What did you do before studying at CNM?

After graduating from University College of London (UCL), I began working as a Financial Compliance Consultant. This work involves advising clients in the investment industry on regulation, leading trainings and working on a variety of projects. It’s given me the unique opportunity to see how important a work-life balance is, the way chronic stress affects our wellbeing and how vital it is that health coaching takes such pressures into account. Past clients have told me that my experience in such a high-stress job lets them feel more seen, and means I can give realistic advice.

What made you want to become a Health Coach?

Eventually, I realised that my role in finance no longer aligned with what I truly wanted to do and, after experiencing burnout, I decided it was time to pursue my passion – health and wellbeing. Becoming a Health Coach was perfect for that. I’ve had a passion for health since my teenage years, having experienced my own health struggles, and I wanted my work to reflect this inner calling. I also love working 1:1 with people, so becoming a Health Coach was the right path for me.

What attracted you to CNM’s Health Coach course?

CNM’s accreditation by the UK’s NHS PCI is what attracted me the most – I wanted to study a course that was widely respected. The program also seemed in-depth, well organised and lead by leading professionals in the field. I also liked the flexibility of online studying, as that allowed me to study alongside a full-time job.

What did you enjoy most about the course?

I loved learning about the intricacies of the human body, and how everything is deeply interconnected. I also really enjoyed the coaching module and getting to put the knowledge into practice.

How has studying the Health Coach diploma changed your life?

The Health Coach Diploma has made me certain that my passions lie in health and wellbeing. I’m very grateful that I took a chance and committed.

What are you doing now that you are qualified?

I offer 1:1 health coaching, alongside my other holistic practices like yoga teaching, Reiki and cacao ceremonies (www.dessieneva.com). I do this whilst still working part-time at my corporate job, and have found a new balance in my life. I’m excited for where everything will take me.

What do you love about being a Health Coach?

I love creating a space for people to tap into their inner wisdom. Most of us know a lot more than we realize, we just need the right space, support and encouragement. I also love applying my studies to real-life problems, and seeing those ‘Aha’ moments in people’s smiles.
