Supporting you on your weight loss journey
Are you sick of not recognising yourself in the mirror?
Have you given up on losing weight, yet know somewhere deep down that you’d be healthier at a different size?
Do you feel like you’ve tried every diet but nothing works?
Does it feel like your hormones have changed and you just can’t shift the weight like you could in your 20s?
Maybe you’re wondering if you’ve broken your metabolism by trying all of the different diets over the years: Atkins, Cambridge, 5:2, Cabbage Soup Diet – the list goes on!
Have you read everything you can get your hands on about what you should be doing to lose weight, yet find that you sabotage yourself at times?
Have you suffered from yo-yo dieting throughout your life?
If this sounds familiar, then read on.
I can get into some of my older clothes and I feel more confident about the way I look. The group work was great, it made what felt like a difficult task initially much more motivating. I also enjoyed finding my willpower!
Thank you for introducing me to this! I really feel like I will be able to maintain this weight loss.
Thank you! I feel so much better in myself and more motivated to keep up the principles that will keep me from putting the weight back on.
This programme can help
- Imagine having the support to go through a healthy weight loss programme for 6 weeks.
- Imagine breaking those sugar cravings and no longer being a slave to your urges.
- Imagine losing 5-7kg (10-14lbs) in this time.
- Imagine getting back that confidence that you really can lose weight.
So, what’s involved?
Over the 6 weeks I’ll personally coach and facilitate you to take a step closer to your healthy weight goal.
Using a programme of healthy and nutritious real whole foods (no powders or shakes here!) we’ll work together to help you break your sugar cravings, find ways to create healthy new habits and create an eating programme that will allow you to maintain your new healthy weight after the 6 weeks is over.
You’ll also take a personalised blend of herbs and remedies to support your weight loss during this time.
It’s not just about calories in, calories out. After all most of us who have experienced yo yo dieting most of our lives know SO much about health, dieting and weight loss. Despite the knowledge, there can seem like a block to actually achieving success.
This is usually down to our unconscious thought patterns, habits and limiting beliefs that we’ve accumulated over our life. Part of this programme is about reprogramming your mind and creating new neural pathways that allow your brain to automatically go to the healthy habits rather than the old destructive habits that result in negative consequences.

My story: how I started doing this work
You may be wondering what experience I have in this area. Well, it’s fair to say that I never dreamt of being a weight loss coach, having been someone that’s yo-yo dieted most of her life.
Up until the end of
This was the result of adrenal fatigue and burnout that I’d had for about 5 years: the classic fat around the middle that you develop when you’re stressed out. My adrenals improved
With a background in natural medicine this just felt even worse for me: how could clients come to me for health advice when I didn’t feel like I was in my integrity by living the healthiest version of life that I could? Yet despite my training and the effect on my practice, I found I would still sabotage myself. “I know what I should be doing, so why the hell can’t I just do it?!”, I often thought.
I tried so many different eating plans. Paleo, intermittent fasting, blood type diet – you name it. I shifting little bits of weight here and there but nothing stuck significantly.
As my best friend’s wedding approached I was getting more and more anxious about squeezing into a pretty dress for the occasion. I knew I should try and lose weight but I couldn’t face yet another diet or cleanse that I’d ultimately give up. Then I found a naturopathic health coaching programme that finally helped.
I worked with a colleague (thanks, Jude!) who introduced me to this programme. I was skeptical, but also desperate to lose weight so I tried it and have not looked back.
So far I have personally 20kg (over 40lbs), 3 dress sizes and feel so much more confident in my ability to regulate my eating and my weight by myself. Clients and people around me started asking me to work with them using the same programme when they noticed my results, and so far I’ve helped women in group programmes and 1:1 coaching sessions to lose approximately 8-14lbs with each programme.
I’m still on my own journey and have a bit of a way to go to be in a place where I feel at my healthiest, but I do feel I’m well on my way there. If any of this resonates with you at all I’d love to share this experience with you too.

I really like that I lost the weight quickly, but in what seems like a healthy way. It was straightforward and relatively easy. The main the thing was that I didn’t feel hungry apart from a couple of times. After you joined me up to the group that really helped too.
Beyond calorie counting
I believe It’s about more than just good nutrition and exercise. After all, most of the women that I work with tend to have researched weight loss and come to me with excellent knowledge of nutrition and health. Our problem isn’t that we don’t know what to do, it’s why we don’t stick to it.
In the programme, I have taken the fat burning drops and nutrition plan and placed them alongside mindset coaching to help women really get under the surface of why they are doing what they do. I believe this, along with the change in eating, sets you up for long-term success.
Not one size fits all…
I’m not a fan of the BMI scale or supposedly ‘healthy weight ranges’. I believe that we inherently know what the right size is for our unique body shape and type.
One woman’s healthy size 16 curves may be another size 8 woman’s equivalent picture of health. You won’t find prescriptive nutrition plans or forceful coercion to slim to a certain size here.
You decide what’s right for you, and my role is to hold the space and facilitate your journey, while gently highlighting any blind spots in your mindset that may be stopping you from getting to your best place.
Frequently asked questions
How does it work?
You decide whether you prefer to work in a group or in private 1:1 coaching. We then meet weekly either in a group or in 1:1 sessions. At the review sessions we look at your numbers, how the week has been and discuss anything that’s come up for you as a challenge that week.
Do you have to eat meat?
Not at all. There are vegetarian and vegan options too.
Can you do this programme when you're pregnant?
This programme should be avoided during pregnancy.
Are there any medical conditions that would stop you from doing this programme?
If you have any diagnosed medical condition you should seek the advice of your medical doctor and do the programme with their supervision.
Will this help with sugar cravings?
Yes, this plan works well to get rid of sugar cravings and to get you back on track with healthy eating.
What if I want to lose more than 10lbs (5kg)?
Some women have lost 14lbs on the 6 week programme. It all depends on your body, the time in your life, and how dedicated you’d like to be in that time. If you find you still have weight you’d like to lose after the 6 weeks it is recommended that you have a break for a couple of weeks, still staying on a healthy eating plan to maintain your weight loss, then repeat. Overall it’s recommended you can do this around 4 times a year so if you have a large amount of weight to lose, your body will also have time to gently readjust and make longer term healthy habits.
