My Health Coach diploma has been a fantastic investment!

CNM’s Health Coach training has given me the tools and the confidence to be an outstanding Health Coach. I’m thrilled to be doing a job which offers flexibility and work-life balance; also enabling me to help others make positive and long-lasting dietary and lifestyle changes.

‘Switching to a plant-based diet changed my life’

I was in an incredibly demanding profession as a Simulation & Training Consultant in the Aerospace and Defence arena, which often involved working away from home for up to weeks or even months at a time. I was making poor dietary choices and it was starting to take its toll on my health; I was overweight, exhausted and unhappy. I knew it was a sign to reflect on what was important and how my priorities needed to change.

I started to make small changes like moving more and eating better. I then switched to a plant-based diet and I began to feel more energetic and like my old self. I lost over 30lbs and even completed my first half marathon in my 40s.

‘I was drawn to CNM’s naturopathic approach’

I really enjoyed learning about the positive effects of good nutrition and being more active. I had seen CNM at a number of expos over the last few years and I was curious about how I could take my knowledge further. What attracted me to CNM was its naturopathic, ‘food first’ approach. Discovering that CNM had launched their Health Coach diploma with a programme that supported these principles, including anatomy and physiology, nutrition and fitness, was fantastic. I felt the course was made just for me, so I jumped at it!

‘The business modules and practical training were invaluable’

All the course modules were comprehensive and the tutors were extremely supportive and knowledgeable. The content made me curious to examine the impact of the lifestyle decisions we make every day. The practical client coaching sessions were invaluable and really brought the whole programme to life. As part of the diploma, there is whole module dedicated to setting up and marketing your health coaching business. The business modules really helped me to think about what I want my practice to be and the services I can offer clients. It also gave me the confidence to put myself out there!

I’m now practicing as a Health Coach in my own business, AdamsEve Health & Wellness, where I provide individual coaching, independent consultancy, corporate workshops and group coaching programmes. Gaining my Health Coach diploma has been a fantastic investment.
