Becoming the team our patients need

“Health Coaching is a team sport.”

With current healthcare challenges faced by many populations and their health systems globally, the need to enhance access to chronic condition management has never been more critical.


Many countries have already integrated Health and Wellness Coaches into Primary Care (GP) Practices as effective behaviour change specialists to support patients through multidisciplinary healthcare teams.


Precision Health Coaching (Dr Darren Webb) is a passionate advocate for such approaches to patient care.
