In my early 20s, I discovered an interest in nutrition. This was because I burnt out and suffered from chronic fatigue (fuelled by my heavy varsity study schedule, work and social life). During this time, I read every single nutrition book I could get my hands on, and became obsessed with eating healthily.
Eventually, the day came when I realised that I needed to find balance. It was dysfunctional being so obsessive, even if it is for the right reasons, and just wasn’t sustainable. I found it very difficult to let go of my healthy fanatical ways, especially because I didn’t want to put on weight. I was done depriving myself of foods I loved, and just food in general. I tried every diet on the market and kept reading every book looking for the answers. Diets work, but they are not sustainable in our daily stressful lives and are not healthy in the long run. It was at this time that my journey began.
I started listening to my body and trusting its needs on all levels. With so much conflicting nutritional advice and so many constant changes in scientific research, often we are left not knowing what or who to believe. Everything you need to know, your body’s innate intelligence already knows.
Book a session with me and learn how to listen to your body again.
I firmly believe that everything we do in life is a reflection of our deepest, core beliefs. This is true of our relationship with food, as well as the shape and size of our bodies. It’s important for people to become aware of their bodies once again, and learn how to trust their instincts when it comes to food and eating.
One of my biggest passions is educating people on how to do this. Additionally, I’m very passionate about teaching parents how to feed their children so that they foster a healthy relationship with food from day one.

Parents whom I refer to Desi are offered comprehensive guidance with workable solutions in helping their children with their eating patterns and habits. She is also able to look at deeper underlying issues that are reflected in difficult eating habits. Her valuable insight has made a huge difference in my life and I value her high standard of ethics.
After suffering with hormonal and painful menstrual problems most of my life, Desi was able to help me balance my body with nutrition and supplementation and prevent invasive surgery. She also correctly diagnosed a metabolic condition and I now have the tools to manage it.
Desi has changed my life! My health and strength have greatly improved.
