Integrative Nurse Coaching
What is Integrative Nurse Coaching?
Integrative nurse coaching is a new specialty in nursing. As an integrative, board certified nurse coach, Maureen works with individuals who may struggle to meet their health and wellness goals.
In the coaching relationship the individual is empowered to make changes and to get “unstuck” from old patterns that may no longer serve them or meet their needs. It is a co-creative model in which the integrative nurse coach gently guides the client with intentional presence, deep listening and caring. Through the transpersonal relationship, an individual can harness their inner wisdom and learn and develop new strategies that support healing, self-awareness, self-care and self-transformation.
What is Integrative Nurse Coaching used for?
Integrative Nurse Coaching promotes wellness and resiliency by guiding you to deepen connections with your inner healing resource. Research shows that the therapeutic presence and interaction between a nurse and patient can be a healing moment, providing comfort, support, and lowering the stress response. This person-centered model strengthens your capacity to make meaningful choices and to help establish goals and strategies for a healthier lifestyle. Integrative Nurse Coaching integrates a holistic perspective in a coaching interaction and emerges from an awareness that effective change evolves from within. The principles and modalities integrate body-mind-emotion-spirit.
INC teaches people how to become productive and goal-oriented, helps you learn how to manage stress and you will learn about your hidden potential (physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual).
What should I expect from my Integrative Nurse Coaching session?
At the initial session, the nurse coach will meet with the client for one hour for an emotional, mind-body-spirit assessment. Using the integrative nurse coach health and wellness tool as a guide, the session will focus on the client’s identified needs, priorities for change, motivation and readiness to change as well as strengths and anticipated obstacles.
Working with an integrative nurse coach for ongoing treatment, you will co-develop an individualized care plan that may include recommendations to incorporate other modalities into your health plan. The Integrative Nurse Coach will manage and coordinate your care across providers to ensure your goals are met.
