Active Transportation Counseling?
01/16-03/16
Instructor: Jane Rosten
Location: TBD
BeWell Berry

Learn to gradually expand your non-auto transportation without aiming for perfection. In this 1-hour session, in-person or by phone, talk with an experienced health behavior counselor to set goals and overcome barriers that stand between your good intentions and a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Even trying once a month can be a good start. In addition to environmental and economic benefits, active transportation provides great health advantages such as increased exercise and stress reduction.

For Stanford employees, there will be support for accessing Commute Club opportunities, if desired. For questions, call Jane Rosten, LCSW, at 498-4744.

Instructor: Jane Rosten, MSW, LCSW, Manager of Stanford HIP's Environmental Behavior Change Program.

BeWell Berry

Are you eager to make lasting change in an important area of your wellbeing? Tired of using quick-fix solutions that only ad up to temporary change?

What is wellness coaching?

During these 5 Wellness Coaching sessions, you will work one-on-one with an experienced Coach who will support you in uncovering your motivations and leveraging your strengths to reach personal goals and sustain healthy behaviors. Your Coach will partner with you as you set clear and attainable goals in each session, and help you navigate the path to success.

The first session is a 1-hour conversation, usually conducted via phone, with the option of doing it in-person. The initial session is followed by four subsequent 15-30 minute telephone conversations

What Wellness Coacing is it NOT

Unlike personalized nutrition coaching, or personal stress reduction, wellness coaching is for individuals who have an interest in making broader life changes. While participants are welcome to work on making changes to their eating and/or stress management behaviors during the course of wellness coaching, wellness coaches might not be content experts in these areas. If you are interested in very specific diet or stress management advice, please consider registering for Personalized Nutrition Coaching or Personal Stress Reduction, respectively.

Please read our Coaches? biographies carefully before registering, as each of them brings a unique set of specializations and experience, and differ in their availability.

Coach: DEBBIE BALFANZ received her PhD in Social Psychology from Princeton and came to HIP in '02. As both the Manager of HIP?s group weight management programs, and as a working mom, she understands the realities of trying to fit in physical activity and healthy eating while living a busy life. She enjoys helping others identify and manage their barriers to a healthy lifestyle.
