Health Coaching

What is health coaching?


Managing life with a health condition is not always easy. Understanding and keeping track of medications, treatments, tests, and appointments with healthcare professionals are important, but health conditions also affect our emotions, social life, hobbies, and day-to-day routines at home.

Clinical healthcare professionals, like doctors and nurses, can be really important to help us manage the medical aspects of our health, and health coaches can help us manage the emotional and practical impact in our day-to-day life.

Help & Care’s health coaches can support people living with a health condition to feel more confident. We have lots of experience on the following subjects:

  • Managing pain and fatigue
  • Preparing for appointments
  • Accessing information to understand conditions and treatments
  • Feeling more confident getting out and about
  • Building a network of support around you

MY Health My Way service

‘My Health My Way’ is a service to help you develop the confidence, knowledge and skills to tackle symptoms such as immobility, breathlessness, anxiety or daily pain.

If you join the programme you will be given personalised support from a dedicated health coach who will guide you to take the steps that will make a difference to you.  Thousands of other people like you have been supported in this way.

In addition to the regular support you will receive face-to-face, online and over the phone, you will also be invited onto a six-week structured course of support, where you will be taught specific skills and in which you can collaborate with other people with similar challenges to you. 

The role of the coach is purely to support you to make a difference to your health. They are not doctors or nurses but they will work with you alongside the medical care you receive from your health team.

We look forward to supporting you to develop your health in your way regardless of your health condition.

Karen’s journey with My Health My Way

Karen was living a very muddled life due to her long term and mental health conditions. Although she was trying hard to cope with it and took all her medications, she lacked confidence and she had no real direction, or any understanding of how to change or improve her situation. When she heard about our health coaching service “My Health My Way” from her doctor, she decided to give it a try.Read more.
