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 &

Are you lacking motivation or feeling bored with your current exercise routine?
It’s easy to feel demotivated and sink back onto the couch for a Netflix binge rather than exercise – I know. Especially when the weather is still cold and grey.  So I’m excited to announce that bookings are open for my first Wellness Walk and Talk program – it’s a great opportunity to be more active, socialise with other

Move naturally (Blue Zone Lesson #1)

A little while ago I posted about the nine lessons for living well longer; the culmination of many years of research by Dan Beuttner and his colleagues in areas around the world where people live longer and healthier.

The first lesson is to move naturally – to be active without having to think about it. Blue Zones “longevity all-stars”, as Dan Buettner calls them,  incorporate a lot of incidental activity in
