How to launch a successful health coaching practice

Would you love to turn your passion for health and wellness into a new career in health coaching and start your own successful business?

Or are you perhaps already nearing the completion of your health coaching diploma and eager to take the next step in launching a thriving practice? 

Aspiring Health & Wellness Coaches often ask questions such as:

  • What does starting out as a Health Coach really look like?

  • How will I find clients for my Health Coaching business?

  • Can I make a living from Health Coaching? 

  • How can I grow a thriving Health Coaching practice?

At HCA, we fully understand these thoughts and are committed to guiding you through every step of the process, from student to successful, practising Health Coach. 

Here are 3 ways that we help you to prepare for and thrive in your Health Coaching practice post-graduation:

1. Done-for-you Health Coaching tools

Your HCA Diploma includes access to a beautifully designed library of ready-made health, nutrition and coaching tools and programmes that have been carefully created and refined through years of practical experience working effectively with health coaching clients. 

These tools serve as invaluable resources, guiding both Health Coaches and their clients on a journey towards holistic wellbeing. From personalised nutrition plans and time-management techniques to goal-setting and core value frameworks, they are designed to empower individuals to take ownership of their health and make sustainable lifestyle choices.

During the course, students learn and become experts in each tool. This helps them adjust their methods to fit each client's unique needs after qualifying, making it easier to hit the ground running as a Health Coach.

Students have shared how these tools have made a big difference not only in their journey to becoming a Health & Wellness Coach, but also to their own lives. 

“My belief and confidence in myself are currently sky-high, and the best part is that I never stop coaching and pushing myself to achieve more, which is something I struggled with in the past. I would make progress, then always fall back into bad habits, ending up back where I started. But now, armed with all the tools to see lasting progress, I can continue to build on them for a lifetime, and of course, help others to do the same.” - Chris, HCA Graduate 

2. An 'Essential Launch Formula'

With a team of highly experienced Nutrition Business Mentors and years of business mentoring to this profession, we have created a unique ‘Essential Launch Formula’ to help students create a successful career as a Health & Wellness Coach. This proven method has helped thousands of people to create thriving health coaching businesses.

Taught in the final pillar of the course, the formula covers crucial aspects such as:

  • Client acquisition strategies, 

  • Effective marketing techniques

  • Establishing your own unique brand identity

  • Creating winning client packages

All of which are integral to launching and sustaining a successful practice.

During the course, students apply the formula by recruiting case study clients. We supply all the essential materials for this case study recruitment process. Many students discover that their practice clients often convert into paying ones,who continue to work with them after graduation. For instance, Odette shared:

“All of my case studies have continued as paying clients because they did so well as case studies. One of them has now lost 38kg and changed her life around completely! Just one month after graduating, I am running a full-time practice that is fully booked for the next three months. This includes my case studies and 11 new clients.”

At HCA we also assist with determining the appropriate pricing for your health coaching services. Setting the right pricing structure involves considering various factors, including:

  • Your geographical location and area of practice

  • Your level of expertise, qualifications, and experience

  • Any complementary services you may offer, such as nutrition coaching, fitness programmes etc. 

  • The level of support you provide, including between-session support, laser coaching, and accountability through platforms like WhatsApp, emails etc. 

  • Your operating expenses, such as marketing, travel, and resource printing

All of these factors are thoroughly addressed during our Diploma program, ensuring you have the support and knowledge needed to establish and grow a successful health coaching business.

3. The Health Coaches Hub

When it comes to maintaining momentum and moving your health coaching practice forward, we have The Health Coaches Hub; a dynamic platform designed exclusively for HCA graduates. 

It’s easy to get caught in a confidence trap thinking that more qualifications are needed before fully launching your health coaching practice, however, we always say that the best way to become a good Health Coach is to start coaching! The Hub is like a holding hand that offers continuous support to shift your mindset, boost confidence, and overcome imposter syndrome as a new Health Coach.

Membership provides numerous benefits, including regular live professional development events, a dedicated Facebook group for valuable networking opportunities with like-minded professionals, group coaching sessions with seasoned business mentors, lead magnets and valuable done-for-you resources to use with clients each month. It also offers discounts on essential business services such as website creation, branding, and design. 

The Health Coaches Hub resources

Here’s what some of our current Hub members say:

"Thank you for creating the Hub, and for the wonderful people who run that. It keeps us from feeling at sea after leaving the course, and their passion for helping us is so evident and so special.” - HCA Graduate, Julie

"The Hub feels like your cheerleader to help launch your business, and it's so warm and supportive. Honestly, it's a no-brainer for me, and I'm so glad I did. The fact that it's the HCA family, it's just lovely. We've all been on the same journey.” - HCA Graduate, Elsa

The real value of the HUB for me isn’t in the plethora of information, tools and continuing education it provides (although that’s brilliant and so very useful). It’s in the support that is offered, the sense of community that it creates and nurtures and the opportunity to continue to feel like a real part of something as we find our feet, and grow our confidence in the world of Health Coaching and build our own businesses. I’m so grateful it exists!" - HCA Graduate, Caroline

Launching a successful health coaching practice with the right support and resources becomes an achievable and rewarding journey. At HCA, we are dedicated to guiding you every step of the way.
