"None of this would have been possible without the HCA"
"I spent 18 years in marketing and then did a life coaching course but it didn’t feel quite right. I came across the HCA and spoke to Alison on my initial call with HCA and I knew instinctively this was for me. At the HCA 3 day live training I met Liane and we started a business together called the Health Coach Consultancy, and I've never looked back".
"This journey!! wow. I don't even know where to start"
"Biggest thing for me is personal growth and the personal health journey for me. I am 10 steps up from the person I was last year! The satisfaction you get from working with people being able to be that facilitator for change has been so satisfying for me and seeing the results has been life changing. A beautiful amazing journey. Thank you."
