Health & Wellbeing Coaches

Health & Wellbeing Coach

Our Health & Wellbeing Coaches support people in taking proactive steps to improve the way they manage their health, based on what matters to them. They help people develop their knowledge, skills and confidence regarding their health and care, and support them in making changes in health-related behaviours. Health & Wellbeing Coaches do this by guiding and motivating people through multiple sessions to identify their needs and set goals for themselves. They also provide access to interventions such as self-management education and peer support.
