Personal Background

I was born in 1974 and I have 3 grown-up children. In my 20's I was obese and had no idea about food or nutrition.  I hated exercise. I never knew what exercise to do, or how to do it properly, and always gave up within a week.  Unfortunately I was in a very unhappy and toxic marriage and I turned to alcohol as a means to escape.  Consequently I became an alcoholic, also smoking around 15 cigarettes a day, and probably drinking just as many coffees.  I was in a bad way.  At the age of 33, weighing just under 16 stone, I divorced my husband, joined a gym and concentrated on turning my life around.

 

Personal Trainer

Nutritionist for Weight Management

After 2 years, I had lost 4 stone of body fat, gained 1 stone of muscle mass and became a Personal Trainer in the process.  Despite this achievement, I still felt that my diet could be improved in order to aim for optimal health, so I went on to study Advanced Nutrition for Weight Management.

 

GP Exercise Referral Specialist

As time went on I realised that so many of my clients had health conditions, that I really should endeavour to learn more about prescribing exercise for specific cases.  Losing weight is far more than just looking good, it's about improving your quality of life, sometimes saving your life!  I studied a Diploma in GP Exercise Referral, which meant that I could work safely with people who have chronic health conditions, easing their symptoms and often reversing their condition. I have experience working within a GP referral scheme in London, and having worked closely with Doctors and Physiotherapists, I now help people with their precise medical and health needs.

Qualifications

Never hire a health and fitness professional if they are not forthcoming with their qualifications or insurance details.  Too many so-called health and/or fitness professionals are just self-proclaimed "coaches", with no formal training or qualifications, and often no insurance.  For your peace of mind, my certificates are available to view upon request; my public liability insurance is through Balens Ltd, I have a current DBS certificate and my formal health and fitness qualifications are as follows:
