A little more about me

My interest in food with relation to my health began at 18. When after a serious of minor, but continual ailments plagued my teenage years, I visited an iridologist whom suggested some dietary changes to improve my immune system.

Although as a teenager these changes seemed pretty extreme and only sustainable for a month, they did in fact have a profound effect on my relationship with food, my health and also my life in general. I have never looked back and although I do not restrict my food intake in any way, a balanced, nutritious diet has become a way of life for me – allowing me to be aware of the food I eat and its effects on my individual mind and body, without being judgemental of the odd indulgence. It is this relationship with food that I aim to share with my clients. Making lifestyle and dietary changes that will offer them understanding of their bodies individual needs and requirements, that will help support optimum health for both mind and body.

For the past 20 years my vocational experience has been based mainly in the entertainment industry, where I have been both a successful recording artist and actress. Over this period of time, I have often been subject to pressure over the importance of physical image. Fortunately though, throughout all this I have still managed to maintain a healthy relationship with regards to food. However, over the years I have made many friends who have suffered or continue to suffer with various eating disorders. It is through some of these close relationships I began to understand the complexity of our emotional relationship with food, and further increased my interest in health and nutrition.

When not studying, cooking or eating food, my spare time is mostly spent with my young daughters and husband, although I do still get time to enjoy yoga, walking, playing the guitar, singing, travelling and watching movies.
