“When I started with Gail I was eating unhealthy, overweight, and had little energy. After a few weekly meetings, an exercise regimen and a food intake makeover, I was on the right track. Gail and I met every week and reviewed my successes, challenges, caloric intake and my weight loss. By the end of 3 months, I lost 2 pants sizes and almost 25 pounds. Being given the right tools and knowhow from Gail has just changed my life and eating habits.                      
                                        -Christine G.

Self-change is a staged process. We move from not even thinking about changing a behavior to thinking about it, to planning to change, and then testing out ways to do it before we actually start.  Whether your health priority is managing stress better, healthier nutrition, regular exercise or quitting smoking, choose step #3  as an example of the coaching steps you will take to achieve sustainable healthy lifestyle changes.

 Take Your Strengths Inventory!
http://www.authentichappiness.

See important details below!
​Current research indicates that you are most likely to value a job, relationship, hobby or institution that aligns with your core signature strengths but allows you to use them regularly. Do you want to boost your long-term happiness? Exciting research indicates that one of the best ways is to use your strengths in new ways and situations, rather than focusing on your weaknesses. This is well in keeping with the positive psychology philosophy: regularly focus on the positive in your life, not the negative! Remember the 'glass half full' way of life.

Take your strengths inventory here: http://www.authentichappiness.sas.upenn.edu/Default.aspx.  It will take you about 15-20 minutes but it is well worth your time. See Engagement Questionnaires in the middle blue box.

(Note: you will have to register on University of Pennsylvania's Authentic Happiness website first to take the test, but stick with it. It's a short form that should take only a few minutes to complete).
What are my Signature Strengths?
If you're ready to take realistic steps to finally create sustainable lifestyle change then this is the right program for you.  Your  initial 90 minute session includes review of your completed well-being assessment and identification of your priorities for your long term wellness vision.  You'll also decide what 3-month and first weekly goals you're ready to commit to. Each weekly meeting we'll review goals and celebrate successes while you define challenges to brainstorm about and your next week's goals. 

Three months or twelve weekly sessions are recommended to identify priorities, learn a new and positive perspective for lasting change, and feel energized and confident to address your health priorities.  As the ultimate result, you will be inspired and challenged to go beyond what you would do alone. Choose the combination of initial design session and weekly session packages that are right for you: 

       • Initial 90-minute design session  
       •  (2)  30-minute sessions with goals emailed or,
       •  (4)  30-minute sessions with goals emailed 
       •  Free texts/emails between sessions. 
       •  Complimentary travel within 15 minutes of Windham, NH 

To help you keep track of your plan and vision, you will 
receive a folder after our first session together:

       • Documentation of your vision, 3-month goals, weekly goals
       • If necessary, a medical release, with doctor's input and
         physical activity recommendations.

Am I Ready to Change?
Group Coaching: is a partnership between the coach and participants with similar goals or backgrounds that are ready to make healthy lifestyle changes. If you have ever experienced the power of a group then you know the higher levels of support and success you can realize! If you’re new to group coaching then get ready to experience the proven coaching process with like-minded people. Participants start by outlining their goals and mapping specific steps to take to achieve them. Using proven coaching tools each week we’ll check in on your progress since we last spoke.  

What Will Happen During Our Group Sessions? We will begin each group session with a check-in to see how you are doing and the progress that you have made on your personal goals since we last met. A weekly topic will be introduced or a question will be asked so the group can share how it is relevant to their own success. Each group member will make a commitment to the group to move forward with steps between sessions to get them closer to their goals. Gail will help you identify actions or lessons learned about yourself that helped you succeed. She is also available with email or text support for questions you may have between sessions.

It’s Easy to “Meet”!
Telephonic groups: Save time when we meet for our telephone conference calls – no travel involved! Get comfortable and find a quiet place to join us without distraction to get the most out of your coaching time.

Worksite Wellness Groups
Offer  support and accountability with your worksite wellness  program.  Convenient, on-site coaching  classes from 4-12 weeks.

Professional coaches have long been recognized for their skills in helping athletes and executives perform at their best. Now professional wellness coaches are helping people uncover their natural impulse to be well. Coaches help us harness the strengths we need to overcome our obstacles, helping us to view obstacles as opportunities to learn and grow. By accepting and meeting us where we are today, then asking us to take charge, coaches guide us in doing the mindful thinking and doing work that builds confidence.  

"I am passionate about coaching and engaging you to work confidently past obstacles, and stay motivated for a lifetime of healthy habits!  " - Gail
