personal coaching

“Syns/calorie counting are now thankfully, not a part of my life. I try to eat colourful and nutritious food, stop when I am full and above all have really learnt to taste the food that I am eating.  Thank you Lori, your support and guidance has been invaluable.”  Charlotte

My ethos is very strongly that the way to lasting weight loss and management is not through ‘dieting’.  I believe in a natural, nutritious and mindful approach to eating – eating the best food we can, in the right portion sizes to satisfy us.    I also believe strongly in learning to trust our physical (hunger) and not emotional cues.  I am anti the counting of calories or points and the weighing of food also, as I believe that these can lead to an unhealthy obsession and disordered eating.

Ideally you will take up the option of a nutritional assessment where a scientific analysis of what and how much you are eating allow us to really help you reach optimum health and promote weight loss.  After the initial food & mood diary to make this possible,  I will never ask you to count calories or track your food.

 

The sessions then develop into supporting these changes into a comfortable relationship with food.  I encourage natural weight loss and lasting change through education of which foods are more nutritiously valuable and which less so.  We will also explore different ways of cooking and preparing.

The big thing which will help you is that I have been to the darkest places of a disordered relationship with food, which means I can relate to your issues and help you break free.
I have over 15 years’ experience as a business coach so I know the coaching process, I am NLP qualified (neuro-linguistic-programming) as well as having a long experience of coaching in behavioural psychology.  I am a qualified consultant in nutrition and behavioural change and I ‘get’ people and how they relate to food and eating.

So what next?
