Welcome to another “Natural New Age Mums Chat About…”
I am so excited to be featuring some amazing Aussie mums who specialize in their own particular natural and/or new age area. The aim is to give us a little bit of inside information into some new things we may not know about, but are curious.
Today I welcoming the beautiful Brenda Janschek from Brenda Janscheck Health and Lifestyle to tell us all about health coaching!
Tell us about yourself…. Hello, I am Brenda Janschek, I have two beautiful children who are the light of my life, who are 7yrs and 9yrs of age. Being a mother has been my crowning glory and my family are the most important thing to me in the world. I am also a Nutrition Coach (www.brendajanschek.com) and I’m addicted to my morning walks around my beautiful beach suburb of Coogee. Oh, and I love good food. I live to eat!
What is your outlook on life? Try not to judge others, everyone is going through something. I believe that we should all take utmost care to look after ourselves, so that we can then look after our loved ones and our world. It’s not always easy to do this but awareness and small changes can make a big difference. There is always a positive outcome or learning opportunity in any challenging situation, we just have to be open enough to find it. Respect our bodies and our earth and we will be rewarded with good health and good karma.
So, what is health coaching ?
Health Coaching focuses on embedding a healthy, sustainable approach to diet and lifestyle through focused support over a number of sessions. Coaches challenge the client to identify their goals and values and aim to transform their goals into action through education and support. Ingraining positive, healthy habits lays the platform for optimal long term physical and emotional health.
Through my speaking, blogging, workshops and programs, I inform and educate parents about the importance positive nutrition plays in the overall health of our children, and how addressing this while they are young will greatly affect their health in the future. I hope to encourage and empower parents and children to make healthy choices to improve their quality of life and prevent them from developing the many debilitating conditions that are sadly on the rise.
What do your nutrition programs involve?
I run a few programs which aim to get families back on track with healthy eating and a healthy life.
I have my informative Plentiful Workshops which include presentations and tastings on Healthy Lunchboxes, Healthy Tasty Treats and Gluten-Free Eating. And I currently have a DIY Christmas Food Gifts and Beauty Products scheduled for the end of November.
I also conduct Kitchen Reboots, which involves a pantry, fridge and freezer clean out and which I consider is an important step in overhauling your health , and which empowers parents with information and tools so that they can continue to implement the positive changes.
Flavour Food Tours show my clients the best places to shop and the best products to stock up on.
One-on-one coaching is also available for those who have more individual needs or who want to ensure they imbed these changes into their lifestyle.
I also run Kids Cooking Classes, which are an incredible amount of fun. They are beneficial in getting kids involved in the ritual of cooking and learning lots of other things without even realising it!
Why would you recommend your services ?
Food and family are my passions, and I live them with joy and enthusiasm every day. I strive to guide other parents through the maze of confusing information related to food, and to reconnect with positive nutritional habits that ensure positive well-being for themselves and their families.
Sadly, the reality of our existence is that we are seeing a dramatic increase in so many health conditions with our children, such as ADD, ADHD, auto-immune disorders, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, inflammatory diseases and many more illnesses. We can no longer ignore it and we need to explore the real reasons behind this. And there’s no reason why we can’t have some fun along the way!
