Letting go of food guilt through health coaching

Letting go of food guilt Mrs Foodie, (obviously not her real name) a lovely well respected artist in her early 60’s was riddled with guilt. Guilt over relationships, guilt over communication, guilt over past traumas, and above all food guilt. It’s amazing how we can move through life experiencing all its challenges. The twists and turns of dealing with something so fundamental like our […]

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.

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).

The importance of Primary Foods

When I trained to become a Health Coach, I was particularly interested in learning about what really nourishes us as human beings.

Where else is Vitamin C hiding?

These next few blog posts are all centred around building up immunity for the cold winter months fast approaching. As I sit here at my dining room table, blanket around my shoulders, rain pouring down outside, I ask myself about that very popular Vitamin that is packed full in oranges but ask myself where else […]

The importance of bio-individuality

I was at an event the other day with a wonderful group of independent business women, each with their ow n skills, their varying careers, their individual personalities and their diverse ideas of how to build their businesses.
