The 18th to 22nd September is National Health Coach Awareness Week. Across the country there is a spotlight on the coaching role, which is dedicated to helping people have more choice and control over their health and really making a difference to people’s quality of life.
The City & Hackney Health Coach team, part of your local GP surgery and the Shoreditch Trust, are experienced in supporting people to take small steps toward better health and wellbeing, find information, services and activities and tackle obstacles along the way.
If you’re struggling or feeling alone with a health issue, whether that’s diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, anxiety, low mood, chronic pain or another health condition, coaching can help you to take some time for yourself, to decide what matters to you and to plan important life changes.
Health Coaches and local residents who have used the service talk about their experiences:
“I love helping people to improve their life situations and live to the fullest potential. Through coaching I see people grow in confidence and knowledge to manage their health condition and support others who are going through the same thing.” Shanaz Begum, Health Coach Team Lead
"Coaching is very rewarding. I get to be a part of the journey and see the positive impact that clients get through interacting with others." Alea Ismail, Health Coach, on the team's new Group Coaching offer.
