rebecca's Unique Approach
Why a Health Coach?
So...some history. My passion for health and wellness started way back in Australia when I was 21 years old. I went to school to become a personal trainer & nutritionist, going on to then training many women to feel amazing and did this for a few years.
I took a break from training full-time to training part time and went to university and acquired a degree in communications. I thought at the time it would be useful to have a backup if my fitness career did not work out.
After graduating from university, I moved to America for a little bit where I carried on personal training, learning new skills and working more with women and pregnant women. This did not last long as I needed to make more money, so I decided to apply for a corporate job.
I then spent the next few years in that world, working as a Business Development Manager travelling all over the world, constantly.
It was a high pressure corporate job in a very demanding industry. Coupled with being a present mum & wife, I was always running on empty and stressed to the max, my work/ life balance was none existent and unhappiness settled in very quickly, and led to me having a few health problems.
I was burnt out and lost my spark. I was putting all of my energy into my work and did not have much for anything else, I wasn't filling my own cup. I was too busy trying to succeed in my job.
Why a Health Coach?
At the same time, I lost precious members of my family suddenly from cancer, this intensified my stress levels, which led to me having zero energy, very bad aches and pains in my body, I became an emotional eater, so I would turn to food for a pick me up the problem was, I would always reach for the foods that were NOT good for me, I knew what was good for me, I just didn’t find satisfaction in those at that time.
I suddenly noticed I was much heavier, especially in my stomach. I'd look down at the rolls on my stomach and wondered how on earth does my husband find this attractive? So not only was I an emotional eater, I became very critical and was not kind to myself..
So, Instead of that beaming smile, radiant complexion, and creative spark I used to feel, I looked dull, lackluster, tired, moody and I felt like crap most of the time. This was definitely NOT the best life.
I knew something had to change. That's when I discovered Health Coaching which changed everything. At first I was skeptical, like, that approach will never work for me. But then I followed through in a way I never have before.
Within a few weeks, my stored fat in my belly melted off my body. I bounced energetically out of bed every morning, had more clarity than I had in years, and got my sexy back. But most important, I began to love myself. No more negative self-talk.
That’s when I decided I wanted to help other women through their own health journey and become a health coach.
I enrolled in a health coaching school and a year later I become a certified health coach and doing so changed my life! It was the best choice I have ever made for myself, both in regards to my career and my own personal health.
During my training I identified that I was still holding onto old emotional baggage and learned how to work through it.
I discovered which foods and activities were right for my body, which gave me an abundance of energy, I learned more about where my stress was coming from and how to control it rather than letting it control me. I cultivated the importance of self-care, loving myself and how to do so without sacrificing my family, which has helped me become an even better wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.
It educated me on how to identify my unhealthy habits and replace them with healthy ones, and it has given me an incredible foundation on how to coach others and transform their health.
After graduating from my health coaching school I opened my online coaching business The Blissful Space.
I developed a system called The Total Body Transformation to teach people how to experience more enjoyment of food, their body and their life.
What makes my programme unique is that we focus on what you GET to have, rather than what you don't. Suffering to heal doesn’t make sense. When I work with a client, I want to inspire you to reclaim your health in a way that is sustainable, natural and fun.
My clients tell me I'm part cheerleader, part tough love coach. Support and accountability. Two ingredients proven to make all the difference in the world between staying stuck and breaking out of a rut.
