Wellness Coaching

Wellness coaching is another holistic health option available to Reed students. This kind of meeting is less formal than a typical counseling session and is intended to help students envision and improve their overall health. Discussions focus on areas of desired improvement and goals associated with these areas. The wellness coach helps students to develop an individual plan to reach goals and stay motivated when normal distractions and barriers arise.

Topics that might be addressed in wellness coaching include: healthy eating, physical activity, relationship issues, and stress management. Using the tenets of motivational interviewing as well as other behavioral health research, wellness coaching focuses on students' strengths and from there, helps build bridges to a healthier future.
