Let's work around you
My passion is to empower women like yourself to transform their health anad bring calmness to your everyday life. As a naturopathic nutritional therapist, I believe it is essential to support both mind and body in order to feel great and enjoy a happy, healthy life. I use a holistic approach that includes nutritional therapy, stress resiliency techniques and health coaching. Good health comes from a combination of many things - there is no magic pill! It gives me such joy to see my clients begin to thrive in their lives as we work together.
Let me help you reconnect and discover your joy of food and the pleasure it can bring without any guilt whatsoever. I think about food 24 hours a day (yes, I even dream about it and my nickname is "Mrs Enthusiastic" about food)! Imagine feeling happy, upbeat, positive with healthy glowing skin every day? What if you could eat the most delicious food every day and never again feel guilty about food? What if I told you that you could still eat chocolate, drink wine and enjoy a dessert after your dinner? (Yes, it's absolutely possible)! This is all part of a balanced, moderate approach to food and health - it can be your reality and, trust me, you will absolutely love the new you that comes from making small changes bit by bit. This is when your natural self-confidence shines and you feel true to yourself. I began studying nutrition when my 2 children were babies because I knew there had to be more to food than just great tasting flavours and I wanted to understand how food can help heal our bodies.
Feel more energetic, sleep better, feel less stressed, lose weight and get your mojo back for life while still enjoying delicious food everyday.
Are you fed up of feeling exhausted, overweight, run down or struggling with health issues for years but not knowing where to turn to for help. I know how you feel because I've been there myself and worn the t-shirt many times around. You too can take back control of your body and health, feel more energetic every day, less stressed and enjoy a great night's sleep even when lack of time, motivation or old habits seem to get in the way (yes, even I lack motivation myself sometimes and need a good old kick up the bum)! The saying "put your own oxygen mask on first" is so true. You can't help those around you if you don't help yourself first!
More about me
As a Chef for many years, I am hugely passionate about food and I have seen the effect that wholesome food has on health in my own family. I'm a Mum to 2 teens myself so I understand about trying to put into place practical changes to your eating habits that suit the whole family with no need to cook separate meals. My approach to health is uncomplicated and designed to suit the whole family - young and old taking family favourite dishes and give them a tweak!
I live by the 80/20 rule myself (this approach to eating is all about balance and indulging without guilt which leads to a healthy relationship with food) and enjoy delicious food daily. And yes, I love my red wine, dark chocolate and desserts also (I'm a trained pastry chef also)! I have also had my own health issues over my lifetime and I know how frustrating it can be trying to find answers.
I have a keen personal interest in the effect of unresolved trauma on our longterm health and have begun my training as a transformational breathwork facilitator to use our breath as a tool for healing and promoting good health.
