Hi, I'm Michelle - a Nutrition & Eating Psychology Coach
I have a non-diet, holistic approach to health and wellbeing. I am dedicated to helping you reach your ideal body weight, building healthy relationships with food, mind, and body to live the life you want in the body you love.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I came to see Michelle as she had been recommended by a colleague as the person to go to when you don't want to diet. I wasn't entirely sure what she was going to do with me, other than nutritional advice, however it was amazing for me to finally realise that it wasn't just about food that was my reason for putting on weight. Once I got my head around this and did my homework Michelle gave me, the weight finally started to shift.
“It has been absolutely wonderful to work with Michelle, it's been the best investment I've ever made in my health. I'm looking forward to continuing with what she has taught me and I am excited for the rest of my diet-free life!”
"Who knew that stress played such a big part in weight loss! It has been great working with Michelle and finally finding a way to lose weight without counting calories and be given help to reach my goals that I know I can do for the rest of my life!"
Michelle was able to help me work towards my goals by gently changing my perspective and helping to give me a full, deep understanding around what a healthy balanced lifestyle and healthy balanced mind actually looks like. She gave me the tools to look into my internal chatter and understand where it stems from, why I was speaking to myself like that, and then how to realign this in a simple, healthy way.
The biggest tangible change I have noticed since working with Michelle has been my mindspace. My acne cleared up, my hair loss slowed down, and I actually have lost a little weight, but the most exciting, relieving feeling I have had since working with Michelle is knowing that I am in control of my own happiness and actually believing I am enough, and loving the "perfect body" that I have had all along. I have never loved myself more. I wake up every morning and am happy with the person and the body I live in - not because my looks have changed, but because my mind has.
I would describe Michelle as a wonderwoman. She is kind and gentle and extremely knowledgeable. Talking to Michelle soon became the highlight of my weeks. She is professional and productive whilst also being like a friend you would catch up and go brunching with! I would recommend Michelle to every person I know. To anyone who has suffered with body image, eating disorders, negative internal chatter, weight gain/ loss, stress, or just any feelings of inadequacy. Michelle has literally changed my life for the better.
I have been yo yo dieting for most of my life. I always like a failure and that I was always going to battle with this weight problem. I spent 20+ years snacking uncontrollably after dinner and I really never thought I would be able to stop. However, having worked with Michelle for one month, my night time cravings stopped. I really couldn’t believe it as I didn’t think this was possible. I feel like I finally have power back over what I eat. This has been life changing for me. She really does change lives.”
“For over 20 years I used food to cope. I used food to distract myself from other things going on in my life. I didn’t know how to deal with emotion, and always ate to make me feel better. Michelle helped me to understand why this was happening and gave me tools to stop using food as for comfort and develop a better relationship with food. I no longer seek comfort in food, I seek it in myself. This alone has been life changing.”
My main goal in working with Michelle, was to overcome my dislike of nearly all food, following a gastric sleeve surgery. Michelle was able to help me with this goal, by finding out and understanding what was causing this, and then setting out a plan to introduce different food that I would eat. With Michelle’s encouragement and plan I am now eating a bigger variety of food and am feeling healthy again. To find someone that listens, researches, encourages and helps you get back to the person you were is rare. Thank you for helping me.
