A Guide to The

YourOneLife Framework for Success™

My unique approach is to work around your life, not around a set plan.

I developed the YourOneLife Framework for Success to help people to determine where they need to focus their attention in order to manage their weight well for life. I consider it vital that all elements of the Framework are in place and working in harmony for us to be successful.

If something is missing we will always struggle. Each of us will have different strengths and weaknesses. All areas are important to work through but by knowing where we are individually against each area, we can then prioritise working more intensively on those areas. We review it at regular intervals to make sure we are focussing on the things you need.

We build up the layers, in order, working through various mindset exercises as we go, so that eventually you have a complete system, that you can use to apply to your weight loss journey, and a toolbox complete with various tools that you can use to keep you on track when it gets tough. It’s also helpful to apply in other areas of your life too.

This is the general process that we will follow, but the key really is in the IMPLEMENTATION. I can guide you and support you, but you will still need to do the work.

  • Develop a long term vision, and find out why you want it

  • Make your plans

I cover the framework in detail in my Preparing for Successful Weight Loss e-book, taking readers through it, but the key really is in the IMPLEMENTATION. That’s where having coaching and support can help, either 1:1 or in a community like my Members Club, or both with the Gold membership and accountability options. The idea is that it is used as a manual, not something to be read once and put away, as in order to be successful, we have to keep working at it, and not get complacent. Just like going to the gym we wouldn’t expect to be fit and strong after one or a few sessions, this is a workout plan for your mind that you have to commit to on an ongoing basis. Trust me, it’s worth it because this is what will change your behaviour for the long term.

Some of those who have bought my e-book have found that it’s been enough, but for others it’s the support they get to work through what’s in it, and being held to account, that makes the difference. I can work with you at a conscious level, going through the mindset exercises, but I can also employ various techniques including hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming, (NLP) to help you control and harness your emotional brain, if you’re having trouble getting it on board and continue to self-sabotage.

I offer various bespoke packages to fit with people’s needs, time and budgets
