The journey to resilient health, vitality and longevity
Emerging from a stressful & traumatic period in my own life, I was forced to take time out to recover from a decade of stress, trauma coupled with with overwhelm and anxiety, to restore my emotional and physical health that had suffered as a result. Once fully recovered, having used the functional health perspective, I trained with the New York based Institute of Integrative Nutrition, adding holistic health coaching to my performance coach and Neuro linguistic programming (NLP) practitioner qualifications, having previously trained with one of the UK's leading coach training company’s, The Coaching Academy. My passion for coaching combined with health and wellbeing led me to be studying currently with the School for Applied Functional Medicine (SAFM), where I have achieved Level 1 certification, and am undertaking further study at the advanced Level 2 - looking forward to graduating as a fully certified functional medicine practitioner in 2024.
So as a result, having overcome my own health concerns by working on the root causes of my digestive issues, chronic fatigue & weight gain, my top priorities are focusing on health and wellbeing, both physical and mental, from a perspective of prevention rather than cure.
We have seen over the past few years that we can no longer take our health for granted or expect to be fixed by pharmaceutical means alone. We have learned that the more health concerns we have, the more vulnerable we are.
It is no longer ok to live with obesity, type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure; relying on medication to fix us.
Our pills ease our symptoms and act as a sticking plaster but they do not get to the root cause of why our bodies are screaming out to us, by giving us physical pain and discomfort with many more going un noticed until something else crops up.
This is where functional medicine can help, in partnership with you, we can get to the root cause of your suffering and work to alleviate your pain for good
I love to work with health conscious people, who might have got a bit lost along the way on life’s journey or have had a health condition emerge and are not getting the relief or results that they want from traditional medicine.
I work in partnership with you to look at where you are now in terms of health and wellbeing, helping you to understand what your body is telling you and to discuss ways to move forwards at your own pace, on your own terms.
I create a safe space for non-judgemental, confidential discussion and use my experience and knowledge in integrative health to gently coach you towards optimal wellbeing and vitality.
“In a world where we are facing global and unprecedented health crises, focusing on our overall wellbeing is crucial, not just for us but also for our family, friends, our community and colleagues. Going on a diet or upping our exercise is no longer enough, it is time to look at overall lifestyle factors and add in the things that nourish us both internally and externally in order to thrive”
