What is a Natural Health Consultant?
Natural health consultants are professionals who, rather than having modern medical training, have extensive knowledge about natural remedies, such as vitamins, herbs, minerals, and even how nutrition can impact health.
Health and wellness consultants are trained to assess and discuss health issues or symptoms with clients and recommend holistic treatments. They must have the ability to empathize with their clients and listen carefully to their health care concerns. Being an effective natural health consultant requires strong interpersonal and communication skills to effectively help your clients.
What’s the Pay?
The average annual income for a counsellor is reported to be AU$65,650, however depending on where you are employed and what industry this can differ.
To give a better indication, the base hourly rate on average is AU$41.18
We have three course options with the outcome to become a Natural Health Consultant. Our most popular course, the Advanced Certificate in Naturopathy is a extremely versatile and achievable course for all.
The Advanced Certificate in Naturopathy has 6 modules, which amounts to approximately 600 hours of self-paced study over a 2 year period. To complete this course over 2 years, students would only need to dedicate 6 hours per week! You can also complete this course sooner if you wish.
The course modules include:
- Foundations of Human Nutrition
- Health & Wellbeing
- Medicinal Herbs
- & Three Electives of your Choice!
Upon completion of this course you will be able to gain insurance with the IICT (International Institute of Complementary Therapists), who also recognise the course, to work as a Natural Health Consultant or Naturopathic Counsellor.
This course will equipt you with the skills to establish your own Consulting business and take autonomy over your career!
Nervous this course is too much, or that you haven’t studied in a while? You can enrol in Foundations of Human Nutrition, which is the first module of this course, allowing you to have 1 year to complete 100 hours of study, and then upgrade, paying the difference only!
