Female Hormone Health

The word Hormone derives from the ancient Greek word Horman, which means to impel, or set in motion. And that’s exactly what they do in our bodies. They set in motion our DNA by telling our cells what proteins to make, how much, and when. DNA is the blueprint for life and our bodies, but hormones are the boss. So when our hormones are out of balance; whether that’s through sport, lifestyle and stress, nutrition, or natural body changes such as puberty, pregnancy or menopause, it can feel as though our whole lives and bodies are out of balance too. Symptoms such as irregular or missing periods, debilitating PMS, weight loss plateaus, mental health difficulties, disturbed sleep or stagnating sporting performance can all be indicative of an underlying hormone issue. 


Optimising our nutrition can help ease these changes, restore balance, and ensure we are performing at our best, day after day.


Sports Nutrition

Effective sport nutrition goes beyond the realms of following a traditional healthy diet. If you want to maximise your performance potential your nutrition needs to respond and adapt to not only your training plans and goals, but also lifestyle and crucially, your unique physiology.


Most athletes, whether professional or recreational, will experience difficulties at some point in their career. Common issues include poor recovery, compromised ability to hit high intensity sessions, performance plateaus, difficulties with body composition, poor sleep quality, loss of periods and hormonal dysregulation, and of course the all too frequent gastro-intestinal distress during races or training. 


Whether you are looking for help with a specific problem, or you are hoping to side-step those problems entirely right from the word go, taking a closer look at your nutrition may be the key.

The Corporate Athlete

Business leaders, CEO’s and people working in high pressure corporate environments have a lot in common with sports athletes. Both groups need high levels of energy, motivation, emotional resilience and focus. However, while sports athletes have off-seasons and recovery time to recuperate and repair, the corporate athlete has to perform consistently, day after day, with only a few weeks holiday per year.


In sports training, physical stress is the key driver of physiological adaptation. After the stressor, ie, the training session, athletes have periods of rest scheduled which allow those physiological adaptations to actually occur. Similarly for the corporate athlete, stress can be a great motivator and driver of high performance but while the sports athlete has rest periods intentionally scheduled in their planning, corporate athletes rarely do. So while stress is certainly a positive and necessary ingredient in promoting high performance, the ability to manage that stress over time is the difference between brilliance and burnout. 



By applying the same methods that help Olympic athletes achieve sporting brilliance, Sophie aims to help corporate athletes use nutrition to meet and surpass their own performance goals, using the stresses encountered in the workplace to drive health and productivity, and ultimately thrive in their chosen field.
