Why I Chose the Health Coach Course
Dr Joyce Reed, NHS trained Doctor and Practicing Health Coach
‘It’s changed everything for me! It’s improved my own health as I applied what I learnt through-out the course’
Before studying at CNM I worked as managing director for an academic training company, in the area of research impact. Before that I worked as an NHS Hospital doctor for 12 years.
It was the perfect match for me with a focus on naturopathy and coaching
I became interested in becoming a Health Coach for two main reasons. Firstly, after a personal health journey recovering from burnout after a 12-year career in the NHS working as a hospital doctor. Secondly, I was asked to deliver training in health and wellbeing to my current audience of academics who were also struggling with stress and burnout from pandemic working conditions. This galvanised my desire to return to health care, and through the UKHCA website I found CNM’s health coach course. It was the perfect match for me with a focus on naturopathy and coaching, helpful, friendly, and accommodating staff, and tutors. It’s been a life changing journey.
Finally I feel more empowered to be able to help people achieve lasting change in their lives
Its changed everything for me! It’s improved my own health as I applied what I learnt through-out the course. It has changed the course of my career, now I have my own business working with individual clients, which is hugely rewarding. Finally I feel more empowered to be able to help people achieve lasting change in their lives, using the powerful coaching techniques I have learnt through the course.
I now run my own business as a health coach, which is very meaningful work and is also bringing me a wage
I now run my own business as a health coach, which is very meaningful work and is also bringing me a wage. I am also using what I have learned to bring group coaching workshops to academics via my original academic training company.
I wanted to and subsequently have achieved a private health coach practice. I am helping people make lifestyle changes that work and making a living for myself too. I have also discovered more about naturopathy, and how powerful it can be. It is incredibly rewarding work!
