STAYING HEALTHY FOR LONGER
why settle for
Founder & Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach
After over a decade of suffering at the hands of ill health and dealing with the worsening effects it was having on my quality of life, I finally began to recover and feel my best again. I spent much of those years looking for answers, researching with great passion, and even obsession, to find a reason why I was struggling more and more with my health; why I was becoming increasingly intolerant to almost everything I ate and drank; and why no conventional or complementary treatments were working. There were so many why’s and very few answers.
My journey led me on a relentless pathway of pain and suffering, and often with feelings of helplessness as my health continued to decline and for no apparent reason. But despite this and my eroding passion for life, I continued to seek out answers and over time developed my own natural solution that put me on the road to recovery. I had finally found hope.
I am evidence that there is a natural way back from making poor and often naive health and lifestyle choices in earlier life, and I firmly believe that if I had the knowledge back then, my health journey would have been very, very different today. Along my incredible road to recovery, I felt increasingly overwhelmed by the abundance of information available to me, and by the often contradicting and mixed messages being published about what we should and should not be doing for our health. I also experienced how much ill health (or just not feeling our best) can slow us down or even prevent us from achieving our dreams and goals.
So when my own health began to improve, I had a strong desire to help others to cut through the overwhelm when looking for healthier choices so that they can start to achieve their dreams and goals. I went on to study and qualify in nutrition and lifestyle coaching, and combining my undeniable passion, experience and vast knowledge for good health, I founded Healthy‑ness®.
Today, I am back to feeling my best again and living life as it should be. I am now channelling my rejuvenated health and energy into helping others find their natural solution so that they too can feel their best and live life as it should be. I am also what I term, a ‘part-time author’ and due to my renewed health, my passion for writing is back! I published the Brodie McHaggis series in 2005 and 2007 (which are available from Brodie’s website) and I am currently focusing my writing on health and wellness.
It is never too early or too late to make a difference to your life. If you are ready to make a difference and are looking for support, then I would love to hear from you – please get in touch.
"I' believe that creating good health is the real secret of success"
My experience, integrity, and no-nonsense, practical approach is my foundation to developing trust and building loyalty.
Along with my research, knowledge base and experience, I am professionally trained in coaching and empowering clients to achieve their goals, identify and manage stress, develop new behaviours and habits and create healthier lifestyles.
I have over three decades of experience working in large engineering, nuclear and health organisations. I understand the complexities of such organisations and how systems, processes and culture can be developed to reduce stress and encourage and support employee wellbeing.
I am extremely organised and help my clients to declutter and create the time they need to create good health in the home and in the work place.
