What Is a Health Coach?
As a Health Coach I am your partner in getting well. I promise to listen openly about what in your life is unwell, how this affects you, and together how we can get you to a place of radiance and wellbeing. Starting at our first session we will identify your wellness goals and begin to map out how to get there. I never want you to feel deprived, restricted, and like you have to overhaul your lifestyle overnight, but I do expect you to want to feel better and be willing and open to making some adjustments in order to get there.
As a Digestive Health Coach my practice is ideal for women suffering from upset stomachs, bloating, general discomfort, fatigue, acne, and many other symptoms of an imbalance and issue with the gut. These symptoms may seem to be all food related, but in fact they can be caused by many other factors such as stress, relationship trouble, and a toxic work environment. Together we will look at the intersection of food and lifestyle, and get to the root cause of your discomforts. My role is not to replace doctor or registered dietician, and in some cases I partner with them. As your Health Coach my job is to give you with tools to feel better, and provide a space where you feel listened to and supported on your journey to wellness.
