My name is Claire Sambolino and I am a BANT / CNHC Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Health Coach, and I work with people to help support their diet and health goals.
Coaching offers a great framework for individuals to take charge of their lives, whether it be for career or health purposes. Identifying meaningful goals and working slowly and steadily towards them can be a rewarding process. Coaching helps explore personal motivating factors that can make a real difference to change and forms an integral part of my Nutritional services, as well as individual coaching sessions. The great thing about coaching is it can be delivered in person or via skype/ telephone and many people enjoy the flexibility of having these multiple points of contact.
When it comes to health goals I encourage clients to think long-term, and about their lifestyle as a whole. Loosing weight may be one aspect of a goal, but there may be other health drivers which are more motivating or meaningful; more energy, better food choices, stress management, less fatigue, or supporting symptoms. Understanding what motivates us is a really useful start to achieving our goals.

After completing my BSc Combined Hons in 1998, I spent the next 12 years working in corporate marketing , in multi-national Food manufacturers and communication agencies. During this time I was a sponsor of a corporate coaching scheme to help progress junior employees, which is what first ignited an interest in coaching. This interest developed, and since having my family I have retrained as an NLP practitioner and Coach. This complements my background in linguistics and communications.
During my time working in the food industry I developed a real passion for food. A long-time love of cooking led me to launch a small cookery business, which led me into the field of nutrition, and to retrain as a Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioner & Dietary Educator. I now marry these nutritional skills with coaching techniques to provide clients with an integrated approach to Health Coaching.
I offer coaching in English and Italian.
I offer a multi-media approach to coaching including face to face consultations, web (skype), telephone as well as maintaining regular contact by email or text.
I am currently based in Milan, Italy and predominantly offer skype and telephone coaching to UK and International clients (via the RingMD platform), with face to face consultations by arrangement. I am available to travel for business clients and coach directly on site at their business premises.
Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
I work with many international clients who are displaced, living abroad, balancing life and family away from home. More and more people are living and working abroad which can be a rewarding and positive experience. However learning a new language, integrating and raising a family in a foreign land can be a source of difficulty which coaching can help with.

- Package of 3 sessions (<60 mins) – £156
My philosophy on Health: My experience in nutrition and dietary education has brought me into contact with people with a range of health issues and lifestyle goals. Weight management is a growing concern in many children and adults and motivational coaching is an intrinsic part to weight loss success. Many clients want to change aspects of their lifestyle to incorporate more fitness, change eating habits and manage health concerns. I give regular talks and workshops to help educate about diet and approaches to healthy living and believe fully in the power of knowledge and positive mental attitude. Coaching is a fundamental part of change for many people as understanding what motivates us is as important as understanding how to make physical and dietary changes to support our health. Empowering clients with this knowledge and self belief has shown to be an effective approach to helping them manage their health and make lasting changes.
