As a Certified Eating Psychology Practitioner and Master Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach I absolutely love helping others become more of who they are truly meant to be. I have always wanted to be healthy, and I would place more emphasis on working out than on nutrition, and I would make slow changes overtime, however, it wasn’t until 2011 that I became much more serious about it when my first daughter was born. When she was born we had some complications in regards to her weight and throwing up, my milk supply and a few other things. I wasn’t quite convinced that what the doctors were telling me was all there was and thus began the start of my more involved health journey. Over the next few years I began to learn more and more about health and nutrition and I began to explore what foods were working for me and as well for our kids, and what wasn’t.
Eventually my own curiosity, research and exploring, led me to somehow find a webinar put on by The Institute for the Psychology of Eating in 2013. I joined the program for their 2014/2015 year and was thrilled with what I learnt from them. The program really resonated with me as it just made sense that so many of our health concerns aren’t just food related, but also related to our life circumstances, our stories, our experiences, our relationship with food, and more. One thing I did feel like I was missing was more of the nutrition facts, which led me to The Institute for Transformational Nutrition. These programs are quite similar; however I was glad to find some key differences and am grateful for both programs.
Because of my training through both of these programs I am not only more comfortable talking with others about health and wellness, but I also feel confident in helping others take a more holistic approach when it comes to their life. You see, I believe that we are made up of body, mind and soul, and that these elements of our self cannot be separated. Because these cannot be separate I believe we need to approach our lives with this in mind; each aspect – body, mind, soul – are interconnected and work together to create a whole healthy being. When we are missing any one of these pieces it creates a suffering in some capacity in the other two, and we miss out on who we are truly intended to be.
I believe that we’re meant for so much more than living in pain and misery and discontentment. We’re meant to live a life beyond chronic aches and fatigue and mediocrity. We’re designed to be healthy and whole, not depressed and sick. We’re designed to be whole, not broken and we don’t need any more drugs to just survive but rather we need wholesome to thrive. And it’s possible to achieve wholesome living by addressing each aspect of our life: our body, our mind, and our soul.
And so now, I help others to become more of who they’re truly meant to be – body, mind and soul – through a unique, holistic approach that integrates psychology, nutrition and spirituality. I teach others to love and appreciate every aspect of who they are; to care about what they consume, physically, mentally and emotionally, all so that they will begin to love the life they’ve been gifted and live out who they truly are.
I work with others who have health challenges and concerns in such areas as weight, digestion, energy & fatigue, depression and some hormonal imbalances, and those who just want more out of life, while aiming to help them become their best self by moving up, body, mind and soul.
