What are the benefits of holistic medical coaching?
I facilitate shared decision-making among physician, patient, and caregiver.
BUT I AM NOT YOUR PHYSICIAN . . . I’m your coach! With advanced illness, the last thing you need is another physician.
- I don’t work with your doctor, I work for your best interest.
- I understand doctor talk and explain what it means to you.
- I discuss the consequences of medical decisions.
- I support your innate ability to feel well without medicine.
- I keep it real by not providing false hope.
Essential Rules of Coaching:
- Listen to your story
- Clarify your thinking
- Feel your emotions
- Offer straight-talk / accountability
- Set expectations / avoid pitfalls
- Create new habits / adaptation
- Incorporate self into the goal
