Why Health Coaching?
To use an old analogy, the doctor gives the patient a fish so she can eat for a day, whereas the coach teaches the client to fish so she can eat for a lifetime.
Change is hard. Making lasting changes that improve your health can be even harder. One study found fewer than 5% of adults engage in the top health behaviours, and only 20% of adults are thriving.
Don't we all want to feel good, avoid chronic disease, build meaningful relationships, watch our children and grandchildren grow, perform well at work and have the energy to do all the things we love to do?
Health coaching is a personalised and collaborative approach to achieving your wellbeing goals. It is a partnership between you and Dr Ron Ehrlich, working together to navigate the path to a balanced and vibrant life.
