Nutrition & Health Consultation

about rakel

 

What I do 


I teach people how to eat healthier, think healthier & live healthier lives. I coach people in taking care of their own health where they discover a more balanced & happier life.


Building on my education & background in nutrition, positive psychology, mindfulness & pilates I help people achieve greater balance and wellbeing. Through our coaching I provide people with tools that puts them onto a path of vitality & wellbeing and empowers them to continue on their path long after our work together has finished.


I focus on individual consultation, group education and public lectures as well as health promotion in the workplace. 


I am also an active pilates instructor and a nutrition & health writer, contributing to content both in print as well as online. 




Why I do what I do?


I am passionate about human health and human potential. My focus is on health promotion & prevention rather than cure. I combine my education and work in the different fields of health because I believe true balance & wellbeing can only be reached when we work on the different components that make up our physical & mental health. I regard the body as an ecosystem, where different aspects of the body and mind need to be in balance for the ecosystem to function. This is where the magic happens.


I am an enthusiastic and continuous learner in the fields of nutrition, health & positive psychology, MBSR/MBCT, mindful eating and the science of wellbeing and happiness. I do my best in to keeping updated on the latest science and research in the aforementioned fields.


I draw inspiration from and follow the works of Brené Brown, Kristin Neff, Martin Seligman, Sonia Lyubomirski, Daniel Gilbert, Pema Chödrön, Barbara Fredrickson, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Malcolm Gladwell amongst others.

What can you expect from our work together?



Every individual is different in their needs and expectations so every consultation is individualized. See what you can expect from our work together.


In general, the more focus and effort people are willing to put into our work together the better and more long-term the results.


I only work with highly motivated & engaged individuals, people that are willing to put effort into reaching their highest level of health & wellbeing.
