Listen in on a conversation with Audiologist and Health Coach Beth Knott. Beth is a veteran audiologist who became enamored with helping her clients become better versions of themselves. If you are a health care provider or someone who feels called to help others this episode of the Healthcare Insights in Northwest North Carolina podcast will demystify the process of becoming a health and wellness coach and how coaching concepts such as motivational interviewing for lifestyle modification can help you improve your practice.
We hear the term health coach more and more these days so I wanted to explore the role of the health coach in this blog post. A health coach is a coach for people who want to or who are contemplating making behavioral changes that result in a healthier lifestyle. A health coach is a type of healthcare extender trained to help others set goals and be accountable for themselves as they begin a journey to improve their overall health and quality of life.
