Work/Life Balance and employee well-being are mentioned all the time in missions statements and recruitment materials — but truly great companies back up that talk with action and go way beyond one-size-fits-all corporate wellness perks such as gym memberships or an on-site fitness room.
Workplace Wellness Programs from Allons-y Coaching support your employees in establishing the healthy habits and unique balanced lifestyle they need to succeed at work, at home, and in life. This employee benefit can lift morale, strengthen company loyalty, fill employees with a sense of purpose, and be another jewel in your recruitment packages.
Individual & Small Group Coaching • Holistic Wellness Seminars • Educational Workshops
Wellness coaching can be made available to many employees for the price of a single adjustable standing desk. Focused topics, such as reversing prediabetes, improving sleep, boosting the immune system, and healthy snacking can contribute to the overall physical and emotional health of your workforce. This initiative will help keep healthcare expenses in line while reducing costly employee absences.
The secret to making wellness coaching work is to de-stigmatize self-improvement. Often, employees with the most needs will be hesitant to participate for fear of it reflecting poorly in the eyes of management and peers. I encourage employers to tell employees that their overall health and well-being is important, therefore participation in wellness programs is encouraged, but also confidential when needed. By connecting employees (often across different departments) who share life experiences, needs, or challenges, you strengthen internal communities as those participants rally to help each other succeed.
Stress Management • Healthy Body • Healthy Sleep • Productivity
Once we identify the needs your employees have, I will create a custom-tailored plan — from one-time, quarterly, or annual events to weekly or monthly workshops and seminars. Since I create the programs and deliver them myself, I can be very agile all along the development process and keep the content aligned to goals and within available budgets. I can work with small businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and everyone between.
Health Coaching sessions work best 1:1 or with 8 to 15 people; broader topics can be covered in larger seminars open to all employees or large groups. Some subjects, such as healthy snacking or fitness and exercise, carry little stigma. Others such as weight loss and prediabetes require a more discreet setting. Therefore, some programs can be open to all while others are confidential in nature. Sessions can be held via telephone or video chat, or in a secure conference room, or a nearby location. Some companies also prefer to host separate sessions for junior staff and senior management. One-on-one wellness coaching is available.

... all the extra things she does
Stella is very dedicated to our students and their learning. She wants them to have a good experience and is very organized and enthusiastic. Stella makes good use of the time, ensuring that her students enjoy not just the content area, but also being in class. We are really happy to have Stella teach with us and we appreciate how seriously she takes her teaching and all the extra things she does.
Passion and love for people's health
Health and wellness has more than one component and, as a gym owner, I know that finding and working with professionals in the industry that share the same commitment can be difficult. When I met Stella, I could tell immediately that she had a passion and love for people's health and wellness and I knew I wanted her as part of my team.
Science as well as Heart
Trying to approach lifestyle change can be daunting. Many of us struggle with habits that seem to have a life of their own, unaffected by any efforts we make. To find a coach who brings science as well as heart to the process is a gift. Stella Loichot is one such coach and I highly recommend her class! Over the course of three months, Stella helped a diverse group shift from negative self-assessments to a more compassionate understanding of why our habits developed in the first place. Along with tracking and noticing what was true, she brought to our awareness current research, helping us relax about our goals—shifting from a need for immediate results to more long-term, sustainable plans. As Stella was teaching us how we could befriend our bodies, the entire group began to open like a flower that has found a refreshing stream nearby. Such a gift—to find community and kindness as we work to bring healthy patterns to our lives.
With the help of Stella, we created an 8-week program designed to tackle the struggles of today's working professionals to manage their stress, eating habits and workout routines and provided the tools for them to be successful. Working will Stella has been a pleasure and anyone that gets the opportunity will see her unmatched professionalism.
What’s Stella’s secret sauce?
If you ever make your way into one of Stella’s workshops, you’d be glad you did. I attended her session on sleep in a recent ICF event. Two hours later found myself with eyes wide-open and eager to put to immediate practice all that I learned. What’s Stella’s secret sauce? It may be a blend of science-based easy explanations, non-judgmental and compassionate perspectives, gentle humor, and a passion for self-discovery and action. Hers are not just words – she walks the talk! We got a glimpse of her personal struggle with sleeping well and the creativity in her approach to finding a solution. And she helped us realize that having a good night sleeps is not only important but is also within everybody’s reach, even if getting there may be outside their comfort zone.
