Become a Nutritional Therapist
If you want to become a Nutritional Therapist, a common misconception is that you can’t make money and have a fulfilling career as an alternative health practitioner. To dispel these myths, we’ve jotted down some of the ways our graduates have gone on to create financial independence – whilst having a life full of purpose and passion.
How to make a great living doing what you love
Working with your client’s one-on-one.
We will show you exactly how to guide your clients through a tried and tested health protocol, creating total wellness in the shortest possible time.
The world is your clinical practice.
Modern technology means that you are no longer limited to working with clients in person. Literally, the world is at your fingertips, you can run your practice from any location whilst treating people from anywhere in the world.
Nutritional Therapists charge varying amounts for individual consultations, based on their experience.
Typically, as a new practitioner, you will charge £40 – £60 per hourly session, increasing to £60-£100 per session once you are more experienced.
Most people will see you about 12 times over the course of 6 months.
Whether in person, or as ‘virtual attendees’, group sessions release you from the trap of trading ‘time for money’. Technology opens the door for you to share your skills and knowledge with small or larger groups of people. Some of our post graduates have gone on to run successful membership sites for perimenopausal and menopausal women. Other examples of how our graduates reach more people is how they run training for specific named diseases. This may be based on conditions such as heart health, diabetes, fibromyalgia, IBS etc.
A great ‘crowd pleaser’, are half or full day food preparation demos (e.g. raw food, fermented foods, raw chocolate)…..honestly, the list of what you can do with an excited group of people is endless.
The point is, you’re offering your services to more people at once, earning you more per hour whilst adding value to your clients.
Become a Nutritional Healing Trainer
Become an affiliate and deliver our Health on a Plate Courses.
Many of our post graduates go on to become Health on a Plate Trainers. This is a ‘training the trainer programme’ where we teach you how to deliver our popular, purpose built, pre-written ‘Health on a Plate Course’. It can be run privately or in different settings, including schools and the workplace.
FLEXIBILITY: this 20-hour course is flexible and can be run over 8 weeks (2 and a half hours per session) or over a weekend.
Not only is this a brilliant way to earn money, it’s a fantastic opportunity to build your private practice.
Fees vary, but in general we encourage you to charge individuals at least £225 per personfor the Health on a Plate Course.
These are just some of the options available to you. Other income streams created by our graduates include;
- Becoming a writer: e.g. nutrition books, professional blogger, cookbooks
- Corporate wellness coaches, taking Nutrition into the workplace
- Consulting at gyms, fitness studios and spas
- Developing health products (food and beverage, skincare etc.)
- Working as a natural food chef
- Retailing nutritional supplements
- Getting involved with healthy eating school programmes
- Opening a health-focused restaurant/cafe or health food shop
Coupling a spiritual approach to wealth with a clear plan of ACTION can bring you the abundance you want in your life. Nutritional Healing may be a calling, but it’s not a hobby. We need our therapists to thrive (as they are the antidote to a spiralling epidemic of illness and disease).
Quite commonly, individuals attracted to the healing arts can run unhelpful inner scripts such as;
‘I can’t be spiritual and financially abundant at the same time’.
Money will not corrupt you or turn you into a greedy and unethical person. Money is simply stored energy – this energy is attracted to your passion, enthusiasm, kindness, caring and giving. You can and will attract money by doing what you love, helping others and contributing to a better, healthier world.
That’s not to say that you don’t have real concerns about your career. We all have bills to pay, a family to contribute too and a life we want to live without worry. Changing direction can throw up issues about stability and prosperity that we take seriously, which is why we teach you HOW TO run a successful business as well as how to help people heal.
