I help you change your habits and manage emotional eating.
Where most nutritionists focus on recipes and calories; I focus on what might be going on inside – I assist you to retrain your subconscious, so you no longer get cravings around food, instead your new habit is to eat naturally for nutrition.
Working together, we unveil what goes on in your mind as you seek food and replace patterns that do not serve you with new approaches.
A little about me...
I struggled with my weight for more than half my life.
I was so frustrated, I ended up studying for an advanced diploma in Nutrition.
But there was something missing – knowing what to do and understanding the science did not make it any easier to do the right thing.
Then my life changed. I suffered two blows in very quick succession which meant a family of four became a family of 2 in the space of a few months.
I started to question everything, and my priorities changed.
I started to take an interest in neuroscience. I learned how the subconscious has more power over our rational brains than most of us ever realise, how our habits and behaviours can be re-moulded through conscious attention, and how much power we actually have to change our personalities.
Interestingly enough, applying my learning to how I thought and behaved around food yielded interesting results – I no longer needed to stop myself from eating. I recognised when I needed soothing and could decide whether I really wanted to use food or something else.
So back to school yet again for a Diploma in Transformational Coaching, I wanted the tools to help people work on themselves.
Thing is, we all have the ability within us to make ourselves anything we want to be; we just need the space and time to explore and perhaps a little prodding in the right direction…
I now work with my clients to create new habits around food.
We work together on all the aspects a “normal” nutritionist would – we identify which foods are good for your specific circumstances, I act as your accountability partner, I monitor your progress, organise blood tests, etc.
I also do more…
I walk beside you as you take steps to unravel the situations that might cause you to seek food. I support you while you explore your subconscious mind and habits – working out what is serving you and how to discard that which isn’t. I give you the time and space you need to challenge yourself and reveal the wonderful person that has been waiting to emerge.
I look forward to working together.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
Free initial online session
The absolute best way to experience the benefits and impact (and decide you’re ready for a new you), is to “try it”.
So I am inviting you to a full-experience coaching session, for free and with no obligation or expectation to continue.
I’ll help you identify your specific [blocks, barriers or challenges] and we’ll develop a plan – which you can take forward on your own or put into practice with my help. You are in control.
When you make contact, I will give you access to a special App that makes everything clear and simple. I encourage you to use this as much as possible ahead of our coaching session. During our session, I will use information from your questionnaire and the results from your usage of the App to provide you with tailored insights into things you can change to see immediate results. We will also start work on exploring options for managing the situations that might cause you to seek food.
If it’s good for both of us, we will work together for 12 weeks to set you on a path to a life where you have control around food and healthy choices without having to expend any conscious thought on this – your control will be part of your nature.
Meetings are normally online (Zoom / FaceTime / Telephone). In person meetings are also available however these cannot be booked at night.
All consultations can be provided online and there is no additional cost for evening appointments
