About Me

“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”

Mahatma Gandhi

My Story

My journey towards becoming a health coach began about ten years ago when I took up running. Before that I was not sporty at all. I was a bit of a couch-potato actually! Like many people, I had struggled with my weight all my life and was a fully paid up member of the yo-yo diet club. I had every size of clothes in my wardrobe because my weight went up and down so often.

All through my twenties and thirties I hated my body and felt as though I was fighting a constant battle with it. I knew there had to be a better way – I just didn’t know what it was. It wasn’t until I was in my mid forties that I began to find out.

I was invited to go jogging with a new friend and I shocked myself by actually enjoying it. I started to run regularly and began to benefit from the fresh air and exercise.  As you would expect, I lost weight, but I also quickly realised that I still couldn’t just eat anything and everything, and in fact, I realised that the better I ate, the better I ran. That’s when I became interested in nutrition. I read everything I could get my hands on and finally became so engrossed in the subject that I decided to change my career and help other people with their health and fitness. I trained as a Level 3 Personal Trainer and Nutrition Advisor and subsequently qualified as a Health Coach.

My Values & Beliefs

Be Kind

I believe that kindness is crucial to wellbeing. Being kind to others is not just a gift to them, but also a gift to ourselves. so, be kind to others and be kind to yourself. Learn not to judge yourself too harshly for your mistakes. Remember, none of us have been here before, we’re all learning as we go along.

Be Curious

Treat every day like an adventure. Have an open mind to new ideas. Try things you’ve never tried before. Eat a new type of food, start a new hobby or exercise, try a different meditation or a book that challenges you. Always be ready to expand your horizons.

Be Positive

It’s my blood group and my motto! There have been countless studies on the effects of a positive mental attitude on health and wellbeing, and yes, I know it’s sometimes easier said than done, but it’s a good thing to work towards.

Be Yourself

Be true to yourself and aim to live an authentic life. Sometimes we can travel so far off course that it’s difficult to remember who we set out to be in the first place. Learn to listen to your intuition and do the things in life that bring you fulfillment not the things that simply please other people.

Small steps to success

I believe that the best way to achieving a healthier life is to make small changes that stick. By taking things one step at a time, you will find that you achieve your goals.

I do not believe in diets. Diets are short term. Yes, you will lose weight, but then, almost inevitably, you will put it back on again.

Once you understand which foods give you energy and which foods make you feel low, you will begin to want to choose those types of foods.

My aim is to help you to identify what works best for you. Which food and which type of exercise suits you best. Let’s work together to help you become the best that you can be.
