About the Coach

What I do for a living?

We are not here to diet... we're here to build healthy nutritional habits!

I prefer to define my line of work in more interpersonal and human terms: to me, any patient walking through my office door is a person who has decided for themselves that they trully want to improve their live, either for medical or personal reasons. You should see me more as guide and companion on your own path towards a better life: your personal coach in the “sport” of building and maintaining healthy eating and exercise habits, that will help you achieve your final goal, as well as improve your overall quality of life.

It always seems impossible until it is done

Why is coaching important?

Our doctor and our dieticial can halp anyone of us better understand what we need to change in our nutrition as well as our lifestyle. Turning those realisations into actual changes is where most people encounter difficulty. Our nutritional coach helps us move from «wanting to be healthy» to «becoming healthy» by offering both nutritional instructions as well as psychological support and guidance during this transition, so that the patient is motivated to complete the necessary changes that will lead them to an improved level of quality of life as well as health. Nutritional coaching bridges the gap between wanting to change and trully changing, in a way that brings results and lasts.
