Wellness Coach Deborah Kesten explains the concept of wellness coaching.
Wellness coaching is a new field and wellness coaching specifically works with health professionals who are highly skilled and trained, and then gives them additional skills to work with people to help them achieve and transform whatever health problem they may have, and that means that a health professional is working with somebody to help them prevent, halt, manage or reverse heart disease, in my case and my husband Larry Scherwitz’s case, heart disease and obesity, overeating, overweight, and obesity.
And another area in which I specialize, and so does Larry, is also to bring balance, physical, emotional, spiritual, and social balance into one’s life, whether that be through excess stress, whether that be through imbalanced hormones, imbalanced diet, imbalanced whatever, to help people balance their life, and in turn, their wellness and their weight and heart health.
