Health Coach Comcare Trust location Canterbury.

Primary care organisations have been working with NGOs, Te Whatu Ora-Health New Zealand service users and international experts over the past six years to develop a new way to provide convenient, personalised care and support for people experiencing mental distress or addiction challenges.  The Te Tumu Waiora model of care is the culmination of that work.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Health Coach to join the Comcare/Te Tumu Waiora team, working between the Rakaia Medical Centre and the Tinwald Medical Centre.

The Health Coach offers continuity of care as well as emotional support and guidance. Coaches are part of the general practice team but also help people to navigate other services and to get access to any social and cultural support they may need.

The Health Coach may be a registered or unregistered health practitioner who can help patients with self-management support and with achieving their goals for improved mental wellbeing, lifestyle or behaviour change.

It is desirable that applicants have a New Zealand Certificate in Health and Wellbeing Level 4 - Mental Health and Addiction Support (or equivalent qualification) or will need to be committed to studying towards one.
