New beginnings at College of Naturopathic Medicine

Wednesday, 9th January, 2019 5:03pm

Thinking of a career change in 2019? Or would you like to develop your skillset? A career in nutrition could be the perfect choice for you!
Aisling Kelly, a graduate of College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM), speaks of her own experience of training to become a nutritionist at the college:

“I have always had an interest in food and how it can affect our bodies. From a young age, I would notice how certain foods would affect my skin and my mood, help me to perform better when exercising, or irritate my digestive system.

After working as a montessori teacher for many years I finally decided to take the plunge into the world of nutrition. CNM’s course was ideal for me as I was able to continue working while attending college locally at the weekends.

I was impressed with the level of academic learning gained from the biomedicine year, which gave us the scientific background to understanding metabolic processes within the body, before delving into how food can support or hinder these processes. The clinical hours included in the diploma course really benefited my confidence to practice as a nutritional therapist as soon as we finished the course, as we gained practical experience as well as theoretical knowledge over the three years.

The high standard of training from CNM, along with support from fantastic lecturers and staff, gave me the confidence to start my own business as soon as I had completed the course!

I am now seeing clients in my own practice in Cork and the best thing is I can choose my own hours to work around my family life. I am looking forward to developing numerous other opportunities such as nutrition workshops, writing health articles and possibly a cookbook!”

CNM has a 20 year track record in training successful practitioners. Attend the next free CNM open evening in Cork on 28 January at Rochestown Park Hotel. Call 01-8788060 or book online naturopathy.ie.
