What is Health Coaching?

What is Health Coaching?

Still relatively new but becoming more and more common, Health Coaching is just that, Coaching clients on all aspects of their Health.
Just like athletes have a coach to be at the very top of their game, more and more people are investing in their health and well being by working with a Health Coach. And just like sports coaches specialise in their area of expertise, Swimming, javelin etc, it is the same for Health Coaches, some specialise in healthy weight loss, others in hormone health and autoimmune disease,  or Women's Wellness to name but a few.

List or not to list…...

I have just spent what feels like a very  productive hour writing lists and then acting on them!

This is something I very rarely do preferring to, Be free and go with the flow!! Writing lists just takes me into ALL the things I think I should be doing or never get round to doing so I slip into a bubble of avoidance, ifI can't see it, it's not there kind of avoidance. And why write a list that i'll forget to look at or not feel like acting upon in the future??? 

However something feels different today, I can't quite put my finger on it but writing a blog post for my new website is something that has been floating around in my energy field for a while ( see I have lists they just clog up my energy field and mind waiting to manifest). 

Writing on a physical piece of paper seems to bring the transitory, un- tangible idea into this present moment and here I sit achieving one of the many ideas that floats around in my head, here I am writing a Blog post!! I didn't know that this was the subject I'd be talking to you about today and guess what? there's freedom and flow in the way that I'm writing to you…something that has been such a procrastination for me…… I have a belief that everything happens exactly when and how it's supposed to, if it's supposed to happen at all, and no amount of pushing, forcing, beating yourself up and will power will make it so until it is ready to be so. If only my ego shared that belief as well ;-)

 Tosha Silver the Author of Outrageous Openness. Letting the Divine take the lead talks in her book about "allowing right action to arise".

I never fully understood what that would feel like and if I'd recognise 'right action' if indeed it did arise. Well here it is free flowing-ish and feeling amazing!! All initiated by the motivation to write myself a list (I prefer to title it " What I would like to achieve" rather than a 'To DO' list), get the busy scattered musings out of my head and onto some paper to be witnessed. Sometimes the action can be small but the movement it creates can be vast. 

Yes I will write lists again and may even look at and act on the other things on my list, it really is a great tool for getting things out of your head and into real life so to speak. I will however wait for 'right action' to motivate me into doing so… I can already feel the seeds of fresh ideas for another post starting to fill my mind… i may just write them down ;-)

Turmeric tea with a twist!

Spring may well be here, but that hasn't stopped all the nasty bugs flying around the last few days and I've managed to catch my self a bit of a cold. When I'm feeling a bit low and in need of an immunity boost I always turn to anti-inflammatory hero turmeric to cheer me up. Here's my recipe for the best turmeric tea with plenty of lemon to zap away a cold and boost your immunity.


2 cups of water

1 inch of fresh root ginger

2 teaspoons of ground turmeric

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon of lemongrass tea leaves

6 black peppercorns

Juice of 1 lemon

Teaspoon of raw honey to taste (optional)

A pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt (or rock salt)


  • Bring the water to boil in a small saucepan
  • Add all the ingredients apart from the tea leaves and allow to simmer for around 10 minutes. Be sure not to boil it at this stage.
  • Add the leaves for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and strain through a sieve in to a teapot or jar.
  • Serve and enjoy 


On the power of quiet moments

Yesterday on the Mountain, today Resting with a view!!! Sometimes the best medicine is to stop, close your eyes and sleep If that's what your body is asking for. 
They're all zooming around amongst spectacular views and a part of me is up there with them!!! 🎿 I'm learning however to live my life honoring my own needs in response to the cue's of my body and today this is my view and my body is thanking me for it!!! 🙏😴🌱
