Food really is medicine, but nutrition alone is not the golden ticket to good health. How we move, our emotional state, how we cope under stress, our connection to ourselves and to others; it all matters.
“You are what you repeatedly do”
The science of habit change is a key component of my health coaching methodology – altering our daily behaviours and thought patterns can have a massive impact on the trajectory of our health and happiness. Most people already know how to be healthier, the problem is they just aren’t doing it.
My first instinct after being diagnosed with cancer was to learn everything I could about the power of nutrition. This led me to the College of Naturopathic Medicine where I completed The Nutritional Food Chef Diploma. It gave me a practical approach to nutrition for everyday living, which is exactly what I teach my clients today.
I also trawled through countless books, podcasts and TED talks and went on to study for a further year to become a certified health coach (UK Federation of Holistic Therapists) with a particular focus on behaviour psychology and habit change.
