At Renew’d For Life we practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that we look at how all areas of the person’s life are connected. Does stress on job or in your relationship(s) cause overeating? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of connected life affect health as a whole. We work with clients to get in touch with their body’s needs because we understand that life happens, and needs will change. We want to equip people with the self-awareness to make the best decisions in any given circumstance. We believe each person is fully capable of making well-informed decisions as their own expert, not the latest magazine article or fad diet book. We use assessment tools to assist the client to define what they value most. We’ll use these visions to motivate specific goals that bring them closer to where they want to be. As a health and wellness coach, we will not dictate a diet, but together we will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback. Together we¿ll co-create your health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable objectives, so you know exactly what you’re working toward.
