Do you have sugar cravings, need help with digestion, have chronic PMT or want to shift a few pounds (or more) but totally fed up with yoyo dieting? As a registered nutritional therapist and coach, I am here to help you re-gain your vitality and succeed with your wellbeing goals!
I help you eat for a healthy mind and body, empowering you to make changes to your diet and lifestyle to improve your weight, digestion and energy, getting rid of cravings and developing strategies for emotional eating. I have developed my Joyful Eating Programmes which are a combination of nutrition science and motivational coaching which has a track record in helping clients to successfully achieve effective and sensible weight loss and longer term maintenance. I provide a nutrition portal/app for monitoring progress and food diaries over an agreed period of time enabling clients to stay focused and achieve better results.
Over the past 18 years, I have gained specialist knowledge and experience in the following areas:
female and male nutrition requirements
weight-loss and long term maintenance (non-dieting)
controlling cravings and emotional eating
supporting natural cleansing (Nutriclean) and elimination diets
promoting energy levels and blood sugar balance
food intolerance and stool testing and a gut healing programme
I offer one to one consultations and also coach either one to one, with couples, or in small groups. Topics I cover within my weight loss programme focus on re-training the mind: emotional eating, controlling cravings, getting rid of limiting beliefs and changing long held habits. The nutrition component of the programme is a low GL Nutrition Plan to balance blood sugar, with the emphasis on healthy food and lifestyle choices rather than dieting. We also cover food labelling, healthy choices for eating out and explore new foods and recipes for exciting menu planning that the whole household can enjoy!
I advise on supplementation and relevant testing, menu planning, food labelling, cooking as well as help you with your shopping list to stock a healthy kitchen.
Please have a look at my website for further information about my nutrition programmes. I look forward to hearing from you!
