Through one-on-one coaching we create your personalized road map to feeling comfortable in your body again and putting yourself back in the driver’s seat of life.
Do you ever feel alone with your IBS?
Were you told that IBS is “just something you have to learn to live with“?
Are you sick of getting that 5-month pregnant bloated belly and feeling uncomfortable in your clothing?
Have you tried to figure out what is triggering your symptoms, but it feels like it’s constantly changing?
Hey, l’m Heather…
8 years ago I would have answered yes to all the above.
Feeling uncomfortable in my body due to IBS was a weekly, if not daily, occurrence.
I would experience extreme bloating, abdominal cramps & pain, gas, and… well, I’ll leave the rest up to your imagination.
I would have weeks where I was stuck in a negative spiral, resolved that this was just going to be my life now.
Every time I shared a meal with friends or family, I was avoiding eating some sort of food. But it was always changing and I was dubbed the “difficult one”.
I was so frustrated with always feeling this way.
I was determined that something needed to change.
Now everything is different
Most people, including my past self, focus solely on foods to try to manage their IBS.
While foods can indeed trigger symptoms such as bloating and disruptive bowel issues, it’s often not the main culprit and there are many other factors at play.
Stress management and daily routines and habits are also to be considered when dealing with IBS.
Without looking at the full range of IBS factors, it will continue to control your life.
It’s essential you understand that IBS can be complex, and the treatment can look different for everyone.
It’s important you take your entire lifestyle into consideration when treating your IBS.
This doesn’t necessarily mean a complete overhaul!
In fact, it is often minor tweaks and adjustments that make the biggest difference in your IBS management!

Why private coaching?
IBS can be very complex and the management of it is different for everyone.
This is why working together one-on-one, looking at your personal situation, and building your action plan from there is going to be the most effective approach.
You can stop spending countless hours googling in desperation and trying every possible diet suggested on social media. I’m here to help you save time and focus on the strategies that will actually make a difference.
Accountability is a huge part of success and this is built right into my one-on-one coaching. We’ll make sure you stay on track and I’ll be there to support you no matter what comes up.
It’s time to stop simply surviving.

Imagine having results like this
I want to introduce you to Maria.
She came to me exhausted, struggling with brain fog and headaches, and complaining of a sensitive stomach and gut.
She was tired of living with regular “crises” that had her running to the bathroom and kept her up all night.
Maria suspected certain foods were causing her symptoms, but just wasn’t able to figure out the complex puzzle.
She ate a pretty healthy diet, but often didn’t have control over her meals due to her work and home situation.
Together we built a plan that focused on improving her nutrition and creating meal time habits that worked for her unique situation.
We included self-care and exercise goals, and discussed how she could improve her routines to achieve better sleep.
At our one-month check-in, Maria was ecstatic:
- Her digestion was improving
- She didn’t have any cramps or “crises” even though she ate foods that use to trigger them
- She even noticed a decrease in the number and intensity of her headaches
You can expect…
Personalized, one-on-one experience based on your needs and preferences
Step-by-step approach that allows you to experience and see real progress without overwhelm and anxiety
Plan to help you build positive new habits that make working towards your goals even easier

