Having spent many years trying to juggle the demands of family life and the demands of a stressful career in the corporate world, I realised my health was suffering and took the decision to requalify. In 2005 I started operating as a freelance personal trainer and sports massage therapist. I then decided to focus on weight management, and, not long afterwards, became a Zest4life weight loss coach and nutritional advisor.
I am passionate about the benefits of diet and exercise in our quest for health. I have witnessed first hand the ravages that stress can wreak on our health and conversely witnessed how diet can really improve our well being.
I have had experience of working with all age groups, both male and female, from teenage to 90 years old and offer one-to-one coaching and small group classes. I believe in a rounded approach to weight management and, where appropriate, I like to offer a package of diet (low-GL zest4life), exercise, postural alignment and stretching to achieve maximum health benefits.
I have a particular interest in emotional eating or eating dysfunctions associated with stress or mild depression.
