I’m in a support group at Kaiser Permanente and we talk about medication and information online. I go on kp.org a lot. I knew I needed some guidance – I decided to try it (wellness coaching) and it is really working out. I have my Kaiser Permanente wellness coach and I also have a Kaiser Permanente nutritionist. I’m really glad I did this. It’s helping me out a lot. I have a problem with consistency and staying on point – the wellness coach proposed several solutions and I went with one of the solutions.
The wellness coaching is helping me with my self-esteem – it helps to give me confidence and she helps me put what I know I should do into action. She gives me assignments and encouragement. I have that help now – before, I was doing it all by myself – knowing I have help makes me feel better – someone is concerned about me. It helps me stay on track.
When I work with a Kaiser Permanente nutritionist, I do this all through video visits. I also used it once with my coach. The Wellness Coach helps me put all of the ideas into practice – what do I need to do and how I will do it. It helps me out a lot. Her name is Tracy.
