Free discovery sessions & $49 mini lifestyle coaching sessions

I ran a couple of surveys recently to find out what your main health challenges are, how you’d like to feel and how I can best help.

Not surprisingly, you told me that if you could resolve your health challenges you’d feel: energetic, sexy, happy, joyful, satisfied, healthy, confident, more in control, on top of the world, proud, clear and focused… you get the picture!

The great thing is that wellness &

Here’s to a healthy (and awesome) 2017!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a great Christmas and holiday season with family and friends.

Do you love the idea of a fresh start and the endless possibilities that a new year offers But find yourself making resolutions that only last for the ‘new’ bit of the year?  You’re not alone: One study from the US found that only eight percent of us actually stick with resolutions.

Unfortunately this annual

Slow down & live longer (Blue Zone Lesson #6)

Blue Zones Lesson #6 is very apt for many of us during this crazy, hectic time of year.

Unfortunately, our way of life tends to value busy-ness and constantly ‘doing’ over taking time to just ‘be’. Relaxation isn’t just a ‘nice to have’ though, it’s crucial to our health and wellbeing (see this article too), helping brain function and memory, protecting us from illnesses like depression and heart disease, and even

Hormonal (Im)balance #1: PMS & perimenopause

I gave a talk on evidence-based ways to balance hormones last weekend and thought I’d share them with you in the coming weeks. Did you know…

More than 75% of women suffer with symptoms of PMS, perimenopause and menopause
Many women find their PMS symptoms worsen as they get older
Many women who experience bad PMS or whose PMS symptoms started early experience a worse perimenopause (yikes, double whammy!)

What the #@*! is perimenopause?

Still not sure what perimenopause is? You’re not alone. I certainly had no idea when I started getting symptoms in my early forties. I just figured it was way too early for “that menopause thing” no-one talked about, when you suddenly become old, undesirable and past-your-use-by-date. (Hopefully we’ve moved on from that outdated thinking!)

Perimenopause is a fairly new term which “describes symptoms caused by normal hormonal fluctuations that occur as

Is your anxiety worse? (Part 2)

Last week I mentioned that anxiety is one of the first – and also one of the most common – symptoms of perimenopause. Many women find their anxiety gets worse as they hit this time of life… which is bad news because anxiety can worsen other perimenopause symptoms like hot flushes.

Fortunately, lifestyle changes help many women manage (if not alleviate) their anxiety. In this week’s newsletter I’ve got a few

Is your anxiety worse? (Part 1)

Are you between your late 30s and your 50s and feeling more anxious – or anxious more often?

Anxiety is one of the most commonly reported – and often one of the first – symptoms of perimenopause (the years leading up to menopause). Many women with chronic low-level anxiety find it worsens around this time of life, while others who’ve never had anxiety issues suddenly find themselves struggling to cope with
