About my weight loss journey…
from size 18 to 14 to 12 (and counting!)
2017: size 18 and always trying to find a pose that covered my gut!
2018: size 14 and having fun on a beachy holiday.
On holiday visiting family in New Zealand in 2019: down to a size 12.
As someone who has yoyo dieted most of her life it’s 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 got 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 in clinic.
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: listed to the podcast or sign up for the Free 7 Day Stop Overeating Challenge.
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!
What other clients have said
Thank you! I feel so much better in myself and more motivated to keep up the principles that will keep me from putting the weight back on.
Thank you for introducing me to this! I really feel like I will be able to maintain this weight loss.
My professional background
Since 2009 I’ve run a natural health clinic after training professionally in homeopathy, naturopathic iridology and kinesiology.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients. Much of my career has focussed on women’s health and wellbeing, with a special interest in hormonal health. Weight loss has always been one of the biggest struggles I’ve seen with clients at all stages of journey into womanhood.
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 bit more about me
Having lived all over the world, I’m an avid adventure-seeker and
I adore music (weird music, according to my friends) cycling around London, yoga, amazing coffee and hanging out with my fiancee and my cats Bonnie + Stella (as well as spending far too much time consuming funny cat videos on online).
I am a tech geek and have a background of working in digital user experience research which balances my logical and intuitive brain. Although I’m fascinated by new technology, I also use manifesting, moon magic and vision boards.
