Empowerment in Health and Wellness offers a rich and engaging read, drawn from a breadth of complementary and differing professional perspectives. Being informed by both experience and expertise, it is practical in nature: through accessible language, clearly introduced concepts and illustrative examples. Moreover, it is comprehensive in form, exploring a broad range of topics that extends our appreciation in this arena. Each chapter provides gifts of insight for us to weave into our understanding and draw upon to inform our practice. I would recommend this book as being a go-to reference guide within the field of health and wellbeing.
This is a much needed, holistic mind-body-spirit approach to health that provides practical guidance to enable us to take highly motivated purpose-led actions that are sustainable. A must-read for all healthcare practitioners that want to take their impact to the next level, this book shows us how to better manage our wellbeing, develop deeper relationships with ourselves and with others and ultimately lead more fulfilling lives through taking control in whatever situation we find ourselves.
We live in uncertain times. Life no longer functions as it did before and we are thrown back on ourselves. At the same time this time brings many possibilities. It is a question of how to look at it – as an opportunity or a problem. This book offers a wonderful overview of how to ground yourself, to empower and motivate yourself to move forward. It shows tips and tricks both for private and professional use on what it takes to thrive in this challenging time. It has something for everyone and considers the uniqueness of everyone. I can highly recommend it.
Having worked as a nurse for a long time in cancer care and now as a coach I was interested to read how the authors of Empowerment in Health and Wellness used coaching principles and approaches in their work with people with cancer. The book was easy to read with chapters that you could dip in and out of depending on your interest. The holistic approach and the information from the perspectives of different professionals in this area made it much more than just a coaching book, which would be of interest to people with cancer as well as the people that treat and care for them. I like the practical and easy to apply Top Tips at the end of each chapter which makes the book a very useful addition to anyone with an interest in how to put coaching into practice in daily life for an improvement in health and wellbeing.
