Meet our team
I truly believe that a strong foundation of nutrition through food is the key to maintaining health and balance within the body. I’m very passionate about simplifying what healthy eating looks like with each individual, myth busting the “one diet fits all approach” and inspiring young families to pop a few more veggies on their plate.
Tip: Focus on getting five serves of fresh veggies on your plate every day. When you focus on filling your plate with the good stuff, you crowd out less healthy foods for more healthful ones.
I am passionate about and proud to promote the importance of living a healthy, well balanced lifestyle. I love exercise and being active because not only does it make you feel great physically, it also positively impacts your emotional and mental health, being a very underutilised antidepressant. I find joy in sharing this passion and educating those around me.
Tip: Our body is constantly working hard to keep you alive and function optimally. Its time you show your body some love in return. Find an activity that you enjoy and change your mindset from “I have to/should exercise today”, to “I want to move my body in a way it wants and deserves to be moved”.
Nina is an accredited practicing dietitian who believes in a life of balance. Her passion is challenging her clients’ unhelpful food beliefs and helping them lead a healthy lifestyle that nourishes both their mental and physical health. She strives to give all her clients realistic and practical health advice and teach them the skills they need to set them up for life (not just for a few weeks).
Tip: Aim to work WITH your habits rather than fighting against them. For example, if you’re forever trying (and failing) to resist the after-work pantry rummage, schedule a healthy after-work snack to tide you over to dinner time instead. You will need much less willpower and motivation that way!
I love that by applying a few minor changes to our focus, it can have major positive implications to our wellbeing. I enjoy assisting people to discover their inner resources and have these breakthroughs.
Tip: Wake up each day noticing your ‘state’. Stand up tall and breathe deeply; change negative focus to something that makes you feel better; and use words wisely - they have power.
I love my food! By using food as a tool, I can help those around me to achieve and live a healthier lifestyle, without getting caught up in food trends and expensive (often ineffective & unmanageable) diets.
Tip: Track your daily steps. By increasing incidental exercise, (taking the stairs, parking your car further away, lunchtime stroll) with an aim of 10000 steps per day, you can improve overall health and reduce the risk of disease with minimal change to your daily routine. It's easier than you think!
I really believe in mindful eating and moving away from restrictions and dieting to ensure a healthy and positive relationship with food. My goal is to support people with achievable recommendations regarding nutritious eating, movement, stress management and sleep hygiene so they are empowered to live their best life, with some fun along the way!
Tip: Start the day on a positive note. Whether it is 5-10 minutes of time to do meditation or 10 burpees to get the heart pumping or thinking of three things you are grateful for in the shower. It’s a great way to put you in a good mood for the rest of the day.
I've always been passionate about living my best and healthiest life. As a mother of two, I feel lucky to have learned the value of living our only life to the fullest. I want to help others feel as good as I do every day, waking up in good health with physical and mental harmony which empowers me to enjoy life more and be happier.
Tip: 100% believe in the power of positivity. Starting the day with a smile and being grateful for the blessings of the day empowers us to be a force to be reckoned with. What we do and how we feel has the power to inspire and influence those around us and has almost a healing power that I think to be underappreciated in modern society.
With so many conflicting messages on nutrition and health in the media, it can be hard to know what advice to follow. I’m passionate about empowering and supporting individuals to make healthy and sustainable changes to their diet and lifestyle based on scientific evidence, in order to be their healthiest self!
Tip: Make positive changes to your eating habits by taking time to stop and think if you eat when you’re actually hungry or when you’re bored, stressed or feeling down? This can help you to be more in tune with your hunger and appetite, and take steps towards eating more mindfully.
I am passionate about inspiring and empowering others to make changes to improve their overall health and wellbeing. Whether that is by nourishing their bodies with delicious healthy foods, getting a better sleep, managing their stress levels more effectively or making time for mindfulness.
Tip: My number one tip is to set achievable goals that you will be able to stick to in the long term. When we try to make multiple changes in our lives all at the same time it can be overwhelming and hard to stick to. Try setting 1-2 achievable goals and then slowly develop them over time.
Exercise is so easily undertaken with countless health benefits, yet so underutilised! I love biomechanics, so educating people on the safest, most correct way to move is what I do best!
Tip: Enjoyment is the biggest factor in adhering to an exercise program. Make sure you pick something you like or bring a friend to add a little fun!
I am passionate about health as it allows me to understand my body’s mechanisms and functions, as well as the positive psychological aspects of living a healthy lifestyle. I believe being aware of your physical and psychological wellbeing on a daily basis is the first step to achieving your goals.
Tip: Reflecting on the positive and negative aspects at the end of the day can give us a better perspective of how we want to be as individuals. Just asking yourself questions like ‘how can I approach things differently?’ can really go a long way.
I love to coach others in finding a way to transform. Exercise has transformed my life in so many ways, and my desire is to help others achieve similar transformations, physically and personally.
As Dr Robert Butler said in the 80’s, “If exercise could be packed into a pill, it would be the single most widely prescribed and beneficial medicine.”
Tip: Keep it simple.
I'm an Exercise Physiologist with over 10 years’ experience in the health and wellness industry. I have a passion for improving health, wellness, and quality of life to help individuals achieve their health goals in a comfortable, supportive environment. I believe in developing a trusting and therapeutic relationship with my clients to empower them to set and achieve keystone habits to create a happy and healthy life.
Tip: Be 100% honest and concise about your health goals. It is difficult to achieve an ambiguous goal. Sit with yourself and really reflect on the health goal that is important to you.
Don’t just take our word for it that the Health Hubs are great!
