My road to nutrition coaching
For 15 years I worked in public health with global food manufacturers, UN institutions and Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs). I developed behaviour change programmes and lobbied for nutrition policy change at a global level.
My focus changed when I became a mum and began looking at nutrition differently. As a new mother, I struggled with stress, Irritable Bowel Disease (ulcerative colitis) and hormonal issues. I started applying the science of nutrition to my own life and was blown away by how much better I felt through making small changes over time. It was the motivation I needed to refocus my work in nutrition onto people and families like mine.
Qualifications & Practice
From years of working on large-scale behaviour change interventions I am super aware of the importance of change psychology. My nutrition practice is based on the same behaviour change principles - I deliver sustainable lifestyle change rather than short-term ‘diet’ advice.
My Nutrition Coach certification comes from Precision Nutrition, the world’s largest nutrition coaching organisation (advisors to companies like Apple and Nike, with a coaching methodology tested by over 100,000 clients and validated by three peer-reviewed scientific publications).
In my daily practice I use the skills that come from 15 years work in public health - analysis of scientific data for evidence based decision making - coupled with a person centred coaching methodology to deliver 1-1 and community based nutrition support.
With 3 young children,
I fully understand the challenges that come with prioritising your own nutrition and feeding your family healthy food.
