Hi, I'm Tracey.
I believe small hinges swing big doors - in other words small changes can lead to huge transformations. I practice this belief every day working as a Holistic Health Coach.
So What does a Holistic Health Coach do?
A holistic health coach helps you look at your health from a big picture perspective. In today’s media saturated world we get hundreds of messages about our health, bodies, what to eat and how we should look and feel.
Most of these offer quick fixes that help you lose weight and feel motivated briefly... But the results are not sustainable and permanent.
A holistic Health coach helps you take into account your real life responsibilities, lifestyle and commitments so that you can shape a self-care plan that uniquely fits you.
Health is not a one-size-fits-all experience. There's a lot more to it then simply calories in calories out. If that worked, it would have by now. Together we can realign your body, mind and spirit using powerful daily habits to get to the heart of the solution.
So how did I get here?
I’ve rebuilt my body, mind, soul and energy from the ground up. Like an avid (read mad) scientist I have performed one experiment after another to improve my life in ways that are small but have yielded big results.
But it wasn’t always this way. 'Life' happened and I moved away from my passion for a 10 year period moving in a different direction, one that didn't really do it for me.
I woke up one day and I was 50 and thought things have got to change. I knew there was a better way to 'do' life. On the eve of my 50th birthday I had a strong desire to follow my gut wisdom and go back to what I was meant to be doing. Helping other people feel good in their own skin and live a healthier life, holistically.
I began by strengthening my body calling on my years of experience as a personal trainer. But I knew something was missing. I changed up my nutrition but I still wasn’t quite there. It was when I started to work on myself holistically, on all levels, mind, body, emotions and soul - then it all came together.
Which brings me to you.
Having experimented, experienced and learnt how to change life holistically, I now want to support you to do the same. We all deserve to feel good and to have the health, mindset and body we want.
I am here to help you put systems in place so you can achieve your goals and to support you in scaling any hurdles along the way. I’ve got your back so let’s get started.

My take on Coaching
I coach from the perspective that everyone is completely capable of shifting into the version of themselves they wish to. I hold that vision for my clients as the backdrop in each coaching session.
Coaching holistically means looking into our lifestyle, habits, behaviours, mindset and health as they connect the dots to what's really going on.
The way we do one thing in life, is the way we do everything in life.
From a health perspective, a coach from a 'non-diet' approach to weight and body image. I believe there comes a time when we realise that yo-yo dieting doesn't work.
There is a better, different and more self caring approach - that is - holistically, that takes into consideration the whole person. Holistic coaching is not a quick fix nor a one-size-fits-all. Holistic coaching, is specific and unique to you and through my experience with clients, I have found it to be effective and sustainable.
Change is an inside job.
As human beings we are made up of several layers - all of which are equally as important as the other.
The most important relationship you'll ever have is the one with self. I believe to get the changes you want, having support to delve into and see what's happening in this relationship is the key to change. The story we tell around our relationship with food, eating, body and mindset all comes from how we view ourselves.
I take a non-diet approach to health as there is much more to weight, body image, eating behaviour and overall health then just food and exercise alone.
The way to lasting change is about taking small steps consistently, and with that, comes resilience.
I believe we need to take into account all those parts of us as the backdrop to properly delve into our relationship to our health. From here we can facilitate the incorporation of a better, more aligned way of 'being'.
