What do I talk about in my next wellness coaching session with Maria?

by Maria Koropecky, Spiritual Wellness Coach.

Whether you’ve been working with a wellness coach for several months or if you’re about to have your first ever coaching session, sometimes it’s challenging to find a topic to talk about.

When "I" is replaced with "we" even illness becomes wellness.

Working with a wellness coach can certainly be a life changing investment! In order to get the most value during your time with your wellness coach, it’s important to show up prepared and ready to go, and part of that includes having a topic to talk about.

If you’re having trouble answering the question, “What do you want to talk about today?” take a moment to ask yourself some questions before your coaching call to get your mind in gear. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Is there a recent positive experience you’d like to share — maybe something to celebrate?
  2. Is there a recent negative experience that you’d like to reframe?
  3. Did you take the action steps that you talked about during your previous coaching session?
  4. Have any questions come up for you during the past week that you’d like to ask?
  5. Have you had any insights and aha moments?

Hopefully, these five questions will be enough to inspire an animated and productive coaching conversation with your wellness coach, but if not, and you’re still asking yourself, “What am I going to talk about in my next wellness coaching session?” I’ve come up with a list of topics for you to choose from.

Here are some wellness coaching topic ideas:

Rest & Relaxation

“I’d like to sleep better.”

“I’m having trouble coping with stress and I’d like to find better ways to manage stress and relax.”

“I’d like to explore some ways to manage my anxiety.”

“I’d like to add meditation to my morning routine.”

“I’d like to figure out ways to better manage my pain and/or chronic illness.”

“I’d like to go on a vacation soon and I’d like to plan something really special.”

Healthier Lifestyle Choices

“I’d like to make significant changes in my life starting with my health.”

“I’d like to take a break from my digital devices.”

“I’d like to quit smoking cigarettes.”

“I’d like to quit drinking alcohol.”

“I’d like to clear some clutter in my house.”

“I’m feeling stuck in life and I don’t know what to do next.”

Relationships

“I’d like to heal my broken heart.”

“I’d like to have a better relationship with my partner and family.”

“I’ve just moved to Victoria (or another new city) and I’d like to meet some new people and make some new friends.

Aging Gracefully

“I have a big event coming up (like a milestone birthday, class reunion, wedding, etc.,) and I’d like to look and feel my best.”

“I’d like to balance my hormones and manage my PMS, Peri-menopausal or Menopausal symptoms.”

“I’d like to have clear skin on my face and body.”

“I’d like to have a healthy baby.”

“I’ve seen other people suffer in their senior years and I don’t want to be in the same boat. It’s up to me to take charge of my health now so that I can enjoy my life to the fullest and age gracefully.”

Fitness & Nutrition

“I need to make better choices in regards to what I eat.”

“I’d like to add exercise to my daily or weekly schedule.”

“I’d like to lose weight at a healthy pace.”

“I’m planning to run in a 5K charity event or marathon.”

“I’m recovering from a car accident or sports injury and would like to feel better.”

Career

“I’d like to get along better with my co-workers.

“I travel a lot for work and I’d like to maintain a healthy lifestyle even while I’m on the road.”

“I’m giving a presentation at work and would like it to go smoothly.”

“I’m thinking about changing careers or going back to school.”

“I’m thinking about becoming a wellness coach myself.”

“I’d like to start a workplace wellness program at the office.”

Do any of these ideas jump out at you? With coaching, whatever you talk about is up to you, the client.

As a wellness coach and spa therapist, I help my clients relax and have piece of mind and all of these topic ideas relate to managing stress in some way.

If any of these wellness coaching topics resonate with you, I encourage you to explore them in your upcoming coaching conversations and see where they take you. They just might hold some missing pieces to the puzzle you’re working on.

Not surprising.

I’m noticing that most people, including me, tolerate their stress symptoms and keep going as if “not feeling great” is normal. It’s like we’re used to our headaches and sleepless nights and allergies and tense relationships and irritability and however else stress shows up for us. It’s just the same old, same old stress everyday.

I believe high levels of stress are lurking behind the scenes of many, if not all, illnesses, and chronic stress can lead to illness and disease.

The good news is, relaxation is the antidote to stress and practicing self-care is a big part of living a healthy lifestyle.

We can all make small lifestyle changes today – like quitting smoking, exercising more, fueling the body with more nutritious food, getting regular massages, establishing healthy sleep habits, speaking our truth, and working with a wellness coach – that will save everyone tremendous expense and suffering and can prevent chronic illnesses from showing up in the first place.

If you’re noticing how stress is affecting your own health and you want to do something about it before it gets any worse, please email me, Maria. I might be able to help you.

As a coach, healer, and author, I show people who are struggling with stress, how to relax and have peace of mind and I’d be happy to be of service to you. We have options!

Consider Hiring Me As Your Wellness Coach

Coaching allows us to become the best version of ourselves. It’s also a safe place for people to express themselves which is highly restorative.

Expressing your feelings out loud to a coach can help you attain catharsis and release.

“When you air your feelings, you lessen their pent-up energy. It’s like releasing air from a too-full balloon. Discussing your feelings gives you insights into the reasons for your upset, and can trigger epiphanies about solutions,”
~ Doreen Virtue & Grant Virtue, Angels of Abundance.

The above quote sums up the beauty of coaching in a nutshell.

With my thoughtful questions and active listening skills, I’ll help you, either in a group or one to one,

  • get clarity about where you’re heading,
  • uncover what matters most to you so you focus more on your goals and not distractions,
  • clear out the blocks that may be in the way,
