What is Wellbeing Coaching?
Wellbeing Coaching, an evidence-based practice, supports an individual’s self-determination in behavior change that is goal-directed and health promoting.

Wellbeing Coaching is available to any currently enrolled Wake Forest University student, faculty, or staff at no cost. Our Wellbeing Coaches are committed to meeting your needs as an individual and core member of the Wake Forest University campus community.
