Health and Wellness Coaching
The Health and Wellness Coaching is aimed at promoting a holistic and healthy life-style. It will provide you with the tools to achieve your goals for your mental and physical wellness.

In some instances overweight or compulsive eating is often due to emotional problems, stress, anxiety, depression. You might be engaging in comfort eating. Health and Wellness Coaching helps you to get rid of negative emotions.
Overweight could be due to addiction to certain foods that promote weight gain. A common addiction is chocolates, or fattening snacks such as cakes and biscuits. Even if not an addiction, you might have a strong preference for certain foods which, if omitted from your diet or consumed in significantly lower amounts, could assist in your weight loss and maintainance thereof. Examples of such foods include bread, potatoes and rice. Health and Wellness Coaching effectively removes harmful food addictions.
Sometimes poor eating is habitual, and the result of a busy schedule. You might be grabbing a pie for lunch at work, or buying fattening and unhealthy fast-foods whilst on the run during the day, or after work because you will not have time to prepare a balanced meal when you get home. Health and Wellness Coaching will help you to adopt healthy eating habits.
Lack of physical exercise also contributes to weight gain if physical activity is disproportionate to excessive food consumption. Health and Wellness Coaching helps you balance your diet and physical exercise.
How excessive weight affects your life
Being overweight can have a negative effect on your self-esteem, self-image and self-confidence. This probably happens to you more in the social arena. Embarrassment about your appearance might be hindering you from attending social events. You probably find yourself finding excuses to turn down invitations. Excessive weight can also have serious health implications. These include exacerbating arthritis, diabetes and heart problems. Health and Wellness Coaching helps you prevent these negative health outcomes.
How I can help you
Health and Wellness Coaching can help you if your being overweight is a result of emotional eating, addiction to fattening foods, lack of physical exercise, or a combination of these causes.

Smoking tabacco is bad for your health any way you look at it. Nicotine is a habit forming, mood altering drug and a central nervous system stimulant. It makes you feel energised for a little while, and when that feeling subsides, you crave more. Many people smoke occasionally for relaxation. For other people smoking is an addiction, and they might be chain-smokers. Health and Wellness Coaching helps you prevent the many adverse effects of smoking.
How smoking affects your life
Some of the side-effects of smoking:
- Macular degeneration, cataracts and poor eye-sight
- Weakens sense of taste and smell
- Increases risk of respiratory infections, colds and flu
- Increases risk of lung, blood and cervical cancer
- Constricted blood vessels
- High cholesterol
- Tooth decay / stained teeth

You might be smoking for momentary relief in moments of high stress or anxiety. It would serve you better to remove the sources of the stress and anxiety permanently, or to install empowering habits to manage periodic stress and anxiety, than to rely on a cigarette for relief.
