Suni Apter

Functional Health Coach & Yoga Teacher 

Suni's number one life long goal since childhood has been to be happy. Learning early that it is hard to be happy if you don't feel well, physically, mentally, or emotionally. She has dedicated her adult life to becoming an expert in health.

 

Starting her journey in London, Suni studied Exercise & Sports Nutrition. Shortly after graduating, she was employed full-time by the Saudi Royal Family. She spent many wonderful years working for the Royal Family, during which time she was also able to expand her portfolio of skills.

 

After completing her studies in Stott Pilates and Ashtanga Yoga she was starting to grasp the concept that to achieve and maintain health was a delicate balancing act of many areas of one's life, including some areas that are often overlooked by conventional medicine.

 

A number of years ago Suni was introduced to Functional Medicine. Science-backed, integrated medicine that gets to the root of diseases instead of just masking the symptoms. Sounds good, right? Functional Medicine understands the value of leading a healthy lifestyle, but often making changes to one's current routine can seem impossible.

 

Seeing Functional Medicine as the future for health care, Suni went to study Functional Health Coaching at the Kresser Institute, where she is currently enrolled. As a health coach Suni specializes in helping her clients bring about lasting change, so they can build the health & lives they desire. 

 

To be able to provide her clients with the best care Suni dedicates her self to constantly expanding her knowledge. Suni recently completed The Science of Well-being with Yale University and regularly attends training with her yoga teacher Jason Crandell in San Francisco.

Health Coaches?

Health coaches are experts on human behavior, motivation, and health. 

They are “change agents” who help their clients set and achieve health goals and build new habits. How do they do this?

  • Coaches help people discover the “why” behind their desired health change.

  • They empower people as experts on their own bodies, minds, and circumstances.

  • They help people identify challenges and blind spots that are preventing change.

  • They provide support and accountability.

  • They use their broad knowledge of health and wellness to help people navigate a variety of health concerns.

What do you study to become a Health Coach?

As a health coach, my goal is to work with clients to create new behavior patterns that bring about lasting change.

 

To achieve this I have been trained in the science of behavior change. Including but not limited to Positive Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, and the Transtheoretical Model. 

 

As the name implies I have also received training in nutrition, chronic diseases, and how to manage them.     

 

I am studying health coaching at the Kresser Institute. The Kresser Institute program is approved by the National Board of Health and Wellness Coaches.
