Ephraim aims to promote happiness and health through coaching programme

Employers and employees can realise the benefits of leading a happy and healthy lifestyle thanks to the launch of a new holistic health counselling business.

Preston Ephraim, who runs Preston J Ephraim Health Coaching Services, works on an individual, group and corporate basis.

And with the rising cost of health care in Bermuda, he believes now it is more important than ever to help reduce staff absenteeism, boost productivity and save companies money on their premiums, while cutting stress levels among employees.

Through three and six-month step-by-step coaching programmes, Mr Ephraim claims that his students will see the benefits of having more energy and being more clear and focused on the task at hand, as well as learning to cook for themselves and the family and follow a good diet.

“It is all about creating a more wholesome life for yourself,” he said.

“It ranges from creating healthier relationships inside of themselves and also on the exterior part of their life.”

By focusing in on a number of factors to people's lives, Mr Ephraim said that you can do your job more effectively, improve your nutrition and build better relationships with others.

With three years experience as a police officer behind him, Mr Ephraim is well qualified for dealing with almost every situation.

Indeed his work with Bermuda Police Service (BPS) both on the beat and in providing support for nutrition programmes within the force combined with the time spent running his own fitness company in Washington DC for two years as well as successfully completing a course at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York have stood him in good stead.

Mr Ephraim currently works with individuals and groups of five or more and is the health coach for the new recruits at the BPS and will be starting his first corporate programme with employees from HWP in the New Year.

His client list ranges from students in the US, the UK, Canada and Mexico and he has also launched off into public speaking at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.

An increase in the number of people affected by diabetes and heart disease has inspired Mr Ephraim to get to the core of the problem and to effect changes in people's lifestyle and eating habits via setting them goals and targets to achieve on a weekly basis.

“The organisations are acknowledging right now that they need to do something for their employees because there are issues with people being overweight, not feeling good about themselves and getting highly stressed,” he said.

“It is my job to help them find out how to achieve higher productivity levels, to eat better foods and create healthier relationships.”
