I have had a long-standing interest in health and wellbeing space due to my personal health journey. Because I was determined to find the answers my doctor struggled to help with, I decided to take the path of learning how to live well and thrive by educating myself on the principles of well-balanced nutrition, lifestyle and other self-help holistic practices.
What attracted you to CNM’s Health Coach course?
The program seemed well designed, covering a lot of topics I found interesting. I liked the fact that I could study in the comfort of my own home and at the time it was convenient to me, while still having a full-time job. I did my own research too and read some great reviews from former graduates which made me go for it.
What did you enjoy most about the course?
I loved exploring how human body works and found it truly fascinating! Also, learning about a holistic and naturopathic approach to health as well as healing from many different conditions and reversing symptoms. I tested some of the things on myself before I started this course, so I knew they are working, but having access to a high quality and science-based content helped me massively to expand my knowledge.
How has studying the Health Coach diploma changed your life?
Completely! Studying health coaching became my passion very quickly, without a doubt! I decided to change direction in my life and career, and I am now practicing Health & Behavioural Change Coach.
What are you doing now that you are qualified?
I set up my own coaching business Nurture & Heal in January (https://www.nurtureandhealuk.com/). I’m currently supporting National Diabetes Prevention Program by delivering group coaching sessions for people with pre-diabetes. I started creating my brand on social media and building my network as I’m looking to expand and start supporting people with other health concerns that I specialise at.
What do you love about being a Health Coach?
One of the most rewarding aspects of my role is helping individuals to understand themselves and their body better, which they find empowering. I also love supporting people going through their desired behavioural transformation and seeing them achieve the goals that previously seemed impossible to them.
