Hi there, it is lovely to have you here! My friends call me a health geek, a wellness freak or nutrition obsessed, but basically it is my passion, sometimes so much so that I need to be mindful that it doesn't impact my own health and wellbeing! You might call me a functional medicine health coach, lifestyle medicine coach, holistic wellness expert or nutrition coach, depending on which field you are standing in and which glasses you are wearing today.
My personal family health challenges and frustration with standard medical treatments have fuelled my life-long passion for learning about the causes of illness and disease and how to get well. Science and technology is continually breaking through barriers of what we thought we knew, constantly changing the environment we live in and the foods we eat, and transforming the thinking of what contributes to optimal health and wellbeing. Change is inevitable and conflicting information can be confusing. As a Health Coach I support my clients to understand the causes of their health conditions and the impacts of their daily choices, empowering them to explore and implement the solutions that best serve their health. We work together to create personalised action steps and activities, structured around my client’s goals, values and strengths. Developing a unique holistic road map to recovery and sustained health for the long-term.
As a child I had an inquisitive mind and a strong interest in how the mind and body works. My interest developed into a passion for reading, studying, learning and investigating many theories about health, healing and holistic wellbeing, throughout my adult life.
The keys to unlocking greater health and wellbeing are unique to each person, their situation, life-stage and the synergy of multiple elements for greatest effect. Personal keys work stronger together, than alone, producing a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate parts. As a health coach, I am able to explore all aspects of health and wellness with my clients and empower them on their journeys of learning how to nourish and nurture the health and wellbeing of themselves and their loved ones. Co-creating an environment where healing, learning and lasting change can take place naturally. An environment where the natural functions of the body and mind can work in harmony and optimally, just as nature intended.
By working with me, you will gain an understanding of wholefood functional nutrition and how to apply the concepts for maximum benefit. We can assess and identify digestive irritations, food triggers and the multiple factors that are pushing your body systems over their stress threshold and into high alert. You will also discover how to nourish your unique mind, body and heart better through practical lifestyle changes and daily habits that lift the bar for you.
Serving you in love and joy,
I have a passion for empowering people to live healthier, happier lives
