"I found the course stimulating, interesting and very thorough, with excellent teaching methods and support."
Until September 2011 I had been working for 22 years in the Traffic Management section of Highway Engineering for the local council. I enjoyed solving problems and the ‘people’ side of my work but had become increasingly aware that solving contentious parking ‘problems’ did not feel like a fulfilling use of my working life!
So, when facing redundancy, I decided to look into an alternative career in nutrition, something I had always been drawn to. I have always had a love of good food and how it works in the body and have found myself drawn to information, articles and programmes about nutrition. I am particularly interested in the problems people face when trying to lose weight and, having looked at various courses, decided the Nutrition Diploma ticked all the boxes.
I chose to study with Future Fit because I liked the look of their course, the fact it was online and, having had an initial chat with an adviser, I liked the Future Fit approach. As it turned out, the style of learning was ideal for me. I enjoyed it and was surprised by the in-depth course content. I found the course stimulating, interesting and very thorough, with excellent teaching methods and support. I passed in April 2012 and embarked (part time initially) on a new career based on what I’d learnt with Future Fit.
I have my own complementary therapy business www.wellbeans.co.uk with my partner and I am now mainly a Bowen Technique Therapist, but continue to see at least four clients weekly for one-to-one nutritional weight management advice. I enjoy my work and find it very rewarding to help people reach their goals.
