Choosing Your Health Coach

Corporate health coaching can indeed offer numerous benefits to both employers and employees, but once you decide to make the investment how do you choose the right coach?

To help get you started we’ve put together a few hints and tips to consider:


Ensure that the health coach you hire is qualified and experienced. Look for certifications and credentials that demonstrate their expertise in the field. The website provides a list of certified health coaches.


A good health coach will seek to understand your business and its people, aiming to work in partnership with your organisation. Look for someone who can align their approach with your company’s culture and values.


Determine the specific areas you want the health coach to concentrate on. Common focus areas include stress management, nutrition, exercise, sleep, and mental well-being. Collaborate with the coach to develop a customized plan tailored to your employees’ needs.


Your coach may offer individual coaching sessions, group workshops, or a combination of both. Discuss the various methods available and decide what works best for your employees and budget to maximise your return on investment.


Explore different health coaches, and their approaches to find one that aligns with your company’s needs and values, considering their understanding of your sector and the demographic of your workforce.


Clearly articulate what you aim to achieve through the health coaching programme. This will enable the coach to develop a plan that aligns with your objectives and the time spent in their achievement.


Make sure your health coach can support your employees in their health improvement efforts by offering necessary resources that are easily accessible.
