Health Coaching Helps Patients Help Themselves

Health coaches are rapidly becoming an integral part of the health landscape. A recent study estimates that around 110,000 licensed health coaches are currently practicing, and the industry of coaching is now worth an estimated six billion dollars. More importantly, health coaches have been shown to be valuable parts of a collaborative care team, doing the hands-on work of guiding patients through the sometimes difficult journey of sustainable behavior change. How does a clinician go about getting a health coach, and how can having a trained health coach help your practice?

In the following video, Functional Medicine Coaching Academy (FMCA) co-founder Sandra Scheinbaum, PhD, discusses the benefits of health coaches for both clinicians and for patients.
