What is Mental Health and Physical Health Coaching?
Mental health and physical health coaching is a vibrant area of healthcare. Mental health professionals are knowledgeable and skilled in their practice and incorporate physical health coaching techniques into their range of services. Optimal health is an integrated lifestyle and mindset process. Mental health and physical health coaching can be a profound and practical way to help clients make meaningful changes to their health and outlook. Xiomara uses a coaching toolbox with key skills such as how to create an organic personal wellness plan, how to build client rapport and give constructive feedback, and how to apply different coaching models effectively. She picks up the reins of mental health and physical health coaching for her clients and provides integrated health diagnostic services, preventative healthcare, customized treatments and Do It Yourself (DIY) healthcare exploration in partnership with her clients.
Professional mental health and physical health coaching helps clients improve their overall health and well-being through coaching. Clients develop emotional competence and confidence necessary to support behavioral and emotional changes that will improve their lives and help them feel happier. Unlike clinical counseling, coaching does not involve a diagnosis or treatment of a clinical disorder. Instead, coaching focuses on lifestyle changes and personal growth.
Coaching is a professional relationship between a client and a coach. The mental health and physical health coaching process helps the client develop the emotional competence and emotional confidence necessary to support personal cognitive, behavioral, and emotional change. It facilitates the creation and development of personal goals and skills that can lead to a purposeful, rewarding journey through life. It does not involve a diagnosis or treatment for mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric or Psychological Association. Mental health and physical coaching is not a substitute for clinical counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, substance abuse treatment, or psychiatric treatment when a diagnosed disorder is present.

Coaching is beneficial for individuals who, for one reason or another, are hesitant about getting into psychotherapy or clinical counseling yet are willing to see a coach for support and guidance.
Someone with a recognizable, treatable, and diagnosable clinical disorder needs to see a different kind of professional. Xiomara can provide those services as well, she is a clinically trained mental health professional. However, if someone believes they have issues that coaching can handle then they should see a professional coach.
