The professional support offered by Heart and Soul Coaching is recognizes and adheres to the distinction between the concepts ‘chronic disease’ and ‘chronic illness’.
Chronic Disease refers to the pathology of the condition, based on the biomedical disease classification. Diabetes, asthma and clinical depression are just three examples of the many chronic diseases that exist. In this approach we rely on the clinically-agreed and universal classification.
Each disease has its associated signature and symptoms. Symptoms, in turn, can be mild, medium and severe.
Our coaching support for chronic disease consists of evaluating your symptoms and all the contributing factors that may be involved. Next, together we will design and implement your individual care support to help you to best manage your condition on a daily basis. Your individual program could include certain lifestyle changes, dietary considerations, adherence to beneficial therapies and medications, setting up your support framework, a workable activity / rest routine, and so on.
