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!

“My clients transform before my eyes, and I love my job” Marcelle Dubruel

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.  

As part of the course, you are invited to attend two of our Health Coach Training Clinics. These sessions are a great opportunity to consolidate what you will have learnt during the course.

You will also be part of a supportive Facebook Group throughout the course to share your experiences and successes.


You will learn to use a toolkit of specialist Health Coaching tools, designed for Nutrition Professionals, so that you can simply and professionally integrate Health Coaching into your existing practice.


Following successful completion of the course you will become a certified health coach and be awarded the Zest4life ‘Health Coaching Skills for Nutrition Professionals’ Certificate. You will be able to use the Health Coaching Badge on your website and in your marketing. 

This course is recognised by NTOI and BANT as 10 hours of active CPD.

"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!"

  • How much does it cost?
    The monthly membership costs £59 a month (inc VAT) and the price will remain the same for life. The price will increase the next time the doors are open, though your price will always remain the same. You can also choose to pay £295 for six months for the price of five months, so you get one month included for free.
  • How long do I need to commit for?
    You can be a Zestie as long as you like! The minimum period is just one month. Your membership fee is paid monthly and you can stop your membership at any time. However if you leave you won't be able to rejoin until the next time we open for enrolment - usually every 6 months. If you take the six month option for £295 then your initial contract length is six months. When the six months ends you can choose to stay on for another six months at £295 or pay £59 per month, or leave. The choice is entirely up to you.
  • How much time does it take to work through all the Club membership training modules?
    The programmes in our Training Academy are available for you to access in bite-sized chunks at any time, 24/7. If you can find just one hour each week to watch the lessons, together with 1-2 hours to put what you have learnt into practice, you will make steady progress. If you have more time you can work through the all modules at your own pace, you get access to all the training as soon as you join. We've seen newly qualified practitioners follow the pathway and be fully set up with their website, pricing structure, practice management systems and seeing their first clients within three months of qualifying. It really depends how much time you have to work on your business.
  • What if I don't have enough time to keep up with everything?
    Unlike a course there is no such thing as “falling behind” when it comes to a membership so we would encourage you to see it as a treasure trove of resources you can dip into when you need to, rather than something you have to "keep up with". Not enough hours in the day is a big challenge for so many nutrition business owners so we aim to help you, by having greater clarity on what your next step is, and a laser focus on just one high impact thing at a time. Attending the welcome webinar and visioning session will help you with this. By following our six-stage pathway you will have less things to focus on, and so more time to focus on those things that really matter.
  • Will I receive 1-2-1 business mentoring?
    There are fortnightly Group Coaching events in the Club, during which you are welcome to raise questions and receive personal support. The Club Facebook Group is there to support you too. If you are seeking personal 1-2-1 mentoring, our signature 12 month business mentoring programme is designed for this:
  • Is the Zest4life Health Coaching Course included within the club membership?
    Zest4life are also experts in Health Coaching Training for Nutrition Professionals. As a Zest4life Club member you will receive £100 discount on our BANT and NTOI accredited 6 week health coaching live training course, which runs twice a year, the next one starts in November.
  • I'm not based in the UK. Is the Club suitable for me?
    The Club pathway has been developed to be relevant to Nutrition Professionals in lots of different countries. We have Nutrition Business Mentors based in the UK, Ireland, Spain and South Africa who all contribute their knowledge and expertise to the training in the Club. We already have lots of Club members from different locations including UK, Ireland, Spain, Switzerland, Greece, South Africa, Canada, Australia and the Middle East who are making a success of their business. Wherever you are based you will be made very welcome by our diverse community.
  • Do you have Club membership intakes throughout the year?
    We currently open the Club membership for enrolment every 6 months. We only open enrolment for short periods so that the rest of the time we can be fully focused on our members and ensuring they have an amazing experience, rather than diluting our focus with sales and marketing activity. Having new members join only at certain times of year also helps ensure a safe space where everyone has time to get to know each other in between inductions.
  • I'm just starting out. Am I ready?
    The membership is designed to support you from a standing start. No website? No clients? Just an idea? We'll support you to get those essential foundations in place you need to get your first few paying clients - and you'll be off!
  • I've been in business for years, will I get enough out of it?
    Lots of Nutrition Professionals work their businesses as a side hustle. If you’ve been doing this for years, then the Club membership is ideal for helping you to build up to a full time income. If you’re at the stage where you have an established business and are thinking about creating online programmes, employing associates or setting up a membership to scale further then our personal business mentoring programmes maybe more suitable for helping you to build up to a six-figure income:
  • I'm already overwhelmed, will this add to this?
    What we see is that most nutrition business owners are overwhelmed because they have simply taken on too much. They are trying to juggle too many marketing strategies that are not yielding results or getting the attention of their ideal clients, following too many different business models, or being unclear on the most impactful next step for them. So, of course, it's a recipe for overwhelm and burnout. One of the things you get with this membership is a six-stage pathway designed specifically for Nutrition Professionals where you are clear on the next best step for you, and can start doing less activity that has a high impact, rather than lots of activity that either doesn't work for you or isn't right for your stage of business.
  • What if it turns out it's not for me?
    We believe you'll get amazing value from being a member of the Nutrition Business Success Club. However, if you don’t feel you are getting value you can cancel your monthly membership at any time by emailing If you take the six month option for £295 then your initial contract length is six months. When the six months ends you can choose to stay on for another six months at £295 or pay £59 per month, or leave. The decision is completely up to you.
  • I think I'd like to join, but I've got a question
