Health Coach training

Despite advances in medical sciences, the UK is still faced with some very basic challenges to long term health.

Obesity and Diabetes

The number of obese adults is forecast to rise by 73% over the next 20 years from to 26 million people, resulting in more than a million extra cases of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Stress

Stress and chronic ill health in the workplace costs £100bn

Smoking

Every year, over 100,000 smokers in the UK die from smoking related causes.

We have developed an easy way to become involved in the emerging multi million pound industry of personal health. Already the nation spends millions on trying to improve physical fitness whilst being unable to address simple and easily managed habit control.

Our system depends upon you delivering a simplified system of interventions that have been refined within our clinics over 30 years.

This system will appeal to anyone who has a sincere interest in health and wellbeing.
