Unit 1: Psychology, Behaviour Change and Wellbeing Management This unit will look closely at the theory that underlines health coaching and wellbeing management, you will gain a understanding of psychology, so you can better understand human behaviour (learning, personality, habits, motivation and decision-making) and the factors that influence it. Effective communications is critical to a successful coaching relationship and you will review areas of active listening, rephrasing, reflection and motivational interviewing as your tools to support clients in making positive health changes. You will look closely at the theories of behaviour change including the most widely used model, the Transtheoretical Model of Change. Through this section, you will gain an understanding of what fosters positive change, how to overcome barriers and how to support the maintenance of change. Lastly, the unit covers areas of wellbeing including holistic health, the non-diet based approach to healthy eating, stress management and creating life balance.
