Food Habits is all about enjoying food and learning practical strategies to manage your health so they become a normal part of your life. It is not about hard work and depriving yourself. 


At your initial appointment I will conduct a dietary and lifestyle assessment. We will agree on some initial goals to best manage your health that fit within your lifestyle. 

At follow up appointments your progress and goals are reviewed. We work through any difficulties you may have had and progress towards a healthy lifestyle together.

Don’t feel confident in the kitchen? Is cooking one of your least favourite tasks? I offer cooking lessons in your home. Learn cooking skills in a relaxed, informal style that will help you to feel that cooking and food aren't the enemy. This is basic cooking at it's best. Want to know how to make a moist, light cake? Do you want to create a meal you feel confident sharing with friends? Lessons are tailored to fit your level of cooking skills and what you want to achieve. We will prepare a meal together with your recipes or mine. You can choose the number of lessons you wish to have.

Community and Workplace Presentations and Wellness Programmes

Whether I’m talking one on one with a client or talking to a room full of people my message is the same: the what is so much less important than the self-care and structure of eating.

The ‘what’ is the information we hear all the time. I’m sure you know it by now, even if you feel totally confused by it: eat more… eat less… eat a balanced diet.

We don’t hear so much about the other factors that influence those ‘what’ decisions:

  • Where do we eat?
  • Why do we eat?
  • When do we eat?
  • How do we eat?

When we can respond effectively to these factors then the ‘what’ will take care of itself.

My aim is to inspire change about how we think about food and food choices; to eat without guilt and to savour each food moment. To encourage others to eat in a way that responds to our natural self-preservation cues of hunger and fullness and our body’s natural desire to be healthy and feel good. To foster that trust in your own body to make food decisions that are right for you.

If you would like me to speak at your work place, community group or school please get in touch.

Prices vary and special rates apply to community groups and schools.
