    Hi Michael
    I thoroughly enjoyed and valued reading your book “Wellness Coaching For Lasting Lifestyle Change”. I am in the process now of writing an ebook titled “The Teenager’s Search For Meaning”
    In one of the modules I would like to include your list of “10 Qualities Of Wellness” verbatim and of course acknowledge your name and book as the source.
    Would you grant me permission to do so?
    Warm Regards
    Paul

    Be well!

    Hi Michael
    I wanted to comment on your most recent post – about marketing oneself as a wellness coach – but could only find the option to comment here so I hope I’m in the right place! I’m refocusing on a midlife niche and am in the early stages of market research to see what the issues are (here in the UK). What’s coming up is less ‘health issues’ and more aspects of wellness (though they don’t call them that) such as time for self, difficult emotions around new roles eg caring for older relatives, not knowing what they enjoy after a lifetime of caring for children…and worklife balance. I’m a bit worried that this is starting to take me away from being a ‘wellness coach’ (not a common term in the UK but one I like) – and more into something like a well, transition coach? Reading other of your posts eg on baby boomers and self-employed business owners reassures me a little though. Is what I”m doing wellness coaching? I can certainly see all aspects of wellness, including physical, being relevant to my clients judging from the interviews, although they may not see it that way at them moment! Many thanks for your blog, I find it most helpful.
