Hiya, I’m Kaysha!
A registered nutritionist, Pilates Instructor and committed health coach dedicated to helping you to increase your performance whilst building a positive relationship with food and your body.
A born and raised Londoner, with a passion for food and fitness, I feel honoured to commit my life’s work to building a coaching practice that frees people from restriction and abandon destructive food and exercise behaviours.
Through one-to-one consultations, online group coaching and my FREE monthly newsletters, I help people like you improve their health, tackle anxiety and increase their energy levels without the need for restrictive diets and unsustainable exercise regimes.
One of the things I’m often asked is “How did you get into this work?”
I have always been passionate about sports and food. I played football from my early teens into my late-20s. I started running aged 18 and enjoy running mid-distance races to this very day. I can’t imagine a life where I’m not active. It’s my passion and I want to do all that I can to look after my body so that it continues to move the best that it possibly can…For the rest of my life!
I studied at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition for 4 years in order to achieve my Nutritional Therapy Diploma. In 2015, I decided to further develop my skill set by training with BASI Pilates UK.
In 2010 I went into private nutritional therapy practice whilst working in my corporate job full-time. I quickly realised that many of the people sat in front of me, were looking for a quick fix and basically wanted to be put on yet another diet. Being young and eager to help, I obliged. Supplying recipes and meal plans with a list of foods to reduce or avoid and foods to focus on. It worked…In the short term. Overtime people would feel embarrassed to come to tell me that they had “fallen off the wagon” and that they needed to restart.
It sounded very much like my own relationship with food. I suffered from energy and blood sugar swings and I was constantly hungry. I started to practice mindfulness. After a lot of trial and occasionally retreating back to the diet culture, I noticed that eating “normally” reduced my food thoughts, increased my energy and sorted out my constipation. Yup, I was pooping every day, my skin looked healthy and my nails were no longer peely and flaky.
I used my own experience of my own journey and the issues that I saw week after week in my clinic to develop a method that transforms the way we feel about food. Food doesn’t have to be scary. Food is more than just fuel. We use food to celebrate, socialise, show love, explore and more. We can use food to nourish and energise us without becoming obsessive and judgemental about it.
The ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach doesn’t work when it comes to individual bodies and lifestyles.I work on the basis that each person is unique. Consultations are tailored to your needs, tastes, level of motivation and lifestyle.
I hope that in one way or another, I can help you discover what authentic health looks like for you. More importantly, you’ll discover what you can achieve when you’re working at full power, full of energy, greater mental capacity and self-esteem.
I believe that life is short enough, so why choose to half live it.
