Believing in the power of personal growth and transformation, particularly as it relates to health and well-being, inspired me to become a wellness coach. I believe that everyone has the ability to create a vision of optimal health and wholeness, and to overcome the obstacles necessary to make the positive changes needed to live a healthy and purposeful life.
“When I first learned about health coaching, it all came together for me – as that had been my approach all along – in my work in the medical clinic and as a therapist. It’s a natural part of who I am. I love researching and sharing information on health, and I love more than anything seeing people grow to their fullest potential. It is an honor to be a part of their growth, providing guidance and tools, and cheering them to their goals.
My own personal health journey has been a huge factor in my becoming a wellness coach. I had one of those mysterious, un-diagnosable, hypersensitivity syndromes that defied conventional treatments and discovered early on that I had to take responsibility for my health. I know the difficulties of navigating the healthcare system. I know what it’s like to hold onto that last remnant of hope and never give up. I learned how to search out information, resources and providers who would be a part of my wellness team. I also know what it’s like to be well! And I know that a healthy body begins with a healthy mind.” – Rebecca
The foundation of my approach is brain health and neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to change. Whether coaching with a client or providing counseling services directed to a specific challenge, I use a collaborative approach, focusing in on creating solutions for my clients. Blending conventional and alternative approaches, I draw on a variety of styles and techniques that have proven to be helpful to individuals I’ve worked with.
I frequently incorporate expressive arts in the process, providing means of telling one’s story in ways other than words. My hope is that you will begin to discover personal meaning and understanding in new ways, building on strengths to identify and achieve your desired life goals.
About Rebecca Lowry
I am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach and Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, in private practice in North Carolina. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from King University, and a Master of Arts degree in counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. In addition I completed a graduate certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy from Appalachian State University, and Integrative Health Coach Professional Training from Duke Integrative Medicine. Prior to my work as a therapist and coach, I worked in Environmental Medicine as a patient educator and patient advocate.
During the past few years most of my study and training has been in neuroscience, discovering many of the wonderful tools available for strengthening the brain and calming the body. When we have a healthy brain and a healthy body, we can focus better, our relationships are healthy, our moods are stable and positive, and we have energy. I believe that there is no separation between mind and body. Our physical, mental and spiritual health impacts the whole person. I find the greatest joy in coming alongside someone who is ready for growth and change, as I help that person clarify vision for optimal health in all areas of life, and reach desired goals. I look forward to partnering with you.
