weightloss for health

‘I came to Helene with a goal to lose weight and to improve my digestion problems. She put together a program for me that focused on healthy eating, exercise and positive thinking. During the course of the program my energy levels were very high and I felt wonderful emotionally. I found the program very easy to follow and I achieved results quickly. I started losing weight immediately, my digestive problems cleared up and my energy levels were very high. I think the most important thing is that I learned healthy eating patterns for life, which I still follow today many months after I completed the program. Helene was a great source of support, encouragement and inspiration throughout the whole program and she applied her broad knowledge to help me reach my goals.’ – HE, Business Analyst

My approach

Helene treats each patient as an individual, focusing on their unique physiology (and physical state of health), as well as their preferences, personalities, likes and dislikes. She uses a variety of well researched and effective programs, as well as creating individual treatment plans. She teaches safe and effective strategies to help her clients to lose weight but more importantly, she shares healthy eating habits that can be followed for life. This helps her clients to avoid the rebound weight gain that can occur when people finish a diet and return to their old lifestyle habits. A nutritious diet can also help people to feel healthier and to have increased energy and improved mental function.
