Lou Walker Health Coaching

Health. Healing. Hope. Happiness

Personal and corporate health coaching

Do you want to lose weight? Sleep better?  Regain your va va voom? Would you love to stop worrying about your health (or weight or stress) but don’t know where to start?

Hello! I’m Lou Walker, a health coach registered with the UK Health Coaches Association. I help clients change the sticky habits that get in the way of health and living life to the full. I have a particular interest in the benefits of eating ‘real food’, weight management, and workplace health and wellbeing.

We start with where you are now and what’s important to you. For example, while what we eat affects every aspect of our health, tackling stress might make more sense to you, or getting more sleep.  All these things are linked so making a change in one aspect of life will usually pay dividends elsewhere. The important thing is to start somewhere.

Your body is amazing. When we improve our health and get our fantastic bodies working like the well-oiled machines they strive to be, healing, weight loss, extra energy and even happiness follow.

 

Lifestyle expert Dr Rangan Chatterjee puts it brilliantly: “My goal is to empower you to become the architect of your own health.” As a health coach, my mission is to support you by helping you set up your drawing board and sharpen your pencils. To put you back in charge of your health.

 

Is health coaching right for me?

  • I want to lose weight… but finding a diet I can stick to is hard and I keep falling off the wagon.
  • I know how to lose weight… but actually doing it so it fits into real life is a nightmare.
  • I need to lose weight but I have no willpower/I like bread too much/I don’t have time/my friends or family or colleagues keep leading me astray.
  • I want to do what I can to be healthy, but I’m really confused about all the conflicting advice out there. Sometimes it’s seems easier to do nothing.
  • I’m tired of worrying about my health/weight/stress levels. I just want to be healthy and get on with life.
  • I’m doing all the right things… but I’m still not losing weight!
  • I’d like to see if I can improve my health without [any more] medication.
  • My doctor has said I can improve my health if I change my diet and lifestyle… but I’m not sure what that means or what to do.
  • I keep hearing about people having success with a low carb/real food/whole food/Mediterranean diet but I’m not sure what it is or how to go about it.
  • I’m pretty healthy but am interested in how I can stay that way, now that I’m getting older/menopausal/have osteoarthritis.

If any of these statements strike a chord, get in touch for a free 30-min chat to explore how I can help you be in charge of  your health. Coaching will help you work out what’s important to you, develop the skills you need and reveal your own very real inner strengths to rely on along the way.

What is health coaching?

A powerful way of working that can transform you on your own terms

Health coaching is an exploratory process that supports you as you take back control of your health.

A conversation that taps into your inner strengths

Everyone has the capacity for change and you are the expert in your own life. Health coaching taps into that expertise and empowers you to find your way to better health. To write your own health prescription, if you like.

A learning process that cuts through the confusion and builds confidence

There is no ‘one size fits all’ in health. Health coaching helps you discover what YOU need to do for YOU, with a mix of curiosity, questioning (in both directions!) and exploration to build knowledge, skills, motivation and confidence.

A rewarding way to challenge and overcome unhelpful thinking

No journey is without potholes in the road. Health coaching helps you recognise, confront and overcome the self limiting beliefs and self-sabotage that might have stopped you achieving your goals in the past.

An open-minded, non-judgemental process that meets you where you are

 No expectations, no pre-set pathways, no right or wrong. You choose the starting point, the direction and the process.

“Health coaching with Lou has certainly changed my attitude towards food and cleared up the confusion spread by a lot of mainstream influencers. After the initial 5kg weight loss, I’ve not really been worried about what the scales say as I just feel a lot better and starting to feel lighter without chasing numbers.”

Diet and nutrition analysis

A detailed, often reassuring, always empowering analysis of your diet. You’ll find out whether your diet is nutritionally complete and what you could change, depending on your goals (eg to improve health, support your immune system, reduce inflammation, lose weight, improve blood sugar control, support sports training).

The analysis uses Nutritics software and  takes into account your age, physical activity level, weight and height.  It indicates where your dietary intake is against dietary recommendations for macronutrients (protein, fat, carbohydrate/sugar/fibre ) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). 

First, I’ll send you a food diary to complete over three days. I’ll analyse this and create a report for you before a 60-minute consultation to discuss the results and explore what changes you might consider making. We can meet in my office in Hampshire, or alternatively we can work over the phone or Skype.

Six sessions over three months
