The short of it. . .
Hi I’m Kath. I’m a nutritionist providing services ranging from Personalised face-to-face consultations to online nutrition & lifestyle education. I’m a lover of books, coffee & of course food!
I believe a personalised, flexibile approach to gaining physical & mental well-being is important to achieving sustainable lifestyle changes that support both these aspects of health.
The long of it. . .
Despite a genetic predisposition to weight gain & a history of yoyo dieting, I managed to keep within a healthy weight range in my 20s & was very active at the time. That was until I fell pregnant & my immune system ravaged my thryroid (Hashimotos hypothyroidism) and I now find it very easy to gain weight & difficult to lose it.
I also have depression & anxiety & tend to want to comfort eat when things go south. This of course leads to a ruthless cycle of depression leading to binge eating leading to weight gain leading to depression & so on & so forth.
In 2016 I lost a close friend to suicide, which lead to a family member confessing to suicidal ideation. My whole world fell apart & so did I. I spiralled out of control & gained weight like crazy. It’s been a long journey but with the help of friends, family & an amazing GP I’m finally on top of it & back in control of my life.
Throughout this whole experience I have learned that both my physical and mental health is so much better when I’m eating properly & exercising. Unfortunately, an awful lot of people just don’t know how to achieve health through good diet & lifestyle.
The knowledge I learned throughout my BA in psychology, & my Masters in Human Nutrition has been utterly invaluable to my ability to ensure I am really taking care of myself. I have started flexibly nourished because I am passionate about sharing my knowledge & educating others so that they have all the skills they need to create the healthy life they want.
If you need help, I’m here to give it to you.
