"When I contacted Desiree I was in the worst possible headspace of my life! I had so much self-hatred towards myself. I was overweight, had no self-love or self-worth and I wanted to crawl into a hole and never get out! When we started our journey together, she asked me for 3 goals, which were to lose weight, feel better about myself and be happy. What I loved about Desiree was her empathy and genuine understanding of how I felt. Her approach was never to eat healthy and exercise (I hate when people tell me to do this!), her approach was to understand my behaviours and thoughts around these things. Turns out she’s more than a health coach, she’s a life coach, counsellor and downright beautiful woman! She taught me new habits instead of trying to fix old habits (which meant my old habits disappeared without me having to try) and she taught me to love myself and to stand proud in my self-worth. She has helped with correcting my many stomach problems and she has helped me to fall in love with life again! My journey isn’t over, turns out it was never about the weight loss for me (all though that’s been a bonus). It’s about my journey with health, fitness and overall wellbeing. I have changed so many aspects of my life for the better that I could never look back.If you want a tangible change in your life, something you can measure and see results with, speak to Desiree. She gets it. Actually gets it. Whatever it is you are going through in your life. She has been through her own ups and downs to be able to connect on an emotional and spiritual level and help you through your battles. I have already recommended family and they’ve also signed up with Desiree! Why wouldn’t they? She’s the best!"

My top three goals upon starting the 3-month program were; To release myself from sugar addictions, to control my digestion, take control of my life. My coach was able to help me work toward these goals by; Teaching me a new way of thinking, that does just consist of helping me lose weight but the overall balance of my whole life, what I want out of it, nurturing myself. I now know the universe has my back, and where ever I am in my life I am where I should be. I love this quote. I love the calm and concise way in which Des describes everyday things, that would normally make me fearful. Embrace the fear and roll with it. I quit my job and I’m going traveling! And have signed up to a nutrition course which can open plenty of doors. I have got control of my eating, my sugar cravings, my alcohol addiction, beginning to sort out my digestion, and know only I can control what I put in my mouth. There are other things that make me happy other than junk food. Like releasing myself from a toxic job/people. There is so much I have received from Des, the best being that to change the way you think, can literally change your life. That every facet of your life affects who you are, not just what you eat. I still have changes to make but I have made so many positive ones since meeting her. Numerous people have said I have a glow / light about me now, and how they love to hang with me because I’m so positive."
