We are all facing a unique time as we attempt to stay well during the COVID-19 pandemic. Common challenges of this experience include finding ways to deal with increased stress, practicing self-care, and maintaining healthy relationships with family, friends, and/or work colleagues. Wellness coaching can help individuals deal with this added level of stress and related challenges.
To be of service to our community during this time, Bastyr University Clinic is offering Wellness Coaching as a pro-bono service (free of charge). A $5-$20 donation to the University is requested, though no one will be turned away during this time. This service will be offered through August 2020 only.
Our wellness coaches support people in achieving specific goals in their personal wellness. Coaching goals may include:
Please note that coaching sessions do not treat mental health disorders/illnesses or provide mental health counseling.
Our clinic is ideally suited to provide short-term wellness coaching via online video meetings. Sessions are 45-minutes long and typically meet once each week for no more than 10 weeks. A Bastyr clinical faculty member oversees the wellness coaching sessions and supervises the student coaches. Supervisors may refer to mental health counseling services if that is deemed most appropriate.
