Health Coaching for HIV
Health coach HIV- One-to-one coaching
Being diagnosed with HIV can be an upsetting and stressful time. There is a lot of information to take on board, and this may feel extremely overwhelming and isolating at times.
Modern medicine has advanced in such a way that if you are diagnosed early and have access to antiretrovirals, you are able to live a normal and full life.
Having said that, as with any long-term illness, there are also things that you can implement to support you and the health of your immune system.
As an HIV health coach I will help you make some simple lifestyle changes that will support you on your journey.
Knowing your HIV status keeps you and your sexual partners safe.
So it’s important to get tested regularly.
From someone who’s been through an HIV diagnosis, I understand the complex mental and physical challenges it brings. Therefore, I am able to offer my insights, experiences and objective support that you may not be able to get from doctors, friends, or family.
