Business Related Questions

Which part of Yorkshire is your business based? 

I live in Dewsbury


Tell us a little bit about your business - What makes your business a little different from others?

I help and support women with hormone imbalances during perimenopause, menopause and fertility issues.  I have been through perimenopause myself and can relate to all the symptoms.  During my perimenopause journey, I lost everything overnight, my home, husband and business and a few years later, I nearly lost my life in a car accident.  I have spent the last 10+ years rebuilding my life, my mindset, my diet to heal my body.  A hormone imbalance can be related to diet, mindset, lifestyle or exercise.  I work with all these 4 areas as I find that there is more than just your diet that can be affecting a woman’s hormone health.


What’s your favourite ever product or service that you currently sell or have sold?

My 30 day class is very popular as I will be there to support women during the 30 days and draw up a plan specific to their needs to get the results they would like to have.  


How are you pivoting or adapting your business during this crazy Covid virus time?

I am lucky as I haven’t had to adapt my business during covid.  I have always conducted my teachings and training or coaching online using Skype or Whatsapp or Zoom. 


Why did you choose this business to run or establish? 

I have always been interested in health and wellbeing and how your body works.  It was only until I went through perimenopause myself that I decided this was where I wanted to put most of my focus and what I was most passionate about.


What is your one product or service you would recommend for either a pregnant woman, newborn mom, or for babies, toddlers, or young children? 

I would recommend women in pregnancy and after the birth of baby to have a 1to1 for 30 days with me to create a plan around diet and lifestyle for a healthy pregnancy and recovery after pregnancy.



Personally Related


Who or what inspires you?

I am passionate about women’s health and I am inspired by listening to how other women have dealt with betrayal, hardship, finding their true self again etc.  It is never too late to change your life and live life to the full and be happy or strive to be the best version of yourself and to go after your dream life.


What TV shows can make you binge on all day long? 

I don’t have a TV show that I like at the moment.  I could watch films such as Pretty Woman, Notebook, The Proposal, Sleepless in Seattle over and over.


What is your favourite ‘me-time’ or ‘self-care’ activity? 

I love to do yoga, meditate and journal 


What is one thing you love about living in Yorkshire? 

I love walking and there are lots of good walks to do around Yorkshire.


What advice can you give to a new mom?

Don’t rush into getting back into fitness and losing the baby weight.  Enjoy your baby and rest when needed.  Take some supplements to nourish thyroid and adrenal glands.

Make some time every day just for yourself to help reduce stress levels and to  eat to promote good health and energy levels.
