Finding a good health coach to help you might sound daunting and expensive. You may even be wondering what the heck a health coach even is so... in this post I’m sharing the 5 reasons you’d even want to hire a health coach and what we do!
For those of you who don’t know my names Ashleen, hi! I am an Internationally Certified Health Coach who helps men and women with anxiety improve their gut health so they can finally start managing their mental illness and stop feeling frustrated and irritated all the time.
Been there, done that!
I graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition where I learned everything there is to know about health and well-being in all areas of your life, not just in regards to food. The food we eat isn’t everything but it is a foundational piece in creating a clear and calm mind. I struggled with anxiety for a long time and never even knew because my anxiety manifested itself in binge eating, frustration and anger. To be frank, I was not so fun to be around. I figured this was just due to my surroundings and thinking ‘everyone was annoying’ except me [ha-ha!].
It wasn’t until I moved to the Cayman Islands after college that I realized it wasn’t my surroundings. I had planted myself in a beautiful place and didn’t have a problem in the world, even though I was still trying to find problems. It was like I just wanted to be miserable and take everyone down with me.
I finally wanted to know what the deal was because I’m sitting on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, the universe is literally handing me everything I could have asked for and I’m still complaining and being a major B. Time to do something about it, I thought. The next day I looked into cognitive behavioral therapy and started working on my health.
Once I started focusing on my gut health, everything felt easier. I was more receptive, understanding, calm, I wasn’t so reactive and angry. Things that would throw me over the edge didn’t bother me anymore, didn’t even notice them but other people noticed the difference in me.
Everyone walked on eggshells as to not "wake the beast" and once they started pointing out the shifts I was making I knew I was on the right track. Now, four years later, I’ve dropped 20 pounds and kept it off for three years, my digestive system doesn't hate me anymore, I’m much happier, I can handle things being thrown at me with a lot more ease and grace and ultimately I’ve completely rid myself of that frustrated, overwhelmed feeling that used to feel so heavy on my chest.
I want that for you too, which is why I became a coach. I’ve shifted my own life in such a way and with really minimal effort that I needed to share it with others so they can feel the same freedom I do, now.
Anxiety and depression go hand in hand and they both are directly linked to your gut microbiome. I was so unaware of this before asking for help, but just that simple action of asking for help opened up so many opportunities for me and my physical and mental health.
My new online membership program, Gut Calm Blueprint, teaches the exact step-by-step framework I used and my clients have used to overcome anxiety and digestive issues. Learn more about it here, check it out here.

Here are the 5 reasons you should hire a coach:
So many of us simply just don't do well on our own, even for things we really want! Usually we just need a buddy to help us keep going
2. Community Support
Having people around you that are going through the same things and can offer help, guidance in addition to an expert is such a game changer!
3. Not like a doctor
Coaches have usually been through it and understand - no prescribing here just help
4. Actually cheaper
Think about it paying medical bills, copays, going through insurance is a hefty bill and time waster and instead of sitting in a waiting room and only being seen for 5 minutes by the doctor you get real heart-felt support and understanding of what's going on with you as an individual not just a medication prescription after seeing someone for five minutes.
5. There with you for the long term - at least NSSC is
Coaches want to make sure you succeed and can help you on a more personal level. They are more invested in you as their client because they have more skin in the game.
