The Professional Integrative Nutrition Diploma Program includes nutritional studies, life coaching, and counselling. The program provides you with the practical experience and skills for a rewarding career as a Nutrition Professional with added coaching and counselling skills.
Rhodes Wellness College is excited to introduce the first college-based diploma program in B.C. that helps students learn both professional nutritionist skills and professional counselling skills in a comprehensive and integrated way.
This integrative program allows graduates to work in a wide array of industries: from the food, wellness, and health industries to private practice in the nutrition and coaching industry. Graduates will be able to work as Nutrition Educators, Nutrition Consultants, Wellness Managers, Wellness Counsellors, and Life Coaches. They will be able to work in various customer consulting positions at Nutrition stores, in outreach centres and recovery centres, as holistic nutritionists, and will also have the option to work in private and semi-private practice, either on their own or with a group of other wellness-related counsellors.
Nutritionists Who Are Also Coaches and Counsellors Can Make a Huge Difference in the Lives of Others
Graduates that complete nutrition-only programs report difficulty when trying to help clients overcome issues that branch into non-nutrition areas. Depression, addiction, past physical trauma, and other challenges that are commonplace in today’s world make it difficult to motivate others to make nutritional changes that will benefit their health. Similarly, nutrition has a profound effect on individual’s sense of emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Counsellors that ignore this area are not utilizing every potential tool to help their clients.
Graduates from Rhodes Wellness College’s Professional Integrative Nutrition Program will have the advantage of being in a position to apply for jobs from two sectors – both the front lines of mental health, emotional health, and addition recovery as well as in all areas of nutritional wellness, thereby increasing their career prospects upon graduation.
Graduates will also be able to register with both the International Coach Federation and the Health Coach Alliance (pending) to receive potentially both their Associate Certified Coach certification designation and their Registered Health and Nutrition Counsellor designation*.
*The designation of Registered Health and Nutrition Counsellor (RHNC) is a designation granted by the Health Coach Alliance (HCA). Rhodes Wellness College students can become RHNC’s.
Our graduates have a proven track record of succeeding and becoming professional counselors. Many move on to further study or set up their own coaching or counselling businesses. Please visit the success stories page to learn more.
