My interest in Health and Fitness started from a very early age and has always been a major focus in my life. I was always into sports as a child and I have always been curious how the mind and body work in harmony together.
After a long successful career as a Sales and Marketing Director for a group of Mercedes-Benz dealerships, I decided that the work /life balance was out of sync and decided that this chapter of my life was coming to a natural conclusion. Fuelled both by my daughter and mother having challenging debilitating diseases in later life, I decided that having a career that helped people get more out of life, physically and mentally, was where my heart lay and left the corporate industry of steel behind.
I am a strong believer that positive mental attitude, combined with a healthy diet and exercise, can not only prolong life but give you the opportunity to live life to the full. ‘Quality not just Quantity’.
The choice, as always, lies with the individual and taking responsibility for their actions but I want to assist in helping them make that journey.
The thing I love most about what I do is the impact it is having on my clients well being.
Recently, I have been working with a client that had been suffering IBS systems and mood swings due to high sugar intake. This was having an impact in all areas of his life. By conducting an intolerance test and discovering wheat and sesame seed intolerance, he refrained from eating them and the IBS symptoms disappeared. In addition, as a self confessed chocoholic, he had been convinced that he needed sugar to cope with the energy for a very physical job.
Working with CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) techniques and challenging his belief systems, as well as working on his nutritional intake, he reduced his sugar level to minimal and has become a more balanced happier individual. In the latest consultation I had with him, he stated” I am not a chocoholic anymore and I feel happier, calmer and have more energy than ever before.” Using a combination of CBT, Nutritional advice and Allergy Testing as required seems to be a winning combination and I am continuing to learn and develop my skills even further.
I trained with the School of Natural Health Sciences and qualified to earn Dip after my name in the subjects of Holistic Nutrition, Allergy Testing and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and, I am continuing my studies on Advanced Nutrition, Mindfulness, Herbalism, and Life Coaching to enhance my skill set further.
My public liability insurance is with Towergate Insurance and I am a member of the ICHM (International College of Holistic Medicine).
I have recently set up http://www.ame4change.co.uk as my business which is based in Fareham, Hampshire and the surrounding areas.
I am passionate about making a difference to people’s lives, both mentally and physically, so they can be freed from limiting beliefs and physical ailments. I am enjoying every minute of my new role in life and in business.
I would like to thank S.N.H.S. for their advice and excellent courses they provide and will continue to increase my knowledge to assist more people who benefit from the services I can provide, hopefully well into my 90’s (which is the new 60 so they tell me!)
