HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

Are you struggling with emotional eating, binge-restrict cycles, or feeling stressed about your eating decisions? 

I am here to help you find your ideal body weight WITHOUT resorting to hunger or calorie restricted plans.

What to expect

INITIAL CONSULTATIONS

In your initial consultation, I spend time getting to know you and going over your pre-screen form in more detail. We discuss your goals, diet history, current situation, and go over any blood work (if available). Using all the information gathered, I’ll help you to map out the key steps that need to be taken to help you achieve your goals, explaining to you exactly WHY you need to make the changes and how it will help you.

At the end of the consultation, I spend time writing up a personalised management plan for you, based on what we discussed in your appointment which you will receive via email within 48hrs of the consultation.

Consultations are in person from an Auckland based clinic. For those of you who are outside of Auckland I offer consultations via Skype, Facetime or phone call.

Caroline Thompson

After surgery in November 2015, I tore a muscle in my hip from overdoing things post surgery. I had no idea it would take so long to heal and as a result of not being able to do the usual levels of exercise I was accustomed to, I packed on 8kgs. I was feeling pretty miserable as my husband and I were also trying to conceive and just weren’t getting anywhere. My physiotherapist recommended seeing a nutritionist and Kimberley was able to squeeze me in which I was so grateful for. The tips and the tailor-made plan she set me up with saw some amazing results. Not only did I steadily lose 8kgs over a couple of months, but my husband and I also conceived 7 weeks after starting the new eating regime. I felt amazing, with so much energy and my clothes felt comfortable again. Kimberley has been a great support as I’ve transitioned into pregnancy and I highly recommend her.

India Sebinik

In 2012 I had two surgeries for an abscess on my tailbone, after which I developed adrenal/chronic fatigue from August onward. I had absolutely no energy to attend school and quickly gained weight from being inactive for so long. I was 77kg at my first visit with Kimberley, and by the 3rd month I had lost 10kgs total – without any extra exercise! I also lost the discomfort after eating meals that didn’t suit me, but more importantly for me, I gained a new energy, confidence and an interest in a healthy lifestyle that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Without Kimberley’s guidance I would never have been able to have achieved so much this year but now I have my life back as well as a healthy relationship with food. I truly couldn’t have done it without her help! Thank you!

Kimberley has literally changed my life, she has shown me how to enjoy food again. I have lost weight in the past but this was always at the expense of muscle mass, with Kimberley this is not the case, in fact I have increased muscle. My energy levels are the best they have ever been and I am currently the fittest I have ever been, this is a direct result of the plan Kimberley has in place for me. With Kimberley there is no ‘you must eat this!’ it is more a case of Kimberley knowing what I like and coagulating this with her own knowledge and expertise. I now eat plates full of colour, my grocery bill is greatly reduced and I no longer have diet anger. I don’t see this as a diet as Kimberley has given me a lifestyle change. I would recommend Kimberley to anyone who wants to live healthier

Kimberley is amazing. She makes you feel SO comfortable – she isn’t into weighing and measuring and fat testing if you’re not comfortable with it – but if you want that – she will do it. But she will also always get to understand where your head is at, works with your mindset around food which is so important and I feel I have made huge progress with that so far since working with her. Cannot recommend her enough! You rock Kimberley!
