COUPLES WELLNESS COACHING
Improve your health and wellbeing – together
Is it time for change? Time to take action?
- Break out of meal ruts, eat healthier new foods and discover new ways of cooking?
- Gain clarity on the right foods to eat – for both of you?
- Tackle that slow, steady, weight gain together?
- Get motivated to move in ways you enjoy?
- Learn some simple stress/anxiety reduction techniques?
- Explore whether alcohol plays too big a part in your relationship?
- Stop worrying about what older age may bring?
Investing in your ‘wellbeing pension’ is a great thing to do together, but media messaging can be overwhelming. Coaching enables you to discover what will actually work, now, for you and your partner – whether you’ve been together a long time, or are starting a new relationship and wanting good habits from the beginning.

Need more persuading?
The support of a partner at home can make all the difference to a woman succeeding in her efforts to become healthier or lose weight. Research from 2014 found that if a woman’s efforts to achieve healthy eating are undermined at home by spouses and family members, she is likely to gain, rather than lose, weight. It is also known that working on the fitness of both partners together acheives the best results.
I have had many female clients in mid-life or older who really want to make changes, but find the partners they look after, do not. This holds them back, they are torn. They are less likely to succeed. This is a generation thing, in younger couples usually now there are more equal roles.
Many women would not agree with this, but in 1 way I think we women are lucky to go through the mid-life transition. It wakes many of us up to our changing bodies, to our ageing. It demands we pay attention, and often acts as a prompt to begin better self-care. Men don’t have this call to wake up – which means either they might do nothing and believe they need to do nothing, or sadly it takes a health scare to wake them up.
If you are reading this and wishing that your partner would sign up with you, yet know they won’t, then persuade them to try 1 session only. Then let’s take it from there.

HOW WE WOULD WORK TOGETHER
There is no set programme, because this is about you both. What do you want, and need, to get from this coaching?
First we would have an asessment session. We need to get to know each other, be really clear why you are both here, what your joint goals are.
After this I recommend booking a block of 6 x 1 hour sessions, but am flexible on this. As a guide, an hour every other week tends to work well.
We take things at your pace, this is about being really careful not to overwhelm. Small, achieveable, goals and actions. And a lot of self-compassion.
(Government guidelines permitting, and local to Newton Abbot, Devon)

Walk and talk
