My passion for wellness has evolved over 19 years and has motivated me to experience wellness at many levels. As a certified health coach, and personal trainer – trained in nutrition and exercise basics and coaching, my aim is to educate and inspire people to experience the rewards of a healthy, happy body
Prior to focusing on Personal Wellness, I enjoyed 21 happy and successful years in the Corporate world of finance. From managing and supporting staff to educating and coaching staff on interpersonal skills, this experience provided me with a wealth of understanding into the incredible complexities of human nature.
Personal, and mostly silent struggles through my early childhood years, resulted in feelings of insecurity, anxiety, relationship conflict and no sense of direction for many years. This ‘struggle’ background served me well and became the compelling drive to thrive and succeed. My reward now is to inspire others to overcome hardship and pain, and live an empowered, happy life.
I have 10 years’ experience helping clients understand how early childhood trauma or neglect negatively affects their adult life.
Symptoms show up as chronic pain, substance abuse and addictions, emotional struggles with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, relationship conflict, lack of direction and weight issues. These symptoms and life challenges are the clues to deep unresolved emotional pain and unexamined/outdated beliefs and fears of not feeling “good enough”, low self-esteem and negative self-talk.
Firstly, I provide a safe space for men and women to reclaim their lost childhood, through a process of inner child healing. The inner child represents the emotional self, which is often disconnected, and void of most vulnerable feelings/emotions, as a result of childhood trauma or neglect.
Secondly, I guide survivors of sexual violation through a gentle, yet powerful healing process, to recover their innocence lost through the trauma, and develop a potency that strengthens their personal resolve to become the best unique version of self.
I will assist you with signature Wellness Transformation Programs over 4-weeks; 6-weeks; 8weeks to address your unique needs and lifestyle.
We create a compelling Healthy Lifestyle plan that motivates and guides you through obstacles and emotional coaching if you are an emotional eater.
I focus on educating you about choosing the right type of carbohydrate foods to stabilize blood sugar levels – an important factor in weight-loss goals; managing energy and mood levels; food cravings; digestive problems; anxiety/ depression and unhealthy ageing problems that can be prevented.
For the last 16 years, in my private studio, I have guided many clients to reconnect and to trust their hard-working and often neglected body. Now in my late sixties, I wish to inspire my clients to continue caring for their body, though healthy habits of exercise, nutrition, healthy sleep, and a personal value system that honors and embraces their unique needs.
