How to help your wellness coaching clients reflect on their emotional wellness.
When possible, provide the client with the opportunity to reflect on their emotional wellness by completing some of the assessments that we have included. When the client has completed all four assessments, it is time for you to then total the outcome scores for each section, and then divide the total by four, to determine the average wellness score in this area.
EXCELLENT (90 – 100)
Your client is engaging in behaviors and has a healthy attitude. This will significantly contribute to a healthy lifestyle and a higher quality of life for your client. If your client scored in this range, they may be viewed as an example for many.
GOOD (75 – 89)
Your client is engaging in a lot of health-promoting behaviors and has healthy attitudes that will contribute to their overall good health and increased the quality of life. This client has some areas that could use some upgrading to provide optimal wellness. If your client is at this level, they are showing how much they care about themselves and their life.
AVERAGE (65 – 74)
This is the typical or average client who will tend to act without thinking about the consequences of their behaviors. At this time, it is ideal to consider lifestyle factors and the consequences they have on the client currently or in the future. There are most likely some areas that, with some positive actions, could improve this client’s quality of life.
BELOW AVERAGE (45 – 64)
This client may lack enough information about behaviors and attitudes that they can change to improve the quality of their life. Again, now is the ideal time to begin to learn about positive behavior changes.
