HEALTH COACH AND WHOLEFOODS COOK

Two years

Starts September 2017

This is a Health Coach plus course, enabling you to not only guide people to a healthier diet and lifestyle, but also to give expert cooking tuition, shiatsu bodywork sessions, Do-in exercise and meditation instruction, and additionally to work as a wholefoods or vegetarian caterer. With this package you can guide and support your clients through all the changes they need to transform their health and lives.

To take this training course you first need to complete the Holistic Nutrition for Body and Soul course, which lays a foundation in developing your own health and in all the subjects that you will take to a professional level on this course.

This second year will deepen your understanding of health and healing, and your holistic picture of how daily food, physical health, lifestyle, emotions and life purpose all affect each other, and can all be used to develop strong physical health and inner healing.

If you are looking for an exciting new career helping others in a holistic way, this is the course will give you several options. On completing this course many of our students have set themselves up as Health Coaches, have started cooking classes or pop-up restaurants, or found work in vegetarian cafes.
