I have been on my own nutritional journey over the last ten years. When a stressful job combined with personal and family issues started to take their toll on my health I became interested in nutrition and soon realised the impact that diet could make to my well-being.
My symptoms were synomous with irritable bowel syndrome and adrenal exhaustion. I had to radically change my eating habits which included embracing more protein in my diet expanding my mainly vegetarian and carb heavy repertoire to incorporate fish and lean meats, radically reducing identified sugar sources and other inflammatory triggers, and quitting my grazing habit.
Today, at 37, I am more energised and stronger in my mind and body than I have ever been. And I enjoy helping people learn nourishing eating habits to help them feel body confident, energised, glowing and manage a healthy weight.
In order to help me stay at the forefront of my profession, I invest time reading the latest research papers and maintaining CPD. Recent study includes a course in Psychological Approaches to Obesity in 2015. As an associate of Patrick Holford's Zest4Life, I am continually developing my skills as a motivational health coach, drawing on NLP, CBT, ACT techniques and mindfulness.
