Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
The symptoms of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome vary from person to person. I work with each of my clients to review their symptoms and explore what’s happening inside their bodies. I know that it’s important to understand the condition if you want to improve your health and control your symptoms.
Together, in 1 on 1 consultations, I can help you to identify ways to control your PCOS. I draw on a combination of diet, wellness, stress reduction and other techniques.
If you’ve been diagnosed with PCOS, you may have been advised to lose weight. If your weight gain is hormonal, you may have found it hard to control your weight through your diet. Certain foods can reduce PCOS while others may aggravate the condition. Eating to be the healthiest that you can be is the best solution.
Contact me today to book your first 1 on 1 consultation. We can work together to manage your condition and explore the opportunities to improve your health.

Weight Management and emotional eating
You may feel like food is dominating your life and you need to take back control. Or perhaps you’re tired of constantly planning the next diet. Maybe you struggle with your weight but you can’t commit to making a change. Or perhaps you just long to enjoy a family meal without putting all your focus into what’s on your plate.
Everyone has stress in their lives – but what should you do if it starts taking over? Stress can have a terrible impact on our relationships, our happiness and our health. Even if you’re aware of how stress makes you feel mentally; you may not be aware of the physical impact it’s having on your body.
Combat stress by changing the way that you think.The Renew Programme has been developed based on the findings of ground-breaking research conducted by Dr Caroline Leaf, Neuroscientist, a leading Neurologist in the field of Neuroplasticity. Science has proven that the way that we think is one of the biggest contributors to stress. Stress is a major contributor to many of our health problems today.
