“A chance conversation has ended literally years worth of pain, illness, discomfort and embarrassment for me and my little boy age 6. It guided me to work with Ros Connolly over the past 5 months to remove all gluten from our diet. Who would of realised quite how hard that would be? But what a difference it would make. With Ros’s unstinting support, positively, compassion and advice we are feeling the best we ever have. Me and my little boy had been suffering for literally years from, in his words “an ouch tummy” I remember one mum asking me, on hearing my toddler make this complaint “what do you do for that?” Exactly! What do you do for that? We did everything we could, going to several different GP’s and having every test under the sun and being told there was nothing wrong with us. One GP even told me I had to drop it! But when my little boys tummy was constantly distended and he was in constant pain, as a mother you go on looking for the solution.

I have had 6 coaching sessions with Ros and they have totally changed our life. She has brought health, happiness and harmony to our family. It hasn’t always been easy to make the changes we have, and she must be fed up of me asking “but what do you eat for breakfast if you don’t have cereal?” But she explained everything clearly and simply and offered solutions and advice when I was totally stuck. The scope and impact has been the most surprising of the sessions for me. I remember my first session, being this frazzled mess and my last session being “I’ve got this” she gave me the knowledge confidence and understanding of what was going on in our bodies and how to use food to help fix it and it certainly has for us. I can’t recommend Ros enough, she is an amazing human being and I am so happy to have her in my life.”

“I heard about Ros through mutual acquaintances at a time in my life that I felt I needed some additional support on my health journey.

I as diagnosed with Grave’s Disease in 2012 and have tried conventional medicine as well as alternative therapies and approaches. I’m still not where I would like to be with my health and so what I really wanted from a health coach was someone that could give me the direction and motivation that I sometimes lack on my own.

I was nervous about how the coaching would work as one of my biggest struggles is sticking with things consistently, such as the AIP. From our first conversation though, I was struck by Ros’ warm and approachable character; I never once felt judged or shamed, only encouraged and reassured.

At times my illness has left me feeling isolated and misunderstood. I’ve felt frustrated with not feeling like me anymore, however, Ros has helped me with an ongoing process of acceptance of what Grave’s means for me.

She shared her own experience with me and gave invaluable pointers and suggestions. What I gained from our coaching sessions was another pair of eyes to look objectively at my personal situation whilst also providing empathetic guidance and encouragement.

Ros is highly qualified academically and has personal experience alongside; I cannot recommend her enough.”

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from my coaching sessions with Ros but right from the start she put me at ease and I found her very warm, caring and easy to talk to. We met via video which made it very easy to fit the sessions into my working day with no time needed to travel to appointments.

Over the 6 sessions we covered many areas from reviewing my diet through to exercises to identify my key personal values and practical solutions for finding time in my day for mindfulness and breathing exercises. I found every session beneficial and thought provoking resulting in several changes that have led me to feeling calmer and more in control of in particular my working life.

If you have health and wellbeing goals that you are struggling to achieve I can highly recommend Ros. She is a very supportive and empathetic mentor for talking through your obstacles , addressing accountability issues and identifying practical solutions.”
