Benefits of Wellness Coaching
Your wellness coach will help you:

Group Wellness Coaching
Through group wellness coaching sessions, students have the opportunity to work through shared wellness concerns and experiences in an open and supportive environment. Group coaching can also help participants identify challenges, resolve barriers, and integrate new knowledge and perspectives into their mindsets. The group coaching approach equips students with skills, strategies, and a sense of community related to their goals. During these sessions, we will work together to design and implement wellness action plans, along with goals to support students in enhancing their well-being.
