Health Coaching for Health Professionals

Training for Health Professionals

I specialise in delivering tailored health behaviour change workshops for medical and allied health practitioners, nurses, fitness professionals, businesses, fitness clubs and gyms.

I have worked for 16 years in health behaviour change as an Executive Health Coach, health presenter, and previously as the lead Health Coach for the NSW Government ‘Get Healthy Service’. I currently coach and train practitioners in health behaviour change and health coaching techniques.

Programs and workshops can be delivered on site, via webinar, or at a specific venue.

Content is tailored to the needs of the business, medical centre, community health centre, and hospital.

Topics can include:


Coaching Health Behaviour Change

  • Health behaviour change principles, models and techniques
  • Coaching approach and mindset
  • Positive psychology and appreciative inquiry
  • Example structure of a coaching session (tailored to the needs of clients)


Tailored Approaches to Support Health Behaviour Change

  • Assessing readiness to change behaviour/s
  • Stage matched interventions
  • Strategies to increase motivation to change


Motivational Interviewing

  • Spirit, principles, skills and processes
  • Addressing ‘sustain’ talk (the patient’s reasons for not changing their behaviours) and discord (disharmony in the relationship)


Determinants of Health Change

  • Assessing and planning for barriers and enhancing facilitators of health change


Supporting Patients to Set Goals and Take Action

  • Setting of SMART goals
  • Developing an action plan for 1-2 SMART goals
