Training women to regain themselves wholly, so through training and nutrition but supporting them with mental challenges along route.

Been in the industry now for 4 years training women to regain themselves wholly, so through training and nutrition but supporting them with mental challenges along route. Previous to this I worked as a veterinary nurse, studying through the royal college of veterinary surgeons.

After suffering domestic abuse for many years in Scotland, I consoled myself through food and alcohol (to numb the pain mentally). This “lifestyle” through want of a better word screwed my once very fit person up. I put on 110 lbs, had 2 suicide attempts which were very close to killing me, and then I decided I needed to take back control or I would die.

I started to train and eat mindfully. My ethos is always to adopt a flexible approach to eating, so I never strayed doff track and the weight came off. And I started to look good, feel, good, and all that comes with it. After a few down episodes with depression, I decided I wanted to inspire other women that they could do what I did, and so I built my business, initially with Beyond The Weight, and now with Exercise For Your Mind.

I have been lucky to meet the likes of Prof Steve Peters, author of Chimp Paradox, after contacting him (or his team) via email, and worked with fitness professionals all over the globe spreading positive messages to people.

I adore writing, which was why I started Memoir of a Wiggly Girl (as I like to wiggle too), and my favourite thing ever is to spend time with my amazing partner Mike Samuels.
