The food we eat plays a vital role in how we look and feel. Physical activity is important, but nutrition has the largest impact on our health and wellbeing.
Healthy eating habits and active lifestyle are the best way to improve overall health by reducing obesity and related diseases, as well as minimising risk of many other conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, osteoporosis etc.
Holistic Health Coach
As a holistic health coach Amy considers every aspect of your life to bring you back into alignment and balance. Her main aim is for you to find joy and freedom with food and to empower you to listen to what your body is trying to tell you. During your session there will be a focus on a specific symptom or health goal that you will unpack together to get to the possible root cause of the issue. Amy will then help you make long lasting accessible changes to your life through various dietary and lifestyle changes, she may add in wellbeing practices when appropriate. Amy trained with Academy of Healing nutrition and uses an eastern medicine approach in her sessions. She will never make you do something you don’t feel comfortable in doing but asks you come with an open mind when starting your healing health journey.
The initial consultation will consist of getting to know one another and the opportunity for you to share your motivation and goals for these sessions. Before the initial consolation you will be sent an in-depth questionnaire regarding your current symptoms, medical history, your overall lifestyle patterns and dietary preferences. This allows Amy to gain a better understanding of your individual needs and it helps to identify the possible root causes before the session so you leave already having made some goals. After the initial session you will be required to fill out a food diary before your next session. This is so Amy can gain a better understanding of your dietary patterns and what you enjoy eating so she can continue making accessible steps for you.
Additional consultation will give you the opportunity to check in and a chance for you to share how you have been getting on and ask any questions. Amy will then make further recommendations more focused on your diet, recommend food alterations and alternatives. Together you will form a plan in going forwards and how to integrate these changes into your day to day life. The plan will be added to or amended in future sessions.
A minimum of 3 sessions is recommended to start with for making some real lasting changes and to gain a better understanding of your journey to better health. The first two sessions are best 2 weeks apart and then you can discuss together when it would be best to have each session moving forward. Often people like the support of a holistic coach over the course of 2/3 months as healing the body can take time.
