Celiac Coaching

New to a Gluten-Free Lifestyle or Celiac diagnosis? Feeling overwhelmed and daunted by everything?

Are you struggling with knowing what to do after you were told to "just go off gluten"?

Hi, I'm Bonnie

I know how you feel, I too once felt lost, alone, anxious, overwhelmed and confused.

There is a lot to learn about this autoimmune condition (and I am still learning even after 9 years!) and a lot to change after you go off gluten.

That is why I became a health coach specifically, not only to help people transition to a life with Celiac disease but how to live their best healthy life in the years to come after that.

Who am I?

Certified Health Coach

I trained at the International Sports Science Association. I am also someone who has Celiac Disease myself.

Accredited DNAylsis Genetic practitioner

I am a trained  DNAylsis practitioner in Nutrigenetics. Using the power of genetics to help you make healthy choices for the better expression of your genes.

Gluten-free baker of 9 years

I have developed many of my own recipes. I started my own home bakery business in 2020.

My coaching program

This is a 12 week coaching program aimed at helping you as a newly diagnosed Celiac in a  step by step process to help you learn how to transition to a gluten-free lifestyle and deal with the day to day challenges that come with it. 

Each week you will receive a coaching call followed by a recap email that will have resources in for that week as well as “homework” assignments for you to work on during the week.

Your program is structured but it is also personalized to YOUR health needs with recommended (but optional) DNA genetic testing.

Please note that with coaching there are no meal plans or specific calorie or nutritional content given. 

As a health coach I educate you on basic nutrition but anything more specific, you will need to consult with a dietician or nutritionist.

My coaching is centered more on evidence based education so that you can bridge the gap between mindset and behavior changes to achieve better overall health outcomes.

My coaching is more about teaching you to use the tools you already possess, helping you to make your own health decisions, supporting you, educating you and helping you to transition to a life with Celiac disease.

There is nothing medical about coaching. Health involves being knowledgeable so that we can make better choices, it also involves making lifestyle and environmental changes, all of which I help you with.

See what some of my clients have said...

I have been struggling with anxiety and weight issues for more than 15 years now. In the short time I have been doing coaching with Bonnie, I already feel better about myself and I finally feel like I will be able to reach my goals. It is so nice having someone who cares about your success and that is checking up on you. Bonnie is a great coach.

Thanks Bonnie for helping me put the pieces together so that the healing can begin. You have helped me understand the effects of food inside my body and motivated me not to give up. I have been to so many professionals for help and you are the first person who picked up that I may have Celiac. After getting a positive result I have been even more confidence in your ability as my coach. Thank you!
Cherise Smit
Bonnie is a great health coach because of her holistic approach. She worked with me to connect the issues and to find the root cause. In just 3 months of weekly appointments, I made unimaginable progress in how I viewed myself, and began to take the necessary steps towards better health. She also suggested I do DNA testing so I could put the power back into my hands.
