Caroline Hind PgDip mBANT rCNHC
I’m a Certified Primal Health Coach trained in keto/intermittent-fasting/low-carb and a Registered Nutritional Therapist. I specialise in helping people with weight, energy and memory issues on a 1:1 or group basis. With a background in parent support, I also help families with child nutrition during the tricky weaning and toddler years.
I work in York and Grimsby and also via telephone or Skype for other regions of the U.K. Please note that currently all of my consultations and coaching sessions are conducted by telephone or by video-conference (Skype or Zoom).
In my voluntary work as an ambassador for national charity, the Public Health Collaboration, I promote and run the low-GI for T2DM programme (as designed by Dr David Unwin) in GP practices.
I combine 1:1 nutritional therapy with health-coach support so that my clients are never left to manage on their own after we agree their individualised health action plan.
Many of my clients come to me after their doctor has warned them that they must make diet and lifestyle changes to avoid health complications. This is a good time to take charge of your health and I am experienced in working with people in this situation to determine and support realistic changes that can get them back on track.
Some clients need very few consultations with me and can fly solo after we have identified some key modifications. Others prefer to go onto my membership programme for ongoing coaching support once their initial course of consultations is complete. Alternatively, those looking for the mutual support and accountability of a group prefer to attend the 8-week group programme I run three times a year. This programme is based on the Primal Health Coach transformation programme and covers topics as diverse as low-carb and keto nutrition, intermittent fasting, sleep, everyday movement and Maffetone training.
During my postgraduate nutrition science studies and after a couple of years of health coaching, I realised that I am fascinated by the science of ageing and, in particular, how diet and lifestyle might impact brain health as we age. This brought me to further research into the functional medicine approach to cognitive health. I have found that my client work in this area is best undertaken on a 1:1 basis. However, after some further training this year, I hope to run a series of workshops on nutrition and brain health for small groups.
With three children of my own and a history of running parent and breastfeeding support groups, I have a good understanding of the day-to-day challenges of feeding young children. I help parents through the weaning process, reflux and the tricky toddler years, with a focus when appropriate on dietary support for breastfeeding mums. I provide a personal touch during these stressful times, helping parents to coordinate where necessary their child’s different healthcare providers and create individualised dietary and lifestyle strategies.
I run employee well-being health-coaching programmes and nutrition/lifestyle workshops for organisations.
Call or message me for an informal chat about how I might be able to help you.
