What does a coach do?

The goal of a coach is to empower their clients to create new lifelong habits by investigating the psychology and root causes behind the issues they are facing that prevent change. The relationship between that of the life coach and the client is one that gives power to the client and motivates them make their own positive health choices. This is achieved through mentoring and support in the areas of nutrition, and wellness.
