Health coaching for women at midlife is life-changing...
Health coaching can help you to change your mindset, build hope and confidence, empowering you to take back control and move on from your health struggles. With sensitive, compassionate health coaching, you'll shift deep-seated blocks and manage self-sabotage to make the radical but sustainable lifestyle changes that create better health and well-being. You'll make the rest of your life, the best of your life.
Health coaching is for you...
You're going around and around in circles, consulting everyone but getting no-where fast and getting frustrated by your lack of knowledge and confidence...
- Struggling with an ongoing health issue...
- Struggling with a thyroid problem, pre or T2diabetes, obesity, beleaguered by hormonal dysfunction, intestinal/digestive issues, an autoimmune condition...
- Maybe you're feeling overwhelmed, fatigued, stressed...
- Are you experiencing poor sleep, fuzzy thinking, aches, pains...
- Or worrying about weight gain and your fruitless attempts to lose it..
- Are you disheartened by being told there's 'no known cure', or following 'diets' that only work for a while..
- Are you completely confused and no longer have any idea of what to eat, where to shop, what to cook..
If you want this clock to stop, you're certainly not alone:
People don’t listen to me, they don’t help me change. I can almost put my finger on it - what I want to do - but I never felt I could sit down with my doctor and figure it out.
A Patient, Better Conversations, Better Health Coaching
Did you know that a staggering 75% of those struggling with a chronic health condition, or feeling persistently 'under-par' are actually struggling with a 'food-and-lifestyle-driven' condition?! And, believe it or not, this is good news for you, because it means you can do something about it. But changing habits and lifestyle is hard - often the problem is where to start, how to start and how to keep going...
Enter Health Coaching...
As a Nutrition and Lifestyle Health Coach, I'm not a registered dietician or a doctor. I'm a CATALYST: my role is educative, motivational and supportive. The experience I provide will support and motivate you, it will educate and empower your to become the architect of your own healing and the confident manager of your health and well-being.

Over my 30 years' in the health space working with people - as a health research psychologist, a digestive health practitioner, a Nutrition & Lifestyle Health Coach and a qualified Nutritional Chef - I've learned that real food and a supportive lifestyle is the first and best solution to much better health at any age.
Health coaching - finding strength from the struggle
I've also learned that our health struggles make us strong. Living with a chronic or unresolved health issue, day-in-day-out forces us to find strength beyond that which we think we’re capable.
Making diet and lifestyle changes can be difficult, uncomfortably challenging and often provoke understandable fears of ‘deprivation’. But you are strong enough to make these changes and as your body heals and resets, so does your brain. As body and brain work together in new ways, old connections that underpin established habits and behaviours fade. New connections are established and healthier tastes and habits develop.
Step by step, once difficult to control cravings for foods that don’t serve you and ingrained, unconscious habits will give way to feelings of nourishment from the delicious foods you introduce and to a new-found sense of agency.
YOU are taking back your health!
I’m now in the driving seat, not a silenced passenger.
I'm so happy.....! Thank you from the bottom of my heart....I had my appointment with my consultant yesterday. He thinks the arthritis is in REMISSION!!!! Woohoooooooooo! I cannot describe how ecstatic I am! I'm still a bit stiff & my foot sometimes plays up - but nothing like it was. In fact, a LONG way from where it was last autumn. YOU helped me get where I am now, so I am truly thankful for that.

My special interests include thyroid problems, pre/T2diabetes, weight management, obesity, hormonal dysfunction, intestinal and digestive issues and autoimmune conditions.
But where to start? Knowing which changes to make for the best, and how to do things differently can be confusing, difficult and very uncomfortable... and that's where my support can really make a difference.
Even if we know they're not serving us, it's easy to 'keep on keeping on' doing the same things, particularly when we're struggling and anxious with our health, not firing on all cylinders.
Yes, change is hard. But big pay-offs come from step-wise changes - transformation doesn't happen overnight; what's important is that we step forward and keep on stepping...
If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.
