Let's Be Honest

Figuring out how to to feel good in your body AND about your body is tricky business. 


Am I right?


We know that what we eat and how well we look after ourselves can have a direct impact on how good we feel within body AND how good we feel when we look in the mirror.


Maybe you are living with digestive disasters, hormone havoc, mood or energy problems or pesky skin issues and want to find a more holistic way to support your body though diet and lifestyle. You want to treat the root cause instead of suppressing it. 


Or perhaps you have been stuck on the dieting treadmill for too long. Regardless of your weight you feel controlled by your thoughts about your body and what you eat. When it comes to your relationship with food, let's just say your status update would be - it's complicated. 


So here's the plan...

It's time to create a customised strategy for a healthier happier you.


It's time to ditch the cookie-cutter one size fits all approach and begin to understand how to transform your health whether it's your weight, mood, energy, skin, hormones digestion OR your tortured relationship with food.


That's why I've created a whole new approach to help you shift your mindset around your body and your relationship with food. 

Your health and happiness doesn't begin and end with dropping a few pounds of simply feeling content when you look in the mirror.


It's the energy to give every day your all, the confidence of knowing you can take care of yourself and being able to eat for pleasure and enjoyment without the guilt.


It's about understanding what foods make you feel good so you have the energy to go for what you want out of life. 


Let's begin the journey to a whole new you.

I grew up battling il health & food issues...

I often joke that as a teenager I collected diagnostic labels the way more teenage girls collected shoes:


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Endometriosis, Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, Depression, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Cystic Acne, not to mention Bulimia. 


To top it off, I spent years struggling with my weight and relationship with food. Throwing up in bathrooms, starving myself and feeling confused about my body. By the age of 16, I realised that if I didn't start figuring out for myself, I was never going to get better.   


So I put on my big girl shoes and decided to revamp my collection with something new - qualifications. I went on to train as a Doctor of Psychology and Nutritional Therapist.
