Olivia Beisler is a Nationally Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach. While completing her Master’s degree in Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coaching at the U of MN, Olivia took courses that focused on different areas of integrative and alternative health including mindfulness, herbalism, functional nutrition, physical activity, lifestyle medicine, mind-body transformation, and end of life transition/care.
Olivia’s coaching focuses on working one on one or in small groups and partnering with clients instead of prescribing or educating. Her approach is based on holistic health, mind/body/spirit connection, and the importance of fostering self-compassion, self-awareness, and community. She loves combining aspects of allopathic and integrative medicine, working on personal growth, and bringing creativity and the arts into her coaching sessions. She intentionally works to create a safe space for open-minded discussions that explore the liminal spaces and intersections of mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
WHAT IS HEALTH COACHING?
Coaching provides a space to explore wellness topics and move towards a more balanced life with the assistance of a holistically trained, board certified coach. Coaches support and guide the discovery of a client’s inner wisdom and healing which can help a client make discoveries and changes that are sustainable in the long term. By cultivating mindfulness skills, connecting to a larger health vision, and supporting deep inner work, coaching fosters the growth of more intrinsically motivated, balanced, self-advocating, and self-sustainable members of the community.
Having a coach allows you to have a safe space to process and explore what you want to focus on, with the added bonus of accountability, motivation, resources, and curious questions. Tools such as positive psychology, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, deep listening, and creating a safe space all seek to cultivate and support the growth that the client feels ready for and wants to nurture.
Coaching is not based on educating or directing you to do what is “best” for you, rather, you and Olivia will dive deep into your own health journey and help you find your own inner wisdom which will ultimately lead you to personally tailored insights and change. A minimum of 4-6 sessions (scheduled anywhere from weekly to monthly depending on preference) is recommended for most clients as it gives time for coach and client to get to know each other, work on different approaches, navigate barriers/challenges, and see some forward movement.
