Thank you for your interest in working with Attain Health. We look forward to partnering with you to actualize your best vision of health.
You can schedule your first appointment with the integrative health coach (IHC) at your earliest convience. The first session may run up to an hour, because we will be reviewing the Attain Health program, questions you may have as well as beginning to discuss your vision for working with us. Subsequent sessions will be 20-30 mins in duration. Following your first IHC session, you will meet with the strength and conditioning coach for a movement assessment. If you need to reschedule any session, please try to let us know 24 hours in advance. We understand that life with CF is unpredicatable, but when possible we appreciate the notice.
After our initial session, your coach will ask that you come to the coaching sessions prepared with an idea of what you want to achieve in each session. To help you with this, please take time to fill-out the Coaching Prep Form. If possible, it would be helpful for you to complete this form 24 hours in advance of our sessions, excluding the first session.
The key to an effective coaching relationship is communication. Please be honest with yourself and us throughout the coaching process. You can expect us to be straightforward, constructive, and confidential. You can say anything to us, positive or negative; this includes letting us know if something makes you uncomfortable or if you don't want to respond to a question. Please let us know at any time if you have concerns that we haven’t addressed.
As your coach, we are a resource for you to use to your best advantage. We will share concepts or insights, and ask re-orienting questions that are intended to increase your success in attaining your health goals.
We expect your best and expect you to be willing to grow. From time-to-time, we'll make a direct request, like: “Will you accomplish ‘X’ by the end of the month?” You always have the option of accepting our request, declining, or counter-offering something that might be more comfortable.
The cost of this program is covered through grants secured by RockCF, the CFF, and Beau Means Business Foundation.
