Meet with a Peer Wellness Coach!

Why sign up for Wellness Coaching?

Students can receive individual wellness coaching through our Institute for Wellness Coaching to develop personal goals and strategies to improve health behaviors. We believe health and wellness is the foundation for everything we do and it’s important to take time to invest in it during your time at BC. 
 

Wellness Coaching is an evidence-based and solution-focused conversation structured around the changes that you want to make in your life when you are ready to make them – you are empowered through this process to identify the life you want to be living and design actionable goals and strategies to get you there. Trained Peer Wellness Coaches apply strategies and practical skills as they partner with you to work through lifestyle challenges and to help you reach a quality of life that is meaningful, self-sustaining, healthy, and value-driven.
