Want to enhance the health, well-being and performance of your team?

Let’s get your team more energised, focused and productive through results driven well-being strategies.

Almost 6 hours of employee time is lost per week per person with fatigue… nearly one whole day’s work! Fatigue costs the Australian industry upwards of $3bn per year due to losses in productivity, workplace injury and absenteeism. As a whole, absenteeism from all health issues amounts to $7bn per year.

Happier, healthier employees are 12% more productive and 87% more loyal to their employers, so the benefits of workplace wellness initiatives can be far-reaching. 

In my fun ‘lunch and learn’ workshops and programs, you’ll discover powerful and effective nutrition, mindset, mindfulness and lifestyle strategies to boost your staff’s energy, productivity and well-being – and the bottom line of your business. 


After struggling with exhaustion (and eventually, burnout) for years from working in corporate, I decided a sea change was needed. I left my career in the packaging design industry to study naturopathy and nutrition to find out what it takes to feel energetic and resilient. I discovered that nutrition is only the starting point. How you think, feel and show up in the world matters just as much. This is why I went on to train as a coach to master psychology, emotional resilience and other lifestyle strategies that help you feel lit up from your cells right down to your soul. 

My unique approach of Cell to Soul Nutrition combines the power of influencing biology, psychology, emotions and lifestyle to maximise energy, well-being and performance. My workshops deliver the most effective insights I share with private clients, and group programs help bridge the gap between staff knowing what to do and actually doing it to create lasting results, so the money you invest in your health and well-being program delivers a healthier return on investment.

Those who share health goals and have accountability in a group setting are far more successful at improving their health than people who go it alone.

In fact, a strategically designed program, where results are tracked and measured, can provide an ROI between 2:1 and 5:1 for every dollar spent on a wellness program. 

Group programs are therefore a fantastic solution for businesses wanting to create lasting results for their team.

It was so refreshing that more than business was referred to in being successful.

Had a very interesting and inspiring workshop with Melissa Smith yesterday as part of a NatWest Women in Business event in RBS Bishopsgate. It was so refreshing to be at a session where more than business was referred to in being successful. A fully holistic look at the life of an entrepreneur was a wonderful change.

Thanks Melissa and the workbook was a nice surprise as well as a useful tool for future use.

Work and life, well-being and productivity, are not on opposite sides — so they don’t need to be balanced. They’re on the same side, and rise in tandem. Increase one and you increase the other.
