Wellbeing Coaching is an evidence-based practice designed to help students reach their personal health and wellbeing goals. Health and wellbeing coaching is structured around the changes that you want to make in your life when you are ready to make them – you are empowered through this process to identify the life you want to be living and are not “told” by a coach what your life “should” look like. Certified health coaches meet one on one with you to provide support and accountability to reach your health and wellbeing goals over a period of weeks together. Coaches apply strategies and practical skills as they partner with you to work through lifestyle challenges and to help you reach a quality of life that is meaningful, self-sustaining, healthy, and value-driven. Coaching can help with things like goal setting, stress management, resiliency, time management, sleep hygiene, chronic disease management, self-care, and lifestyle management. The coaching experience is personalized for every client and is an incredibly powerful process. If you’re ready to make healthy, goal-directed changes in your life – Wellbeing Coaching is for you!
The Office of Wellbeing is now offering summer sessions for Wellbeing Coaching starting Tuesday, May 19th. Student cllients will meet with the coach for an initial session and then weekly for the next three weeks, for a total of four sessions. Sessions will be scheduled directly with the coach and there is some flexibility to accommodate skipping a week or moving a session, when needed. Sessions will be 45-60 minutes long and will take place via google meet or telephone. Students can sign up for their first session here.

If Your Student Has a Problem
One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
