Healthy Campus Coordinator

Hi, I'm Brett McCavour, and I'm the Healthy Campus Coordinator at STU!

My goal is help students live happier and healthier lives.  It can be hard to find time in a busy student schedule to exercise, eat healthy and get enough sleep but it’s extremely important to take care of our physical health as it directly impacts our mental health and academic success. I provide students with information and tools to help build healthy habits into their busy schedules in hopes to improve their overall health and wellbeing.

Health Coaching and Personal training

 

  • Health coaching is 1-on-1 client-centered coaching that helps you achieve positive lifestyle changes that matter to you. A health coach will work with you to help identify, track and follow through on sustainable, self-directed wellness goals that align with your personal values. Health coaching offers students an opportunity to talk about health behaviors in a safe and judgment free environment and work collaboratively to develop skills and strategies to create behavior change that will positively impact their health and wellbeing.

  • A coach will meet with you to help you decide what you want to change and to work on the skills you will need to be more active, eat better, drink less or reduce/quit smoking. For example, you might work on setting appropriate goals, on improving confidence, or on identifying likely problems and barriers to success. All of your interactions with your health coach are completely confidential.
