Unleashing the Power of Coaching
Dr. Mandy, a dedicated chiropractor specializing in women’s health, found herself at a crossroads in 2020 when her brick-and-mortar business was shut down. As she contemplated the limitations of her geographic reach and the overwhelming nature of expensive protocols, she realized the need to expand her skills and transition to an online business.
Despite initial hesitations and the belief that as a clinician, she didn’t require health coaching skills, Dr. Mandy discovered that to truly help women on a deeper level, she needed to understand the underlying emotional components that hindered their progress.
Through her journey in The Women’s Health Coach Certification program, Dr. Mandy experienced several eye-opening moments. She learned the power of coaching and how it enables clients to navigate their own paths, uncover limiting beliefs, and understand the reasons behind their actions.
By shifting the focus from prescriptive education to client-led exploration, Dr. Mandy witnessed the remarkable impact of empowering women to make sustainable changes in their lives.
This approach not only reduced her clients’ reliance on expensive supplements but also enabled them to address the root causes of their health concerns.

Navigating the Program and Shifting Perspectives
One of the most significant lessons Dr. Mandy learned during the program was the power of active listening and allowing clients to find their own solutions.
As a clinician, she had always been accustomed to providing comprehensive information and recommendations. However, by creating a safe space for clients to express themselves and come to their own conclusions, Dr. Mandy witnessed their transformative journeys.
She also recognized the need for self-compassion and understood that embracing imperfections and focusing on sustainable progress is more valuable than striving for unattainable perfection.
Dr. Mandy primarily works with type A women experiencing menopause transitions. These women often arrive with a history of trying various approaches without success, leading to weight loss resistance and self-doubt.
Through health coaching, Dr. Mandy helps her clients find sustainable ways to make positive changes tailored to their unique lifestyles.
