Coaching

My six month coaching package includes:

  • Two 30 minute attendance or Skype coaching sessions each calendar month
  • Analysis of regular questionnaires
  • Email support during my work hours and in between scheduled sessions
  • Free access to my “VIP Area” library of resources
  • The opportunity to work through any of my online courses with me at no extra cost

Coaching sessions take place either over a Skype video call or at my home in North Somerset. These can be arranged Monday to Friday starting between 9.30am and 2.30pm. They are followed up by a detailed email within 48 hours; although this is usually produced on the same day.

My questionnaires are designed to help maintain focus on your goals and successes, as well as to quickly pinpoint where specific areas of challenge might crop up. These enable the actual coaching sessions to develop into relaxed and informal chats.

Unlike a typical medical appointment there is ample time for you to tell me what concerns you, what your food and lifestyle preferences are and what motivates you.

My clients are encouraged to check in with me via email on a weekly basis between appointments. I am also more than happy to answer questions, act as cheerleader and make extra suggestions via email in between scheduled contact as and when necessary.

This is about finding the methods that work for you, and that means working with your rhythms as they develop.

Coaching with me is not about following a strict, one-size-fits-all diet; it’s about finding the right balance of nutrition and the appropriate health practices for you personally, based on your genetic heritage, your historical health influences and your current symptoms.

We will look at seasonal living from an ancient Chinese perspective, you will gain an understanding of the endocrine, digestive and neurological systems; and you’ll be learning how to treat yourself with time-honoured naturopathic techniques and contemporary “bio-hacks”;

I will respect your unique sensory or executive dysfunction challenges when it comes to changing how, when and what you eat; and I will be constantly but gently encouraging you towards having a real appreciation for how incredible you, your body and your brain are!

Cost

When I email you your initial consultation questionnaire I will include an invoice for £360.00. This should be paid at least 48 hours in advance of your scheduled session and will cover you for a full six months of coaching and the additional benefits as outlined above.

Please note that I am happy to offer a free 20 minute skype chat before you commit to paying for a six month coaching package. If you would like to set this up please email me here…

“Working with Florence was a wonderful experience. Together we looked at food in a positive, creative and deeply nurturing way, exploring eating as part of a holistic whole body/mind experience.

Florence gave me a whole new outlook on food. For the first time in many years I saw food as something really enjoyable and not only life sustaining but life affirming.
I highly recommend working with Florence, she is so supportive and positive.”

Susan

“I came to Flo after many years of suffering from multiple health niggles, including insomnia, anxiety, sugar intolerance and fatigue. I have been impressed by her no-nonsense approach and her willingness to listen to the constraints of my lifestyle, helping me find simple practical solutions to finding good food in different scenarios.

My partner says I am like a different person when I am eating according to Flo’s recommendations. Her food ‘rules’ are easy, delicious and I never feel deprived, cravings or hungry as my system is getting what it needs. They take a little getting used to and you will be convinced that you cannot eat cream, butter and fat without putting on weight, but you can. Really. If this all sounds too good to be true, just give it a go for a couple of weeks. Seriously, it could change your life.”

Sarah

“Thanks to working with Flo for the past few months, I feel healthier, happier and fitter than ever before. Prior to meeting Flo I found most professionals in the field of health and nutrition rather intimidating but Flo’s down-to-earth and non-judgemental approach is very refreshing. Together we work on realistic goals which Flo breaks down into very achievable steps and as a result I have made some big changes to my health with relative ease. Thank you Flo for this new lease of life!”

Emma

“I came to Flo looking for solutions to a mixed bag of problems. I was intrigued about what affect my diet could be having on my mental health as well as my physical health, having struggled with both my weight and anxiety for years. I was a sugar and caffeine addict! Flo’s approach was very different to any kind of diet I’d tried before. It felt like this was a diet that fit around me, rather than me having to fit around it!

She listened to all my issues. The consultations themselves really helped me work out what I wanted from it all. Flo really worked with my own rhythms. There is no feeling of being forced to change drastically, just a gentle nudge in the right direction. She is always on hand if you’re having a wobble too! With no judgement, just laughter and support.

Since starting Flo’s plan I have felt much more energised. My plan wasn’t designed specifically around weight loss, but I’ve lost two stone! It’s improved my sleep, I’m finally waking up feeling refreshed instead of dragging myself out of bed each day.

Last year my anxiety was so bad at times that I was suffering from palpitations, this year is the first time I’ve felt like I’m finally on top of it all. Things that previously would have sent me reeling, now leave me unfazed. The difference has been noticed by everyone around me. Flo’s programme is not just about the food (although the food is great, and there were plenty of delicious treats!), it’s about the support to get back on track. Flo is so lovely and understanding. I can guarantee that you won’t regret taking that first step.”

Andy

“Florence has given me confidence to make changes to improve my health. Her approach is supportive and personalized, and she introduces new habits and foods gradually. I have found this really helpful for working towards long-term wellbeing. With her help, I am learning how to plan meals that are not only nutritious, but also realistic and achievable for me and my family, as well as becoming more mindful of other healthy practices I can include.

I initially contacted Florence to help me tackle a vitamin deficiency and low energy levels. Not only did she help me to resolve this, but I have also seen a major improvement in issues such as headaches, skin problems and digestion over our time working together, as well as returning to a weight that feels healthy for me.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Florence – in fact I have already passed her details on to several friends.”

Helen

“Thank you. Really. A huge thank you for your support over the last six months, in truth I guess I began working with you in the hope that I would maybe find some sort of acceptable ‘anti-inflammatory’ diet that might soothe my sore joints. What I got was the pleasure of spending time on Skype with somebody who always looked genuinely happy to see me, was interested in ‘all’ of me (not only my diet) and who has encouraged me in myriad ways over the last challenging few months.

Having always been a bit of sceptic I wasn’t sure how supplements could be worth the money and have often felt resistant to accepting that changes to my diet could really be beneficial for me. I was wrong. There’s no magic wand, I know that, but your reassuringly academic approach to how I was feeling and how tweaking my diet my help has resulted in my making it through the first semester of university in one piece.

My greatest fear was honestly that I simply did not have the stamina required to manage everything, but increasing my protein levels has undoubtedly been of great benefit. Your gentle, non-dictatorial approach has meant that I never felt any of the changes I’ve made have been forced upon me, yet I’ve wanted to try them since you’ve always had an excellent rationale as to why I might.”
