Who am I and what can I do for you?
My name is Claire and I'm a qualified life coach and personal trainer, specialising in helping people put an end to yo-yo dieting and lose weight for good! I have a unique approach that will make you think differently about weight loss and weight control, and piece together the right solution for you to be able to lose weight and keep it off for good. I understand how difficult it is when you're busy and juggling work and family and struggle to put yourself first. My approach is tailored specifically to YOU, according to what YOU need to help you to get the most out of your life. I know it works because I did it myself! Visit my website www.youronelife.co.uk to read my blog and my story to find out more.
When it comes to which method to follow to lose weight or control weight, I am completely neutral and will support any choice of programme you might choose to follow, as long as it is safe for you do to so, as my approach works alongside almost all conventional, well-known diet plans. I can also help you to choose which approach is best suited to you.
If you don't want to follow one of the well-known programmes, I can also support you with my own habit-based approach to nutrition and exercise. Here there are no rigid plans to follow, no products to buy, no meal plans to prepare, and no forbidden foods. Everything I do is tailored to you. Some people find those approaches really helpful and others don't and that's ok - the key is finding the right programme for you.
Whatever approach you choose to follow, I will help you to achieve a healthy mindset towards food, activity and weight control, so you WILL succeed no matter what is going on around you. Your weight does not exist in a vacuum, and my approach takes a holistic view of your life and empowers you to take control. You will be amazed at how other areas of your life will also benefit from this.
Losing weight and bringing it permanently under your control can truly TRANSFORM your life and help to safeguard your future health! It's a very worrying time right now, and there is no doubt that being overweight greatly increases the risk of complications from COVID-19. Can you afford to get seriously ill? Can your family afford for you to get seriously ill? The time is NOW to do something about it.
Your Weight Loss Jigsaw Puzzle
We are all unique. I help you to work out why you have not succeeded in the past, and help you put all the pieces together to solve your very own unique jigsaw puzzle. Once it's complete you WILL lose weight and you WILL keep it off. For good! FOREVER!
With me there is no trying to follow rigid plans that don't fit with YOUR life. The key to success in my approach is helping you work out what's important to you, what works for you and what you enjoy, what your strengths are and what changes you can make that are therefore sustainable for YOUR life. And walking beside you as you make those changes, cheering you on and holding you accountable. Celebrating your successes with you. And there will be many along the way. You will be amazed at what you can achieve with the right attitude, support and tools.
How much is a lifetime of being a healthy weight worth to you?
We think nothing of spending money on gadgets, makeup or handbags we don't use, shoes and clothes we don't wear, gym memberships and other subscriptions that we don't use, so why not spend it instead on investing in yourself with coaching? You'll be glad that you did, and you will definitely use it as I will hold you to account. There's a reason why airline cabin crew tell you in the safety briefing to put your own oxygen mask on before helping others! Think about it!
Seeking coaching is NOT an admission of failure! It's recognition that you deserve more out of your life!
Getting some outside help to unlock your potential and keep you accountable is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your loved ones, as if you are able to overcome the things that are holding you back, you will be more successful generally in everything that you do. Everyone should be able to access coaching. Even coaches - yes I have a coach! ?
Coaching helps you get sustainable results! Yes, even by working with you online! It doesn't matter where you are!
I take a holistic approach, looking at your whole life. Often weight gain or an inability to lose it is due to other things going on, and by helping you make changes in those areas, suddenly the weight loss becomes possible. Equally losing the weight can enhance other areas of your life.
Tackling what we eat is the biggest influence in weight management so even if you can't be very active due to health conditions or a disability, being overweight is not inevitable. I can show you how.
I also offer Personal Training to complement your coaching sessions!
Alongside my coaching I also offer personal training. In addition to the standard Personal Training qualification I also have a Level 3 Personal Training Exercise Referral Diploma to work with people with a variety of health conditions including depression, arthritis or high blood pressure and a Level 4 Personal Training Certificate to support those struggling with obesity and/or diabetes, so I have the specialist skills and knowledge to help you if any of this applies to you.
(Note: I require GP approval to provide personal training to people with medical conditions)
You don't have to take up running or go to the gym if you don't want to, and being active doesn't have to mean formal structured exercise. I can help you find things you like doing that will help you to be more generally active, and therefore will stick to.
I offer standalone personal training but provide discounted sessions to clients who are also receiving coaching services from me. See my services page for more details.
