Despite already being qualified as a nutritionist, I felt something was missing and there was more I needed to learn to expand my knowledge and advance my career.
After training in sports and exercise sciences at university and doing a postgraduate in sports and exercise nutrition, I became a sports nutritionist. I was interested to understand a different perspective and look at the body in terms of systems, so I decided to study the naturopathic nutrition diploma at CNM.
I wanted to diversify my practice and be able to work in private healthcare in the corporate wellness sector as a nutritional therapist. The naturopathic nutrition training offered at CNM was completely different to the way I was trained at university.
Whenever I set foot in the college, I felt a sense of calm and anticipation to sit back, listen, and learn. The immediate warming nature of the team and the guest lecturers made me feel instantly at home. Being able to attend lectures and clinical practice on the weekends was a huge bonus as I was very busy working full-time Monday to Friday.
I found the final year clinical practice extremely valuable as it enabled me to learn from experienced practitioners and my peers. The real-time problem solving that took place in my final year allowed me to put science and anecdotal evidence into practice.
After studying nutrition with CNM you have the wonderful opportunity to establish a nutrition business online or in person and set up your own clinic. You also have the opportunity to work as a nutritional therapist in a business.
I now work as a nutritional therapist for Nuffield Health part-time and I run a nutrition consultancy service online where I deliver one-to-one consultations remotely and create content for business in the form of nutrition education. I also host a podcast called Big Feed Up HQ which focuses on nutrition, movement, and outdoor experiences. I would not have been able to do any of this without gaining insurance to practice through studying with CNM.
