As busy professionals, we often become the last ones on our own priority list. First might be our careers, or the family and kids, or perhaps other more important things on the never-ending to-do list. If you think that bloating or constipation is normal, or joint pain (hello shoulders and knees!) mood swings or headaches, you are wrong! These are all symptoms that can be addressed with better nutrition and healthier lifestyle choices.
As certified Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach (NLC) I can help you if you want to:
As an NLC I use scientific evidence to support my coaching and I have a solid understanding of how nutrition impacts your health. I will be your guide and advocate for your health and wellbeing, I will provide inspiration for growth so you can reach your greatest potential. With my instructions, you will be guided as to what, when, how to do it, and I will explain the why too. As you are in charge of your own health, I will empower you with the knowledge and understanding that can help you feel great.

“Wellness is living your life very consciously, in ways that enhance your health and wellbeing”
Have you had enough of telling yourself why you can’t do something? I tell you that you can! With my 12-week holistic health coaching program you'll find that healthy habits need not to be boring and life should be enjoyed. Here's Elli’s testimonial on how this works.
“I am a 43-year-old woman, office worker with low motivation to exercise. During covid times with less travelling I had more time to look after myself which meant better sleep, cooking food and taking long walks. I noticed Tuula's coaching post on Facebook and thought that this is what I need right now, and what I have capabilities for: finetuning my diet and finding easy-to-approach exercise routines into my days. And that's exactly what I got! Tuula had a method of small step changes and close follow-ups: that's how routines build up. Tuula interviewed me in detail about my targets, capabilities and support needs. She analyzed my eating diary in detail and recommended some easy-to-adopt changes to it to ensure I get all nutrients while keeping fit. She also gave me new recipes to try. She made me a schedule for exercise with both familiar things and new stuff to try, such as morning walks and squats in-between Teams meetings. Tuula's approach is very caring, I could really feel her support even between our meetings. I felt we connected easily since she also has strong business experience and therefore has realistic views on what kind of support and information could be needed with hectic work load."

"Tuula has been critical help throughout my journey trying to find healthier way to manage a chronic illness. Health Coaching was not something I was thinking about pre COVID. Having had Crohn’s Disease since my mid 20’s, I followed the traditional western medicine approach for cure that included endless cycle of medicine and more medicine over the years. Earlier this year, after a bad reaction to a biological medicine to treat Crohn’s, I began to question the root cause of my illness.
With Tuula’s 12-week health coaching program, I now better understand how gut wellbeing is a combination of nutrition (food is the best medicine!) and lifestyle. The action steps each week that she set, helped me stay on track and the weekly calls kept the motivation going. I’ve learned valuable tools that are part of my daily routine now, i.e breathing exercises, being more aware of personal cleaning products (and toxins in them), use of essential oils topically and elimination of processed foods among many others.
The food diary was eye opening (done via app) and a MUST for everyone trying to find better way to eat. Tuula was able to provide the results in a measurable way that clearly showed what was working and where change was needed. Without writing down (or adding in the app), you just don’t realize what you eat. I thought that I did not have too much sugar in my diet (at least added sugar), turns out that I consumed too much of it and had too little protein in my diet, despite thinking that I was on a healthy pescatarian/vegetarian diet.
Tuula has a friendly approach on guiding you through the process by suggesting different options. If something does not work, she will find a different way or approach to find a solution. I liked that it was not one way dialogue by her telling what should be done, but we mutually agreed on next steps each week. I highly recommend Tuula, she is a true, caring professional who provides you the tools to continue the journey on your own. I hope to continue to touch base with her on a monthly or bi monthly calls!"
