Considering a Career as a Health Coach?

If you’re anything like me, than you understand what it’s like to not feel certain about your future goals. You wonder about your career path because, quite frankly, there are many wonderful paths to take. This is a problem that I have faced many times. I find myself intrigued by many topics and thus wanting to dabble in them all.

I keep multiple projects going on, all at once. Personally, I love to start and accomplish a plethora of tasks. However, when it comes to making a consistent income this way, it is a lot of work. One I personally enjoy, however, would prefer to enjoy on my own time and without the stress of wondering whether the work or piece will provide me with financial gain.

Recently, I dug deeper into my passions. I wrote out a list of things that interested me enough to consider making a career out of them. To my shock, it was a much smaller list than I had initially imagined.

On this list, I wrote that I had a desire to help cure others’ acne through holistic means and practices. Acne, having been a horrible and distracting problem for myself, is something I believe should not have to affect as many people as it does.

But how was I going to make this type of coaching a career much less something profitable?

That’s when I discovered that I didn’t have to go to medical school, I didn’t have to become a doctor to help others’ with their ailments. To begin sharing my knowledge professionally, I discovered that I could study to become a certified Health Coach!

The program that I enrolled in and have had tremendous success with is through the Health Coach Institute. The Health Coach Institute is accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF), the only globally recognized, independent credentialing program for coach practitioners, via their CCE program (Continuing Coach Education), the Canadian Health Coach Alliance, Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT), and the International Institute for Complimentary Therapists (IICT)

What’s amazing about health coaching is that it’s not all about physical health. As a health coach, you aren’t telling someone what to do and forcing them to do it, you’re helping guide individuals towards their own prosperous path. An individual’s path may include the desire to create healthier habits, cure their acne, lose weight, feel mentally fit and attractive, or just have someone by their side that holds them accountable. Regardless of your client’s desires, you put together individualized packages to help another person prosper.

Want a job that allows you the comfort and convenience of working from home? Or, a job that allows you to set your own hours? Most health coaches work from home or via 1-on-1 meet ups with their clients. These meet ups can even take place over Skype if your client is out of town or desires their coaching online.

You may be thinking to yourself, “I’m not that great at promoting myself, are there jobs that I can apply for as a health coach?

Health and life coaches are some of the most sought after professionals in today’s market. In a country that requires the majority of workers to live at a desk from 9 am to 5 pm, health, stress and overall company moral control the productivity of most of America’s offices. Businesses are catching on to this new way of life and investing millions of dollars into creating smoother running, more productive, and happier places to work. Health Coaches are hired to put together packages to help employees manage their stress, how to eat healthy on the go, and how to achieve high levels of productivity. Doctor’s offices are also changing quite rapidly because many individuals are seeking holistic practices and alternative remedies for their health needs. Health coaches are hired to work alongside or within offices and clinics in order to provide each client with their desired needs.

Needless to say, if you have a passion for helping others achieve their goals, taking an individualized approach to your work, and being your own boss by making your own schedule, I highly recommend becoming a health coach.

Earning your certification through the Health Coach Institute takes only 6 months! However, if you need a little more time, you can complete your certification within a year of signing up.

HCI Pros

After years of not accepting my flow and feeling guilty for my lack of being settled, I can happily say that I live in a new state of feeling calm. Not only have I found something that brings me joy, I still have time to pursue other passions that I haven’t quite cleared from my list 😉

I love you unconditionally!
