Yes You! It's about time

Welcome

Hi, I’m Jenny – Welcome to Mind Your Health!

I’m a Personal Coach, certified in Life and Health Coaching, and Personal Training. I want you to be the best, healthiest version of yourself. I’ve been in the health and wellness arena for over 20 years and while there seems to be more and more websites, diets, gyms, quick fixes, detoxes and supplements to cure our mental and physical ills, there is an ever-increasing rate of stress, anxiety, depression and physical health issues in our population.

It’s time to cut the bells and whistles and begin to ‘mind your health’

Jenny

Jenny has worked with individuals from all walks of life and is able to cater her approach to specific needs. What matters the most is that Jenny really cares about the overall health and wellbeing of people she works with.

She has a passion for helping others to believe in themselves so that they are able to find and reach their true potential.

What we appreciate most is that Jenny 'walks the talk' and leads by example.

Her work ethic, intent and execution is always on point, she has a way with people across all ages, sexes and ethnicities which is crucial in truly understanding individuals to deliver lessons in a manner which resonates.

Her knowledge of athlete-based nutrition plans helped me as an athlete, competing in a weight specific sport and then later assisting me with students and clients I coached and trained in the fitness industry.

Jenny’s knowledge is extremely extensive and her ability to communicate to a vast audience, was extremely successful with many of my weight loss programmes...

On a personal level, Jenny is warm, easy to talk to, and really supportive while still holding you accountable to your goals. I would recommend her services to anyone who wants results!

    My Story

    Let’s start with the ‘I am’ bits…

    I am a personal coach, certified life and health coach, a personal trainer, a wife, mum, daughter, sister, and friend. Most of my early working life was as a graphic designer, something I still enjoy doing for friends, family, and myself. One of my favourite things, when I get the chance, is to spend time in the forest. I grew up near the Redwoods in Rotorua and the feel of the forest is my absolute happy place.

    I also love to exercise, something I never thought I would ever say (anyone that has known me since my youthful days of drinking and smoking will attest to this). I particularly enjoy boxing for fitness, weight training, and walking/running at my local beach.

    The role food plays in mental as well as physical health is a subject I’m passionate about, and my continued education in this area is something I enjoy and value investing my time in. I love food, but dislike cooking, you won’t see stylised pics of food coming from my kitchen, but I may share pics and recipes from others that are much happier in that arena.

    I have spent many years finding what works for me and I now see, and have experienced, what good food and moving my body does for my own wellbeing. I look forward to working with you to find your winning formula.


    How did I come to coaching?

    I have been in and around the world of mental health, fitness, and nutrition for over 20 years. Here’s where it started…

    As with many women, after having babies I struggled with changes in both my mental and physical health. I have had to, and still do, deal pro-actively with my own mental health, and had post-natal depression after both of my pregnancies. The effects of far too many Tim Tams in my efforts to feel better had me thinking that there must be a better way!

    Based on my journey from there to here, and with all the advice (both helpful and not), and education along the way, I have found what works for me and learned how to find out together what can work for you too.

    My first experience of coaching began as a Weight Watchers leader at local meetings, and while I loved the work and the results I saw, I struggled with the corporatisation of wellness and wanted to work in a more personal way. After a training session at my gym I was approached to help setup a new charity aimed at reducing the alarming rates of obesity in our country, in particular with teens and their families. For the last 10 years I have helped create and facilitate workshops and coached countless families through the Steps for Life Foundation. In my private practice I work with individuals and groups, and I look forward to working with you too!

    My experience and training have given me the tools to help you:
