Bernadette

Hi my name is Bernadette Dancy and I am a Health and Exercise Coach specialising in nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle interventions for people suffering with stress overwhelm and butnout.

Stress is a complex problem often suffered by people who spend their lives striving and working so hard for their family, career and/or sport, that they find themselves exhausted, burnt-out and struggling with their health.

As a mother of two energetic boys and business owner I understand what it is like to balance health and family life. As such my passion is to help other people do the same.

With over 15 years’ experience as a Senior Lecturer in Health and Exercise Science, a PhD in Sport Psychology, a Master’s degree in Preventive Cardiology and professional qualifications in Personal Training and Exercise Referral, I would say I am very equipped to help people make changes to their physical AND mental health that are LONG LASTING.

Whether working one-to-one with clients or in a workshop setting, my approach is underpinned by scientific research as well as theories in health and exercise psychology.

My philosophy is to educate and empower people towards improved physical and mental health using small significant changes that won’t overwhelm but fit seamlessly into their busy lives.

When I’m not coaching others, I enjoy running long slow distances. With two Ultra Marathons and several marathons in the bag I understands the benefits of exercise first hand and is passionate about helping others capitalise on the use of nutrition and exercise as medicine.

If you’re reading this and feel sick and tired of trying new health kicks but never making long term progress, or your feeling tired, exhausted and overwhelmed then please do get in touch. My coaching programme is designed specifically with you in mind.

I also offer a free initial consultation to see if we are a good fit.

Here’s what one of my clients said about me…

“I came to Bernie looking for help to restore some balance into my life. The daily stresses and stains of working and having a young family were starting to put my health at the bottom of my ‘to do’ list and I needed some motivation to get in a good place mentally and physically.

Now I feel far more in control of the choices I make, both in what I eat and where I spend my energy. Not only do I feel I’ve learnt a lot about my health and nutrition, Bernie has provided incredibly supportive guidance and encouragement, without any judgement. I would recommend health coaching with Bernie to everyone. Taking time to invest in myself is one of my best achievements this year”
