Life coaching creates empowerment in whatever is going on in your life and helps you be proactive, clear away angst and drama, and give you the tools to make healthy choices. When life coaching is integrated with wellness coaching, one can easily expect a multiplier effect on the benefits.
In a study published in The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences in December 2009, 20 breast cancer survivors, seven prostate cancer survivors and three colorectal cancer survivors participated in six sessions of wellness coaching over a three-month period. Participants showed various improvements, including decreased depression and anxiety, increased physical activity, better motivation and a healthier diet.
Other studies have indicated that coaches can help patients communicate better with their doctors about pain issues, among other healthy behavior changes. And these positive changes were sustained more than a year later.
