My name is Ciara and I've been working as a nutritional therapist since 2012. I have helped countless women (and some men too!) over the years to achieve their health goals, clear unwanted symptoms and to shift stubborn weight.
I’ve always had an interest in nutrition and natural health and a redundancy during maternity leave on my first child gave me the perfect opportunity to return to study. I never actually thought I would end up running my own business but here I am!
I am 48 years old and have 3 sons so with family and work life there isn’t a huge amount of spare time. But I make sure that I make time to do some yoga for my mental as well as my physical health and I love walking in nature.
A cancer diagnosis a couple of years back really cemented for me how important it is for us women to take proper care of ourselves. I am really big on women prioritizing themselves, their own needs and their own health. You should not be at the bottom of your to-do list!
I love seeing the transformations with my clients and I get so excited when my clients feel empowered about making changes to their food and lifestyle. I have a special interest in pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes, digestive health and perimenopause. I love running my online programmes which I do a few times a year and a working with companies on wellness programmes to improve the health of their employees.
I am a member of NTOI and undergo regular continuous professional development to keep on top of the fast moving pace of nutritional science.
I am a nutrition and health coach with a lifelong passion for health and self-care as a means to getting the most out of life.
I started my career in the food industry following studies in food science after which I completed an Advanced Diploma in Nutrition & Health Coaching with the Irish Institute for Nutrition & Health. This led to a natural transition to a career in nutrition which I absolutely love.
In my work I focus on all facets of health with clients; from movement, sleep, exercise and relaxation to using nutrition to nourish the body and prevent illness.
I am a very active person. I enjoy running, strength training, yoga and sea swimming with friends. An ideal Sunday morning for me is an early run followed by a dip in the sea and a leisurely hour drinking coffee looking at the sea at The Beach Hut at Clogherhead, one of my favourite places.
I am very enthusiastic about coaching and helping others to get more out of life. I believe with the right guidance, support and encouragement we can unravel our nutrition and health issues and regain and maintain our vitality and zest for life.
