Hi there, I’m Laura and welcome to my other corner of the internet! Here you’ll find blog posts with top tips for running an online wellness business, my musings on living a more intentional life, with a bit of woo woo thrown in.

I’m a certified health coach and blogger who’s really passionate about supporting other women to live amazing lives, whether that’s through self care and finding balance with food, living more intentionally, exploring spirituality or creating a business that enables them to do something they love.

In fact, my journey started with weight loss, but moved through improving my relationship with food, waking back up to my spirituality and then getting really intentional about the life I wanted to create. I see many women also taking a similar journey so in lots of ways this site is a natural progression for myself and others.

I’m proud that wholeheartedlyhealthy.com now gets well over 100,000 views a month, that I’ve published two recipe books, won Blogger of the Year at the British Health Journalism Awards and most importantly, that I’ve worked with hundreds of women to help them improve their health and wellbeing and relationship with food. I’m no overnight success story, but I’m worked hard to grow my business to fit my dreams, I never dread a days work, and really, it’s just fucking awesome!

I hope you enjoy taking a look around the site and checking out some of my blog posts!

I live in North East England with my partner James and my 2 year old son Finley.

My journey to create a successful online business started in 2012 when I decided to become a Certified Health Coach with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I’d been blogging since 2010 and when my existing jobs funding wasn’t renewed (I worked as a project manager for a charity) I decided to take the plunge. I already had an MA in Community Studies and Youth Work and at first my plan had been to run healthy living projects for young people out in the community which I did for a couple of years. When I found out I was pregnant I knew the time had come to go completely self employed and gradually I made my business into what it is today.
