Our accreditations mean you can join independent industry associations such as the UK & International Health Coaches Association, the Royal Society for Public Health, and the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

LEVEL 6 ADVANCED DIPLOMA IN HEALTH COACHING AND NUTRITIONAL THERAPY FAQ's

What is the main difference between this course and your Level 5 Health and Nutrition Coaching course?

This course builds on the Level 5, and includes the Nutritional Therapy certification.  This certification then allows you to work as both a Health Coach and a Nutritional Therapist.   You would be able to register with the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners and work as a certified Nutritional Therapist (and Health Coach).   Your scope of practice is much broader as you are dual qualified.

 

What is the average duration of this course? 

We recommend studying a minimum of 7 hours per week, which will take two years to complete.   If you can commit any extra study hours this will reduce the duration.

Are there assignments, exams and case studies?  How is the course assessed?

At the end of most of the modules there will be some type of assignment, usually short essay style, Q&A or self-reflection.  There is also an end of course knowledge review.   All learners have to undertake 25 coaching sessions, and 25 nutritional therapy sessions, which constitutes your case studies.  We give ample training prior to this, and help our learners to access people looking to volunteer.

Do you provide client forms and programmes?

We provide you with a wide range of client forms, covering both coaching and nutrition. Whilst you are free to use these, we always encourage you to create your own when you know how you best work.  We also provide some generic programmes for you, and again, we provide these to use, but more importantly to show you how to create your own that are unique to you, and what you offer.

Working generically is not the best way when it comes to working with clients, and we teach you how to tailor the programmes to suit your clients.  We also teach how to work with companies that will provide you with blood testing and diagnostic services, so that you can offer an even fuller service to your clients. 

What is the difference with all the different certifications available with the course?

Embedded within our course we have various different accreditations, however, we have found that not all of our learners want or need each one, and so we now have a base cost for the course, which includes the UKIHCA Approved AHG Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Integrative Health and Nutrition Coaching, and the AHG Level 6 Advanced Diploma in Health Coaching & Nutritional Therapy which all learners receive upon successful completion.  This will allow the graduate to become a full member of both the UK & International Health Coaches Association, and the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

We also give our learners the opportunity to obtain qualifications, which some find useful if they are applying for Higher Education courses, or applying for management roles.  The RSPH certificate is also useful, as this allows the graduate to join the Royal Society for Public Health.   The lessons do not change if the candidate opts not to receive the additional certification.

What support is available during and after the course?

We have an experienced team, who are very happy to help our students (and graduates), and as they all have different specialisms, they work with our Student Support team, who ensures that you get help from the right person.  We also have a dedicated online portal where our students can interact with fellow students, graduates, mentors, and our team.   There is always someone online to help! 

How long do I keep access to the course for?

Once you graduate, you can join our alumni, with access to the course materials for the lifetime of the course that you have booked.

Many of our graduates become student mentors, and as a thank-you gesture, they will get access to all course upgrades for the duration.

What are the career prospects for Health Coaches and Nutritional Therapists?
Health Coaching is the fastest growing profession within the health and wellbeing industry.   The NHS currently employ around  1,300 Health Coaches (as of April 2024), and are looking to grow this number.  Many Health Coaches are attached to GP surgeries, and there is a growing number of businesses that use Health Coaches for employee wellbeing.   We also teach our graduates how to work with 1-on-1 clients, group coaching, and how to develop coaching programmes, which gives them the best start in running their own coaching practice. Health Coaches charge anywhere between £50 and £100 per session, depending on where they are based.

Nutritional Therapy is very specialised, and most therapists qualified to Level 6 charge anywhere between £100 and £250 per session.
