Hi, I’m Keri
I’m The Mind Body Weight Loss Coach on a mission to help 1000 women end the struggle with food, their weight and their body.
As someone who has yo-yo dieted for about 30 years its fair to say I never dreamt I’d be coaching women to give up their weight loss struggle one day.
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. As a Naturopath I’d also cut out the foods that I may have had a sensitivity to, and tried all sorts of herbs and supplements but none of it resulted in long term weight loss.
After doing professional trainings in nutrition, homeopathy, naturopathy and other health disciplines; and trying out all the things I’d learned on myself; I started to think that there was something wrong with my body. I was worried I’d broken my metabolism because of all the dieting. I even got my doctor to test my thyroid and to see if I had PCOS – everything returned normal. I was resigned to just being this size and figured I had to get used to it.
Along side this 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 alongside balancing their hormones.
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 they 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 women.
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 worked with 4 different coaches and learned from their genius. I studied books and podcasts and absorbed as much as I could about the psychology and mindset of eating. I did a certification in Life and Weight Loss Coaching. And, I designed my own whole food nutritional plan based on what works for me.
My biggest breakthrough was finally realising it wasn’t what I was doing that wasn’t working. It was what I was thinking in relation to all the stuff going on in my life. When I started to understand the thought processes and diet mentality that kept me yo-yo ing with my weight and unable to resist the chocolate cravings, I was finally able to lose 20kg and keep it off.
I now blend all I have learned from the wonderful coaches that helped me, along with my experience as a natural health practitioner and coach to support women in a 6 month programme to rewire their brains and release the struggle with their weight for good.
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 health and wellbeing for over a decade.
After qualifying as a homeopath in 2009 I started a natural health clinic in London and continued studying naturopathy, iridology and kinesiology. By 2014 I had fallen in love with mindset coaching and used tapping and NLP to work with women’s mindset in clinic blended with kinesiology. Over this time I’ve worked with hundreds of women to balance their hormones, improve their energy and improve their emotional wellbeing.
By 2017 I had became more and more interested in the mind-body aspects of the weight loss journey and since then I’ve transitioned to specialise in this area alongside my own personal weight loss transformations.
My qualifications include:
- Certified Life & Weight Loss Coach with The Life Coach School
- A Licentiate in Practical Homeoapthy along with many hours of continuous professional development and post graduate training
- A Diploma in Naturopathic Iridology and Systematic Kinesiology
- Trainings in NLP, 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, energetic and 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.
