“It’s not about kale & chick peas, holistically it’s about the person from top to bottom. I have never come across anybody who has a fantastic diet but has really poor sleep and is doing well, we need all of these bits together.”
Clare’s Signature Story:
- A certified nutritionist and health coach and mum of 3 children – the motivation for doing what I do today.
- Once in a busy corporate career, I now specialise in helping women transform their own and their family’s health.
- Providing families with the tools to create lifelong healthy habits and help kids thrive.
- With 2 young children and a demanding corporate job, I started to put my own health and nutrition way down my list of priorities, my energy levels were on the floor, I was exhausted yet wasn’t sleeping well.
- Around this time, my little boy was starting to show signs of significant sensory issues that would eventually require additional support and help. Meal-times became very stressful and getting him to eat anything healthy was becoming a real and worrying challenge.
- So I went in search of answers.
- I tried to teach myself what I could. I read and researched, but was completely frustrated by the overwhelming, conflicting and at times misleading information out there.
- But I was disheartened that I couldn’t find the answers I needed to help my son. I learned that even the most well-read, health conscious parent can feel lost when it comes to nutrition.
- It was then I decided to go back to college and study nutrition and from that my business was born.
- I now specialise in empowering women to transform their health and live healthier, happier lives.
- Giving them the tools to create lifelong healthy habits, increase energy levels, reduce stress, improve sleep and feel confident again.
- Helping to break punishing diet cycles and overwhelm, taking the stress out of mealtimes and helping their families thrive
