Hello! I’m a health coach registered with the UK Health Coaches Association. I help clients lose weight without hunger, and transform their health using real food and realistic lifestyle changes so they feel better than they’ve felt in ages.
I loved my 16 years as a coach and leadership development consultant specialising in behavioural diagnostics and personal development. But a longstanding interest in the relationship between health and performance led me back to university for a Masters in Obesity & Weight Management and a Postgraduate Certificate in Human Nutrition.
These days there’s so much noise and confusion about what we should or shouldn’t be doing/eating/drinking. Having delved into the research (I’m still delving!), I believe that if we all focused on what is agreed on rather than what’s disputed, we’d all be healthier and happier. What does everyone agree on? Avoid sugar and ultra-processed food, eat more veg and whole foods (real food!), prioritise sleep, manage stress, move more, get outside and see friends.
These are the principles I use in my work, both with individuals and groups. I call it the low carb/real food lifestyle approach and it works because it’s working with your physiology, not fighting it.
