What is Health


As someone committed to changing the lives of as many people as possible, it can be very frustrating if you find your clients don’t follow your advice. Clients who are not getting results often don’t return so it’s vital you have all the skills you need to guide them on their behavioural change journey as well as influencing their eating habits. 


As you know, leading a healthy lifestyle is so much more than just what we eat. Health Coach Training provides you with an additional set of skills that enables you to support people in a bigger way through the entire lifestyle change process, and to maintain results longer term. This is a deeply rewarding experience and a route to exponentially growing your own confidence too.

With Health Coaching your clients can unlock their true potential for optimum health

Our Health Coach Training course has been designed for those already in the Nutrition Profession who would like to learn how to blend nutrition advice with a health coaching approach to support lasting behaviour change. Importantly, this training will show you how to move seamlessly between the two modalities.


Marcelle Dubruel, who runs this course,  is our Senior Health Coach trainer at Zest and since introducing Health Coaching into her nutrition practice 5 years ago she has never looked back!

Course Overview

Over the six weeks you will learn the Zest4life GREAT Coaching Process; a step by step Health Coaching Process to lead your clients from wanting to change to feeling inspired and motivated to reach a new level of health, and to sustain it too.

"Thank you for the certificate and for providing such a brilliant coaching course. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I feel it has provided the missing piece of the jigsaw. I can now add this to my list of 2020 achievements!"

"This programme has made the difference for me between simply imparting knowledge to my clients and hoping they would comply with my recommendation and really getting through to them. I am now able to build better rapport and trust and most importantly, the client feels more motivated to stick with the program and bring to the sessions a sense of urgency. I even use coaching elements now in my discovery calls and can feel that clients respond differently. They feel heard and often come up with a task to tackle before the first session."

Faiza Khan

"This coaching is absolutely invaluable. Our nutrition knowledge is only half the story. It’s just not enough to give clients a nutrition plan and expect them to follow it. The HeaIth Coaching course moves you on from purely educating your clients, and gives you the skills to be able to fully support and encourage them, improve compliance and keep them moving forwards towards their goals. The tools are a great way to engage with the client from the start and to really understand their motivations and build rapport."

Sylvia Salvendy

"Coaching makes a huge difference to client success and repeat business. This course provides valuable coaching techniques in a structured and clear format that isn’t overwhelming. It provides a solid foundation for the beginner as well as the more advanced coaching/NT practitioner to practise their techniques and become more confident- and more successful! I would highly recommend this course to everyone at Zest. Marcelle guides you through everything step by step and her passion for teaching this subject shines through very strongly. 5 stars!"

"I would encourage every Nutritional therapist to do this course. I wish I did this type of course years ago. In six weeks it has revitalised my whole thinking process about the way I work with clients"

Marienne Andrews

"Marcelle is a great teacher, making the course fun and engaging. The tools which you will learn are so important to helping people, particularly when they are stuck in a cycle and need the motivation to more forward with their lives."

Beth Tookey

"Money well spent! Invaluable tools that can be applied to not only our work as Nutritionists, but life in general!"
