Season 4, Episode 05: What Is A Diabetes Health Coach?

Coaching, at any level and for any endeavor, exists to support and challenge you. No matter who is being coached, or for what purpose, a successful coaching engagement must support and challenge a person.

A health coach is a professional who helps people manage, set goals and improve their health. A diabetes health coach is no different. They are health coaches, but they also support clients in their diabetes management. Diabetes health coaches provide personalized advice and support to help individuals understand the best strategies for managing their health and achieving positive outcomes.

In this episode, Pam Durant, Diapoint’s Founder & Managing Director, talks more about what a health coach is and exactly what a diabetes coach does. Pam has a triple certification in health coaching, lifestyle medicine and mindful eating.

Pam covers questions like, what is the difference between coaching, therapy, consulting, educating, mentoring and policing? Pam also sheds some light on the coaching process and how we work with our diabetes coaching clients at Diapoint.

About Dia-Logue: The Diapoint Podcast and Pamela Durant

Pam Durant is a diabetes thought leader, entrepreneur, healthcare expert and wellness coach. She is the Founder and Managing Director of Diapoint – The Place for People Touched By Diabetes.

Her successful healthcare management career was turned upside down when her 20-month-old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes over a decade ago. Not only did this challenge Pam as a parent, it also challenged everything that she believed and understood about healthcare and the provider-patient relationship. As she went on to tackle the steep learning curve of diabetes to support her son to grow and thrive with this condition, she soon realized the great need for change in healthcare and in diabetes management.

She was inspired to create Diapoint, a company that focuses on people with diabetes through events, education, advocacy and products to support them.

She also supports clients with her Wellness and Lifestyle Medicine Coaching at pameladurant.com.
