If you’ve been wondering “do I need a qualification to be to become a Health Coach?”, the answer is yes.

To practice as a Health Coach, you need to undertake health coaching training with a reputable and accredited training organisation. The length of the study programme is also important.

The demand for health coaches has never been greater as people are seeking ways to better their health and bring balance to their lives. The NHS in the UK is now employing health coaches to assist patients with diet and lifestyle and educate them on the importance of nutrition and exercise. This is part of a patient-focussed approach to help people overcome barriers on their health journey.

Health Coaches are trained to support their clients with stress management, weight loss, sleep routines, creating work/ life balance and advising on the best dietary and lifestyle approaches to address conditions such as diabetes and IBS.
