and Eating Coaching
Are you fed up of suffering with irritating, inconvenient health issues?
At your wits end and tired of being told there’s nothing wrong with you?
Confused with contradictory health information?
Feeling stuck and just can’t seem to get results?
What is holistic coaching?
Modern methods of treating health imbalances tend to focus on alleviating, or rectifying, the current symptoms.
This is an effective approach in many situations e.g broken bones, or infections.
But often a symptom of dis-ease may have it's roots in an area that may not be immediately obvious.
Although we are not always consciously aware of the connection, every aspect of our lives impacts the others.
This is particularly evident with food and mood related issues,
e.g, your thoughts effect your stress levels > your stress levels impair your ability to digest food > which can in turn effect your weight.
Holistic coaching explores the physical, psychological, energetic, environmental and social dimensions to find possible contributing factors to your state of un-ease.
Treating the whole person, and their individual circumstances, can facilitate life-changing, long-lasting results.
Diet. Digestion. Weight.
Unwanted eating behaviours.
Energy. Mood. Fatigue.
You can benefit from holistic coaching if:
- you feel 'stuck' with your health, diet or weight, you have tried many approaches and nothing seems to be working.
- your desire to change your body size or shape is impacting your life or you wish to liberate yourself from perpetual dieting or
other eating behaviours.
- you have received a diagnosis but feel that there is something missing in the treatment protocol from your physician, we can work together to explore the underlying factors that may have contributed to your condition.
- you've looked at the 'sugar-free, green-juicing, pantry-detoxing, endless water drinking and rigid meal-planning programs' that many health coaches recommend .. and felt totally intimidated!

I have added links to suggested reading below for the curious amongst you.
.. and this is how I will do it:
Im here to be your health advocate, guide, advisor and a listening ear.
My role is to suggest adjustments, bring new ideas and a fresh perspective, to support you on your journey at your own pace.
I honour your individuality and draw on my extensive training and broad knowledge base, to create a completely personalised coaching program.
You will find my approach unique and refreshing as we work together towards a sustainable, enjoyable, diet and lifestyle that supports your best health and highest potential.

"Hold on, Im confused! I thought you were a cook,
how can you possibly have done all this other stuff?"
Well it turns out you can get quite a lot done if you throw away the t.v!
I have always been fascinated by complimentary and natural methods of healing, along with human behaviour and consciousness exploration.
Cooking is my creative passion, but is just one means of fulfilling my true calling in this life; to enhance the lives of others and help relieve the pains of a broken society.
After a period of depression in 2007, I embarked on my own journey of holistic healing in order to:
- alleviate life-long digestive discomfort
- improve self-esteem
- transform unhealthy coping mechanisms
- greatly expand my perspective
- gain clarity of my vision, purpose and place here on Earth.
I have since committed to undertake at least one course of personal or professional development per year, along with voracious reading and continued daily awareness and practice.
It was then a natural progression for me to move into coaching where I can combine these life-changing tools and techniques with my knowledge of healthful diets and flavoursome food!
Free yourself from fads, calorie counting,
guilty eating and deprivation diets.
Experience relief and comfort.
Break through to your better, bolder and brighter self!

The cost of hidden stress
"It is impossible for any stressful stimulus, chronic or acute, to act on only one part of the super-system (the brains emotional centre, the hormonal apparatus, nervous and immune systems). What happens to one will effect all."

"The new biology revealed that the brain of a cell is it's skin... Through the action of the cell membrane we can actually control our genes, our biology, and our life, and we have been doing it all along although we have been labouring under the belief that we are victims"
