Chronic Condition Coaching Clinic
James Cook University is offering people living with chronic conditions access to their Chronic Condition Coaching Clinic (CCCC). The clinic provides one-to-one support and coaching to assist people to optimally manage their chronic health condition(s).
Together with a Registered Nurse coach, you will:
- Move towards your own vision of optimal wellness and functioning.
- Develop your skills and confidence in effective self-management of your chronic conditions(s), in partnership with your health care providers.
- Define your health related goals and aspirations.
We are open selected Monday mornings and/or afternoons (2.30pm-4.30pm) and Thursday afternoons (1.00pm-5.00pm) to meet with patients by appointment. The initial hour appointment is at a cost of $40. For further information, email Dr Kristin Wicking on [email protected]
"I have several chronic conditions which have seriously impacted my life. I have received all sorts of related healthcare support but just have never quite been able to lift myself. I stumbled by Kristin’s clinic by chance. I am hugely grateful, it has changed my life. Most significantly her methodology has helped me learn to manage overwhelm by focusing on small goals, experimenting with new life hopes and dreams, and not being afraid to ‘fail’, reorientate and try afresh. My life is forever changed as a result. I increasingly have a quality of life I never thought I could regain. Thank you Kristin.
