Welcome to The Thriving Hormones Circle
A 90 day women’s coaching programme for Thriving & Balanced Hormones
It takes 90 days for a mature egg to be ready for release & you only need 1 to get pregnant. Unfortunately you cannot control the number of eggs that grow which also do decrease with age. What we can control is the quality of your eggs. I will help support you to increase fertility friendly foods whilst decreasing inflammation which will help you increase your chances of becoming pregnant naturally.
Happy ovulation = Happy periods.
The land of Hormones, periods, and fertility can be scary, daunting and a little lonely. I can absolutely relate and have been where some of you are right now. Perhaps on a journey to motherhood now or in the future or just looking to live a life free of debilitating menstrual issues. Whether you nodded to either of these goals the priority will still be having a healthy ovulation which is responsible for symptom free periods or improved fertility.
I experienced horrific periods in my teens, and remember being curled up in bed wanting to vomit from the pain but my option given was to go on the pill. I took the advice after all this advice was coming from my doctor !
Moving into my 30’s I remember the excitement of deciding we were going to start trying for a baby. . I mean I was fit, I was healthy and only 32. This would be easy right!? Wrong, over 5 year I experienced 5 miscarriages including a 20 week full labour loss. Followed by reports on a possible blocked fallopian tube, and the wrong shaped uterus. I mean give me a break universe.
I felt broken, empty and full of guilt even though I was not at fault. But I was determined, I had a dream. After a lot of tears and wine, I put my heart and soul into learning EVERYTHING I could to help my body and mind heal. To make my body a baby friendly machine. The knowledge of doing everything I could helped me to move from the past and focus on the future.
“A goal without a plan is just a wish”
The magic in my experience
At the time I could not see any positives in my situation. But what I did know was I was on a mission, I had a purpose and I was driven to understanding, and educating myself on how the female body worked.
- What food optimized fertility, our gut, our hormones.
- What role stress played with optimising fertility, egg quality, period health.
- How imbalanced blood sugar was at the root of most hormonal problems.
- How to tap into the power of nature through herbs and aromatherapy.
- Learning to tap into my female menstrual cycle superpowers working with the 4 phases of my cycle to live in flow and optimizing all my hormones and my fertility (read more here on cycle syncing).
- Which types of exercises are best during the 4 phases to reduce stress and inflammation all negatively impacting my fertility.
- How meditation, mindset and a little moon manifestation is good for the soul and making babies.
I reached out to Michelle and soon joined her 3 month Happy Hormones & Happy weight programme because I was looking for support with the fibroids, my fertility and my energy level, as I was exhausted very easily. What I really enjoyed about working with Michelle was that she made me understand the root cause of my problem. She helped me change my mindset about nutrition and having a healthy lifestyle. The shift/result that happened because of working with Michelle was that I could manage my energy levels better throughout the day and at the end of the programme I got pregnant.
My happy ending
With support from the amazing miscarriage clinic at St Marys, London and the power of everything I will be covering in my Thriving hormones circle I was given the greatest gift in 2017 of a little girl called Effie and again in 2019 with a beautiful little boy called Titus.
My mission is now to educate and support women such as you my lovely to achieve your dream of becoming a Mama.
Or maybe you’re at the start of your journey and looking to live a life without debilitating periods holding you back from living your desired life.
I am starting fertility treatment want to be in the best physical and mental shape so that I have the best chance of success. Michelle has been brilliant and very positive and supportive. She looked at my diet and made me a personalised plan with some great suggestions and recipes. It has given me the confidence to mindfully think about what I’m eating to make sure I nourish my body. I have dramatically cut down on processed sugar and have introduced more pulses and beans etc and am feeling really good. I consciously try and include a wide variety of foods throughout the day rather than just always eating the same things. Diet chances have also really improved my eczema. I’ve also upped my exercise as well and am feeling really positive. The changes I have made have had a knock-on effect on my family and we are all eating better. Thanks Michelle!
To restore natural fertility we have to know and understand the root cause of your issues, not just treating the symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I cannot make all the live coaching calls?
All sessions will be recorded and sent to you within 24 hours. You can also submit any questions you have prior to the call.
Do I have to join for the full 3 months?
I absolutely recommend 3 months as this is the minimum time needed to see results. You will see improvements throughout the programme. But when we look at the time needed for an egg to mature enough to be released is 90 days. My wish for all my clients is for them to succeed in their fertility and happy hormones journey which is why it is a 90 day programme. A nutritional power hour is available for those women who just need some support with one particular area to get started.
Do I need to get tested to get results?
Everything we do in The Thriving Hormones Circle is to encourage balanced hormones and long lasting results, not quick fixes. We work through a step by step protocol each month encouraging healing the whole body getting to the root of most people’s problems. Testing can give us a more in debt look into how your hormones are performing as an individual. Therefore giving you more specific information on what to prioritise. I am happy to discuss these options with you.
I have had tests done by my doctor and everything came back normal do I still need to do this programme?
I think the fact that you still don’t feel great is an indication that all is not well. Doctors are trained to diagnose and treat disease, I am not. Your doctor will check your test results for numbers that are outside of ranges used to diagnose disease. So if your doctor says everything looks great… but you don’t feel great, I am here to help you. Unfortunately sometimes the numbers that deem normal may still mean you are under par NOT optimum level which can still cause a lot of hormonal issues for women. As a nutritionist, I can recognise the grey area between a state of disease and optimal health
Can you guarantee results?
As with most other nutritionists , I cannot guarantee results with any of my clients. The majority of my clients have had wonderful results, including pregnancies, reduced period pain, cravings, reduced weight, and managed anxiety. All from making small shifts around food and mindset. It is my goal to provide you with a road map based on the information you provide me but due to the individuality of each client I can’t guarantee a specific outcome. I am here to be your coach and cheerleader but it is you who must make the choices and implement this information to your life. But I will be here supporting you and educating you each step of the way.
Do you give refunds once the programme is started?
Unfortunately I do not give refunds once you have started on the programme.
What if I require some one-on-one coaching?
Absolutely and a lot of my group coaching clients add on some monthly 1-1 nutrition /personal training coaching for that extra 1-1 support in order to really focus on those fertility and period results.
How are the programmes delivered?
This is something we will discuss as each programme differs. I offer online, face to face, and group coaching. You will have workshops, cheat sheets, workbooks and recipe guides to help you map on each part of your wellness journey making it as effective and user friendly as possible.
I am vegetarian, can I participate in this programme?
Absolutely as I have also a vegetarian option recipe guide.
I cannot eat gluten is this programme suitable for me?
Yes absolutely the recipes are all gluten free.
I have food intolerances and allergies. Can I adapt the recipes?
Absolutely, the recipes are designed to be low allergenic . But you can discuss this further with Michelle on swap out ideas.
What if I go off track during the programme?
The Programme is designed to give you the education to make long term decisions that impact your hormonal well being. Progress not perfection. No one is perfect 100% of the time, not even me. If you fall off track then don’t stress, accept, move on and get back on track the next day.
