Registered Nutritional Therapist & Health Coach specialising in weight loss, fixing wonky hormones + fertility

Hello, I'm Ailsa...

I specialise in helping women lose weight (especially that annoying can’t-seem-to-shift-it-no-matter-what-I-try kind of weight), make peace with their bodies and finally feel at home in the skin they’re in. I also work closely with fertility specialists Simply Fertility, where I coach couples wanting to get pregnant, either naturally or through IVF or other assisted cycles. 

Although my professional photo makes me look like a teenager thanks to Photoshop and avocados, I’m actually in my late forties. My mission when working with clients is that everyone gets to enjoy the journey. After all, working with a nutritionist is not a punishment, it is your access to a new possibility.  And no one goes on a 'diet'. How cool is that?

The truth is, there's no magic pill. You’ve got to deal with your chemistry (your symptoms and what’s going on inside), your lifestyle, and how you feel about who you are. When you work on all these elements together, the results can be truly astonishing.

I’ve spent years in clinic working with clients just like you who have discovered that losing weight is NOT just about eating less until you can stand it no longer. I help people fix their relationship with food and eat the ‘right’ things for them – and this is absolutely critical after 40 because the rules suddenly get very different. That’s the ‘nutritional therapy’ part.

What is unique about my approach is I also coach and motivate my clients to follow their plan, keeping them accountable for what they’re up to. When you work with me, it’s YOUR plan not mine. I just help you have a breakthrough in what matters to you most.

 

Why I'm the best coach for you

My family tell me I've always been a bit over-interested (their words) in what goes in and what comes out. Fortunately, as a Registered Nutritional Therapist & Health Coach it's now my job to be interested in that kind of stuff.

I'd been a journalist forever. I did all those cliched media things – partying, drinking, smoking as well as the less well-trodden path of alternately eating junk then starving myself – oblivious to what it was doing to my health. 

Slightly miraculously as it turned out, I had a baby and everything changed – but not for the right reasons. Having babies left me with a lot of weight to shift, a handful of hormone imbalances and an autoimmune condition. I have the T-shirt for struggling to get pregnant, losing a child, losing myself, and losing a marriage, as well as the usual ups and downs of life.

Somewhere in the middle of that, there were a few REALLY bad days, which turned out not to be such a dreadful thing because they delivered the wake up call that encouraged me to make a lifestyle upgrade. My journey back to wellness led me to retrain as a Nutritional Therapist at the highly-regarded Institute for Optimal Nutrition, where I graduated with distinction. Shortly after, I trained as Health Coach and now help my clients put all the latest science of what to eat with the motivation to actually do it.  

I'm also a mum of three, so I know how hard it is to eat well while trying to juggle a busy life. My approach is practical, direct and supportive. I am committed to you transforming your health and having a victory over the past. You just need to commit to making yourself a priority. 

I’m a member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), registered with the Complementary & Healthcare Council (CNHC), and am one of a select number of Foresight practitioners, working with couples to enhance their fertility naturally. I am additionally a zest4life coach and mentor, and train other nutritionists to share their brilliance.
