About Me

Hi. I’m Rachael – mother of two and nutrition coach in training. I specialise in children’s diet for learning and behaviour. (My son is 2e: highly gifted with ADHD and dysgraphia, and my daughter has dyslexia). I also love helping mums feel super again; particularly with energy to keep up with their kids and mental health.

I am based in Invercargill, but my coaching services are available via video calling across New Zealand.

I gained a Certificate of Nutrition from Cadence Health in 2016 and plan to complete their Advanced Certificate of Nutrition & Health Coaching in 2020.

Nutrition is an evolving area and I continue to stay up-to-date with the latest research. I share some of this through my blog.

I am proud to have USANA Health Sciences as my product partner.

I found Rachael very helpful when going through a tough time trying to sort out nutrition and general motivation. She was patient, knew her products really well and gave some real and interesting suggestions regarding meals and foods and organising the pantry. All of which have worked well. She has also put me in touch with other experts which also worked well. The sessions we had were affordable and I appreciated the time.

What a wonderful friendly person Rachael is. As a family we were heavy and I had a child who was extremely busy. Rachael talked me through foods that would help us all. The most beneficial thing for me was going around my local supermarket and learning best buys for our family. Because I learn visually this was great. I could remember packaging. Whenever I forgot Rachael was very accommodating when I sent her pics from the supermarket. Rachael’s knowledge and willingness to help has been outstanding…. Thanks heaps.

When the body positivity movement – with it’s acceptance of all bodies, no matter the form, size or appearance – peaked last year, it made me nervous. I had … Continue reading Health At Every Size

Feeding our Kids’ Brains

With a title like that, don’t misunderstand me. I’m not saying academic intelligence is everything; I would actually go as far as saying emotional intelligence is more important. Yes our children use their brains for learning English and Math and for understanding the world around us, but they also use it for everyday cognition (thinking) … Continue reading Feeding our Kids’ Brains

Getting The Most From Your Fruit and Vegetables

A few years ago I became aware of how the produce we eat this century is so very, VERY different from the previous. Due to modern agriculture, important nutrients are depleted – even missing completely – from the soils we now grow our grains, fruit and vegetables in. Add to that artificial ripening and the … Continue reading Getting The Most From Your Fruit and Vegetables
