Using Your Strengths to Propel Your Future

Through Wellness Coaching you will identify your wellness priorities while working one-on-one with the University of Louisville's Wellness Coach Coordinator.  Your coach will use behavior change tools to empower you to take charge, connect with your motivators, and learn goal setting strategies.  Your coach comes to you at your time preference or can arrange a meeting place outside of your work environment.


What is Coaching?

Coaching:

  • Creates a powerful partnership between client and the coach
  • Provides support, guidance, and encouragement; free of judgment
  • Facilitates change by focusing on your past successes and strengths.

Sessions usually last 30-60 minutes and are encouraged to be scheduled on a weekly or bi-weekly basis for optimal success either in person or by telephone. Sessions are provided FREE of cost to Get Healthy Now participants. This service typically ranges in cost from $60- $90/hour.
