We all give a different meaning to the word WELLBEING.
Some may resonate with the feelings of living illness free, others may describe it as optimum health for carrying out extraordinary sporting endeavours. Each one of us lives at different paces but there is really no excuse for not living in a state of health and wellbeing.
Our lifestyle choices shape the person we are. Habits good and bad, emotions, past experiences and daily situations reflect what we see in the mirror.
Are you happy with what you see in the mirror?

HEALTH COACHING PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
This is where it all gets very exciting. Welcome to making changes around YOUR health.
It seems you’re researching and interested in embarking on a health coaching program so I congratulate you on making the first step.
Like they say, nothing worthwhile comes easy, but with my guidance and support, we will definitely put that theory to the test!
With personalised Nutrition and Health Coaching packages developed around your key areas, I’m available for private mentoring sessions from 2 – 8 weeks and beyond. I’m confident we can work through a range of sustainable lifestyle modifications together with the end result being a renewed approach to your health and long-term goals.
HEALTH COACHING PACKAGES
(which encompass nutrition, fitness, stress management and lifestyle)
I have developed these packages to cover varying time frames dependent on your desired outcome.
These packages are a cost-effective way to establish an effective plan and work together in reaching your goals. The longer the time frame the more we are able to dedicate to unearthing what makes you tick while formulating strategies to assist in overcoming barriers. (see package suggestions below)
Personal food audits via photo/lists or on location. I will assess your fridge/freezer/pantry and suggest healthier options plus additional items so you’re creating your own healthy recipes in no time while cleaning up your eating habits.
CONSULTS / FOLLOW UP CONSULTS
I’m here to hold your hand through your wellness journey so if there is any time you feel like a follow up consult or just want someone to bounce ideas off then these consults are available. After we finish a program it can be reassuring to know I am here and for this reason, I offer a monthly service with unlimited emails and 1 x 60 min phone call to give you the confidence to go on your own.
Want to get into shape but not sure where to start and in need of some motivation to keep going? Together we can plan a workout program with goals that suit you and your lifestyle while devising strategies to overcome hurdles that have stood in your way in the past. Warning – this may cause an addiction to exercise!
Corporate Wellness Programs
Corporate wellness programs educate and promote self-responsibility while motivating individuals and teams to tackle resistance areas or a willingness to take it on themselves.
Taking a holistic client-based approach, my style of coaching enables you and your staff to consistently begin to make the correct changes towards living a healthier lifestyle through activity, healthy eating habits and mental fortitude. Setting a new benchmark, health coaching takes a non-diet approach and tackles stubborn and unwanted habits head-on through confidence building and mental awareness techniques.
In our bigger, busier and fast-paced world, it’s easy to forget the importance of maintaining health and fitness. Unhealthy patterns slowly creep in and form our new existence. Without strategies to help overcome these habits, often we resort to crazy fad diets and unrealistic fitness programs that only act as a short-term solution and leave us lacking the confidence to try again.
My corporate wellness programs are designed to help you and your team build a solid platform, be better equipped to maintain sustainable health choices and ultimately improve the bottom line of your company.
IS YOUR COMPANY PROMOTING A HEALTHY WORKPLACE?
Research has shown that employers have a unique opportunity to improve the health and well-being of their staff. It’s no surprise to know that a worker’s health status impacts on their productivity and absenteeism at work. The healthiest Australian employees are almost three times more productive than their unhealthy colleagues.
Doesn’t it make sense to educate and inspire your team of ways they can improve their own ‘health style’?
Allow me to help guide your staff back on track.

“Teach a child about healthy eating and you feed them nutritiously for a lifetime”
With a burgeoning national epidemic of childhood obesity, the answer isn’t to give up, what’s needed is education. Parents are increasingly looking to schools to provide life skills that not only they may be lacking themselves but to ensure their child has a healthy future. In a time poor society, we are simply not taking the time to pass on skills required for good health – and without health, we cannot reach our potential…
As a Nutrition and Health Coach, former world Ironwoman champion and mother of two, I’m passionate about ensuring everyone has the knowledge and education to live their optimal life. Not only as an ambassador for the Gold Coast Active and Healthy Program, I deliver group workshops, support individuals through health mentoring, plus corporates and schools in their quest to promote wellbeing for students and staff.
Healthy habits start at a young age…
Through engaging workshops, I promote discussion within the group while providing education on
the importance of nutrients in the diet, why we need to cut back on sugars, processed foods and trans fats.
how to fuel the brain for optimal learning
how mental health is linked to poor nutrition and lack of sleep
the importance of preparing homemade meals,
what to look for when choosing what to eat/ how to read food labels,
why physical exercise is about how it makes you feel rather than look
how quality sleep is a key component to success
why having a growth mindset allows us to take responsibility
All of which provides the perfect platform to foster optimal learning and brain health
Other Topics include
In addition to the four pillars of student success (mindset, exercise, sleep and nutrition) I also offer workshops in the areas of
Mental preparation and rehearsal for success in sport
Specific cooking classes
Body positivity workshops
Parent workshops held during or after school hours
Staff wellbeing days
Staff wellbeing days are designed to be presented and facilitated in-house, with a focus on empowering staff to steer themselves on a journey toward better health. Projected outcomes include
Foster wellness with a common goal among staff = team building
Increased health = productivity
Examples of discussed topics: the importance of self-care, mental wellbeing, stress management, challenging current mindsets—habits– recognizing resistance to change, nutrition—what constitutes healthy eating (with healthy snack/meal cooking demonstrations/ taste testing’s) – how to read food labels, shop wisely.
How to overcome unhealthy habits by recognizing urges and reactions. Breaking current life scripts (neuroplasticity) by making positive life changes at home and at work.
Questions relating to each discussion will form each individual’s blueprint and goals/focus to move forward with. Presented in a light mannered way to engage and possibly win over the less inclined