Nefeli reduced her bloating and improved her tolerance to dairy…
“I had been experiencing constant energy dives throughout the day, and I was looking for a nutrition-based approach to improve my situation. With Heather’s help, I started feeling more energized but also worked on other digestive issues: I had always had a sensitive gut, and the way Heather adapted my diet improved my tolerance to dairy products and reduced the occasional bloating.
She doesn’t only work on your nutrition, but on your overall lifestyle. What’s more, she keeps an eye on you – which certainly helps sticking to your goals! – and is always available to offer advice or good recipes!”
JULIE (see video) appreciates how my work goes far beyond just nutrition. It’s one thing to be able to share the vitamin and minerals that are in our food, but being able to understand the big challenges that you’re facing on a daily basis is what makes the difference.
Whether it’s the stress of new situations, going out to eat, or navigating a dinner party with friends or family, I’ve been where you are and can help you find a strategy to cope and thrive when these challenges come up.
Sam realized some of her diet staples were causing most of her digestive discomfort…
“After setting myself a variety of goals to take my health more seriously, I decided speaking to a nutritionist was high on the priority list. I had been going to the gym regularly and eating well but still was having some issues with acid reflux, low energy and stomach cramps among other things.
After speaking with Heather, I was able to implement a few small changes that helped manage my acid reflux after months of struggling. The biggest change occurred when she convinced me to try an AIP elimination diet. I was so surprised to realise that there were a few types of food which were regular staples of my diet that were actually causing most of the inflammation and discomfort I had been experiencing.
This awareness has been so helpful with meal planning as I can now consciously edit my recipes to help make them more suitable for my dietary needs. Cutting out the worst culprits entirely has made a massive difference to my day to day and really has kept down the bloat! I’d definitely recommend signing up to Heather’s coaching program. You never know what you’re going to find out about yourself!”
Catarina adopted healthier eating habits and saw so much improvement!
“For a long time I had been thinking of improving my eating habits and incredibly I found Heather at the moment that I decided to go for this change. Heather’s dedication, attentiveness and tailored advice really encouraged me to adopt healthier ways of eating and with her follow-ups I could really see my improvement in so many areas! I believe that my husband is also more thankful to Heather without knowing… Thank you for the great work and for going beyond and above!”

Get some A’s to your Q’s
Will you tell me exactly what to eat every day?
I will help you learn how to build a balanced plate and make smart choices, plus give you some recommendations of things to include or try to limit. You’ll have access to a meal planning tool that we will set up together to focus on your specific goals. I’ll guide you in creating a weekly plan. Plus I’ll be there to review the plans with you throughout our time together, give tips and tricks, and help make eating delicious, healthy food easy!
I'm vegetarian / vegan, can I work with you?
Yes, absolutely. It can be tricky to eat a vegetarian or vegan diet and ensure you’re getting all the nutrients you need – working with someone on this is a great step!
Are you going to tell me to take supplements?
Supplements are generally not a big part of my work. I prefer for you to get all your nutrition from real, whole foods. If you want to take a supplement, you should always discuss it with your primary care doctor before beginning any protocol.
I am not a medical doctor or providing any medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. I am not licensed to provide prescriptions.
Do I need to be located in Europe to work with you?
Nope! All my work is done online and our consultations will take place using a video conferencing system called Zoom. I’ll give you all the information you need prior to our first meeting.
My hours are very flexible and should allow you to find a time that suits you – no matter your schedule or timezone!
How far in advance do I need to book my sessions?
The first, intensive session as well as the re-evaluation must be booked at least one week in advance. This is because you will need to complete some forms as well as provide them to me with at least 2 business days to prepare in advance.
The check-in sessions can be booked at a minimum 48-hours in advance. However during our first session we will likely set up all our future sessions in one go to keep it simple!
What if I need to cancel / reschedule a session?
Appointments can be changed or cancelled up to 24 hours prior to appointment time. After this time, changes/cancellations will result in a 50% charge of the appointment fee. No-shows will result in a 100% charge of the appointment fee.
How long will I need to commit to?
One-on-one coaching is for a minimum of 4 months. In practice it can take at least this amount of time to really make and see results. There are no quick fixes, so be prepared to make the commitment and do the work.
If life comes in the way and we need to shortly hit pause, an extension of the program is open for discussion.
Do you have a refund policy?
The package will only be refunded for the amount of unused time. If you request a refund less than 24 hours before a scheduled session, that session will be charged as a late cancellation.
I believe in you
It’s so easy to get caught up in the comparison game. Thinking that certain things are possible for others but out of reach for you. But we all have the ability to feel amazing in our bodies! You’re ready to take action and make the changes to create this reality in your life.
“I’ve worked with Heather a few times to overcome some poor eating habits. I was experiencing a lot of stomach pain after meals and she offered an easy approach to clean up my diet, balance out my levels of stomach acid and ultimately curb sugar cravings. If you are looking for some nutritional advice, I would highly recommend working with her! Not only will she help you overcome nutritional problems, but also offer advice on how to live a stress-free life.”
“Heather has been very helpful. She used a very scientific way of processing and I had a very complete report (both written and oral) that matched my objectives concerning both improving the way I eat and also being healthy in general.
