Help Women Suffering from Secondhand StressBy supporting our Women-Life-Freedom Initiative
Our Woman-Life-Freedom Initiative provides free health coaching to women living in America and affected by the suffering of their families, friends and fellow citizens in their countries of origin, i.e., countries ravaged by repression and violence. These women often suffer (silently) from stress, anxiety, fear and hopelessness.
Our focus is on women who are contributing members of their community yet cannot afford professional help. Their diminishing wellbeing, if not addressed, will erode their productivity, affect their physical health and have a ripple effect around them. In many cases, they can be helped by health coaching, a much less expensive and stigmatized alternative to medical treatment. Health coaching is a non-medical approach for improving and maintaining one’s health and wellness. It focuses on the person as a whole—mind, body, and spirit. Per Harvard Publishing “Coaching is effective for people managing a variety of health conditions.”1
You may know a woman to help, in which case you can contribute using the Sponsor A Woman You Know option to help her. Else, you can support the Initiative with the Sponsor Women In Need Sponsor Women In Need option. These contributions are pooled to help women identified by local community channels with whom we collaborate.
Coaching prices for the Initiative are discounted by 5% from our normal pricing. In addition, we contribute 5% of our corporate earnings to the Initiative.
Candidates must be 18 or older, be in the U.S. when receiving health coaching and be able to communicate in English.
If you would like to sponsor a woman who is not in financial need, you are giving a “gift”. Please use our Gift Card option with normal coaching prices.

What is health coaching?
Health and wellness coaches are trained professionals who support you to get through life challenges. For example, it’s no secret that stress levels in modern society are shooting up—affecting people’s lifestyles and health by triggering an illness or worsening an existing health issue. In women, chronic stress can cause depression, anxiety, menstrual problems, obesity, and change in bowel movements. Finding a support system to cope with life’s increasing demands makes good sense; it improves quality of life and saves future health care costs. This is where health and wellness coaches come into the picture.
