A functional or holistic health coach is an expert at meeting clients where they are and taking them to where they want to be in their health journey in the least stressful way possible by practicing a transformational 3-step approach that is safe for both the coach and the client.
“A health coach bridges the gap between YOU and better health.” – Carmen Hunter — Founder of The Institute for Functional Health Coaching™
Functional and Holistic Medicine strive to consider the whole body in an approach to health. Treatment is focused on considering that the mind, spirit and body are all interconnected in respect to health.

“Holding a GEMA Ecclesiastical/Ministerial License is beneficial because it demonstrates to your clients that you are a member of an Association and that you have met certain educational and clinical requirements. Furthermore, the many resources that GEMA has available will benefit you tremendously, whether you need to market your services to enhance your profile, or acquire further education and training in the healing arts. By holding credentials from GEMA, a credentialed member is given credibility in the public, being assured that he/she is sound, well trained, has ethical principles, and is knowledgeable in the use of holistic medicine.”

While the focus of psychotherapy is on the causes and treatment of dysfunction related to mental health and issues from the past, coaching is focused on making lifestyle changes in the present and goal setting for the future. Most coaching clients are generally people who are ready to make changes in their lives and want the support of their own personal coach to help them achieve more in less time.
