Raising self-esteem through health coaching

Have you ever struggled with self-esteem? I’d been working with ‘Miss Worth’ (name has been changed) for 6 months now and her journey to raise her self-esteem has been an interesting one. A young woman in her late twenties with so little confidence it was affecting her decisions at work, her relationships and above all, her […]

Client success story – Mr Change

I have an amazing story to share. I have a client who I’ve been coaching for 7 months now. Lets call him Mr Change (obviously he will remain anonymous). He came to me with eating issues having been diagnosed with anorexia 4 years ago. Throughout our work together, we un-covered many of the mysteries around […]

Client success story – Mrs Bleep

Many clients ask me what sort of things people come to me about so I thought writing a few posts about my clients and their journeys would be interesting. Obviously, I have changed any names and the odd fact here and there so they remain anonymous and protected from being identified. Lets call this first […]

The dangers of Table Salt

I grew up in a household where salt and pepper were not a regular feature on the dining table. In fact, I’d go a step further and say that they weren’t even a feature during the cooking process! However, salt is an important element in keeping the proper mineral balance in practically all of the […]

My smoothie and juice diary in the tropics

Whilst away in Costa Rica, I devoured a number of amazing dishes. But what I’d like to write about right now are the smoothies and juices. Deeeeeeeeeeliiiiiiiiiiiiiciousssssssss!!! So, here are just a few of the many variations I was lucky to sample Day 1 – it needed to be something really authentic to the tropical climate […]

Getting the most out of nuts and seeds

It’s pretty amazing how small the world is and how far you can get in a short space of time but more amazing is how much one can learn in just 5 days on an intensive workshop. Last week, I travelled to Santa Teresa, a small beach ‘town’ on the West Coast of Costa Rica […]

Healthy Camping ideas

With summer just around the corner and festival season beginning, camping could be high up on the agenda. Long gone are the days of surviving in the woods with a tin of baked beans and a loaf of bread. There are so many ways of eating healthy foods, even in the middle of nowhere. The […]

A guilt free Simnel Cake at Easter

Simnel Cake doesn’t need to be a sinful cake So, Easter is round the corner and chocolate bunnies and hot cross buns are popping up all over the shops. For those of us that are health conscious types, Easter can still be fun, indulgent and healthy! Great news I hear you say but how…..? Lets […]

The queen of super fruits – the goji berry

I’ve posted a few recipes containing Goji berries (also called wolf berry) but do you realise how INCREDIBLE these little berries actually are? They contain 15 times more iron than spinach contains, have the highest concentration of protein than any other fruit and are bursting at the seams with vitamin C. Overall they are the […]

What actually is a Holistic Health Coach?

We can tell a lot about someone from their facial expressions. Since becoming a Holistic Health Coach I’ve found it fascinating that generally the face expressions when I tell someone my job are all the same! It’s that sort of vacant, blank, “Aaagh, interesting” look, together with those transparent thoughts of, “I feel I should know […]
