I'm also a mum to two gorgeous girls, and sweet Labrador pup. I live in the UK, in rural Oxfordshire, but work online and see clients globally.
my health has not always been what it is today
I restricted my calories, obsessed about everything I ate and over-exercised.
I had uncontrollable binges, fished food out of bins and made myself sick.
My mood was determined by my reflection.
For so long I was at war with myself, and food was the enemy.
I was disconnected from my true Self, I had no idea who I truly was.
Through a journey of learning yoga, meditation, nutrition, self development and positive psychology I came to a place of accepting myself.
It was a journey from self-loathing to self-love.
Yoga and meditation helped me to get present and to see how I was using food to numb what I was really feeling.
Studying nutrition and becoming an integrative health coach helped me to learn how to truly nourish myself and understand what my body needed to thrive.
Becoming a positive psychology coach taught me how to harness the power of the mind.
Self love is a daily act. It's what we choose to put on our plate, and how we choose to eat it. It's the thoughts that we entertain, and the words we use to describe ourselves. It's the rest and the sleep that we don't have to earn or feel guilty about. It's the amount of joy and laughter we permit ourselves. Self love is the key to everything you desire.
it's not always been easy, but it has been worth it
It brings me the deepest joy and sense of purpose to help women come back home to themselves. To be a guide, light bearer and cheerleader to supporting women to ditch diet culture and negative self-talk and to step confidently into a body they love and respect.
