Wellness coaching is an emerging and vibrant area of healthcare. It takes healing beyond the curing of symptoms and empowers clients to take their health back into their own hands. This book provides therapists with the knowledge and skills to rejuvenate their therapeutic practice by incorporating wellness coaching techniques into their range of services.
Laurel Alexander redefines wellness as an integrated lifestyle and mindset process and shows that wellness coaching can be a profound and practical way to help clients make meaningful changes to their health and outlook. The book offers a wellness coaching toolbox, explaining key skills such as how to create an organic personal wellness plan, how to build client rapport and give constructive feedback, and how to apply different coaching models effectively. Practical steps and examples make it easy for any therapist or counsellor to pick up the reins of wellness coaching for themselves. Exciting new developments such as wellness diagnostic services, preventative healthcare, customised treatments and DIY healthcare are explored.
With shrewd advice and useful insights, this book is an essential resource for complementary therapists and counsellors looking to update their existing practice and tap into the rapidly expanding wellness market.

"There is rarely one route into, and out of, wellness. There are often several contributing factors including lifestyle and mindset. We also need to bear in mind that wellness may not mean "no disease" or "less pain". It may mean pathways of acceptance or transition."
