How to handle feelings and emotions with your health coaching clients

I've been wanting to discuss this topic for awhile. This week I had the pleasure of listening to a talk from a coaching master and loved his approach to dealing with emotions in coaching.

This can be a scary one for new health coaches.

What if my client gets upset and cries?

Do I talk about emotions and feelings or is this only for counsellors or therapists?

When do I need to refer out?

In this video, I share some insights and tips to help you feel comfortable and confident in handling emotions with your health coaching clients.

What questions do you still have about handling feelings and emotions. I'd be happy to answer them in the comments or feel free to email me at
