You may be wondering, what is at the heart of effective Wellness Coaching? Great communication skills are at the heart of effective wellness coaching. A skilled wellness coach understands and investigates the relationship between how people think and communicate. These top level coaches have an awareness of the relationship between language patterns and behavior. Spencer Institute Certified Wellness Coaches are trained to track the assumptions and thinking processes of the client reflected in their use of language. Being able to track the clients beliefs, behaviors and metaphors of life enable the wellness coach to ask appropriate and pertinent questions of the client. This facilitates a deep self-exploration for the client that often leads to subtle shifts in the coaching client's awareness. This often makes all the difference in making significant progress towards desired health and wellness outcomes.
