if you have a healing spell yuo would target your companion and hit your heal spell.

if you do not have a healing spell then you cant.

Unless you are a healing class there is no way for you to heal your companion in combat as far as i know

If you have Bio Chem or if they are available on your GTN, there are med packs that heal you and our companion during combat.

They are called Med Units and come in level 8, 16, 24, 32, etc. versions.

If you're one of these

Trooper with Commando advanced class
Smuggler with Scoundrel advanced class
Jedi Consular with Jedi Sage advanced class
Bounty Hunter with Mercenary advanced class
Imperial Agent with Operative advanced class
Sith Inquisitor with Sith Sorcerer advanced class

Then you can heal, so just target your companion and use your healing abilities

If you're any other class/advanced class then you don't have any in combat heals but need to buy those med packs.

Another thing to learn is to manage your agro/hate with what you are fighting. If you need to step up your own damage so mobs turn to you or change targets to make them mad at you instead of your companion. If you can not heal it actually works really well to bounce agro back and forth between you. It can be tricky to learn, but a great tactic once you do.
