A qualified Nutritional Therapist holds a diploma in Nutritional Therapy and is trained in basic biochemistry, physiology and pathology as well as supervised clinical practice. As such, a Nutritional Therapist is qualified to work in private practice and see clients on a one to one or group basis.
I achieved my Diploma in Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Dublin. This diploma course can be completed in four years, but I chose to do both my lectures and clinics together in third year and so completed in three. This was quite tough as I was also working full time, so let’s just say that I was a little tired by the end and was my own first client!
However, the main reason why I chose this particular course, was due to the fact that it offered its students the most supervised clinic hours. This was extremely important to me, in terms of learning how to apply the knowledge in a clinic setting. I was also very focussed on learning more about how we can support our health through a holistic lens, and so the naturopathic principles appealed to me enormously.
