Know Your Own Health

Health & Wellbeing Coaching

Health & Wellbeing Coaching supports patients to take ownership ('patient activation'), improving their health outcomes and reducing their dependence on clinical services.  It is non-directive, patient-focused and personalised to the individual.

Know Your Own Health are leaders in the field of dedicated Health & Wellbeing Coaching, delivering the intervention as a pilot programme in a number of localities under different banners, such as ‘Live Well Feel Better’, and cited as exemplars of non-clinical Health Coaching (Health & Wellbeing Coaching) in NHS England’s Health Coaching and Quality Summary Guide.

KYOH’s training and supervision programme replicates the training and supervision programme used in the delivery of these programmes.
