35 Day Healthy Habits Group Programme
My 35 Day Healthy Habits programme is designed just for women and is run over 5 weeks. I educate, guide and support women (I work with men also but that’s a different programme!) who want to lose weight, increase energy, boost mood, move more, sleep better and eat healthier. It sounds like a mouthful however all of these are interconnected and related to your diet and lifestyle choices and habits. Eat better and your energy levels improve. Move more and you sleep better. Have a more positive mindset and you see solutions popping up around you. I combine my knowledge and skills in nutrition and lifestyle coaching with my expertise in behavioural change to help you set health goals, explore areas of focus and create your own personal action plan with weekly action steps and habits.
The 35 Day Healthy Habits programme is a great kick start for someone looking for support and motivation in a relaxed intimate setting to make healthier choices and create healthier habits. My way is very much a holistic approach to your health so no body shaming and no embarrassing moments. My previous groups have been very interactive and informal – we have ended up having a bit of fun which is so important. I will meet the 35 Day Healthy Habits group once a week. The classes take about an hour – the first week a little longer. I will do a short talk each week. Here are some examples of topics I cover:-
- Healthy eating for busy mums
- Choosing right for all day energy and how to avoid those energy slumps
- Managing food cravings and night time snacking
- How to lose weight without counting calories
- How to make the healthier choice when out socialising or eating away from home
- Why focusing on small habit changes for long term change works
- How to create a positive mindset to be consistent and stay with the programme
- The non-weight related signs that the programme is benefiting you
You go home every week with your own personal tracking sheet and a full set of client support sheets needed to complete the action steps and incorporate them around your daily life. We review the tracking sheets each week. I can track weight throughout the programme if your goal is to lose weight. So my job is to hold you accountable. You will also have access to a private members Facebook Group 35 Day Healthy Habits throughout the programme for daily reminders, on-going support and tips. This is the perfect forum for posing questions and queries between meetings so you will feel I am always there supporting you. However you don’t need to be on Facebook to avail of the support.
Here is an insight into my approach:-
NO MORE DIETS. This is a non-diet approach where all participants are treated the same, regardless of their size, without judgement or bias. My approach will help you build up resilience and skills so you can confidently make the right choices for your body and simultaneously letting go of the dieting culture that focuses on the notions of good or bad food, the right or wrong diets, counting, measuring or weighing foods. The best ‘diet’ is the way of eating that works best for you.
NO MORE COUNTING.I help clients to love their bodies and regain their confidence to have a healthy eating routine without counting numbers or counting calories. Actually I rarely mention calories. Food is so much more than their sum of calories. I will go through this on the 35 Day Healthy Habits programme.
HONOUR YOUR HUNGER. My non diet approach will help you distinguish between real and emotional hunger. I will help you create healthy habits and make food choices that honour your true hunger and satisfaction.
STOP FIGHTING WITH FOOD. I will help you create a more intuitive way of eating so are satisfying your body’s real nutrient requirements and help you have a more peaceful relationship with food.
SELFCARE. I have a lot of compassion for people who have invested a lot of time energy and money into the dieting culture that offers expensive short term quick fixes. My approach is on making manageable changes to your diet or lifestyle with weekly actions steps that create the foundations for long term transformation change.
My 35 Day Healthy Habits programme will give you all the tools that you will need to make informed choices about your diet and lifestyle.

Colette, Stradbally, Co. Waterford
Colette completed my 35 day healthy habits programme.
“Through Helen’s group I learned that food is a small part of the lifestyle change required to have a successful weight loss and to have the ability to maintain it. I now look at food in a whole new light and for the first time ever I eat really well and never feel hungry!! ”
Elaine, Stradbally, Co. Waterford
Elaine completed an 8 week transformation course with me.
“Helen took the time to analyse our food diaries and was a constant motivator. She helped me understand the importance of making a realistic changes and thought me that variety is key if I was to succeed with my weight loss journey. I am down a total of 27.5lb over the course of operation transformation and I have lost 2.5 inches from my waist and 4 inches from my hips.”
Rebecca came to me for one to one consultations
“In summary engaging with Helen has been one of the best things I have ever done to empower me. She has a wealth of knowledge in her area. I like the fact she looks at the whole person and you both decide on a tailor made program that is overseen weekly be Helen. Everyone should have a Helen in their life. ”
I can run this kick start programme amongst your work colleagues, for a group of your friends, for a sports club or your sports team or in your community. I will need at least 12 people per group for it to work.
