Health & Wellness Coach & Clinical Counsellor
Hello, I'm Angela Poch, and I am a health & wellness coach, plant based nutritionist, and counsellor. Whether you are looking to improve your overall emotional wellbeing or physical health, I am here to help. From online courses to one-on-one sessions, my goal is to help you get the tools you need not just for your current dilemma but for a lifetime! I use a collaborative approach, so expect to put some work into our sessions and be willing to do homework in-between.
I use effective and scientifically researched methods for developing my health courses as well as counselling and coaching with the TEAM-CBT approach as the foundation, but I also use other tools, techniques, and methods creating an integrative approach.
Angela graduated from Nutritional Counseling from the Total Health School of Nutrition in Calgary AB, a 1.5 year, plant based nutrition program and Kelowna College of Professional Counselling with Applied Counselling and Psychology. Other credentials include: Life Coaching Diploma, CBT certificate, Certified Depression Recovery Program Director for over 10 years, Member of Physician Committee for Responsible Medicine, Food Safe Certification, worked in professional kitchens, Member of the BC Conference Health Advisory Committee, and various other certificates on health and wellness.
With over 40 years cooking experience, Angela Poch has researched healthful living for her family and friends, leading her to become first a vegetarian, strict vegetarian, vegan, and is now a 'flexitarian" (2010 to current) where she leans heavily toward vegan but understands there are valid reasons to use some animal products, including the humanity of animals themselves. A flexitarian is a proud supporter of any farm that does it’s best to raise humane and healthy animals.
