Does any of this sound familiar?
- You are obsessed with your weight and appearance. Weight loss and dieting consume you.
- You are emotional, teary, moody, anxious, are accused of being too sensitive and don't know why.
- You are a cardio, group exercise addict fuelled by your obsession to be skinny.
- Gym sessions are punishment for what you have eaten.
- You aspire to be a catwalk or fitness model and constantly look enviously at other women's bodies.
- You count calories and have no knowledge or care factor on nutritional value of food.
- You weigh yourself everyday and the number affects your mood and how you feel about yourself and your life.
- You binge eat behind closed doors and beat yourself up continuously over food you have eaten.
- You are single, desperate for a man and believe once you achieve the perfect body you will find him.
- You love your man but are terrified of him cheating or worse losing him if you don't achieve the perfect body and get your shit together.
- You have achieved your ideal weight but you are still single, unhappy, disappointed, depressed even. Isn't being skinny the ticket to dreams coming true?
- You have achieved your ideal weight but you are still unhappy with life, still uncertain about your marriage, still cant locate that lost loving feeling for your partner.
- Every new wrinkle that appears is so depressing; getting older is scary so you lie about your age and do all you can to fight the process.
- You just know you will be happier when you lose the weight, get the nose job, botox, laser skin treatment, liposuction, face lift, etc.
- You avoid looking at yourself naked in the mirror and prefer the lights out when being intimate with your partner.
- You avoid being intimate with your partner altogether due to shame of your body. You just don't feel like having sex anymore.
- You just turned 30, 35, 40, 45 and not only do you not have the body but the man, house, kids, degree, career. OMG! I am not "doing" life in the right order at the right age!
- You have achieved life in the right order by the right age but you still don't feel happy or fulfilled.
I totally get it!! I know what you are thinking after seeing my photos but trust me just because I look like I do does not mean I have had a perfect life. Why do we think that having the body and looks is the answer to our misery? I have spent the majority of my life suffering debilitating depression, hating myself, hating my life, abusing my body and clinging to my appearance for dear life.
The low down on life
Where are these rules written that we are all supposed to be a size 6..? Look like models? Have flawless skin? Or that life is supposed to be done in a certain order by a certain age and our appearance affects this outcome..? Why do we feel so much pressure as women to conform to a certain ideal? We get one life and we seem to spend it obsessed with every morsel that goes in our mouth, every slight movement on the scales and constantly compare ourselves to other women. Why do we women sacrifice ourselves and our dreams for the sake of comparisonitis? And in the process we lose contact with the true essence of who we are and wonder why we are stressed, depressed, unhappy, unhealthy, overweight, tired.. Our one life turns out to be bloody hard as we don't look the way we want and we wake up at 60 and think WTF??!! Where did my life go??!!
Why are we not taught in school..
I have a real issue with the school curriculum. I don't know about you but I have not used algebra or trigonometry since I left school! And while the basics of learning how to read and write will always be important isn't it also important to equip us with the life skills to deal with heartache, death, divorce, eating disorders..? how to be a good parent, how to nourish and respect our body and how to cultivate a healthy relationship with ourselves and why it is so important? You have to ask yourself with depression, anxiety and eating disorders rampart in society today perhaps if we were taught these invaluable life skills at an early age then maybe, just maybe.. we could prevent these conditions? And it is funny how these conditions are not socially acceptable like a physical illness is and those that suffer often do so in silence (like I did) compounding the issue. But even if you don't suffer with one of these official labels too many of us struggle with our body and life.
Why should you work with me?
My life is littered with heartache, emotional abuse, over eating, under eating, addictions, depression and anxiety; largely due to attaching my self worth to my body and appearance. I was obsessed (and I do mean obsessed..) with my weight and how I looked and I had no clue how this obsession was fuelling my depression or what the core of my issues were despite 25 years of therapy.
I was forced into weightlifting through injury and my reaction to losing cardio exercise was that of an addict. I was beside myself that I had to discontinue the very thing that was keeping me skinny. Once I got over the shock I realised that weightlifting is what fitness models do so I found another avenue to fuel my dependence on my weight and appearance AND I get to show it off on stage??!! This is the answer to my life long misery! I went down this road for vanity and I wound up stumbling across the answers that I had searched a lifetime for. Please read my full reflection of my journey here.
