Nutrition and Health Coaching

  • Do you struggle with all the conflicting nutritional information out there?

  • Do you want to make changes to your health and lifestyle but feel you need help and support?

  • Do you know what to do but struggle to start or maintain changes?

If the answer is yes to any of these, then I can help you make changes within a safe and compassionate environment.

Nutrition and Health Coaching is a way of empowering people to adopt habits that enable them to have a healthier future. It helps them to gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence to address their personal health and lifestyle issues, achieve their goals, and maximise their health and well-being.

Nutrition and Health Coaches are supportive mentors, who work with people to make healthy changes by using a combination of techniques and coaching skills, alongside their personalised nutrition and lifestyle knowledge. Nutrition and Health Coaches provide: wellness and nutrition information, options, guidance, recommendations, support and motivation.

Like a fitness or personal trainer, who keeps your exercise goals in focus, I can help you establish and sustain healthier lifestyle routines, and achieve your personal health goals.

Not everyone knows what they should be doing to improve their health and prevent diseases. It is not just working out what to eat — things like exercise, sleep, relaxation, creativity, work/life balance, spirituality and positive social interaction are all areas of your life that affect your health just as much as the food you choose. Even if you do know, you may be struggling with the minefield of conflicting diets, information, and studies, or with the motivation to implement changes. I can hone in on the information that is relevant to you and your individual needs, as well as helping you with goal-setting strategies, support, motivation and accountability.

I can also help you figure out blocks to your goals. For example, if an individual has an issue with unnecessary snacking through the afternoon at work, I might help them realise that they are not getting enough protein and healthy fats at lunchtime; or their lunch might be fine, but intense stress at work might be causing emotional eating in the form of excessive snacking. Here figuring out the real trigger for the snacking can help the individual make an effective change.

Initial Meeting
During your initial consultation we will meet and discuss your reasons for getting in touch, as well as your health history and any specific goals or issues. Consultations usually last between 60-90 minutes and I hope to get to know you a little and learn how I can help you. I can then put together a flexible and personalised coaching programme to meet your needs and help you achieve a happier and healthier you!

 

Coaching Programmes
Programmes usually include ten sessions, generally lasting 60 minutes. Sessions are spread out weekly or fortnightly over 3 months, in order to build momentum and support habit formation. For more information book a consultation with Charlie.


As part of a coaching programme or single session packages:

Happy healthy kitchen! -Kitchen Detox
I’ll visit you at home and help you go through your pantry. Together we can come up with a healthy stock of foods; and look for any substitutions that may be necessary.  We can also see if there are any kitchen items that might help you when cooking easy, healthy, nourishing meals.


Shopping Buddy
Do you feel uninspired by food shopping? Do you wander around the supermarket overwhelmed by all the options? Do you find yourself ‘impulse’ buying? Do you wonder what is actually ‘healthy’ or nourishing to eat? Do you rarely visit health food shops, or even know what to buy once in there? Wouldn’t it be easier having someone with you to help when you go shopping?
 I can come with you and help you plan a healthy, tasty weekly shop; or we can do an online shop together.

A Nutrition and Health Coach is not a GP, Registered Nutritionist or Dietitian and therefore I will not diagnose, or prescribe medicine. Instead I will support you in making positive changes to your health and lifestyle, or whilst you implement any changes recommended by your medical practitioner.
