Nice to meet you...
I’ve always been driven to help others. It was my dream to be a doctor and help others live a healthy life and be there for them when they were ill.
I guess I saw myself as superhuman and I definitely didn’t take my own advice. When I was struggling to keep up I thought that just meant I had to work harder and longer.
This was at the same time as being a homemaker and a wife. It all came to a head one afternoon, a phone call from an unhappy doctor that was venting their frustrations on me.
I put down the phone, packed up my desk and left the office, I didn’t realise at the time that I wouldn’t return.
I didn’t see what was happening, I hadn’t seen that I was burnt out and for the first time in my life, pushing myself harder and further wasn’t the answer.
I had a complete blindspot where my health and mental wellness was concerned. My totally supportive husband Paul, suggested a fresh start.
My family and friends had been ringing the alarm bells for years, but I wasn’t ready to listen. I was listening now!
We moved to the island of Alderney and I began the process of healing and getting my life back into balance.
It took my totally burning out and changing my life completely to realise what was important to me and how to live my best life.
I became determined to help others, I led myself to a breakdown, I wanted to use that experience to support others before their live’s imploded like mine.
Learning to help others was part of my journey to recovery and discovery. I love learning so I added to my skills as a doctor with further qualifications as a life coach, health coach and nutritional coach.
I love my work helping people go from feeling stressed to calm, seeing weight fall off naturally, smiling for no reason and enjoying life more.
You can be aspirational, successful and enjoy your life. But it is tricky to do alone, I act as a guide to help others find balance in all aspects of their lives.
Whether you feel that food is ruling you, or you’d like to feel calmer and happier, it is all connected and you can break free from the trap of feeling like you are running but getting nowhere. I did.
Jane Durston, Health Coaching and Nutrition
How important is a healthy diet to someone’s health and wellbeing?
For me nutrition is the basis to a healthy life . There is so much information out there now- and a lot of misinformation so that it's difficult to weed it all out and know what is the right thing to do. In this case an expert to give your the right information at the right time can be key. I an provide specialist eating plans to help control type 2 diabetes and IBS as well as other conditions.
What do you love most about your job?
Watching people achieve positive lasting changes in their life and health in a way that that they never thought possible. My packages with weekly session on phone, Skype or Zoom offer you small steps forward each week so It doesn't feel as though it's hard work . It builds into your daily life so it becomes part of it. I always like to say" It doesn't matter that its a small step, as long as it's in the right direction"
What inspired you to start your own business?
I suffered with depression and burnout myself and have had some issues with disordered eating. Using nutrition and coaching I have improved my health 99%(we can always do more!) so I have experienced many of the issues my clients have. I also know the value of coaching and nutrition and how they fit together so well. This was my basis to start my own business
