Coaching Manifesto

Health, manifestation, mindset, wellness and life coaching is a holistic approach to looking after your health and wellbeing  – mind, body and soul. 

We are not doctors or dieticians. We are not diagnosing our clients with medical conditions. We are not telling anyone what tablet or treatment is miraculously going to work for them. We do not need to claim to treat, diagnose or cure. 

That is not our role in the puzzle. That is not where our value lies. 

We are realistic, and therefore provide realistic, long-lasting transformation solutions. We help provide a lifestyle transformation tailored to what a client is struggling with.  We are here to partner with someone to explore and investigate the health and wellbeing energetics that are true for them and help them practice radical self-care. 

As coaches, we sit by our clients’ side to help them find the needle-movers in their own transformation path. Yes, we can help share ideas. But we do not dictate what our clients do. We are here to help them grasp the fundamentals of health and wellness and find what is true for them and their body. 

You don’t need to be a doctor, a naturopath or a nutritionist to help people transform their health. But it just so happens that we have specialists with psychology, exercise, nutrition and wellness, within their tool kit. So High Achievers Coaching is truly holistic.

Get your transformation moving

As a Health Coach, we are looking at getting all of our client’s basic energy systems optimized, helping them build solid health foundations, like:

  • Moving your body — This could include stretching, walking, body weight training, cardio, cycling, strength training, swimming, running, yoga. What do you do to move your body? We can design exercise programmes, catering for different levels of fitness and experience.

  • Fuelling your body with vegetables and nutrients— We can encourage our clients to explore and experiment with all different diets, using principles like loading up on the ‘good stuff’ like vegetables. We are can provide advice and supply nutrition or diet plans. We also support our clients to explore what works for their own body, with a focus on ADDING in as much nutrition as possible.
  • Hydration — Do you honestly drink enough water every day? You are not alone if you struggle with this, as being dehydrated is common. We encourage clients to embed simple practices that make it easy to remember to drink water.
  • Tools to destress — Having stress in our lives is not bad, it is natural and normal. Not being able to switch off from it is what is bad. Do you have times in your life when you are doing nothing? Do you have time for activities that bring you pleasure and joy? Do they exist in your life?

  • Purpose and manifestation – Do you have a direction in life or do you go from crisis to crisis? Do your never achieve your dreams? We support our clients in manifesting their dreams into reality. By having a clear vision and focusing on it through a variety of manifestation methods, the aim is to attract your dream body, health, attitude and lifestyle into your life.
  • Connections — Do you have a couple of core relationships where you feel you can share your truth and be yourself? Do you spend outdoors to improve your self-esteem, relieve stress, interact with other and feel at one with nature?  
  • Quality sleep — Are you sleeping soundly? Do you wake up feeling refreshed? If not, does your evening routine need to change? Do we need to cut back on snacking in the evening? How we sleep affects everything. So if you are not sleeping, then in coaching we can devote some energy to changing that. 
  • Breathing, mindfulness and meditation techniques — This is a big part of de-stress routines, includes mindfulness of breathing, loving kindness meditation, body scanning or tension release, and qigong, tai chi, or pranayama exercises.  
  • Stretching and myofascial release — It is not commonly know that stretching and myofascial release offers a host of benefits to your health and well-being, including decreasing the overall effects of stress on the body, help your body better fight infection, and improves joint range of motion. Have you used foam rollers, tennis balls, golf balls, frozen water bottle, sticks, walls or gravity to aid with release? Self myofascial release techniques are easier than you think!

 Lasting transformation is at the heart of health coaching

Just because you can find answers to your health problems online, does not mean this will be the best solution. If we pay cheap for quick answers that promise the earth, we get cheap, short-lived results.

Health Coaches are not that. We are not into quick fixes. At High Achievers Coaching we want you to transform your life, once and for all.  

We start by focusing on the basics. It is in the basics that lasting transformation lies. And if you focus on the advanced things when people don’t have the basics in place, it gets way too overwhelming, too fast!

Bio individuality is the basis of health coaching

While getting these basics established, we work alongside our clients, inspiring and encouraging self-reflection, self-discovery, self-care, and self-responsibility around these health foundations.  

Health Coaching is truly a bio-individuality relationship, as not one size fits all. The coach works with the client to explore what might be true for them. We are there to help our clients tune in to what THEIR body and mind needs.  

That could be a combination of finding a diet that works for them, finding the exercise routine that works for them, and finding the stress-management that works for them.

It is going to be a journey, too. Together, the coach and the client are focusing in on the basics and advancing on from them. 

Sometimes we shine a spotlight on one area of our health, e.g. nutrition or walking every day or working through challenges by writing in our journal or drinking a glass of water on rising .

Honouring bio individuality is essential, too, because we can do all the “right” things, and tick all the “right” boxes, but if we are not taking time to check in with ourselves and how we are feeling and what we are needing, The outcome is very different. We do not want to be permanently functioning on burnout and overwhelm, being inefficient and ineffective.

This is why we guide our clients to practice self-reflection — to ensure they do what is true for THEM and their body, right now, and what works for their life.

We inspire our clients to devote themselves to their health for a time

For me, the outcome of working with a health coach is that you don’t just know the fundamental pillars of good health; you are living and breathing them in your daily life. 

After all, we can all Google the basics or buy and read a book, but are we DOING those things we’re learning about? Probably not!

By providing accountability, support, a sounding board, powerful questioning, and a healthy resource, health coaching is all about getting your self-care foundations rock-solid and your energy systems humming along — on a physical, mental, emotional, spiritual level.

And if any thoughts/behaviours/habits are in the way a health coach will support you through that. Habit change is a crucial part of the journey.  

To do that is probably going to take 180 days minimum. After all, we have had those sabotaging habits for some time. So, its going to take time to get rid of them, once and for all. We’re not talking about quick detoxes to lose some weight. Or a generic list of routines to follow. We’re cultivating real, sustainable lifestyle changes that are person for you. 

Ultimately, though, health coaching will help you go from “I know what to do, but I’m not doing it” to actually doing it. It will help you go from “My doctor told me to make this change” to “I’m loving this new healthy lifestyle with ease” and “I know what to do, when, and I know it feels right for me.”

Better health outcomes

Clearly, none of this is about diagnosing, but with all these basics more firmly in place, whenever our clients are unwell, they can look their doctor in the eye and say with confidence: 

  • I move my body regularly
  • I eat a balance diet
  • I drink a lot of water
  • I have tools to destress
  • I feel empowered
  • I have more confidence
  • I am full of energy
  • I am thankful for the amazing life that I have
  • And so on

Health as a movement

As a collective, it is time to feel empowered in our own connection to our bodies, minds and health.  

Google the most important thing in life. And the top answer you will get is HEALTH. It is the single most important part of our existence. Without good health, our lives can be cut short.

This is what inspired me to do the work that I do, so that I can help as many people as I can live longer, happier, more fulfilling lives. 

Because health coaching is a potent, integral part of the health puzzle. No other modality supports foundational transformation by getting all of your energy systems working together in synergy, optimising your health energizes and tuning your lifestyle to what works for you. 

Learning to take care of our own health and not just understanding our own personal power in health and healing — but living it — is powerful. 

From there, you can operate as your highest self for humanity. Then you do the same in your business, within your family, and your community.  And when the world is built on circles of communities with healthy bodies and mindsets, we are all stronger together for it. 

And this why I am a health coach.
