What is a health coach anyway?

Australians are in a bit of a crisis with more and more people being diagnosed with lifestyle-related diseases like diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.  We need to invest more resources in preventing these lifestyle-related diseases, rather than treatment.

The role of a health coach is to offer support, guidance, inspiration and accountability to help clients to make lasting changes to their lifestyle, through better choices around nutrition and exercise.

To take that one step further, holistic health coaching focuses on all aspects of life, beyond that of food and movement.

One of the fundamental principles of the training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition is “primary foods”. Primary Food feeds us, but don’t come on a plate. When our Primary Foods are prioritised, balanced and fulfilling, our lives feed us, making what we eat secondary.

Primary Foods include healthy relationships and connection, regular movement and physical activity, career satisfaction, financial stability, creativity and spirituality.

A health coach will partner with you to create healthier habits and routines by making step-by-step changes to your lifestyle.

You will gain a deeper understanding of how foods can heal you, how moving more can give you energy and ways in which you can beat fatigue, food cravings and brain fog.

To compliment my health coach training, I also have a bachelor degree in psychology. I adopt a warm and empathetic approach to helping my clients achieve some of their health-related goals. In my past, I have personal experience with weight issues, lack of self confidence, unhealthy body image, hormonal imbalance, thyroid issues, periods problems and adrenal fatigue. Believe me, I can relate to not feeling as good as you know you should. I get it and I’m here to help.
