Announcing MSAA's new Life Coaching Program

MSAA is now offering Life Coaching to assist individuals affected by multiple sclerosis.

Life coaching involves discovering new ways to help cope with life challenges. We want the MSAA Life Coaching Program to focus specifically on the life challenges you or someone you know with MS might be facing.

More on Life Coaching

Based on the success of Duke University Center for Integrative Medicine’s Health Coaching Program, MSAA is offering Life Coaching to individuals affected by multiple sclerosis. MSAA’s life coach teaches problem-solving strategies using real-life events to help people with MS find practical solutions. Group sessions will be conducted via telephone and online. Some areas of focus will include the following:

  • Adjustment to the illness, including the long-term impact of living with MS
  • Health and wellness issues
  • Stress management
  • Work/life balance
  • Family relationships
  • Medication adherence issues
  • Self advocacy
  • Resource identification
  • Behavioral approaches to pain management
  • Planning for the future

Life Coaching typically involves weekly toll-free telephone sessions and a variety of “homework” type assignments to reflect upon between coaching sessions.

A few words from a woman with MS who benefited from MSAA's Life Coaching Program:

“The MSAA Life Coaching Program is extremely helpful. It is hard enough accepting a lot of the changes that come with MS and when the changes change you, this is even harder. The Life Coaching Program has helped me see that all is not lost, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”
- Joyce S., MSAA Client
