What Can I Do As a Holistic Health Coach?

Help clients with behavior change, mindset, and nutrition as a Certified Holistic Health Coach

As an AFPA Certified Holistic Health Coach trained in natural complementary nutrition, you’ll be able to:

  • Coach and educate clients on how to achieve and sustain healthy habits as part of a daily routine that includes eating healthy, exercising, managing triggers and eliminating stress, maintaining healthy relationships, and more.
  • Empower your clients to achieve optimal and lasting health by addressing any imbalances caused by improper nutrition, a stressful lifestyle, poor sleep quality, a lack of exercise, and more.
  • Educate clients on how to identify and change any sources of ill health.
  • Create strategies for identifying healthy environments and start a support program to help clients in reaching their personal wellness objectives.
  • Recognize when it is necessary to refer clients to their primary care physicians for treatments and/or diagnoses and learn how to communicate this to your client.

Is Holistic Health Coaching Right For Me?

You’re interested in working with clients one-on-one and guiding them toward how making lasting, meaningful behavioral changes to enhance their lives.

If these benefits of being a Holistic Health Coach excite you, then you’re in the right place:

  • Flexibility: With a Holistic Counselor Certification, you can work for yourself or at a medical office, wellness center, spa, gym, training center, university, and beyond. Many corporations are also hiring health coaches as part of wellness programs that provide incentives for employees who make healthy choices and changes. You can work one-on-one with clients on your own time or full-time as part of a care team with other health professionals to help treat chronic disease.
  • Easy Entry: You could spend years going to school to become a doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant—or you could get your Holistic Health Coach certification and bring your passion and expertise to clients more quickly. If you aren’t science savvy or don’t have the tens of thousands of dollars needed for a four-year degree, health coaching is a great way to put your passion into practice sooner.
  • Change-Maker: Teaching clients how to implement lasting behavior change through evidence-based methods is extremely rewarding—for you, your clients, and their families. As a Holistic Health Coach, you have the skills to battle the epidemic of chronic disease one person at a time.

Detailed and In-Depth Learning

This certification offers far more learning opportunities, sub courses, and overall detail into becoming a holistic health coach. I was comparing this certification to many others that competitors offer and none were as in-depth and complete for the price. I’ve already recommended AFPA to a couple friends who will be signing up for their individual certifications soon!

Megan! So happy to hear your Holistic Health Coach Certification went so well. We loved your equally in-depth approach!
