Become a Health Coach

Health Coaching is a rapidly growing global profession. Here in the UK we have had a large number of enquiries on how and where to study, so in response to this the UKHCA has compiled a list of global health coaching schools as a resource to help you in researching and finding the right school and qualification for you. As such, it is entirely the responsibility of the prospective student to undertake due diligence of any Health Coaching school themselves, to check their qualifications and suitability for their own personal needs.

The UKHCA are currently accepting members with the equivalent of a Level 4 Diploma in Health Coaching. Please note that we have not vetted each school to confirm that their course will equate to a level 4 Diploma in coaching.

The UKHCA will not be held responsible for the education, scope of practice, endorsements, claims or coaching expertise of any of these schools

This list is not compiled with any bias, nor does the omission of any school imply such. We welcome you drawing to our attention any omissions so we can update the list accordingly.
