ABOUT ME

I’m a certified mindset coach, a nutritionist and qualified personal trainer, and I combine those skills to transform my clients' health.  Why?  Because it's personal...

I have experienced the transformative power of optimal nutrition, mindset practice and physical conditioning in my own life.  I have experienced depression. I have confronted substance dependency and compulsive behaviour. I have radically altered my career path. I have immeasurably improved my personal relationships, and while I often struggle and routinely fail, I’m happier and healthier than I have ever been.  Through Personal Coaching I want to share with you what I have learnt to help you realise a better future. I want to transform your life and in doing so improve our collective health as a society.

Background

In my final year at university, aged 20, I developed IBS and at 30 I experienced depression.  In the intervening decade, I spent seven years in the commodity trading industry in analysis, brokerage and management.  Bookended by time in the City of London, five of the seven years, I spent living and working in Shanghai and Singapore.

I experienced professional success and made lifelong friends, but it took its toll.  I fed off the buzz of closing deals and the pressure of meeting deadlines and delivering presentations to rooms full of people.  To medicate my emotions, I smoked, I drank too much, I ate badly, I pursued meaningless relationships and short-term highs. I didn’t like how I felt because I didn’t like myself and I didn’t know what to do about it.  Undernourished, over-stimulated, stressed, tired, hungover, jetlagged, self-centred, angry and without a guiding vision for who I wanted to be, I crashed.

I understand that depression isn’t a one-off, and that we are likely to experience multiple depressive episodes in our lives and I know that there isn’t a quick fix when it comes to managing chronic digestive conditions, but I’ve transformed my life by changing how I think, eat, drink and move, to change how I feel and act.  I sought out my solutions and will you help you find yours.
