About Linda O’Connor and TLC Health Coach
If it has to do with learning to live a healthy lifestyle, I can help!
Hello, I’m Linda O’Connor and my goal is to educate and guide you to be responsible for making healthy dietary and lifestyle changes with the goal of living a happy, healthy, disease free life.
I guess I used to fit in the same category as a lot of other American women, moderately overweight, tired and stressed out most of the time and not really taking good care of myself. At the time I thought I was cooking healthy meals for my family, as I certainly wouldn’t consciously do anything to jeopardize our health. But then I had a life changing event, the discovery that I had a form of Lymphoma. Wow, what a shock, and like most people, I never thought it would happen to me.
I had always believed in disease prevention and natural self-healing instead of being dependent on prescription medications and surgical procedures. So, I began researching the disease and learned that it can be caused by a multitude of poor dietary and lifestyle habits, and that by turning these around to good ones, I could possibly hold in check or possibly reverse it. So, I had two choices, continue down the path of living an unhealthy lifestyle, or figure out what I needed to do to make the necessary changes to live healthier.
My Passion For Health Coaching
I was so intrigued about what I was learning that I developed a passion to want to spread it to everyone I could. This led me to my new career. I studied with The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and became a Certified Health Coach. I received extensive training in dietary counseling, holistic health and practical lifestyle coaching methods. I love to teach and I love to help others learn how they too can turn their lives around and start to live healthy and feel good about themselves again.
My TLC Health Coach Business
I named my company TLC Health Coach, with the TLC standing for “Total Lifestyle Change.” You see, it’s not just what we eat that makes us healthy or not, it’s everything we do in life and who we are that contributes even more. I realized that what most people need is a very basic knowledge of nutrition and other healthy living techniques, and a step by step plan to put it all together. This led me to the development of my health coaching program Health Makeover 101.
While my program is a step by step guide to living healthy,
my approach is all about YOU!
Your needs, your goals, and who you ultimately want to be!
I operate with the goal of getting you to where you want to be with YOUR health and happiness.
