Many of your patients would benefit from a sustainable behavior change with more exercise, healthier nutrition and better stress management. Often it remains with your recommendation, because the implementation together with patients is beyond your ability.
A personal health coaching closes this gap. I accompany your patients towards a healthy lifestyle with scientifically based methods.
The coaching starts with a health analysis. Based on this, intervention methods are specified that are tailored to the individual and personal needs of the patient.
The areas in which I offer health and prevention coaching can be found here.
Personal health coaching is a new therapy method in Switzerland and was developed at the University of Basel. Information on the CAS.
