Lauren has enabled me to come to realisations about my health and frame of mind that I have been struggling with for years
“Lauren has continued to guide and support me as I strive to become a healthier me. Our sessions have enabled me to stay focused on my vision, and weekly check-ins have kept me on track. Again and again Lauren has enabled me to come to realizations about my health and frame of mind that I have been struggling with for years. Health is life, and life is precious. I couldn’t recommend Lauren’s health coaching enough.“
C. Austin. Cape Town, SA.
I was putting my type II diabetes into remission
“The best thing that happened to me during coaching with Lauren was seeing the results of my blood glucose – I was putting my diabetes into remission. I also ramped up my walking routine. I lost 8kg’s in 12 weeks. What I found most helpful about Lauren’s coaching was always knowing that she was just a call/WhatsAapp/email away if I ever needed anything. I was not alone.”
Tim. Cape Town, SA
I’d definitely recommend her
“The things I loved about working with Lauren were that she was warm and welcoming. I felt comfortable to share both my doubts and challenges. And I could tell she cared about me, that motivated me and helped me stay on track. I particularly loved being able to send her pictures of what I ate and updates on my exercise. I’d definitely recommend her for health coaching.”
C. De Angelis. South of France.
“Lauren challenged my beliefs and directed my thinking to where I needed to be to make the health changes I’ve always wanted to make.”
Dr Shehnaz Moosa. Cape Town
I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to make a change in their lifestyle
“Lauren has helped me to see that I needed to make lifestyle changes that are sustainable. She has helped me make valuable diet, stress reduction and exercise changes by supporting me and holding me accountable to the goals that I set. Working with Lauren I have experienced so many positive changes to my health and wellness. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to make a change in their lifestyle.”
G. Miller. Johannesburg, SA.
Lauren is a holistic coach, one who can recognise the mutual relationship between the mind and the body, without collapsing one into the other
“Lauren is a holistic coach, one who can recognise the mutual relationship between the mind and the body, without collapsing one into the other. It gives her a high level of awareness which helps to tailor her advice to your needs. What makes Lauren special, at least in my experience, is the sense of support she lends to you, truly a pillar when your own legs are crumbling under the pressure of everyday life. Adding to that, once you are firmer on your own feet, she gives you the lift in your heart that keeps you moving. And that’s the most important thing.”
A. Pennington. Cape Town, SA.
I’m more efficient, more confident
“I didn’t realise how much I can actually achieve in just one day. I’m more efficient, more confident, I’m not putting off things. I used to put admin off because of the effort – they used to be mountains for me! Now, I’m a go getter! I used to be a go getter in my 20s, and then something shifted. Now I feel like I’m back!
Andrea. Cape Town, SA.