Where ever you are now in your life in relation to your body I have probably been there and I have probably tried all the things you have tried too! I have now dedicated my life to ensuring women don't suffer like I have; to spread my inspiration and support far and wide, to share all my secrets of how I overcame my demons but more importantly I share how I have achieved my rock solid mindset to ensure you can too! The very mindset that saw me achieve the perfect female form and keep it!
I coach from the heart, from the healing place of my own suffering and from my life's commitment to happiness through premium health. I would be truly honoured to support and inspire you to be the best YOU!
Empowerment is what we will achieve.
This is an educational journey of self-discovery and the coolest thing about knowing all this stuff is not just how great you are going to feel about yourself and your body but the ripple effect it has on all those around you. You will not only be able to nourish and support your loved ones better but you will inspire and motivate everyone in your life with your radiance and vitality. Life is meant to be lived with passion and purpose; let’s find that in you!
Why hiring a coach will change your life.
Ever tried to chat to your doctor about your weight or emotional concerns? Doctors aren't even trained in nutrition and lets face it, what are we going to achieve in a 15 min consult? You are either going to walk out with a prescription or a referral to another doctor who is going to give you a prescription... Drugs are not the answer! Trust me; I have tried them all. I turned to the medical fraternity for help for 25 years and never got anywhere, in fact I got worse. And then we have nutritionists and dieticians who only focus on the food aspect of your health. But I will let you in on a little secret; you may think you have an issue with food but it is so NOT just about food... A coach is all about moving you forward in life on all levels; physically, emotionally and spiritually. There is not one successful person in the world who does not have one or more coaches or mentors guiding them. I myself have four currently!
When was the last time you got the support and advice you deserve for your wellbeing?
I used to think getting support or asking for help was a sign of weakness. More of an old school approach! But I want to tell you that I wouldn’t be where I am today without my mentors, coaches, healers and teachers. They have all played a massive part in my journey and I am so grateful I reached out to them. Change is not easy on your own so now it is your turn to get the support you deserve!
Your personalized program will radically improve your health, body, happiness and wellbeing. It will transform your mind, body and spirit and unleash your amazing self that is hiding inside. The truth is that your gorgeousness has been within you all along but as life goes by and things happen we forget. Together, we will help you remember! And we will explore concerns specific to you, your body and your life and discover the tools and actions you need for a lifetime of health, happiness and balance. And if you want to take it a step further and compete I will be beside you every step of the way to guide you through the mindful that is a bodybuilding!
So… how would you like to rock with me?
In my ever growing experience with coaching, observing and interacting with women I have discovered three different scenarios of where lifes journey has tripped us up. So I have designed three different packages to support you no matter where you find yourself on your journey. If you are not sure where you are at no problem! That is what our initial discovery session is all about. We can establish together which package will work best for you.
I have also created a special package just for the fitness fanatic or aspiring fitness model. No matter what has fuelled you to take on a fitness challenge it is not an easy and requires incredible discipline and confidence. The emotional aspect of fitness is too often not addressed or even understood by the coaches dealing with the physical side of achieving fitness supremacy. I would love to support you to ensure you approach your fitness journey in a healthy way, achieve your bucket list fitness goal or get on stage rockin that self-confidence outfit because that is what wins competitions!

Maybe you are desperately single and feel you will never find a man with all this extra weight. Or maybe you have a great partner but lack confidence in the bedroom due to feeling fat.

You have made the big decision to compete in your first bodybuilding competition or run your first marathon. You want to achieve a fitness challenge to cherish in your senior years, tick off a bucket list and feel that reward and satisfaction that will come from overcoming your fears. But posing on stage is giving you nightmares! Or running even a half marathon seems out of reach. You have engaged with coaches to tend to the physical aspects but you know you lack the confidence and discipline. Maybe you have nailed the training and nutrition and have even been to a few posing classes but you feel self-conscious and scared as hell! How are you going to pull this off? You know you can achieve this physically but it is your mindset, confidence and discipline that needs support.
This was me.. I had committed to competing but with the momentum I had created with my coaches and trainers I just couldn't pull out. How was I going to find the inner strength to get on stage sober??!! I was fighting depression and trying so hard to hide my emotional issues. No matter where you are on the emotional scale I will share with you all my tips and tricks that it took for me to get my broken ass on stage. And what ultimately cured my depression! And gave me my rock solid fitness mindset that sees me still with my bikini body at 50! If I can do it you can too! And I will be with you every step of the way.
