The Brain Health Programme is a nutrition and lifestyle coaching programme delivered. It has been designed to optimise brain health and cognitive function using a multi-modal nutrition and lifestyle approach.
This year I am running this as a 2 day event on Sunday the 6th October and 2nd November. I will cover three modules on both dates and then send weekly emails with encouragement and homework to focus on between appointments. A healthy brain friendly lunch will be provided both days.
Nutrition for brain health
Optimising gut health
Getting a good night’s sleep
Each module is designed to help you engage with every aspect of the programme and understand what you need to do to optimise brain function. The workshops include talks, activities and discussion to show you how to make, and sustain, lifelong food and lifestyle choices to improve brain health.
Of course, we don’t just eat because we are hungry – being bored, upset, and the sight or smell of food can all cause us to eat, sometimes hijacking our good intentions and causing us to make poor food choices or to overeat. The Brain Health Programme will start you on the journey towards understanding and changing your relationship with food, with the goal of helping you make long-term, sustainable behaviour changes.
Who is the programme for?
If you are concerned about your risk of cognitive decline now or in the future, perhaps because you have experienced brain fog, poor memory, anxiety, low mood, stress or a reduction in your ability to concentrate, or maybe you have a family member that has been diagnosed with dementia, then you might be interested in attending an introductory talk to find out more about the dietary and lifestyle choices you could adopt to support brain health and maintain healthy cognitive function.
I just thought I’d thank you for running such a great course! Although it was always a rush to get there I really miss it and got a lot out of it!
So thanks very much for all the advice from the course and from Graham’s consultation with you. I’ve lost about half a stone and several inches from the waist. We continue to walk – we did almost seven miles last Wednesday, seven miles (before lunch) yesterday and four miles today.
I had lost some weight before starting the course with Fiona, however since attending the course I have lose more weight – just over a stone in total and my cholesterol has dropped from 6.8 to 4.6!
For the last six weeks you have transformed the way I feel about food. Thank you, not just for me but my family who are all much healthier as a result.
The Doctor was really pleased with his weight loss and new attitude toward food, life and diabetes. All thanks and gratitude to you. I have been on Fiona’s course 3 times and every time it’s different and I learn something new.

Thanks for putting on such a wonderful course. I truly enjoyed it and have taken such a lot on board.
Thank you so much for a thoroughly enjoyable course. I learn’t lots as well as building upon my existing understanding of nutrition. It was such a lovely group – you never know I may well turn into a frequenter like Lyn! It’s a bit addictive.?
I have thoroughly enjoyed Fiona’s nutrition courses. I repeated the course because there was a lot to learn. I was empowered with knowledge, and enjoyed the fact that she also offered healthy food for us to try, and decide if it was to our taste. It exceeded expectations, and in this way we also learned how to prepare delicious healthy food. For me it translated into a realistic way to maintain my weight. I understood that exercise has to go hand on hand with healthy eating to maintain a healthy weight. Like many people, I thought I already knew what healthy eating was, but the course made me realize that I had a lot to learn.
