My journey to wellness

Today I am a digestive wellness and sustainable weight loss expert but, like many women, my journey to wellness has been a long and often painful one. Throughout my twenties, I struggled with disordered eating and tried out every diet and fad imaginable in an effort to try and achieve the unrealistically “perfect” bodies that I saw represented in the media, all of which left me with an unhealthy relationship to food and suffering from debilitating digestive issues.

I started experiencing digestive issues when I was at university, and am very familiar with the agony of those inexplicable cramps, the frustration of mysterious bloating, the fear that comes with feeling like you are not in control of your body and that other uncomfortable feeling in the pit of your stomach - that your doctor is not taking you or your symptoms seriously.

I realised that our bodies are designed to be nourished from the inside out and, for me, true health is about not only looking great but feeling great, living longer and having a great quality of life.


Lasting weight loss is not just about what you are giving up; it's about what you're gaining - a profound sense of well-being, a boost in confidence, a surplus of energy, and an unshakable trust in your body. It's not about obsessing over the numbers on the scale or meticulously counting every calorie you’ve consumed or avoided throughout the day.


I motivate my clients by keeping them accountable but also working on their mindset, whether they’re losing weight to make life easier on their joints, to fit comfortably back into cherished clothes, to be able to keep up with their kids, or for other health reasons. 


I studied for three years to qualify as a Nutritional Therapist and went on to also qualify as a Health Coach because I am committed to helping women reclaim their wellbeing by helping them discover the root cause of their often complex health problems and delivering life-changing and long-lasting results.


I founded The Wellness Detective to offer compassionate and holistic support and guidance to women ready to reclaim their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
