My Approach





I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness
, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does the stress of being a mum, unsupportive relationships or lack of sleep cause you to overeat? Does broken sleep, juggling multiple hats or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.

Whilst I believe that to see a result you do need to set a goal and have a structured plan I also believe that change needs to be intuitive and you need to listen to your body for its signals regarding exercise and eating.

Food should nourish the body and food can be used to heal, as Hippocrates said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” and I believe that having “healthy intentions will assist in disease prevention”.

Exercising should be fun and rewarding, leaving you feeling revitalised and full of energy! If you don’t like an activity then don’t do it, life is too short to push yourself through punishing workouts!

Together we’ll work to reach your health goals and as we progress, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.


Integrative Nutrition® Plate

The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!



Primary Food™

It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.


Bio-Individuality™

The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.


Crowding Out

Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will “crowd out” the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you all the way.

 


Deconstructing Cravings

Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
