The Life Lighter mission is to help people, especially women, to be healthier

– not just in the physical, but also in soul (thoughts, emotions and will), and in spirit; and to grow and improve in their relationships with themselves, food and others.

It brings great to joy to see people transform from being overwhelmed and burdened to experience a lighter nourished life with optimal wellbeing.

My experience

I have many years of experience as clinical dietitian working in hospitals and communities (mostly in the UK), and in private practice.

My special interest in nutrition is focused on nutrigenomics, digestive health, weight “management” from a weight neutral, non-diet perspective, and auto-immune disorders.

As coach my specialties include life coaching and health/ wellness coaching.

As mentor my focus are towards Christian women of all ages, who have a desire to grow in their ability to apply Biblical principles in their relationships and to live more Christ-like lives.
