    Mapping a Clear Pathway to Wellness

    Michael Arloskis wonderful book on Wellness Coaching brings to the reader insight & clarity into wellness coaching as well as providing a step by step coaching process giving the reader a clear overview of all the elements that one needs to consider as part of the wellness or health coaching process and plan.

    Starting with Maslow's hierarchy of needs and the development of wellness models, Arloski also addresses in detail the subtle but essential ingredients often overlooked that make for successful coaching. From the qualities needed to be a successful coach to his Wellness Mapping 360? approach including useful worksheets and tools, this book provides a highly skilled practitioners insights and process. I highly recommend it for any health professional wishing to improve their ability to support their patient or clients in changing behavior. I will be using this book in teaching Wellness Coaching to University students next year.
