Food. It’s such a big conversation isn’t it? There is so much diversity in beliefs around food, diet, what is healthy and what is not. Social media, advertising, and health “gurus” all seem to have something different to say.
Sometimes we might even think we know what is good for us, and yet, we just can’t seem to do it? Our behaviours are subject to our environment, emotions, jobs, lifestyle, relationships, where we live, culture and even the change of season!
As a Nutrition Adviser, I am here to empower you to feed and nourish your body for the life you want to live. No fads, no weird science, no miracles here. What I do offer is sound advice tailored to you as an individual, support and motivation to help you meet your goals. We’re in it together until you’re ready to go it alone.
I am qualified in the following Association for Nutrition (AFN) accredited courses...
Nutrition and Weight Management
Maybe you want to drop a dress-size? Maybe you want to lose a few kilograms? Maybe you want to put on a few kilograms? Maybe you want to know how to maintain your weight? Or maybe you just want to know a bit more about the foods you eat and how they’re benefitting you? Let’s discuss your goals and work together to get you there.
Nutrition for Sport and Exercise
The link between performance and nutrition is undeniable. Are you eating optimally to fuel your performance? Whatever your sport, whatever your level, whatever your goals: from improving your time at the Park Run, to bench-pressing 120kg for 3 reps, to maintaining your performance on the pitch beyond half-time. Nutrition has a key role to play in optimising your sporting performance.
Childhood Nutrition and Obesity Prevention
As someone who has worked in Primary School education for over 13 years and as a parent, this is something I am whole-heartedly passionate about. I know children respond to kindness, choice, and all importantly having a voice. If you are a parent and you are concerned about your family’s nutrition; if you want facts, support and a way to help your child be their best, then I want to be on your team!
Pre and Postnatal Nutrition
From preconception to wanting to reclaim your body post-pregnancy; I can offer you sound advice sanctioned by health care professionals and that follows current government guidelines for the health of your unborn child and for you as a woman.
Behaviour Change Coaching
This is not a separate topic; it actually underpins every aspect of nutritional change or indeed any kind of change you want to make to your life. Often, the changes we need to make are simple but they’re not always easy! Work with me to identify your barriers to change, what motivates you and how you can apply practical solutions to help you on the path to achieving your nutritional goals.
