What you get with Mind-Body Nutrition

The best of Transformational Nutrition and Eating Psychology in a positive approach that reboots your health and advances your personal power.

You will learn

  • Why NOT to count calories and how to make friends with your mind and biology so you KNOW what to eat. 
  • How to eat intuitively so you never have to go on a diet again.
  • That willpower has nothing to do with eating, and how a simple shift in your mindset will create more change and momentum than ever before.
  • How the psycho-physiology of your emotions, stress and relaxation affect your digestion, immunity, energy, mood and metabolism – and exactly how to master it.

How is Mind-Body Nutrition Different?

  • Calories in calories out method that makes you eat less and exercise more
  • Quick fix
  • Food deprivation
  • Method that reduces you to a number on the scale
  • Program that takes your personal power away

  • Empowering approach to your challenges with food and health
  • Positive relationship with food and your body
  • Lasting results
  • Beyond food – exploring the personal dimensions that affect your weight, health and eating behaviours
  • Developing your body wisdom 
  • Nutritional strategies that nourish – not punish
  • Detoxing from toxic nutritional beliefs 
  • Eating to the rhythms of your body with bio circadian nutrition 
  • Having fun!

This is your time to take charge of your health and your body in a way that changes you inside and out.

My organism was finally functioning and I had a deep sense of relief, freedom and happiness.
Over 1 year of conventional medicine has done little to help me, and I want to share just how important your work has been to me. Thank you for everything!

Who should Enroll in Mind-Body Nutrition?

According to

The World Health Organisation:

  • In 1980, 108 million people had diabetes – in 2014, this number raised to 422 million
  • 1.9 billion people – were overweight in 2014
  • 350 million people – are currently affected by depression
  • 12.6 million people – died as a result of living or working in an unhealthy environment in 2012
  • Number 1 cause of death globally – Cardiovascular disease

The American Institute of Stress:

  • 3 out of 4 doctor visits are for stress related ailments
  • 40% of stressed people overeat or eat unhealthy foods,
  • 40% – percentage by which Stress increases the risk of heart disease


  • 83% of dieters gain back more weight than they had lost
  • Repeatedly losing and gaining weight is linked to cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and poor immune function.

The Parliamentary Group on Body Image:

  • 60% of adults report feeling ashamed of the way they look.
  • One in four, 7 year old girls have tried to lose weight at least once and one third of young boys aged 8-12 are dieting to lose weight.

I don’t want you to add up to the above statistics.
And truth is, most people don’t even know they have these conditions.

If you suffer from any of the above, another diet won’t fix it. We have to address the whole of you, mind, body, spirit, your lifestyle and past history.

Why me

Over 16 years in the wellness industry, 2 decades struggling with eating disorders and alcohol addictions, severe IBS, disabling back pain and adult acne gave me an in-depth understanding of the effects our mental and emotional state have on health, mood and weight.

I tried every diet, exercise and therapy you can think of. In the process I became a Transformational Nutrition Coach, Eating Psychology practitioner, Pilates, Tai Chi and Qigong teacher.
I’m also a former professional dancer.

I was fortunate to have studied at top schools for dance and movement, including Laban conservatoire for Dance in London and Salzburg’s Experimental Dance Academy in Austria. I learned with some of the world’s top professionals in the fields of nutrition, psychology and personal development, including Cynthia Pasquella founder of the Institute of Transformational Nutrition, Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, Gina DeVee, success coach and founder of the Divine Living Academy and Brendon Burchard, one of the world’s top leading figures in personal development.




I’ve got the study and the creds, but my work is delivered from a place of real life experience.

Having someone hold your hand can make all the difference between staying stuck or reaching places even you though impossible.
