Picture this...

Imagine feeling confident in the protocols you create, while resonating with your clients. Knowing how and when to share information and run successful sessions. Building a safe container for clients, where they feel supported and free to express themselves. 

Imagine being the type of practitioner that people are excited to talk about to their friends and family.


You may feel stuck, wondering how to run effective sessions and how to provide just enough information for your clients. 

You might feel nervous before sessions, shaky and anxious like a first date, wondering if you will say the right things. 

You may feel unsure of how to get things started after school, or how to fine tune your practice for lasting success. 

You may still feel unsure of how clients feel leaving sessions or wonder why they drop off and cancel without warning. 

What if there was another way?

What if there was a way to feel excited after client sessions? Knowing full well that your clients feel your support. That your sessions are helpful for not only them, but for you - each session allowing you to sink deeper and expand into your potential as a transformative practitioner. 

What if there was a way to package your passions as a nutritionist and create a career and life that you love, that supports you while impacting others? Maybe even one that didn't involve clinical work?

And what if there was a way to do all of this in an almost effortless way, so your clients are on the path of least resistance and you yourself feel calm and confident throughout the process? 

So you think, one day... that will be me.

Perhaps you think this comes with years of experience, or by going back to school,  so you feel ready and prepared to start your practice or land more clients.

Here’s the thing. Being a good practitioner is a state of being - a blend of art and science. 

By understanding and honouring this, you can rapidly grow your business and impact more people, all while feeling inspired and excited to do what you love. 

Of course there is the business side of things, but when you adopt these principles you can scale your business with ease - You don't need to wait 5, 10, 15 years to reach this state of wisdom and experience in your practice. 

Start now, but skip the trial and error

Based on years of combined experience, we’ve distilled thousands of hours of clinical and business trial and error to create the information we share here. 

We’ve taken ample continuing education and worked under mentors. 

We’ve discovered the anatomy of client acquisition and retention. 

We’ve learned from some of the best leaders in the field, as well as from our clients themselves, how to be a better practitioner. 

Through all of this, we have learned how to be impactful practitioners that not only empower our clients, but remind clients of their innate power. 

We know how to deliver information to our clients in a way that sparks the fire that reaches beyond small goals - sparks that grow into a deeper passion and desire to understand life as a whole.
