Many will benefit from support to help them make the changes required after an Ayurvedic consultation. The coaching sessions are an opportunity to discuss how you are getting on, answer questions and make any necessary changes to your personalised plan. A 30 minute coaching session is recommended for one month after your consultation.

Ayurveda is a holistic healing system that originated from the Indian sub–continent over 5000 years ago. This system of healing restores balance to the body and mind, while healing and preventing disease through food, herb, cleansing and lifestyle advice. Ayurveda recognises we each have a specific mind-body type and explains how to live in balance with this – the foundation for good health. Conditions Ayurveda can help with include Chronic Diseases, Digestive Complaints, Chronic Inflammation, Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Fear, Fatigue, Insomnia, Anger/irritability, Psoriasis, Burnout, Menopause, Weight Loss/Gain, Water Retention, Lethargy, Respiratory Conditions, Excess Mucus, Lymphatic Congestion.
I trained with the American Institute of Vedic studies and am a member of the Ayurvedic Professionals Association.
What you can expect from a consultation
During the 60 minute consultation we will take a deep dive into your health and personal history. I will ask a number of questions in relation to your diet, lifestyle and life experiences, and carry out tongue and nail diagnosis. This in-depth consultation will allow me to discover your constitution (prakriti), and whether you currently have any imbalances (vikriti) – the ground for ill health. Shortly after the consultation I will send you a personal Ayurvedic healthcare plan which includes nutritional and lifestyle advice, daily and seasonal routines, cleansing advice, appropriate Ayurvedic therapies that can be carried out at home, herbal and aroma suggestions.
What you can expect from an Ayurvedic coaching session
I offer 30 minute and 60 minute Ayurvedic coaching sessions, and recommend a 30 minute one 2-3 weeks after your initial consultation, to check in on how things are going. The 60 minute sessions are designed to support you to implement your plan, and support anyone with Ayurvedic advice. I also draw on my experience of helping people to change habits quickly through my work as a clinical Hypnotherapist.
As a clinical Hypnotherapist I offer sessions in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, which is a modern psychotherapeutic approach that combines Solution Focused Brief Therapy with light trance work. In Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, therapists look at what the client wants to achieve (the solution) rather than at whatever prompted them to seek help (the problem). This is a powerful modern technique that enables positive change quickly and effectively – changes are usually seen within 8-12 weeks. Conditions helped include Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Low Self-Esteem, Insomnia, Anger, IBS, OCD, PTSD, Exam Stress, Performance Enhancement.
Through deep relaxation and light trance we bring both the conscious mind and sub-conscious mind into balance and focus them on how you want things to be, creating the conditions within the mind to support positive change.
We begin with the initial consultation where you can discuss the changes you would like to make; learn the way the brain works; discover how we experience emotions in the way that we do and how these can affect us and our habits, along with what we can do to change these; and learn what light trance is, that it is a very normal and natural state. At the end of the initial consultation if you decide you would like to continue, you will leave with a link to a relaxation recording to listen to in between sessions.
For stress and digestive issues Ayurveda combined with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a powerful combination.

“I hadn’t been sleeping due to anxiety. I’m now experiencing good quality sleep, a lowering of anxiety, a positive outlook and a supportive mental attitude. I am so happy with the outcomes after years of struggling it has been life changing.”
“When I came to see Lucy my digestion was not good and I was suffering from panic attacks. In just a few weeks I felt grounded and the pain was gone. I moved forward in all areas of my life. I now sleep better and look forward with optimism and brightness.”
“Lucy is nurturing in such a grounded and honest way. It’s such a part of her being to be empathetic and compassionate and these abilities shine through her sessions.”
“After I recently received some concerning test results related to a cancer I live with for quite some years Lucy jumped in to be my health coach to support me in boosting my immunity and energy. Through her personal, practical and confident way of explaining and applying her knowledge, by cooking the most delicious and beautiful meals, Lucy makes the Ayurvedic way of living very accessible and attractive. Working together with Lucy in planning my healthy meals and preparing food made the learning fun and easy. I can’t recommend Lucy enough to anyone who likes to feel more balanced and in charge of how they feel in their own body. She is a true treasure of wisdom that can benefit so many.”
“I came to see Lucy for a number of months to heal some deep rooted things linked to grief, anxiety and insomnia. My sleep and mood improved vastly. I would definitely recommend Lucy for her calm, compassionate and effective work.”
