What is Wellness Coaching?

Wellness coaching is designed to help U of A students improve their lifestyle behaviors so that they are living well in a conscious and mindful way. Wellness coaches are professional certified health educators who will help you identify your strengths and plan specific changes you want to make to improve your academic performance and overall satisfaction with life.

During coaching sessions you will:

  • Establish an alliance of support and accountability with your coach
  • Identify the priority areas you want to change
  • Receive referrals to other campus resources if appropriate (*Wellness coaching does NOT include psychological assessment, counseling, or therapy, fitness evaluation or personal training, nutrition counseling, or medical care)
  • Practice basic anxiety reducing and centering techniques
  • Engage in assertiveness and resilience skill training
  • Create and successfully implement your personal behavior change plan
