Hi, I'm Laura


My role is to offer you support, strategies and accountability to know exactly what to do every day to both look, and more importantly feel, your absolute best.

Without draining your time we'll take it step-by-step to create the health and happiness that you're looking for.

A Board Certified Functional Health Coach

Supporting you to Choose Well

Unlock Your Full Potential


Spoiler: When you invest in upgrading your health other aspects of your life naturally change too. For example, I've seen midlife women switch to their dream career, buy their forever house, publish books and have better relationships with their children and/or partner.

  • The clue is in the name - menoPAUSE.

    What do you want to do less of?

  • And what do you want to start doing more often?

  • Putting on weight at middle age is not compulsory

  • Learn how your body is working NOW. What worked for you 20 years ago no longer applies.

  • Stop self-sabotaging by managing your mindset

Understand

What makes you tick? What puts a great big smile on your face? What do you do for yourself? How can you put yourself to the top of your to-do list?.


Discover

The insight gained from understanding will be the basis for figuring out what's behind your decision making process. We uncover those subconscious choices and upgrade them

Establish

This is the fun part. How can we get these new habits into your life? Creating a plan of micro actions takes you to the next stage to build the healthy life that you deserve.

Grow


You've pushed past the edges of your comfort zone and the foundations are in place. What does your future look like?

About Laura


I'm a Mum to three teenagers. I retrained as a Functional Health Coach after managing my own autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's) into remission, and supporting my son to regrow his hair after experiencing Alopecia Totalis. I'm a Board Certified Functional Health Coach (A-CFHC and NBC-HWC) living back in the UK after many years overseas. I love working with women who have tried 'everything' to lose weight or balance their hormones. I was coaching for a not-for-profit organisation when I realised that so many women were having similar issues at midlife. Every day women were telling me that they were taking care of all of the people in their lives (apart from themselves). By Friday they'd be exhausted with no energy and relying on prosecco to help them through the weekend. During 2022 I undertook additional training for working with women going through perimenopause and menopause.

What's my Mission?

To work with you to get your confidence back. We might start with physical health for example weight loss or hair growth. Or your mental health might be the place to begin. The great thing about coaching is that I meet you where you are right now and support you to get where you want to be.

What my clients are saying...


“...within three weeks I am on a completely different path. It was a life changing experience and one I am in complete and utter awe of. Thank you Laura, you have a gift that will help many people."

“As we discussed my personal learning approach and style, Laura shared resources with me that proved to be of great benefit and interest to me.

After a few sessions with Laura I was much clearer on what I wanted and how to get there."


“In the last year I have lost excess weight, improved my sleep, reduced anxiety and increased my physical activity and Laura's encouragement and empathy were key in my success."


“Laura made it easy to understand where I'd been going wrong. I wasted so much time before, I didn't realise that it would be this simple.”


“My husband and kids want to thank you! He's got his wife back and I know that I'm a better Mom. Everyone going through perimenopause should have this kind of support.”


“Laura really knows how to motivate, and made me feel comfortable when sharing my personal goals/obstacles. My biggest success whilst working with Laura has been learning about the importance of routine with regards to eating at regular intervals to maintain energy and blood sugar levels, and creating a schedule to suit my lifestyle and body clock."
