Welcome to my 8 week nutritional therapy coaching programme designed to help you find a renewed sense of vitality at midlife! I love the Traditional Chinese Medicine concept of Yang Sheng – Live well, live long. Why should we compromise this at peri menopause and beyond?
My 60 Day Midlife Reset will help you experience:
- Less severe peri menopause symptoms
- Weight loss (especially around the middle)
- More energy
- Greater lifeload tolerance
- Less mood swings
- Less cravings
- Restorative sleep
- Better digestion
- Better skin, stronger hair and nails
- A reconnection with cooking
- A kitchen and supplement overhaul
It’s all about REALISITIC shifts. You will still be able to function in the real world I promise! The focus is on allowing yourself to make change that benefits you. Just you. No one else. I know that’s a weird concept for us to get around as women, but this is about putting yourself first – even for just the first hour of the day.….!
It includes a tailored programme and 6 coaching sessions to help you balance your hormones at peri menopause, lose weight, sleep better, gain back that lost energy or feel more on an even keel (…or all of these!) Using my 11 years of nutritional therapy experience I will help you bring about meaningful change, and overcome barriers.
Our 24/7 lifestyle means that we have no time, minimal bandwidth and are often so frazzled we have no idea how to stay one step ahead of our cravings or what to cook. Healthful food doesn’t have to be All my sessions are I’m a big believer that small changes can make big differences and are more likely to be sustainable over the long term. I am also a realistic and always fit in with my patient’s lifestyle. Small changes create a ripple effect that helps to make change easier in other areas too.
I am a therapist too, so this is kind of part therapy / part coaching…. I always work with your individual health needs, lifestyle to help behaviour change. This doesn’t happen overnight (especially when you factor in our lifeload) but it will happen gradually. Small changes start to happen such as waking up refreshed or getting quite so irritable with your children (mmm maybe not!) but these small ripples of change start to have knock on effects I promise. I am registered nutritionist with BANT and CNHC and have been in private practice for 11 years. I specialise in women’s hormone health in particular at peri menopause.
It covers 6 nutritional therapy coaching sessions over 60 days. The sessions are provided online via zoom and can fit in around your week. The first session lasts an 1.5 hours, where we talk through your unique health needs and I write an initial programme for you.

Why choose this programme?
The programme is particularly useful for longterm weight loss without the need to calrioe count I promise! The 60 days allows gradual weight loss to occur without dieting. Diet’s don’t work and set us up for feeling like a failure or guilt when we vere off this very restrictive and unrealistic path. My approach is about kick starting our metalolic rate and help to improve energy levels byflooding the body with micronutrients. The more energy we have the more likely you are to want to exercise – the weight loss ripple effect happens. Part of this programme will also address emotional eating as well as caffeine and alcohol. Realistic goal setting so that long term sustainable change can happen.
