Cancer coaching supports the client in dealing with all the challenges related to living with cancer. In a recent research study 30 cancer patients participated in wellness coaching over a three-month period. Published by The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences, the results showed various improvements including decreased depression and anxiety, increased physical activity, better motivation, and healthier diet. Other studies have indicated coaches can help patients communicate better with their doctors, make better health care choices, manage transitions, and maintain better relationships with family and friends.
