Life Coaching Service...

Diabetes Advocacy is proud to now be able to offer Life Coaching Services to its readers.


photoTrained by Certified Coaches Federation, life coach Barb Wagstaff is expanding Diabetes Advocacy with the goal of helping to empower people living with diabetes to lead less stressful, more fulfilling lives. 


When Barb's then two year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in March of 2000, she knew that her purpose in life was to help people living with this disease--to cope, to learn, and to be healthy.  Through the Diabetes Advocacy website and blog, she has made that mission the focus of her career.  Already equipped with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, Barb still felt that she needed additional tools to help people living with diabetes reach their goals, dreams and optimal health.  She discovered coaching and has found it to be a powerful, transformative process for anyone who wants more out of life but is unsure how to get there. When coupled with advice from diabetes health care professionals, life coaching can provide the final cog in the holistic approach to medicine--administering to the mind, body and soul. 


Note from Barb...

"Being a diabetes life coach is a dream come true for me. I know what a struggle it can be to live with diabetes.  I understand the heartache, the frustration and the depression that can come with this disease.  Helping people to get past those issues and bearing witness to the transformations in their lives is incredibly rewarding.  It is such an exhilarating feeling to be part of such a process and I thoroughly love what I do! Making the decision to be coached is the first step.  After that, we can collaborate to create an individualized care plan for your journey to a healthier, more peaceful life with diabetes.  I invite you to contact me today to talk about how I can help you."
