Health Coaching

Health coaches support you through the process of defining and achieving your health and wellness goals by creating a sustainable and achievable action plan.

Please be advised that coaching sessions are not a substitute for medical appointments. Coaches cannot diagnose or treat medical issues, or authorize medical tests. More than one visit is possible.

Update: Health coaching appointments are currently on hold, but we plan to have this service available in mid-Fall semester.

You can use the resources below to assist you in making positive health changes. If you need more assistance, email us at hpromo@berkeley.edu. Put “Health Navigation” in the subject line and we will get back to you!
