Hi, I'm Susie Alderson
Nutritional and Lifestyle Coaching for Long Term Wellbeing
Help and support to change your body and your health
I’m a registered Nutrition, Reflexology and Wellbeing coach based in Berkhamsted. I work mainly with women who are so busy juggling families, careers and a hundred other daily tasks that their own health and wellbeing tends to be at the bottom of their To Do list.
The pace of life these days can be frantic, and with so many other demands on our time it can be too easy to fall into the habit of grabbing whatever is quickest and easiest when it comes to meal times. But consistently making poor food choices can take its toll on us. Bad nutrition can lead to low self-esteem, feeling exhausted, and being out of shape.
Why work with me
I can show you a new world where good nutrition becomes not just a shopping choice, but a way of life. I have a friendly and realistic approach, getting to know you in order to ensure you get the best health programme to meet your needs and lifestyle.
I initially trained as a Nutritional Therapist and Reflexologist. I’ve had problems with arthritis for many years and after realising that my symptoms were triggered by stress I decided to take additional qualifications as a Personal Trainer and NLP Practitioner. The knowledge I gained has been invaluable to my health. My arthritis is no longer a problem, I’m exercising well and I’m fitter than I’ve been for years.
I’ve also learned that good health isn’t about taking pills: it’s about looking at your food and lifestyle and creating the right habits which can have life-changing effects. I’ve found over the years of working with clients that eating habits and the meaning given to food as a fixer is just as important as the actual food eaten. So I have a particular interest in helping break emotional eating habits, where you consciously or subconsciously reach for a high sugar snack to help you deal with negative emotions.
