My name is Vanessa Haydock, also known as ‘The Diabetic Health Coach’, a qualified personal trainer, nutritional advisor, life coach and Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA), living with Type 1 Diabetes since the age of three years old.
Growing up, I struggled to comes to terms with my Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis, which made controlling the condition a lot more of a struggle during my adolescence. However, following my retinopathy diagnosis, this caused me to change my ways for the better, creating a passion to control my Diabetes the best that I can and to also help others going through the same thing, whereby I now aim to lead by example.
Over the years, I have come to learn that leading a healthy lifestyle and taking up healthier habits has had a significant impact on my own control and motivation, leading me to want to help others living with Diabetes to achieve their health and fitness related goals. I aim to motivate, empower and support my clients as much as I can, as I completely understand what it is like to live with Type 1 Diabetes day to day and the obstacles we face.
I currently offer a wide range of services, tailored to each individual including:
- Online Diabetes health and fitness coaching
- Online Diabetes life coaching
- Health behaviour change consultation
- 1:1 personal training
