BHlthSci (Nutritional Medicine)
Certified Health and Wellness Coach
Tired? Over weight? Not feeling the best version of yourself but unsure what to do to fix it? We’ve all been there, we have all tried millions of different things, some have worked, some haven’t. But somehow we ended back here. Back feeling demotivated, feeling stuck, feeling like we can’t change, feeling hopeless and dissatisfied and not loving the person that we see looking back at us in the mirror. The thing is not all foods are created equal and not all diets, or programs or methods of eating work for all of us. We are unique, we are all made up of different vital bioenergies that are responsible for the physical and emotional tendencies in the mind and body. A food that nourishes one can be a poison to another.
So what works for you? What is the best way of eating for you? What is your make up and what foods will enhance your vitality and what foods will diminish it? What daily practices will nourish you?
I specialise in helping people discover this, to discover what your vital bioenergy is and to create a way of eating along with daily lifestyle practices that will enhance your life force, your vitality and bring you back into balance so that you are feeling vibrant again.

I have had a love of food from a young age, from creating recipes in the kitchen with my sister and my mum always by my side, singing and dancing, we would always recreate unhealthy recipes into a healthy version. It would always be messy and we would never follow a recipe. I have also been fortunate enough to grow lots of our own fresh food in the home garden and I realised from a young age that anything from the earth will always be better than anything that will ever come out of a package. This healthy upbringing coupled with a desire to create optimal health within my body after a few of my own health battles, including the urgent removal of my gall bladder 10 years ago. Which was followed by a confusing time of what to now eat and how to be healthy. I found that I was given no support or information on diet after surgery and what this meant for my health going forward. After gaining excess weight, suffering from fatigue and malabsorption, I was driven to take matters into my own hands and learn how to get my vitality and health back by studying Nutritional Medicine. My studies emphasized the endless benefits of food as medicine and the innate ability we have to heal ourselves using our own vital force. Through helping myself overcome my health battles, I am now motivated to help others with theirs. I believe that health and nutrition are the cornerstones of a vibrant existence and am passionate about educating, motivating and spreading this message to others.
