University Employees can register for free wellness coaching as a service provided by the HealthierU Employee Wellness program.
What is a Wellness Coach?
Wellness coaches are health and wellness professionals who work collaboratively with clients to facilitate the achievement of self-determined goals related to balanced healthy living.
Through wellness coaching, clients will:
- expand their knowledge of the different dimensions of wellness
- define wellness goals specific to their needs
- establish action steps necessary to achieve their goals
- identify on-campus and local wellness resources
- make strides towards living a healthier lifestyle
Wellness coaches are not responsible for prescribing workout plans, nutritional plans, or advice, or to take the place of a licensed mental health practitioner.
What does wellness coaching look like?
Clients work with their coach in a 1-hour, virtual or in-person intake session. During the initial session, clients will work together towards developing a plan to best fit their motivational desires and aspirations towards healthy living. After the initial consultation, a 45-minute follow-up session will be scheduled 2 to 4 weeks after the initial consultation to review program progress. The final 45-minute session is scheduled 2 to 4 weeks following the first follow-up session. If you have any further questions regarding wellness coaching please contact us at Healthieru@unl.edu.
To book a session with a wellness coach please email HealthierU@UNL.edu with your preferred session date, time, and location ( virtual or in-person at the University Health Center).
