WELCOME, WE ARE SO PLEASED TO HAVE YOU HERE

I'M RACHEL

Rachel is a Consultant Dietitian, Therapist, Personal Trainer and Mummy with a love for nature. 

Her favourite things are freshly baked bread, birkenstock sandals (she even got married in them), dungarees, the ocean, the first sip of freshly brewed coffee and morning sunrises.

Rachel is the founder of The Nurture Circle. She is Clinical Dietitian, Personal Trainer and Certified Integrative Therapist. Rachel gained her first degree in Dietetics and Nutrition from the University of Surrey, completing her acute clinical work at Royal Surrey and Frimley Park; she then went on to complete her Post Graduate Diploma with the International Olympic Committee before gaining her certification in Counselling and Hypnotherapy.  She holds membership with the Health Care Professions Councils (HCPC) and has certificates, diplomas or enhanced training in neurobiology of eating disorders, developmental neuroscience, inner child healing, advanced CBT,  hypnotherapy, mindfulness, somatics, body image and sexual trauma, addiction, tantra, applied polyvagal/rainbow mapping  and self compassion. 

Rachel marries her background in clinical nutrition and neuroscience with a patient centred therapeutic style and a holistic approach to health to see the full picture and support the self healing potential of the individual.

 

In addition to her work with individuals, Rachel is also a clinical educator who presents nationally and internationally; including upskilling and mentoring health and fitness professionals. 
 

Rachel lives on a little farm in the Sussex countryside with her husband, three children and two mischievous beagles. She nurture her clients and create her courses, podcasts and resources from a little garden room; but it hasn't always been this way.

At 18 Rachel became a solo mum and her plans to become a forensic scientist became a path for a different lifetime.

Instead, she pursued her love for movement, nutrition and supporting others and qualified as a Personal Trainer which allowed her to fund herself through a degree in Dietetics and Nutrition. During that journey she struggled and recovered from an eating disorder and connected with others experiencing the same grapple with their body, eating and sense of self and this inspired her to become a specialist in this area. Today, she has been working within this space for over a decade, gaining post grads with the International Olympic Committee and upskilling as a Therapeutic Councellor supporting individuals and groups through my private practise, within acute and forensic NHS settings and in the British Army.

Movement has been something that has both allowed Rachel to push boundaries and connected her deeply to my body.

 

Rachel grew up as a gymnast and dancer and went on to compete for Great Britain in Powerlifting; she  broke the British records and took a gold medal home from the European Championships. Following her dad's passing after a heroic battle with cancer, she raced an Ironman across Australia to raise funds for the team that cared for him.

If you popped over for coffee now Rachel would probably be in the garden with the kids tending to her vegetables or stuck into a crime drama book.

She feels it is such an honour to witness and guide individuals to move from a place of fear to a place of freedom. 


 She knows what it is like to abandon yourself and to live in fear of food, of eating, of what would happen if you start to nourish, love and care for yourself.  She also knows what it is like to deprive yourself not only of food, but also of life and love. 
 

​She also knows what it is like to overcome these things, to heal the war with food, to become an inhabitant of your body and reclaim your voice, your truth and your joy. 

Welcome in.



Just a few important things to me ...

 



J my husband is my safe space ... and full up to the brim with sarcasm!

 



Meeting with other women aka "the sisterhood" nurtures my soul! 

 



Beatrice and Winnifred ... our big loves - although they are rabbit chasers!

 



Immersing myself on other cultures and learning their traditions is something I love.

 



The ocean is so healing, I try to visit every week!

 

I love to hear from you so please say hello! x

MEET CORY

Food Freedom and Gentle Nutrition Coach
 

Hello, my name is Cory, I am an EIQ certified nutritionist and personal trainer who is also pre/post natal certified. My aim for you is to understand that health is multifaceted and to introduce you to a number of ways to practice attunement and to encourage you to find new and more positive ways to manage your life and of course your emotions. 

Being human is hard and there is so much “noise” around how we “should” look, live and be and I totally understand how frustrating it can be to filter out the misinformation that is perpetuated by diet culture and the media 

As a recovering people pleaser I also understand how difficult it can be to prioritise yourself and to honour your values and live a full, wholehearted life without the associated guilt that comes with putting yourself first, however - as a reminder, you get one life and trying to please everyone is a fruitless and impossible undertaking and can often lead to you feeling lost and unfulfilled. 

My intention for you is to learn how to life a wholehearted life, to improve your faith in your ability to handle difficult days, which will come - but as long as you have those coping mechanisms to help you overcome and embrace the full spectrum of human emotions it will lead to your whole life experience improving.

To explore working with Cory please say hello or look at our Food Freedom Coaching or Gentle Weight Loss Coaching

MEET GEORGIA

Clinical Dietitian 
 

Hey there! 

 

My name is Georgia, and I'm a Registered Dietitian (APD and HCPC). Although I'm originally from Australia, I recently moved to the UK to explore and challenge myself.

 

I've always been passionate about Nutrition and the power of food. However, it was my experience with my eating disorder that motivated me to study Nutrition and Dietetics. 

 

For me, good health is all about small, consistent habits that we practice every day. It's about finding a balance between nourishing our bodies and minds and enjoying the foods we love. Starting with simple changes, we can build a healthier and more fulfilling life.

 

As a dietitian, my goal is to help you break down your health goals into practical, everyday habits. I use evidence-based advice and customised tools to support you in achieving your weight and health-related goals.

To explore working with Georgia please explore our Nutrition Consultations or say hello
