So I want to start out by saying a big Thank You for stopping by! I really hope you have found some info that is inspiring your wellness journey and I would love to hear from you if you have any questions or would like some advice.
I thrive on helping others, which has led me to my 'dream career' as a Health and Wellness Coach. Getting to where I am now has been exciting, challenging, there has even been the occasional tear...but I wouldn't change a minute of it! However to really understand why I became a Coach and strive to help others, let me share my own personal journey…
As your Health & Wellness Coach, I listen carefully and help you to navigate the world of often contradictory nutrition advice, to determine what changes are necessary for you!
Each session is completely tailored to your individual goals and intentions. Together, we will delve into your visions and I will provide the tools, information, education and ongoing coaching support to help you achieve your goals.
People want help! With the relentless demands of work and life responsibilities, they are more stressed, burnt-out and despondent than ever before. They are realising that what they've been doing is no longer working...they are looking for something better.
So take a moment...imagine how you would feel to have taken action and achieved your goals...
Making those changes without support and someone keeping you on track is really difficult. It's not that you don't know what to do, it's that we are all creatures of habit! 95% of behaviour occurs out of habit - either unconsciously or in reaction to external demands.
That is why we struggle to make changes that last. Even when the need for change is obvious, and our intentions are strong, we often fall flat.
According to a number of studies, 95% of people who lose weight on a crash diet, gain it back, and a significant percentage of people gain back more than they had originally thought.
Unfortunately if just eating fewer calories or replacing meals with a shake was going to work - we wouldn't be facing current obesity issues globally.
So why is it that 25% of people abandon their New Year's resolution after one week? And 60% of them do within six months? Or that the average person makes the same New Year's resolution 10 separate times without success?
It comes down to a lack of support and accountability. Doctors, dieticians and other practitioners don't have the time or the skills to help you stay motivated and follow through to getting a lasting result. So you default to your set habit, even when you these habits don't make you feel ecstatic.
So as a Health Coach, I fill a significant gap and complement rather than replace the work of healthcare professionals, by helping you develop and obtain your personal goals.
