Transtheoretical Model of behavior change

I wrote about wellness coaching yesterday, and in wellness coaching, one of the most important points is how to encourage one's clients' desired behavioral change. In the process of behavior change, people go back and forth between five different stages.
Stage 1 - pre-contemplation, aka I won't or I can't stage ... in this stage people don't have intention to change their behavior, because they don't think they have a problem, or they lack enough self-confidence
Stage 2 - contemplation, aka, I may stage ... in this stage, people are considering to start some behavioral change within the next 6 months, but at the same time, they have reluctance or ambivalent feelings toward the change
Stage 3 - preparation, aka, I will stage ... in this stage, people are preparing for their behavior change within the next months, and in this stage, ambivalent feelings are already resolved
Stage 4 - action stage, aka I'm doing stage, in this stage, people have already started their behavior change, but the length (duration) of the change is within 6 months, one of characteristics of this stage is that there is a risk of lapse or relapse
Stage 5 - maintenance stage, aka I'm still doing it stage, in this stage, eople are maintaining their behavior change over 6 months, and the change has become a part of their lifestyles. but, there is still a risk of lapse or relapse, one of preventative mothods is to have some positive role models or support from family, friends, or colleagues.
these consecutive stages are called as " Transtheoretical Model of behavior change (abbreviated as TTM),  this is what I'm learning at my wellness coaching program
