What is a Health & Wellness Coach?

As a Health Coach it would be a privilege to support you on your wellness journey …  I find immense joy in helping people reach their goals, potential and find their voice!

As your personal health and wellness guide, I will help you implement lifestyle changes over 3 or 6 months to improve your physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing, in other words reach your full potential!

I will provide accountability, full support and encouragement.

I typically address six key areas that affect wellness, with topics branching off into other categories.

The key areas are:
1. Weight loss
2. Stress
3. Nutrition
4. Sleep
5. Relationships
6. Movement
7. Time management

If one of these areas is out of balance, it is likely some of the others are too. Someone who isn’t physically active may also be highly stressed, not sleeping well or not eating well. Combined, it can feel overwhelming.

I can help you sort out where to start and make small changes that are incorporated into your day/week that will grow over time and can become your new healthier habits.

How I can help you

Together, we will figure out what’s keeping you from reaching your health goals. I will regularly check in with you via email, Zoom, by phone or in-person, usually over the course of three or six months. During these meetings, I will be asking questions to get you thinking about how you can overcome challenges and I will be offering suggestions. Together we form a weekly, monthly, and quarterly plan.

The most common obstacles people face, are their own negative thoughts about themselves, being confused by all the “how to get healthy” information and staying motivated. I will help you work through some of your thought patterns, we will discover what’s blocking them and following through with a sustainable lifelong plan that works.

Your first session will last 2 hours. In this time, we will go through your medical history, you will have been asked for a 4-day food diary before the appointment, your exercise routine, if you have one, we will discuss your stress levels and anything else you feel is stopping you from feeling and doing your best.

Health coaching isn’t mentoring where someone is telling you the answers. A health coach shows up for you in whatever way you need and helps guide you through your innate wisdom so after our time together you feel empowered to live your best life with tools that work for you.

Benefits of having a health coach:

Change is often difficult, even when it’s something we really want. Sometimes it even feels downright impossible. The benefit of a health coach is having someone fully qualified, guiding and motivating you every step of the way, to be your best vibrant self.

One study found that people who went through three months of health coaching significantly improved on the following:

  • Blood Pressure
  • Cholesterol
  • Glucose (blood sugar)
  • Triglyceride (blood fat)
  • Body weight
  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Sleep disorders

As a health coach I can help you with the following:

  • Overwhelmed about work, family life & personal relationships
  • Stress that is impacting your weight, health & work life balance
  • An exercise routine that works for you and is sustainable
  • Diet plan either just for healthy eating or weight loss
  • Better posture, back issues, hypermobility, as I am a qualified yoga teacher with over 20 years’ experience
  • De-clutter your larder, help you understand food labels and do a food shopping trip
  • Tackle all aspects of sleep issues, routine and feeling refreshed on waking
  • Tips and ideas on food, recipes and healthy living
  • Mindfulness & breathing techniques
  • Teach you how to make Kombucha or supply you with it (super healthy gut bacteria fizzy drink – that could balance out your evening tipple!)
  • Chemical free household & body care products that are better for you, your family, and the environment
  • Managing financial stress

I can help and support clients to see they have the strength they need to start making positive changes to their wellbeing. I work on the possibilities based on your unique situation, taking into account your work/family life commitments and ability, so that it’s simpler and easier to make sustainable changes.

As a health coach I also provide:

  • Accountability – Knowing that you have to check in with me about your progress can give you the push you need to move forward
  • Encouragement – I act as a cheerleader to pick you up when you are having a bad day
  • Unconditional support – I do not judge your actions. I help you come to your own conclusions about what works and what doesn’t in reaching your goals

What changes will you see after your time with me?

You will feel calm & motivated. Have an improved digestion, and a clearer mind. You will be in control of your health and life again and have more energy to pursue the things you love.

After our time together you will have gained great new habits and tools that you can tap into whenever life throws you a curveball!

Switching to a healthier lifestyle can affect everything, with increased energy and motivation you’ll be able to do more and live your best life with sustainable tools that absolutely work.

Therapy Ball Rolling Method

What is Therapy Ball Rolling method?

The Therapy Ball Rolling class is a powerful self-treatment method that uses 2 or more grippy and pliable rubber balls, to help eradicate aches and pains to restore your natural movement.

This method helps you identify blind spot areas that are catalyst for pain and injury. These areas are usually underused, overused, misused, abused, exhausted or totally confused and need to be felt, seen and heard by you!

In the 20 years I have been teaching and practising yoga, I have come to understand that we must integrate our painful and achy blind spots into our movement and self-care practice, otherwise we are moving & exercising from an unconscious place and we may struggle to find peace in every day life.

First picture – Ball at the top of spine/base of neck is showing me releasing out my tight shoulders, realigning my posture from sitting at my desk for 60-minutes and soothing an achy back. Always working mindfully, pausing and breathing.

Second picture – Ball over the shoulder-blades I am stretching out the front of my chest/diaphragm for better breathing & oxygenation, releasing tightness in my upper back, stretching out through the armpits and intercostal muscles around the ribcage. One can go as deep as your body will allow you, we listen and stop if there is pain.

Who are Therapy Ball Rolling classes for?

Whether you are a busy Mum running after your toddler with a sore shoulder, a top athlete who wants to improve their performance, a surgeon who suffers with back pain or a desk bound office worker who has painful wrists, the treatment is the same. Dysfunction is dysfunction in whatever ways it shows up.

My Ball Rolling method restores optimal performance in your tissue so that you can do what you want to do, better and pain free and at the same time become aware of your bad movement habits!

In this weekly class you will learn tools to take care of your soft tissue, posture and breath that you will have to hand whenever your body needs it, or as a support system for better living and being in your body … It’s a self-care massage for life.

1. Relieve aches and pains
