Dietetic and wellness coaching
I am a registered dietitian and executive wellness coach. I have 20 years’ experience working in the NHS in a wide range of specialties including nutrition support, obesity management, paediatrics, allergies and eating disorders. I now split my time working in change management, focusing on the human side of change, and running a private practice to support people who need to improve an aspect of their lifestyle-both for medical reasons and to just improve their health and work-life balance in general.
My broad dietetic experience together with my coaching and change management training provide clients with unique support which successfully enables them to achieve their nutrition and wellness goals sustainably. I provide no-nonsense, pragmatic nutritional advice that is based on what works. My client-led approach allows people to build a strong understanding of what good nutrition is as well as develop personal awareness of their conscious and subconscious triggers that drive their current habits and behaviour. Combining pragmatic nutritional advice with improved skills in conscious decision-making empowers my clients to develop practical ways to have a healthier lifestyle that is simple and sustainable.
Clients tell me that I create a safe space for people to think well and to take ownership of their choices. I focus on people’s personal assets to facilitate change, rather than concentrating on what they are doing “wrong”. This approach has helped clients to develop simple and effective nutritional knowledge and have a greater understanding of what is stopping them achieve their goals. Focusing on their strengths makes my clients more confident, courageous and choiceful in their decision-making.
My role as a dietitian and executive wellness coach is to create the right environment for clients to find their own sustainable solutions. Supporting people to remove self-created barriers for change, providing no-nonsense, pragmatic dietetic advice and focusing on what is important to the person enables clients to realise their potential by making sustainable lifestyle changes.
