Denise Chester ~ CNHC
Fully qualified in both Nutritional Therapy since 2006 and Personal Training since 2012, I specialise in Women's Heath, with a particular interest in Hormonal Health and Pelvic Floor & Core Health.
I work mainly with women in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond, using the right kind of food and exercise to help balance their hormones naturally so they can be in good physical and mental health, feel and look fantastic.
What you eat and absorb directly affects your health and wellbeing, so it makes sense to look at your diet whether you are recovering from illness, dealing with a health condition, looking to stay well into old age, or want to feel and look better now.
Women have particular needs as they move through various hormonal stages in life, and I can help you make the changes you need to support your body at these times.
My version of Nutritional Therapy is about using the latest nutrition science along with coaching skills to enable people to make lasting transformation. It’s helping people make permanent change to what and how they eat, how they think and feel about food and their bodies, and how they live their lives.
My practice recognises that we are all biologically different, and our genes respond to food in individual ways. I work with my clients to address not just food, but lifestyle and attitude so that they are better equipped to take what they learn and make it work for them.
I offer Nutrition Consultations, a six-week bespoke Hormone Health Course, and I run various workshops and retreats.
I also run one-to-one Holistic Core Restore® Courses in effective pelvic floor exercise and nutrition; this six-week course is ideal for new mums, mums with older children, women who's pelvic health is affected by hormonal change, and any other woman dealing with stress urinary incontinence and/or mild pelvic organ prolapse.

I am a working mum who has had her own share of hormonal and pelvic health issues, so I really do understand my clients problems. It's why I specialise in these areas.
I am a strong supporter of women of all ages and backgrounds: I believe that women have the potential to be healthy and happy wherever they are and whatever they do, and I love to provide the information, education and support to empower women to take charge of their own health.
Nutrition, exercise and a healthy lifestyle takes effort - anyone who says it's easy isn't being honest. That's why my clients and I work together to break things down and change things in small, manageable steps - we celebrate each success and work on the areas that are more challenging until we get it right.
Every woman is different and needs her own personal strategy. That's why my private courses and programmes are completely bespoke and designed with each individual client in mind. It's all about you!
