Q: How were you inspired to start your business?

Through my own health journey really, I used to work at a gym and was following the regular guidelines of exercise more and eat less, but instead of getting healthier I was becoming more sick and tired. I had IBS, low energy, mood swings, lower back pain, thyroid issues and a low sex drive. That’s when I decided that something had to change. I came across the CHEK Institute who I had been aware of for a while, I attended a seminar they ran at a fitness weekender and I was hooked, what they talked about resonated so much with me that I attended everything they did that weekend and by the end of it I was booked onto my first course. That was the start of my journey of wellbeing. From this I decided to change or upgrade what I was currently doing to incorporate this new found knowledge, I have completed many other courses since then and have devoted myself to helping people with gut issues such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease such as Crohn’s and Colitis.

Q: How much do you love what you do?

Sooooo much! Whenever I’m in conversation with people and I talk about the achievements of my clients and how they got there people see, hear and feel the passion in my conversation. I have a great sense of pride for my clients and their experience of their journey of health and wellbeing.

Q: If you could go back to a point in your life when you were facing a challenge, what inspirational advice would you give yourself?

Follow your heart, do good, respect yourself, be happy and go for it! Things have a way of working themselves out.

Q: Tell us how your business inspires your customers!

When clients come to me their lives maybe on a downward slide, being holistic I work on many aspects including things like self purpose, values, goal setting just to name a few. My clients can end up taking a different outlook on life and its possibilities including things like work and relationships.

Q: Knowing you aren’t alone in something and that there is light at the end of the tunnel means a lot when you are feeling low. What is a typical problem someone you work with might be facing and how do you guide them back into the light?

Mmm, there are a few. Why don’t I let one of my clients tell you, here’s Christine:
“Bloating, cramps, diarrhoea, lethargy, mood swings, brain fog are just a few of the symptoms I mentioned to Correana when we met less than a year ago. After a few lab tests, one for food intolerance and another for gut pathogens, and keeping a food diary, I found out that I was Gluten and Dairy intolerant, which can also be an indicator for leaky gut. Correana advised me on better food choices and educated me on why certain foods are a no-no and other foods that would help my condition. It wasn’t easy at times, trying to eliminate certain favourites; sometimes I lapsed and paid for it! Then I could feel the difference without these toxic foods in my system. With regular meetings and Correana only a phone call away, I felt more positive and embraced my lifestyle changes. I am now 2.5 stones lighter, I am headache free, I have so much more energy, I am calmer, less irritable, sleep better. My family and friends have noticed that my skin is clearer, I have nails. I am happy, settled and looking forward to the future thanks to Correana.”

Q: As people we are always evolving and learning things on our life journey. Where do you find inspiration?

From mentors such as Emma Lane of Integrative Health Education, I have learnt so much from her over the years. Also from inspirational people such as Louise Hay and Esther Hicks, and just surrounding myself with positive people always helps.

Q: Businesses are always evolving too… what are you inspired to do next?

To keep growing as a business, I’d love to do regular talks, webinars, podcasts and Facebook live broadcasts.
