Behind the Scenes

“As a chef l see the importance in designing meals that taste great but are also easy to prepare. Not everyone wants to spend hours in the kitchen and honestly who has the time. My recipes are quick, easy and taste great, you will not be disappointed.”

Behind the Scenes

My story is a simple one…. overweight, like many I tried everything and just got frustrated (and fatter)! As a qualified Chef, I had the knowledge of food preparation, but needed more of an understanding of the effects of foods on the body and mind. To achieve a better understanding, I completed an Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Medicine.

On completion, I obtained a new found awareness and passion, a different perspective on food but still struggled with the notion being skinny meant l was healthy but also people would like me more. I was fighting the constant photos of thin women, the relentless advertising telling me l should be a size 10 and the unyielding message l was fat because l was a size 16.

Yes, there are hundreds of online programs which offer you dietary plans and recipes, but very few factors in the much needed one to one support. Some coaches reached out via email, but I desired face to face contact, someone who would have that honest conversation with me, someone who could empathise, someone who understood my struggle.

This was when Flourish Nutrition & Health was born.

Nutrition and diet websites are not a new concept, with almost one million websites online, no wonder people get confused and don’t know where to turn for help. When I developed Flourish, I envisaged something different. I want my clients to feel they are my only priority and I want them to know I genuinely want to help them achieve their goals.

To facilitate this, programs are personalised to the individual, a holistic approach taking into account all aspects of your life.

Let’s work together to determine what works for your body, your mind and wellbeing, in order for you to be your best and Flourish!
