When a Client Wants to Lose Weight Part 2

When a client wants to lose weight, do you know how to coach them? A lot of non-diet coaches are struggling to coach their clients through their desire to lose weight. You too?

If you are one of those coaches, I want you to know that it is completely NORMAL to struggle with this. And there is nothing wrong with you as a coach.

The #1 reason you’re struggling with this is because we weren’t professionally trained in the coaching process. 

Most of us are trained in nutrition, intuitive eating, health at every size… whatever your specialty may be. However, what we didn’t get from our professional training was the one thing we need to help our clients succeed. That “thing” is the Coaching Process.

The Coaching Process is non-specific to food and body struggles. Which is great, because you can use it to coach your client through ANY challenge.

HOW TO COACH CLIENTS WHO WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT PART 1

I’m going to show you how to use the Coaching Process with one of the most frequent concerns you get from your clients. Which is, the desire to lose weight.

There are 3 simple steps to this Coaching Process. Follow these steps when your client wants to lose weight:

  • What Is
  • Consent
  • What Needs to Be

WHEN YOUR CLIENT WANTS TO LOSE WEIGHT – STEP 2: ESTABLISHING CONSENT

In today’s episode, I break down the second step to take when a client wants to lose weight – ‘Establishing Consent’.

Establishing consent is critical to your client’s safety when coaching their desire to lose weight. Without refreshing consent in session, you risk digging into something that doesn’t feel safe for the client.

In this episode we also explore how to practice consent with yourself first so that feels easy to do with your clients. Plus, I reveal the powerful questions I use with my clients when they tell me they want to lose weight.

What you’ll learn listening to this episode:

  • Why consent is critical to establishing safety with new clients
  • How to refresh consent with your coaching clients & why it’s necessary
  • Powerful questions to ask your clients when they want to lose weight
  • How to practice consent with YOURSELF so that you feel more comfortable asking your client for consent
