The health and wellness coaching industry has absolutely been booming over the past decade, helping people build health (amidst our very broken “healthcare” system), recover from chronic illnesses, and look and feel their best. Multiple health coach training programs exist that train professionals to offer nutrition and lifestyle advice from the holistic, integrative, and functional philosophies, in response to increases in acute chronic illness, and obesity in our society due to our failing conventional healthcare system and low quality food supply.
Because of the increased awareness of the skin-health link, more aestheticians, cosmetologists, and other practitioners who support skincare clients have chosen to get certified as health coaches.
There are many quality health coaching programs to choose from, but whichever one you choose, it’s important to understand that as a health coach, you will have to practice under specific rules and guidelines to remain within your scope.
Join us for a free live webinar, Safety in the Health Coaching Profession, Thursday, November 1 at 1pm EDT.
Our special guest is Carmen Hunter, who is the founder of the Institute for Functional Health Coaching. Carmen will cover a topic that’s just as important as nutrition and health coaching–and that is the subject of safety in the health coaching profession–namely how to help your clients while staying within your scope of practice.
You may have heard that it is illegal to give nutritional advice to clients unless you are a state licensed or board certified nutritionist (some states do require that), registered dietitian, or licensed medical professional. That is only partly true–and as a health coach, there are strict guidelines on what you can and can’t recommend to your clients.
In this webinar, Safety in the Health Coaching Profession, Carmen’s going to break it all down for you. You’ll learn:
- What you need to get started
- What safe language means and how to use it
- How you can still coach people and reduce your risk
- What does general approach mean
- Examples of unsafe language and replacement ideas and practices
- How you can still practice customized coaching
