Are you drawn toward immersing yourself more deeply in the work we do here at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, but a little unsure about whether the Eating Psychology Coach Certification Training is the right career move for you? Maybe you haven’t thought of yourself as a professional coach before, or maybe the idea of starting your own business gives you a few butterflies in your stomach. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone! Contemplating a career change can bring out some anxiety for many people. But if you notice a feeling of excitement growing in you despite the uncertainty, maybe it’s time to take a deeper look into the many possible ways that certification as an Eating Psychology Coach could enhance your work life.

Work with Clients One On One

Working with clients individually is the first career path most people think of when they’re considering taking the Eating Psychology Coach Certification Training. As a graduate of this Training, you’ll be equipped with a toolbox that’s chock full of timeless coaching techniques and cutting-edge information from the fields of Mind Body Nutrition and Dynamic Eating Psychology that will put you in a great position to help people make powerful, lasting shifts in their relationship with food, body, and health. You’ll be able to use introspective exercises, practical experiments, solid nutritional science, and much more to help people find breakthroughs with a wide range of eating-related challenges, including weight, body image, overeating, binge eating, emotional eating, endless dieting, digestion, fatigue, immunity, mood and much more.

And as a coach, you’re not limited to working with only those people who live in your area. While plenty of our graduates have built thriving practices by seeing clients in a physical office or in the client’s home, others have tapped into the rapidly expanding market for coaches who can connect with their clients across great distances. Tools such as Skype, Internet-based video chat, and even cell phones are allowing potential clients to search for a coach who can address their unique needs, regardless of where they live. In addition, you can specialize in working with specific population groups and use the Internet to reach out to those people, wherever they may be.

Develop Your Own Group Programs

You can also use the knowledge you learn in this Training to create group programs that meet the needs of your own community. You might design a series of classes to help people understand and apply the principles of Mind Body Nutrition in their own lives. You could build programs that are specifically tailored for parents, students, health professionals, or any group that you can think of. After all, every profession, culture, or stage of life can have its own set of challenges around finding the best possible means of nourishment. And just as you can work with clients who live far away by using technology, you can also develop your own online programs and courses that people can take from anywhere in the world.

Be Part of a Team

Going it alone isn’t the only way to build a successful career as a Certified Eating Psychology Coach. If you prefer a more collaborative work environment, you might want to offer your services in a wellness center, chiropractic office, spa, retreat venue, fitness club, community health clinic, natural foods store, or another place where caring professionals come together to help people transform their lives. You can also share office space with another coach to help you maximize your resources.

And if your passion lies in working with people with more complex medical conditions, such as cancer patients or people struggling with eating disorders, working as part of a care team is a wonderful way to combine your knowledge Dynamic Eating Psychology with the advanced clinical training that a doctor, psychologist, or other specialist can bring. No matter what your vision, when you bring other people’s skills and energy into the picture, the possibilities are endless!

Bring Wellness to the Workplace

These days, more and more companies understand that well-designed, effective wellness programs more than pay for themselves by keeping employee morale up and insurance costs down. There are huge opportunities for Eating Psychology Coaches to work together with businesses to plan and implement programs focusing on Mind Body Nutrition right in the corporate environment. If you’ve got a heart full of compassion for people who are living the modern office lifestyle and dealing with the challenges of stress, exhaustion, and limited food choices, your clients will love you for bringing them new ideas that will reinvigorate their lives.

Build On What You Know

If you’re already doing something you love, you don’t have to start over from scratch to put your new skill set into action. Our graduates have combined their coaching certification with a diverse array of existing practices. They’ve blended Eating Psychology Coaching with massage and bodywork, yoga, personal training, meditation, art therapy, nutritional counseling, and hospice care. Some have used this Training to complement their work as a chef, a physician, a spiritual counselor, a nurse practitioner, a health coach, a psychologist, or an elementary school teacher. Whatever field you’re in, if you’re passionate about it, we’ll help you find the perfect way to use this Training to enhance your current career and open new doors.
