Eating great food. Having more energy. Reaching and maintaining your ideal weight. Feeling happier and healthier. This is all possible.
I believe that much of what we do on a daily basis, and how we eat is habit-based - simply learned behaviour that has become ingrained over time. Habits are the little things we do everyday which become our systems for living, the sum of which determine our quality of life.
The good news is habits can be re-wired. It is widely recognised that we require three weeks to break a habit, six weeks to build a new habit, and 36 weeks to embed a lifestyle change, so that it becomes second nature.
I believe the most effective way to change a person's life is to change their habits, and then to lock-in and protect those habits. So I work with my clients in a coaching capacity drawing on NLP, CNT and ACT techniques, and integrate this with my nutritional therapy guidance.
As your coach, I provide you with a space for 'self-care', in which you are listened to intently, understood, supportively challenged and held accountable through an empowering transformation process.
Any change that happens in the body, happens in the mind first. My role is to help you create change with the most powerful tool you have: your mind.
You may not realise it yet, but we all have the ability to listen our own thoughts and decide whether they are actually working for us or not. Why is it important to choose what we think? Because our thoughts (all 60,000 per day) about the events, facts or circumstances in our life create running stories in our heads, which tend to spur our feelings, drive the actions we take, which in turn determine our ultimate outcomes in life and health.
Many people try to spark changes by changing the actions they take. For example, if the goal is to lose weight, a common action is to jump into a quick-fix faddy diet, or exercise hard for a short time, or both. Those actions may drive an outcome - but what people may not have acknowledged is the harboured thoughts and beliefs which led them to overeat or make poor choices around food to begin with.
Understanding your mind enables you to rewrite the language around thoughts and beliefs and transform them into positive, motivating stories which support enduring diet and lifestyle change.
I will help you:
By developing your confidence, commitment and motivation, you will achieve - and critically maintain - the results you desire and deserve.
Health & wellbeing coaching is a 'whole-life' process and results may extend beyond your health. When life is working well for my clients and they have a positive mindset, they can achieve any goal they take on.
