As someone who has yoyo dieted for about 30 years its fair to say I never dreamt of being a weight loss coach.
In 2017 I found myself at the heaviest I’d ever been: 92kg (203 lbs) and size 18. When I had to buy a size 20 top for a Christmas party I realised something really needed to change.
Up until this point I’d given up on dieting having tried paleo, vegetarian, 5:2, Atkins, Slimming World and other random weight loss regimes. I started to think that there must have been something wrong with me: these diets didn’t work, and any small amount of weight I lost crept back on (plus more!). I wondered if I’d broken my metabolism.
Along side this yo-yo dieting I was seeing clients in my natural health clinic. My specialism was women’s hormonal health and I had a number of people coming to me for help with weight. I would cringe inside every time a new client would tell me that’s what they wanted help with. After all, I thought, “if I’m still struggling how can I help anyone else? What do my clients think of me at this weight?”. It was a source of shame for me for a very long time and affected my ability to work with confidence with those clients.
When a weight loss coach randomly came into my life at the end of 2017 (thanks Jude!) I was inspired to try something different. I started the journey to permanent weight loss and over the next 2 years I designed my own whole food nutritional plan based on what works for me. I also learned strategies and tools to re-programme subconscious behaviour that triggers over eating and food cravings.
If this resonates with you, then you’re in the right place. I’d love to share the strategies and tools with you so you can find the same success. Get started: listen to the podcast or sign up for the free 5 Steps to Stop Overeating training.
I can get into some of my older clothes and I feel more confident about the way I look. The group work was great, it made what felt like a difficult task initially much more motivating. I also enjoyed finding my willpower!
I’ve been working in holistic hormonal health for over a decade.
In that time I’ve worked with hundreds of women to balance their hormones, improve their energy and improve their emotional wellbeing. My qualifications include:
- Professional certification in Life and Weight Loss Coaching (expected 2020)
- A Licentiate in Practical Homeoapthy along with many hours of continuous professional development and post graduate training
- A Diploma in Naturopathic Iridology
- Professional certification in Systematic Kinesiology
- Trainings in Emotional Freedom Technique, Meridian Tapping Therapy and Reiki
All of my training has given me a solid understanding of how the body works from a holistic viewpoint: mental, emotional, physical and energy which included nutrition.
I now bring all of these tools, knowledge and experience to help women ditch their diet and experience true long term weight loss.
A little bit more about me…
Having lived all over the world, I’m now settled in London with my fiance (“Frenchy” – who cooks the most wonderful food and our two cats Bonnie and Stella). If you join me on a video call sometime you’ll probably meet my cats!
I adore power yoga, my kettle bells, Green + Blacks chocolate and a good strong coffee.
I’m a tech geek and have worked in digital user experience research which balances my logical and intuitive brain. Although I’m fascinated by new technology, I also love manifesting, moon magic and vision boards.
