How can a wellness coach help your business?

A Business Wellness Coach provides one-on-one, customised emotional coaching support to you personally, assisting you to address stress impacts. This support includes helping you to identify the source of your challenges and strategies to enable you to move forward with your decision-making.

A Business Wellness Coach can support you with personal emotional coaching in collaboration with your Rural or Small Business Financial Counsellor, or independently.

Your Wellness Coach has a background in business, combined with a qualification in social work, psychology, social science, mental health, related field or equivalent experience.

This enables your Wellness Coach to provide honest and realistic support on a person-to-person basis.

Note the support provided by a Business Wellness Coach is not clinical and does not include subscribing medical aids. If it is identified that your needs exceed the support available from a Coach, you shall be referred to an appropriately licensed clinician.
