I meet with a prospective student to discuss their needs and challenges, and do a discovery of if/how I can help them reach their goals and have lasting results. If we are a great fit, then we start working together.
I have a vast array of related certifications, more detailed info can be found on my website www.strengthforhealth.net
It depends on what the client needs.
I have worked with people of all ages. I work with people who truly want to improve their lives, maybe they don't know how to, but that's my job is to teach them how, they just need to be ready to get happier.
