grocery store and pantry shelves, it sometimes feels impossible to keep track of what’s supposed to be good for us.

We’ve lost touch with what real food is, what real nutrition is - instead we fill ourselves with empty calories and try to keep healthy with pills and powders. Then, we wonder why our mindset, health and happiness has plummeted.

Pressure, stress, and time constraints make it so much easier just to grab a prepared convenience meal or take-out, instead of enjoying natural, healthy food. (We just don’t have the time!)

...It’s enough to make people want to just give up or not try!

But there is a better way.

Regaining control of our body and mindset is possible.

Improving our health and giving our body a fighting chance is possible.

Transforming from the inside out is possible.

...It's all about Mindset

It's a proven fact - the people who manage to lose their excess weight and keep it off long term are those who change their lifestyle for good, and a super-important part of that is changing your mindset, your attitude towards nutrition, eating and healthy living.

 

It’s about digging deep into stress management, emotional eating, and self-care.

Health & Lifestyle Coaching

How can I improve the physical and financial health of your company?

Corporate health and wellness programs need not be complicated, nor a huge investment.  Our current weight loss and health care model is clearly not working.  Just look around.  My program is unique because it is a positive, personal, and fulfilling experience.  I provide non-conventional food and health education that wasn't taught to us.  More importantly, I empower, inspire and motivate people to respect and nourish their bodies, which is completely the opposite of the dieting paradigm in today’s society.  I prove that eating MORE real, delicious, whole plant foods mends our relationship with ourselves and our bodies.   This coaching experience changes minds and lives, and will enhance and compliment any already existing wellness program that you may have.

Current wellness trends show a need for a more personalized approach to employee health.  Many companies are providing on-site health coaches once a week, or every other week (time determined by company size) to work one-on-one with interested employees.  This greatly benefits the employee seeking the knowledge and support to change their lifestyle for the better.

How Health & Lifestyle Coaching benefits your business:

  • You would be a progressive leader in a more personal and transformational corporate wellness paradigm
  • Attract health conscious recruits (who tend to be more productive, with less healthcare costs)
  • Create a healthier corporate culture, that encourages and unlocks employee potential
  • Lower healthcare costs as people are empowered to make choices that support their health and total well-being.
  • Empowered, vibrant, confident and productive employees.

Please contact me to discuss the specific needs at your workplace. My mission is to influence your employees in such a way that they WANT to change their behaviors and lifestyle, for good.

How will hiring a Health Coach benefit this organization?

Global rates of obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases are on the rise. Over 65% of North Americans are overweight, and by 2020 it is estimated that half of all North Americans will suffer from a preventable, chronic disease. The primary cause for the trillions every year on healthcare is stress and food related.  The impact of a large portion of that money is coming from employers’ pockets for employee health insurance, medical leave, and sick days.

Chronic stress, poor dietary habits, and lack of exercise all significantly contribute to employee performance. Luckily, many of these costly, chronic ailments can be avoided with simple, preventative care for employees.

Hiring a Health Coach for your company is a cost-effective solution to improve employee health and morale while decreasing your organization’s health-related costs. By working with a Health Coach, employees will learn how to make better food and lifestyle choices, improving their physical and mental well-being. In return, your organization will see an increase in employee engagement and productivity, and a decrease in employee stress and absenteeism.

What is a Health Coach?

A Health Coach is a professional guide and mentor who empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health and supports them in making sustainable lifestyle choices. Health Coaches do not prescribe one diet or one way of living. Rather, they help people develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for their bodies. Some common areas where a Health Coach can assist include weight management, food cravings, sleep, energy, digestion, stress, and time management.

What types of clients do I work with?

I work with a diverse range of clients including men, women, young professionals, corporate executives, retirees, athletes, and inactive or over-weight individuals. My philosophy is that there is no one way of eating or living that works for everyone, and consequently, I have had success working with people from all walks of life.

What are my professional credentials?

I am an experienced wellness professional trained in diet, lifestyle, and wellness coaching. I graduated as a Health Coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and am a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and am currently part of The Applied School of Functional Medicine certification.  In addition, I am also a Mindfulness Meditation teacher and Corporate Culture Consultant through the Barrett Values Center.

How soon will we see results?

Naturally, this will vary from person to person based on their current level of health and their willingness to participate. Nevertheless, even if the motivation isn’t there right away, that’s okay. I am skilled in inspiring clients to take action. My workshops, presentations, coaching sessions, and materials are interesting and engaging. By starting with small, achievable goals, employees will start seeing results rather quickly and will be motivated to move on to larger goals.

 

How much time will employees need to dedicate to this program?

That depends on your organization and the level of coaching you wish your employees to receive. My corporate wellness programs vary from the very basic – working during lunch breaks or scheduled times each month – to the most comprehensive where employees have access to support and information each week. Obviously, the more comprehensive the program is, the more time is required on a day to day basis. I will work with your organization to create the best corporate wellness format for your budget and your staff’s needs.

Are there different levels of health coaching to choose from?

Yes, there are three different levels, ranging from basic coaching to comprehensive corporate wellness. Which level you choose is entirely up to you, and I can help you assess which plan is the best fit for your company’s needs.

What if there are no serious health issues within the company? Will we still benefit from the program?

Yes! In fact, Health Coaches often work with clients who are generally healthy. Even these employees can benefit from health coaching as they may not be practicing nutrition and lifestyle habits that will ensure long-term health and vitality. Each participating employee will begin the program by filling out a Health History form so I can pinpoint any areas, obvious or not, where better health and lifestyle choices can be made.

Is the information discussed in one-on-one health coaching sessions kept confidential?

Absolutely. All of the information shared in individual sessions will remain completely confidential between the employee and me, the Health Coach.  I also offer VIP coaching for senior members of the organization.

How do we get started?

I am happy to answer any questions you may have about my services and look forward to setting you up with the perfect corporate wellness program right away!

Your business is not "one size fits all"...and neither is corporate wellness. The "health" of your organization is dependent on the "health and wellness" of your employees. How is your organization doing? Do you have a well workforce? Do you know what to look for or where to start? A free consultation with me can get you and your organization moving in the right direction. I will work alongside you to create a program that is effective, results driven and...you and your organization will have some fun along the way!
