Stress, Anxiety & Depression
How food affects your moods
With so many diet options and convenience food options, most of us do not understand exactly what we are eating. We get conflicting advice all the time so it is not surprising we don’t know what to do. That is why my programmes and my recipes are all about real, whole foods!
I can guarantee that if you follow certain slimming clubs or diet plans, you will be completely shocked by the amount of sugar you are still eating daily! It is on average 10 TIMES MORE than the NHS recommended guidelines! This also explains why, when we are a nation permanently on a diet, the number of people suffering with mood disorders is on a permanent incline!

The 3-step process is used for all clients. The health concern will always be different. The goals will always be different. But the objective will always be the same; to lead a healthier lifestyle.
We will have a personal consultation to talk over your current lifestyle habits and mindset, highlighting any past or current changes and concerns. If you suffer with anxiety, stress or depression, the food you eat will play a contributing factor to the severity.
I may look to perform some blood sugar tests if I feel this may be a cause for concern. Once we have identified your habits and lifestyle patterns we then work through your goals and targets. Remember this is not a diet so goals and targets will be for a lifestyle change.
With all information in hand, I will then work on a tailored, personalised programme for you, with a full schedule of meal plans, recipes, 121 support if needed, worksheets, educational materials and so much more to get your new, healthy habits formed.
