My approach to health is holistic and takes into account emotional, mental and environmental factors as well as nutrition. I have always had a passion for health and have studied many complementary therapies such as Vortex Energy Healing, Psych-K, Flower Essences before training to become a Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach. As a Nutritional Therapist I am trained to understand how nutrients, food and lifestyle factors influence the function of the body. As a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach I am passionate about helping you to bridge that gap between knowing what you need to do to be healthy and the motivation you need to be able to make those changes and sustain them, My aim is to support you to nurture yourself to blossom and thrive.
My passion for nutrition arose a number of years after I had developed a condition called Endometriosis. Symptoms of endometriosis can vary, a common symptom and the one I experienced most was pain. After several appointments with various specialists and two surgeries later, my condition continued to progress, as did the duration and intensity of pain I experienced. With many questions still unanswered this spurred me on to carry out my own research and I soon learned the association between diet and pain and disease. With some changes to my diet and by eliminating inflammatory foods such as gluten, dairy and sugar from my diet, I felt the effects almost immediately, and realised how consuming these inflammatory foods were contributing to my symptoms.
Changing my diet and lifestyle had such a profound effect on my quality of life that I am inspired to want to share what I have learned with everyone. I chose to study Nutritional Therapy and Health Coaching so that I can help you on your journey to health by providing a Diet and Lifestyle plan and using coaching techniques to support you to implement those food and lifestyle changes that you want to make.
My approach to food is fundamentally about health, balance and enjoyment, I like to look at healthier ways to make your meals balanced, nutritious and most importantly tasty. I recommend that we base our diets around foods that have been as minimally processed as possible while adding a rainbow of fruit and vegetables into your daily diet will add a range of health benefits to your body.
I am dedicated to personal and professional development and frequently attend lectures and seminars to keep up with the latest scientific research.
