I often get asked this question and sometimes it can be a little hard to explain.
I’m a Nutrition Coach. I’m a GAPS Practitioner. I’m a Bioindividual Nutrition Practitioner. I’m a MINDD Practitioner. But what does all that mean for you?
Recently I thought that a better way to describe myself was as an Autism Family Mentor because just positioning myself as someone who helps you with food isn’t strictly true. When I work with families to make dietary changes to improve their children’s health, sleep and behaviour we go WAY beyond food. We delve headfirst into other areas that you need to address for best results – healthy homes, complementary products and therapies, mindset, advocacy at school and kindy, emotional support, community and setting you up to make these changes work in the real world and for the long term.
That’s why I reasoned that the title “mentor” made more sense for me. A mentor is defined as “an experienced and trusted advisor”, a title I have earned helping hundreds of families over the years.
Since I’ve been in the autism world for over 12 years and my own family has overcome the challenges that go along with having an autistic child, it’s natural that my experiences (both professional and personal) form a large part of my value to my clients.
But I don’t want to be in my client’s lives long term. I want to teach you how to do this for your own family. I want to empower you by giving you access to all the tools in my toolbox that transformed my family’s life.
Since there is no “one size fits all” for diet or for support, I offer several mentoring options so you can access my services at the level that suits you.
Firstly, my recent book, High Thrive Me! provides you with all the tips and guidance you need to begin helping your kids live happier, healthier lives. Click here for more details about the book.
At the next level, you can embark upon the 9 week Thriving NOW! e-learning program – the companion program to the book. Here you will get videos, guides, lists and recipes served to you in bite size chunks that you can implement in your time in your own home. It also includes a 1 on 1 consultation with me.

The most intense and supportive mentoring experience I offer is a program where I’m with you for 12 weeks. And without doubt this is where the real magic happens. You receive individualised tools and resources and have me at your disposal for the entire time and the transformation we can bring about in this way is life changing. This sort of program is not right for everyone so if it’s something you’re interested in, let’s have a chat to see if and how I may be able to help you. You can click here to book a time in my diary for us to have a chat.
The more I can empower you, the more you can change your own family. And then you can pass on your knowledge to others and inspire them to change. That’s a real ripple effect. Let’s go make some waves!
