What is Medical Coaching?

Medical Coaching is an advanced area of health and wellness coaching which supports you when you are facing a health-related challenge. It enables you to grow, find meaning and develop emotional and mental coping strategies during a medical crisis and/or challenge. Medical Coaching helps you gain personal insights and initiate actions that will enable happiness and well-being by addressing all aspects of your life including the symptoms of disease.

Here are just a few examples of areas where Medical Coaching may help you:

  • A life-changing medical diagnosis such as Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue
  • A long-term medical condition such as diabetes
  • An accident or a trauma
  • Any surgery, including medical, dental surgery or transplant surgery
  • Heart attack, coronary heart disease and stroke
  • Self-care such as stress management, weight management and smoking cessation
  • Fertility, pregnancy, antenatal and postnatal issues
  • Migraine, back pain, neck pain, chronic pain
  • Bereavement, grief and end of life situations

Medical Coaching can also help you if you are caring for someone who is suffering a medical crisis – perhaps you caring for a loved one, or perhaps you are a medical professional caring for patients on a daily basis.
