Meet Patricia

 

I love food, now. It wasn't always that way. Growing up I was a challenge for my parents as I was such a picky eater. So much so that I remember my mum taking me to see our family doctor who told my mum that if she was worried to give me some chocolate!! Hopefully that wouldn't happen now but it is interesting to note how food can shape who we are and our attitudes to it.

Food is much more than calories, it is information for our mind and body, can alter our DNA, change our mood and ultimately make us who we are.

My appetite has improved and I still love chocolate, occasionally. 

So, allow me, as your Anam Cara,  to guide you on your food journey.

The driving  force behind ANAM CARA NUTRITION is a deep desire to help individuals achieve their long-term diet and lifestyle goals.

 

Do you want to lose that middle-age spread?

Are you tired of tossing and turning all night?

Are you running out of energy mid-afternoon?

Do you have concerns about 'brain fog' and memory?

Is chronic unexplained pain affecting your quality of life?

Are you overwhelmed with social media influencers and don't know who or what to believe with diet and lifestyle?

Do you know what you should be doing but can't seem to get motivated?

Are you sick of bloating, acid reflux and other digestive issues?

Why work with me?

I feel your frustrations and pain.

My own lived experiences,(post-infectious IBS, bereavement, divorce, two Frozen Shoulders, chronic pelvic pain and a diagnosis of Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome, challenging menopause), together with my professional training as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Certified Health and Wellness Coach and Yoga Teacher training, allows me the skills and expertise to support you to make lasting lifestyle change. 

Are you ready to thrive and not just survive?

Nutritional Therapy is not a 'one -size fits all' approach to health and wellbeing and it will not work overnight. It takes time, commitment and motivation from both you and me, working together for your best outcome. Our initial consultation will involve taking a detailed medical history, analysis of your present health, establishing goals and what you want to achieve. Being a Certified Health and Wellness Coach, as well as a Nutritionist means that I am qualified to use positive psychology tools to help you fine tune your goals and create steps to get there. We can take an intuitive approach and create a bespoke package to suit your needs.
