About Loliya Harrison
I am a Certified Women’s Vitality and Life Coach, with a holistic approach that includes Physical Coaching, Nutritional Coaching and complementary areas such as breath re-education and Pilates. My aim is to provide a potentially life-changing process for women.
My own story is, I believe, a useful illustration of my approach:
In my 30s and 40s, I coped well with the stresses of life. Good nutrition and regular exercise helped me juggle family life with young children and a career teaching Science in London secondary schools. I became motivated to move into working as a Nutritional Therapist and a Personal Trainer as I developed my passion to help others look after their own health.
When I entered my 50s my healthy eating and exercise regimes seemed to be working less effectively. I struggled to keep my weight down and repeatedly got injured when exercising. I realised the menopause meant I had differing, more complex, needs and I began to focus on these. I was fortunate in finding an excellent coach who helped me understand my own mindset. Over the years I completed further training to become a Massage Therapist, Pilates Instructor and a breath re-education instructor. I have used my increased level of knowledge to develop an approach that reset my hormones, managed my weight and helped me really enjoy my life more.
The final piece in the jigsaw was when I qualified as a Women’s Coach. Coaching is a practical approach that encourages us to develop confidence, agency (’soft power’) and the ability to make lasting changes in our lives.
I now use a coaching approach with all my clients. I have learned that this is most effective, and achieves more sustainable results. Over the years I have worked with women who come with their own perceived needs. However often a client would come for an exercise programme and it would emerge that she would also benefit from nutritional therapy. Or alternatively a client who wanted nutritional change would become confident to begin exercising again. Sometimes we came to realise that food or exercise can be used to cope with boundary and emotional issues such as ‘overwhelm’ or lack of purpose. For this reason I offer flexible coaching that employs my range of specialisms with one ultimate goal – to enhance the individual woman’s physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
I am passionate and committed to supporting women over 40, who might be struggling to manage the changes going on in their body, their health and energy levels, and their life in general. I adopt a personalised approach with each client, but always with the same ultimate goal – helping women to feel mentally and physically confident and ready to enjoy the best years of their lives.
