Are you stuck in a rut when it comes to your health and well-being ? Are you looking to make long-term sustainable changes to support your health and well-being?

However, are you feeling exhausted, overwhelmed or burnt out?

I support busy professionals like yourself to help slow down and rest and then help uncover and change behaviours that may impact your health. I help support you to bridge the gap between your health and well-being aspirations and the challenges of daily life.

I have been trained by some of the world’s leading researchers and practitioners in health, well-being and behaviour change, and I am able to translate this into unique insights, tools and support to help you understand where you are currently at and then help you find ways to support you improve your health and wellbeing.

Throughout my career, one of my ‘joys’ has been to help and support others to help achieve their goals. I have connected and collaborated with people worldwide, with diverse backgrounds, roles and experiences. I’ve been trusted by some of Australia’s biggest brands and developed key partnerships with organisations of all sizes.

One of my strengths is my ability to help you see the bigger picture regarding your health and wellbeing, and I help you see the connections and how to bring them together to help improve your health and your wellbeing. I can help you find a path forward towards achieving the outcome even when the picture seems uncertain.

I am an intent listener, and I spend time first understanding your unique underlying needs. I work with you to understand your level of motivation, and your strengths and work through the challenges and obstacles you may face, so that you can support your health and overall wellbeing. I provide a calm, safe and supportive space for you to explore and experiment or take time out to rest if needed.

Clients often tell me when they work with me they are often surprised by what seem like simple steps. But they often look back and understand it all worked because they had the right support and tools they needed to get there.

Please reach out and connect,  I would love to have a chat to see if I can help support you to feel more like a human ‘being’ and not just a human always ‘doing’.

Health Coaching in Sydney from Ayubowan

How the journey began....

We all have the best of intentions when it comes to our health. Finding solutions and support to help bridge the gap between our health aspirations and the demands of daily life has always intrigued and inspired me throughout my career in health and consumer behaviour.

I've experienced the challenges of balancing the demands of a corporate role, travel and family and the physical and mental toll this can take on a person's health. I was always 'on the go, and whilst I enjoyed what I did, I worked long hours and was often tired and exhausted.

Three visits to the Hospital Emergency department (in a couple of weeks), a diagnosis of a rare medical condition, and numerous adverse side effects from the medications meant I had to stop working. It was challenging both physically and mentally and, to be honest, quite confronting. I needed to put my health first and learn how to slow down.

There was limited research about the disease other than treating the symptoms. I used my science background and health research experience to find answers. The most promising outcomes were shown in lifestyle modifications and behaviour change in similar health conditions.

I used my strategy development experience to develop my picture of health and well-being and undertook several initiatives I called 'Operation-Calm the Farm'. I began to experiment with the results of my research, some improvements were immediate, and others took more time. What intrigued me was that some minor changes over time had an enormous impact - like retraining my breath patterns. I slowly moved towards better health, but it took time and effort, and I wanted to understand why.

I spent many years presenting insights and working with clients and colleagues worldwide to help them develop strategies and find solutions to address their needs. I decided I wanted to use this professional experience and my personal experience to help busy professionals like yourself develop strategies and find sustainable solutions to help support your health whilst keeping up with the challenges of daily life.

I saw the efficacy and results of bridging the gap in the new newly-emerging field of Health Coaching as a solution to help bridge the gap between our intentions and actual behaviour and provide support along the journey.

The profound impact of changing how I breathe, which also helped improve my health, was something I wanted to understand on a deeper level, so I undertook further training to dive into its impact on our physiology and psychology.

With my experience and understanding of science and health, I was heartened to find evidence-based solutions and like-minded health professionals in the field of Lifestyle Medicine. I recently obtained my Fellowship in Lifestyle Medicine.
