Helen Harding: Coach-Mentor
Helping You Find Clients for Your Holistic Health Business
Do you feel like you’re floundering in your holistic health business? Are you struggling to find clients and everything you try just isn’t working? Do you feel like you’ll never make a full time living as a complementary therapist, or alternative medicine practitioner?
What you really need is clarity, guidance and a personalised plan of action. One that focuses on your individual strengths and available resources, rather than just a ‘cookie-cutter’ approach.
We’ll work together to simplify and structure what you need to do. As we reverse engineer your big projects, you’ll understand the simple steps you need to take, to achieve them. You’ll have the confidence and courage to take the action you need to create the practice of your dreams.
I’m a Chartered Marketer and a complementary therapist (clinical hypnotherapist, Master NLP practitioner, life coach and Advanced Lightning Process® Practitioner).
I spent 20+ years working in marketing and business, responsible for staff teams and big budgets. I found coaching came naturally and followed my interest in personal development.
Within four years I was earning a living as a complementary therapist, working three days a week but earning the equivalent of a full-time salary.
My passion for marketing and business never left me. I recognised these were the areas my fellow practitioners struggled with most.
I started to support colleagues, helping them to build their own holistic health businesses. I’ve now spent the last 15 years blending the skills of marketing, business and personal development – specifically to support other complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) professionals.
- Teaching business planning and skills to CAM students at Middlesex University (Western Herbal Medicine, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Ayurveda and Acupuncture students)
- Working as a tutor and supervisor to complementary therapy students
- Setting up business structures for private CAM practices and colleges
- Speaking at CAM industry conferences
- Writing a book ‘Your Holistic Business Recipe’ (published Sept. 20)
I’ll coach and mentor you to set up and run your business, in a way that feels right to you. We’ll also deal with any mindset challenges along the way, building your confidence to thrive as a CAM practitioner.
I know first-hand how running your own business is the biggest personal development challenge ever. Building my business, I faced my own demons of perfection and low self-esteem. These had kept me feeling very stuck and not good enough for years. I located my confidence, got over my risk aversion and embraced my entrepreneurial spirit.
Currently, I work part-time as a Lightning Process practitioner. I spend the rest of my week helping CAM professionals build their dream holistic health business.
Helen Harding – at Home
I’m married to Gary – my best friend, cheerleader and the person responsible for nick-naming me “Captain Sensible”. In 2015 we decided it was time for a new adventure and relocated to a beautiful part of Wales. We sold our completely renovated house in Hertfordshire and moved 200 miles to a house with incredible potential, but lots (and lots) of work to do.
I’m an avid bookworm and podcast subscriber for anything on personal development or marketing.
I am slowly developing green fingers but it will take me some time to return the garden to its former glory. I love getting out into nature, exploring the local area and discovering new places with the dogs. For me, playtime is getting creative with anything from arts and crafts to trying my hand at upcycling furniture.
