Wellness coaching is a holistic approach to examining how personal wellbeing interacts with one's values, goals and motivations. Wellness coaching could be a good fit if you are considering changes to optimize your personal health and wellness, or looking to positively shift certain aspects of your life. 

Coaching topics include:

Wellness coaching could also be a good fit if you are simply feeling stuck and would like to work through barriers to achievement and wellbeing.

How does it work?

Wellness coaching uses a person’s own motivations and strengths and supports behavior change(s) through a collaborative, non-judgmental partnership. Wellness coaches work with students to help them set and achieve wellness goals, balance dimensions of health and wellness, and learn resilience and coping skills for a well life.

Coaches include Wolverine Wellness and broader Student Life staff from around campus. The initial general wellness coaching session is a 60 minutes and follow-up sessions are scheduled as needed. Wellness coaching for alcohol and other drugs’ first session is 90 minutes and the second session, 2-4 weeks after the first, is 60 minutes.

Quotes from Wellness Coaching Clients:

“I believe that wellness is a more essential part of my everyday life and I know that I can have a more productive and successful experience at U of M if I invest time and energy into strategies that enhance wellness.”

“Articulating my issues and goals with someone else who isn't living your life is very eye opening. Too often, I get stuck in my own mind and it takes someone from the outside to help put things into perspective. Also, this has helped me create structure and plan my next steps so that I can head in the direction I want to be headed in.”

 “This is a good opportunity to work on myself and try and learn what makes me happy and how I can ensure my mental and physical wellness will be good enough to allow me to make difficult decisions for myself in the future.
