Binan Madani – Health Coach
Being a pharmacist meant I knew about medicines’ effect on our bodies, I always believed there were other ways to help people.
What date did you graduate?
What did you do before studying at CNM?
I am pharmacist and used to work in a pharmaceutical company when I was in Dubai. Then I worked as a biology teacher for a high school in Cardiff.
What made you want to become a Health Coach?
Being a pharmacist and having a good knowledge about the medicines and their effect on our bodies I always believed that I could still help people in different ways. I was always passionate about holistic approaches and helping people in another way apart from medicines to improve their lives through healthier habits and behaviours. So when I moved to the UK I started searching and came across the CNM Health Coach program and I said to myself : yes that’s what I am looking for. So I did the course and now I am specialising more in chronic disease holistic nutritional coaching, helping people with diabetes and autoimmune diseases.
