GET TO KNOW ME
I’ve always loved listening to people’s stories, been deeply curious about how our bodies function and enjoyed cooking up delicious food! From playing with my outdoor kitchen as a child and noticing how the people around me were affected by their food and lifestyle choices, I was drawn to working in the world of food and health.
I completed a degree in Information Technology and worked within the Events Industry for 10 years, until my health took a real turn for the worse.
I was diagnosed with melanoma cancer, depression, anxiety, IBS, abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, adrenal fatigue, insomnia. Along with migraines, brain fog, a lack of self-worth, low self-confidence and self-sabotaging behaviours which all made me feel even more out of control. All I wanted was help but I had no idea where to start.
I had two operations to remove my malignant melanoma and was taking a variety of prescribed pills from the doctors, which made my symptoms even worse.
After 1 ½ years of terrible side effects I fully committed to get myself better naturally through the lens of health coaching, nutrition and lifestyle. My drive to understand what was happening inside of me and how to get better was unstoppable.
My health drastically improved when I studied Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching, Principles of Nutrition and Chefing. All of my qualifications took food, nutrition and lifestyle to a whole new level, so I could not only support my own health but others too!
I had the privilege of living with one of the best raw food chefs, Mathias who runs Raw Food Bali. It was here I gained even more experience creating beautiful dishes with locally grown food, helped run workshops and experienced how communities fed and supported each other.
There’s nothing more I love to do than to share and support my clients with the power of food and health coaching, to reach their health goals, to feel amazing again!
I truly believe in the power of collaboration, so I network with health professionals to provide personalised care, so you get optimal health results for your unique needs and desires. I also collaborate with the NHS, Scoop Wholefoods, Long Ashton Community Network and Yoga Avenue to support our local commuities health.
I continue to educate myself through continued professional development and devote myself to my own health and wellbeing. Our health journey isn’t always smooth, however with knowledge, actionable steps and loving support, your heath symptoms can be managed and overcome, so you can feel like YOU again!
The shifts I’ve chosen have positively transformed my own life and have successfully helped all of my incredible clients on so many levels too. So much so, I want to share my story and support others struggling in every way I can.
This is why my Health & Nutrition Coaching business started.
How would you like to work together to feel energised and better again?
