Wellness Coaching 

Women TalkingHelping You Achieve Your Best

Professional coaches help athletes, sports teams and executives perform at their best. Now, certified wellness coaches at MyMichigan Medical Center Midland offer personalized coaching for the rest of us who want to make lasting improvements in our overall health and well-being.

Our Wellness Coaching program is unique because it brings diabetes self-management and empowerment to people living with the disease. 

The goal of this program is to encourage personal responsibility, deep thinking, self-discovery and personal effectiveness to help participants achieve their optimal health. This one-on-one process includes a well-being assessment, an initial coaching session and bi-weekly follow-up sessions to review progress toward vision and goals.

The process of Wellness Coaching moves through several stages which can take place in person or over the phone:

1. The client provides background information through a well-being assessment prior to the first visit so that the coach and client are well informed on the key issues, including medical considerations.

2. During the first 60-90 minute coaching session, the client's priorities are reviewed and a personal wellness plan is developed, including a vision, three-month goals and the first week's goals.

3. Subsequent 30-minute coaching sessions take place bi-weekly. The coach and client review the progress toward the vision and goals, explore and resolve ambivalence, learn something new, and then agree on a set of goals for the following week.

4. By the end of three months, the client can most often reach 70 percent or more of their three-month goals and feel energized and confident to embark on new areas with or without a coach.

Having a coach is particularly powerful when you decide to fully commit to making significant changes in one or more areas of your life. The cost of this three-month personalized coaching program is $250. For more information or to schedule coaching, call the MyMichigan Medical Center Midland Diabetes Center at (989) 839-3123.
