Individual Health and Wellness Coaching / Occupational Therapy

Keeping motivated and making change can be difficult.  Having the support of others can increase your likelihood of success.  If change has been difficult for you or your clients then perhaps you could consider a personal coach. Be Inspired Group can provide individual coaching to help you identify what you want and how to achieve it.

Our sessions are individually tailored to you and we aim to help enhance your motivation, build your confidence and empower you with the skills and resilience to make change achievable and sustainable.

Able to accept referrals from GP’s  under a Chronic Disease Management Plan or a Mental Health Care Plan for Occupational Therapy coaching, so you can claim a Medicare rebate.  Also private health insurance rebates, depending on your cover.   More info
