Health and wellness coaching

Deakin offers a free health coaching service to help you improve your overall health and wellbeing.

How does health coaching work?

The role of a health coach is to guide and support you on your wellness journey. A health coach can help you:

  • define what optimal wellness means to you
  • set meaningful and achievable goals for your health
  • determine how you can best achieve your goals by providing support, ideas and strategies.

In your first appointment, you’ll complete a health assessment form, which will form the basis of your health plan. From here, you’ll independently work towards achieving your goals.

How do I access the service?

Our health coaching service is free and confidential, and you don’t need a referral, so you can start your wellness journey today.

Our health coach (and campus nurse) is Kelly Favaloro. Kelly is available for one-hour in-person appointments on Mondays at Geelong Waterfront Campus.
