What is Wellness Coaching?

As a nurse, wellness coach, massage therapist, and parent, I believe families need more support now than ever to live healthy, joyful lives. With so much information to navigate and so many threats- both real and perceived- to our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical health and well-being, it’s no wonder many of us feel overwhelmed, anxious, fearful, and disconnected.

Here’s what I know:

You want a healthy family, healthy home and healthy children. You want to feel energized, alive, connected, and joyful.  And you don’t want to do it alone.

You don’t have to.

Wellness Coaching is a partnership to navigate the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Together we’ll discover and embrace your very best in your body and life in this moment- this very real, often messy, totally incredible moment.

Wellness Coaching is not a prescribed regimen of “do this, don’t do that.”  It’s not rules, restrictions, judgement, shame, or rigid living.

Coaching is about discovery, connection, and gaining the skills to navigate family life with greater ease and vitality. It’s about making connections between your environment and it’s impact on your health and well-being.  Wellness Coaching is support in navigating the healthiest products for your home and family. It’s about supporting and enhancing your body’s ability to detoxify naturally with food and relaxation practices. It’s about embracing your vulnerabilities to move towards the healthy life you want for yourself and your family. It’s about living well.

What happens in a coaching session?

We will begin right where you are.  Maybe you know what you want to work on. Maybe you just know something needs to change.  Either way, we’ll begin with a Discovery Session to get clear on what you want and where we’re headed.

Together we will create a Wellness Map to guide us towards your healthiest life.  We may use tools such as visualization, body awareness, and mindfulness practices to support our work together. With Ongoing Support we’ll work together through the inevitable challenges that get in the way of creating new habits in your lifestyle.  I’ll be cheering you on every step of the way. You go, you.

Brandie is able to help me focus on an issue or struggle in my life, label it, and set an intention. I walk away from my sessions always feeling more clear about my struggle and with a plan. My husband sees how our entire family benefits and encourages me to make working with Brandie a regular part of my life. As a wife, mother of three young children, and small business owner, the level of stress I feel can be overwhelming. My coaching and massage sessions help me clarify the current issue, focus on facing it in a healthy way and move forward with an intention.
