Hello there, I’m Lindsey Jenkin, Nutritional Therapist and Lifestyle Coach on a mission to make healthy living uncomplicated and sustainable.
I am a straight talking, results-driven practitioner and I believe that good health is accessible to all of us. My mission is to make healthy living uncomplicated so you can feel better, be more successful and reverse or reduce the risk of lifestyle-related illness.
The reason that I am so passionate about what I do is because I started experiencing severe anxiety, panic attacks and bouts of depression in my late teens and this went on well into my late 20’s. At times it would spiral out of control and make me agoraphobic. I spent many years feeling stuck and held back – I knew I wanted so much more though.
I was determined to beat it and have spent countless hours over the years learning about the relationship diet, exercise, stress and sleep has with physical and mental health. These were the key areas that helped me regain control and the key areas that I focus on daily to make sure I stay in control. And the better I look after myself the better I can look after everyone else.
In a former life, I spend many years working in the fashion and advertising industries. I decided to retrain as a Nutritional Therapist in 2013 and spent 3 years studying evenings and weekends alongside my full-time job. I had my daughter, Willow in my final year and set up my business while on maternity leave. This has given me first-hand experience in juggling a very hectic life and I know how easy can be to let your own needs slip when you’re spinning lots of plates.
Because of my experience with anxiety and panic attacks, I know what I need to do to stay on top and I don’t compromise on this. In fact, the more stress I am under, the more I prioritise my own needs. Despite losing most of my spare time I still fit in exercise, nourishing meals and relaxation almost daily. It’s more important now than ever. Running a business and being a mother can be hard but I have implemented a lifestyle that allows me to stay fit, healthy and resilient and if I can do it, so can you!
