Wellbeing Articles and Recipes For Gut Health

Here To Support You Gain Greater Happiness And Wellbeing

 

I use exercise, emotional coaching and nutritional therapy to help you gain optimum health. 

My varied background that includes my own self development journey from the age of 22, when I discovered the book "Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway" this spurred me on to travel alone through Asia to Australia then later,  "You Can Heal Your Life" and "The Artists Way" All had a profound effect on how I viewed myself and my life

 

I started my career as a textile designer and fine asrtist spanning over 10 years. It was after having my first child that I became increasingly interested in how diet, excercise and what we use on our skin effects us greatly.

This path has led me to follow many training courses since my Arts degree. These include, OCR level 2 Exercise To Music, FABS chair based exercise, Oriental Hand And Face Massage, Holistic Facial, Crystal Facial, Hypnotherapy, NLP, Nutritional Therapy Level 5 and the Science Of Wellbeing Certification with Yale University. 

I have been teaching dance and fitness to adults and children since 2005 and know the value of encouraging people to get active. I moved to teaching online classes at the start of 2020 and have clients joining each week from all over the world.

My passion is Brazilian Samba dance and I performed for many years. I now offer total body fitness classes for over 50’s and less able bodied participants. Keeping fit into old age is a passion of mine and dance is still at the heart of what I offer. 

Emotional Coaching is a gentle and powerful addition to my tool box. Since 2014 I have helped clients to release limiting beliefs and let go of unhelpful emotions linked to past trauma. By working one to one with clients I have helped them overcome eating disorders, trauma from past events and even phobias. The beauty of this type of technique is that clients don’t have to keep re-visiting the painful events. They are working with the emotions connected to them and releasing them.

I am passionate about reducing our toxic load, not only for our planet but also by using skincare products that are kinder for us and the environment. As someone that does not react well to synthetic ingredients I use and promote organic skincare. I have worked as an independent consultant with Neal's Yard Remedies for many years educating people about the benefits of using organic and ethical products. This is an important aspect of my work. What we put on our body is as important as what we put in our body.

Natural immunity-boosting tips for autumn

 

Have you noticed as soon as the summer holidays end, the children start school and suddenly everyone seems to come down with a cold? 

 

Here are some great natural remedies and good working practices to help keep germs at bay.

 

Keep your office or workspace well ventilated and free of dust, this includes regularly cleaning computer keyboards and telephones.

Plants have been shown to help keep air fresh in offices so make sure you include a spider plant and peace lily as part of the decor. Even a bunch of chrysanthemum on a desk will make a difference.

Keep hydrated with water and herbal teas that include elderflower, echinacea and ginger in the ingredients.

 

Get plenty of fresh air. Walking after a stressful day, especially in nature has been shown to reduce stress and improve health.

Elderberry syrup has great antioxidant properties and elderberries have been found to be 70% effective against Flu viruses*. The syrup is great added to water or fruit juice, equally can be drizzled over porridge or your favourite desert.

For a treat how about adding a drop to a glass of Cava.

Increase your daily intake of vitamin C, for example a portion of Bell peppers dipped in Hummus, or a kiwi fruit after your meal,  both high in vitamin C. If you decide to go down the supplement route, choose a good quality vegetable based supplement free from fillers.

 

Some useful essential oils if you do succumb to germs. Rosemary oil,  Eucalyptus oil, Pine oil and Tea tree oil. All are naturally antibacterial and have cleansing vapours. Diffuse or inhale to ease congestion. or look for a natural salve free from vaseline (a petrochemical) to rub onto your chest.
