It's great to see you!
You are in the right place if you are looking for nutrition coaching with a difference and I am so glad you found me!
I want to support you in nourishing your body and mind so that you can spend your time doing things that you love and that make you happy.
I offer intuitive eating coaching, baby-led weaning courses and consultations, and family feeding support, both online and face-to-face. I use a weight-inclusive anti-diet approach in all my consultations to promote Intuitive Eating and the Health at Every Size® (HAES) message. This means I will work with you on rejecting diet culture messages, making peace with food and getting to know what your body needs and what makes you feel great, rather than giving you diet rules and food plans.
I believe that to be engaged you must feel included and valued for who you are, your perspectives and thoughts need to be respected and your lived experience must be honoured. My commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity and experience informs my work and allows you to be YOU.
If you want to know what Intuitive Eating is all about, why I feel that baby-led weaning is the most fabulous way to introduce babies to solid foods, and how giving your child responsibility for their own eating can make mealtimes stress-free, head over to my FAQs!
And for anything I haven't answered on this site you can always get in touch with me or check out my social media accounts for regular posts on my views about nutrition, feeding and looking after yourself.
"I attended Ela's workshop on baby-led weaning, with an idea that I may try this way of weaning, and I'm so pleased I did! The workshop answered all concerns I had, particularly about what foods my son Jack could or couldn't have and risks associated with weaning like choking..
I'd thouroughly recommend the workshop if you're thinking about weaning. It gave me the confidence to try baby-led weaning and Jack and I are enjoying the experience."
"Thank you so much for agreeing to come and visit our Year 2 children. Your presentation was incredibly informative and really helped to support us in teaching the children about the importance of eating a well-balanced diet and leading an active lifestyle.
Your delivery was really fun and the rapport you had with the children ensured that you held their attention for the entire session . You introduced them to some key vocabulary related to the topic and we loved the resources that you left us to use in follow-up sessions."

"Really pleased I attended - I have a lot more confidence to go through baby-led weaning... All the information on BLW and videos were great, and one-to-one experience was very helpful and informative."
