Over the last ten years I have adopted a much healthier attitude towards food. I realised I needed to fuel my body in the most nutritious and beneficial way I could. Since then I have noticed the effects food has on my body both positively and sadly, negatively. After all, our body is like a machine so we need to carefully look after it.
After several years as a primary school teacher, I bit the bullet and thought I needed to teach a new curriculum. For the last few years, many people have sought nutritional advice from me which I have taken as a huge compliment. I realised instead of educating children in a school environment, I could use these skills to educate others about nutrition. I could also use my own experiences of correct fueling to support exercise and training.
My training has involved many aspects of nutrition but I have specifically concentrated on: childhood nutrition and obesity prevention; nutrition and weight management; nutrition for sport and exercise and pre and post-natal nutrition. I have also qualified in motivational coaching and behavioural change which I feel are key tools for working with clients. I believe learning and keeping up to date with current scientific research is vital so I regularly attend conferences and courses at part of my CPD. Recently I embarked on the challenge of starting a post graduate diploma in Applied Sports and Exercise Nutrition to broaden my knowledge and experience to support clients.
I have been fortunate enough to support a range of clients of all ages with various nutrition goals. These have included building positive relationships with nutrition, fat-loss, improve body composition, improve sports performance, IBS, inflammation, autoimmune diseases such as lupus, ulcerated colitis and adrenal fatigue.
The support I offer is completely bespoke to my clients and their needs. It is my passion to work with my clients on their nutrition journey by giving face-to-face and online support. I am with my client every step of the way as I want my clients to be the healthiest and happiest version of themselves.
