During 2013 - 2014 I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition's cutting edge program. The study included over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
In 2015 I continued on my education at Wellcoaches which focuses on the fundamental psychology and methodology principals behind coaching. Its high end, evidence based and innovative training creates expert facilitators of mindset and behaviour change, looking at both treatment and preventive health.
Over many years I have studied meditation and mindfulness both at Clearlight Meditation Centre in Copenhagen and Dharana Meditation Centre in Thailand, as well as continued self practice, and I bring these principles into my work. I am also certified meditation teacher in Australia.
Even with all this knowledge my biggest education has been my own self healing in overcoming auto immune disease where I worked with an Integrative Doctor who practiced the best of traditional and alternative medicine to overcome illness. I completely transformed my lifestyle and tried many different ways of healing to now be in complete recovery living a fulfilling life.
My original background was in the film industry where I nurtured and developed creative talent, I bring these attributes to my current profession in guiding and assisting people to recognise their strengths, build confidence and achieve their dreams.
Drawing on these many skills and my extensive knowledge of holistic nutrition and preventative health, together we create a vision that generates a sustainable healthy lifestyle, that fosters wellbeing.
