Health and Lifestyle Coach Uses Personal Story to Launch Health Catalyst, Help Busy Professionals Reduce Stress and Make Life Changes

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 13, 2005

Erin Owen, Health and Lifestyle Coach, uses her personal story to launch Health Catalyst, a Philadelphia, PA-based practice that assists corporate executives, busy professionals, mothers, and health practitioners in creating healthy lifestyles.

A few years ago, Erin Owen was a successful professional, who consulted with international clients on managing complex projects and organizational change. She was a rising star at her organization, and even received corporate stock; however, she suffered with high levels of stress, problems with weight and digestive problems, and her personal relationships were strained. While Owen was “intellectually stimulated” at work, she felt “emotionally disconnected,” and found it difficult to be optimally productive at work and at home.

After struggling with a series of increasingly debilitating health issues, Owen made the choice to leave the corporate world behind, and start Health Catalyst. Now, she is two dress sizes smaller, illness and prescription drug-free, and uses her personal challenges to inspire her clients. Owen, who holds a Masters in Business Administration from Northwestern University, received instruction at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York and the Hopkins-Nanjing Center for International Studies in Nanjing.

A certified Holistic Health Coach, Owen consults with busy professionals and corporate executives and managers on how to reduce stress, make healthier food choices, and encourage healthy living. Earlier this year, Owen led a discussion on Heart-Healthy Living to local health practitioners during the National Heart Health Month.

Primarily, Health Catalyst works with corporate clients who want to decrease presenteeism in their employees (workers who are physically present at work, but are not productive due to illness or other diseases, including hypertension, as defined in Harvard Business Review, October 2004, Vol. 82, Issue 10), and conducts workshops and makes presentations to companies, including Philadelphia area health and pharmaceutical businesses that want to increase their employees productivity.

"Employers are beginning to make the connection," observed Owen "that the choices employees make about food, exercise - even relationships - affect how present and productive they are on

The job, and that affects the bottom line."

In addition, Health Catalyst conducts individual sessions with mothers and moms-to-be on balancing family responsibilities and personal needs, and coaches health practitioners on taking care of themselves, while providing comfort and care to others.

Judy Evans (last name changed to protect the reenergized) completed the Health Catalyst program in fall 2004. With a busy calendar, late work days and nights, and few days to just rest and relax, the sixty-plus community service advocate needed more balance in her life. Evans gained the tools to help her balance her life and decrease stress, including the supporting materials, hands-on healthy food demonstrations, and shopping excursions that Health Catalyst offered.

“There’s a need for balance,” Evans opined, and having completed the health Catalyst program, she is more aware about making healthier food choices, and has even lessened work hours. “No more burning the midnight oil,” Evans enthused.

Steve Dolan, a forty-two-year-old IT management consultant, was working at a “fairly stressful job” that required him to frequently travel throughout the Philadelphia, PA and Washington, DC areas. When he began consultations with Health Catalyst, Dolan’s primary goal was to “be able to manage my personal time.” Married with children, Dolan found that he was rarely spending quality time with his family – his life was out of balance.

After working with Health Catalyst during the six-month coaching session, Dolan said that his primary goal was to learn how to “wrestle control over life and (work) demands,” and as a result of coaching sessions, he’s learned how to balance “work and home and spirituality and children.” Steve Dolan now has regular “date nights” with his wife, and he’s started a schedule to help separate work responsibilities from family time. Dolan has even implemented a time each day to exercise. “I was wound tight as a top,” Dolan said, but now he’s “relaxed and feeling good about having a plan.”
