Hello, I am Rachel Anne Hobbs, I am a clinically trained dietitian, certified therapist and have been voted one of the top 10 exercise trainers in the world. I am an Iron(wo)man, powerlifting champion of Europe, specialist Dietitian to the British Army, traveller, geek, foodie, lover of all things science and a very proud mummy to a beautiful human.
I live for watching the sunset, deep conversations about things that truly matter, swimming amongst the sea waves, the first sip of morning coffee, running through forests, baking fresh bread, watching the world go by in peaceful cafés, going on bear hunts, carrot cake and reading books that touch my soul.
My work with clients is compassion led; I truly believe that choices and changes made from a place of self kindness, mindfulness and common humanity will be the most rewarding and beneficial. My aim is to merge my knowledge, skills and over a decade of experience in nutrition, exercise training and mindset with the latest evidence based research to educate, empower and motivate you to reach your goals and truly enjoy your body. I use tools including dietetic counselling, CBT and CBT-E, meal coaching, food exposure therapy and nutritional education depending on your personal needs.
I am currently completely my three year Psychotherapeutic Counselling training with the renowned Chryssalis centre to up skill myself to enable to support my clients on a deeper level.
My favourite part of my work is getting the opportunity to witness my clients flourish, whether in health, confidence, sporting performance or all three. I currently specialise in the areas of dysfunctional eating, sporting performance and compassionate weight management.
I work as a freelance dietitian with personal clients and small groups as well as with with larger business and corporations including the British Army, Talented Athlete Support Scheme, Surrey Storm, Surrey Scholars, Guildford City, Colgate, Musclefood, and R/GA .
