    I have a MFT license in two states as well as a Doctor of Psychology degree. After years of being an adult and child therapist, I am now interested in helping people lose weight by mentoring and coaching them. I am a Paleo user in diet and exercise and am very healthy. Given that I already have tons of education, what is the shortest route to being certified?

    Hi Michael, Thanks for your question. Given the value you have in your education thus far, my strongest suggestion would be for you to check out the Duke Program. It sounds like you would be a good fit there. They have a range of top professionals in their program, including surgeons, therapists, social workers and more. It is tremendously personalized, requires 3 different sessions of in-class participation stretched over 4 months. At the end of the 4 months, you are a Health Coach in every sense of the words. Duke has free teleconferencing sessions frequently for those who are curious about the program. The requirements for admission are more stringent than other places, but it sounds like you’ll have no trouble being accepted.

    Has anyone went through the Duke Health and Wellness program? If so, did you find it a good learning experience? What is the income potential for a Health and Wellness Coach?

    Hi David, Hopefully some others will answer here too, but I went through the Duke program in early 2014 and highly recommend it. Absolutely top-notch. As for income potential, it depends on your goals. If you want to work for a company it can vary from 30k to 70k a year. If you go out on your own as a private coach, you could make considerably more, or considerably less. 🙂 Depends on how you approach it.
